Overview

On their sixth album, Unstoppable, Rascal Flatts trade their "aw shucks" persona for a title that Michael Jackson somehow missed in his King of Pop phase, and act like superstars rather than boys next door made good. Almost nothing about Unstoppable is modest, not the sounds, not the sentiments -- only the songs, whether they're sports-bar party anthems like "Summer Nights"; glistening, tightly wound crossover pop like "Close" and its breezy counterpart "She'd Be California"; or arena ballads like the first single, "Here Comes Goodbye." Despite a lot of driving, sequenced rhythms, most of the record feels as if it belongs in the arena ballad category, thanks to how every track comes across as waves of gleaming sound topped by the group's harmonies. The smoothness is overwhelming and Rascal Flatts seem certain of their own invincibility.

I use to worry if a new Rascal Flatts would be able to put out an album as FANTASTIC as their previous one. This time around, there were no worries and Rascal Flatts didn't dissapoint! Unstoppable is truely Unstoppable and just as good as their past c.d.'s! I have been looking forward to this release for over a year, and the wait was worth every second!

It is always a step forward for the members of Rascal Flatts (Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus, Joe Don Rooney), and never a step back. With the release of their sixth studio album, "Unstoppable," this record-setting Vocal Group of the Year strives to capture a wide range of emotions in the songs so as to provide their fans with lyrics that capture moments in their lives, and they do so in a way not even they have yet done. From the haunting vocals on "Forever" that have the ability to bring tears to the eyes to the upbeat tempo with incredible harmonies on "Summer Nights," these songs reach across all boundaries set by other artists of every genre. With every new release, Rascal Flatts strive to release at least one song that touches the heart with its poignancy. On "Unstoppable," that song comes in the form of "Why," a heartbreaking ballad about the end of a "beautiful song" that stands as an implied metaphor for life. Through the simplicity of the instrumentals and vocals, this song attempts to bring sense to a suicide and delivers beautifully. Other highlights on this disc include "Once," "Unstoppable," and "Close," but every track deserves a listening.

Rascal Flatts is THE best musical group out there.They deserve all the acolades that they have received. I haven't met another group whose music has the ability to touch the hearts and lives of everyone.They cross the bridge between musical genres so well that their music is listened to by all age groups.I myself became a fan years ago and have never looked back. I wasn'r into country music until a friend played one of their songs. It touched me and I instantly became a fan of theirs.Their music has helped me through the difficult times i have faced. This CD is no different. They went above and beyond what I was expecting. I completely recommend this CD to everyone out there. **Laura H**

HI my name is pam arnold. Rascal Flatts new album "Unstoppable" is so wonderful. It has the band's original sound which is so great. The songs are so emotional, for example, "Here Comes Goodbye" is sad and once you seen the video you will understand. My favorite song is the title track "Unstoppable". I really did enjoy this album. I recomend this album to anyone who likes country music with a twist. Rascal Flatts "Unstoppable" would be a great gift or just buy it for youself. It is wonderful. The band itself puts their self into their music it will make you fall in love with them and their music. So pick up your copy. You wont regret it. This album tops their other albums. There is only one word that can sum up rascal flatts and there music and it is "Unstoppable".

I love this new Album from Rascal Flatts. They really took there time with this one. There voices have also matured comparing to there other great albums. The song "Holdin' On" is one of my favorites as it was written for my girlfriend and I. the songs "Summer Nights" and "She'd Be California" are the two most up beat and fun songs on this new record. The whole CD is a great buy and I guarantee that you'll love it as much as I do!

This is a great cd - Here Comes Goodbye is an emotional song that went all the way to #1 and the new release, Summer Nights, is sure to do the same. Rascal Flatts always delivers a fine performance. I have seen them twice at Madison Square Garden NYC and both shows were exciting and enjoyable. They should be nominated for Entertainer of the Year - they always give it all for the audience.

I love the whole CD!! I wake up in the morning listening to their music, and fall sleep at night doing the same. She´d be california is my last favorite song. I dont like it at all. I love Close, Once, Here comes Goodbye, && Why. The songs are lovely, and full of feeling. They express deep feelings. This CD is perfect for somebody who´s in love.

I have many of their CD's - I like their music so I'm biased as to this review. I know they don't sound as good in person - from my own experience and from others that I have asked. Good music - great words - last song will make you cry if you know anyone that was very young and committed suicide. If you have a failed relationship, many songs you can relate too as well. Some upbeat songs - not my favorite - but that is just my taste.

I really like them, but sometimes they're s little too poppy for me. But overall, it's just really a fun CD to listen to, especially when your driving to a far clogging convention Good job, guys.
