The follow-up to the enormously successful SOME HEARTS, former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood's second album moves away from the Shania Twain-like pop influences of her debut into a purer form of country music that focuses on her remarkable voice. Comparisons to Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire,and Faith Hill are valid, especially on songs like the twangy first single "So Small." That song is one of four co-written by Underwood; the remaining three are among the strongest on the album, alongside a heartfelt cover of Randy Travis's "I Told You So" and the wry "The More Boys I Meet." CARNIVAL RIDE is a much more self-assured and personal album than SOME HEARTS, and it's a straightforward slice of contemporary Nashville country at its best.

This cd has lots of fabulous songs; up beat and some sad, but they're all really great. She has an amazing voice.

Carrie Underwood Carnival 2 disc set

I waited for this Sophomore CD and it was worth the wait! I love all the songs and was pleased to see that Carrie had a lot more say in this CD than her first. She is an excellent singer and song writer. She will definitely go far in Country Music. I will recommend this CD to add to your collection.
