Overview

For fans of tight, tuneful group harmony, Little Big Town is made to order. This rare coed country quartet comes out of the box with a radio-ready sound, courtesy of talented producer Blake Chancey, but not without a bit of meat on its state-of-the-art pop-country bones. Focusing on the myriad aspects of relationships, the group's original songs are largely upbeat, counseling optimism in trying times. The steadily pulsating love song "Never Felt Love" describes a skeptical fellow who meets his dream girl and comes to believe in the power of love. Believing is the theme of "Tryin'," a power-country tale of a girl leaving home to make it big in Nashville. Six years later, she's still reaching for the brass ring, between shifts at the local greasy spoon, but the message, sung by voices layered one on top of the other in intoxicating fashion, is that "it's about hopin', it's about dreamin', it's about never not believin'." "Stay," a luxurious ballad, recounts the final moments of a breakup, with the woman asking her man to hang around until she gathers strength to move forward -- even in this desperate hour, the Little Big Town women sing in silky-smooth harmony of the certainty that they will recover. Little Big Town's bromides may be a bit too simplistic for some, their production a bit too slick for others, but their message is strong, and their natural skill and well-honed vocal chops bode well for the future of this promising group.
