Review: Carrie Underwood, Some Hearts

Carrie Underwood: Some Hearts
Arista Nashville

Finally, Church of the Rock parishioners disillusioned by the estrangement of Creed can find solace in hip music to which all the kids are listening. Sweet to Kelly Clarkson's skank, Some Hearts' is a perfect stocking stuffer for the post-pubescent Protestant male—wholesome, holy, and when used as masturbatory inspiration, God doesn't kill a kitten. The music is analogous; following up her single, “Jesus, Take the Wheel”, Carrie Underwood's afflatus country is the album of the year for Wal-Mart single moms and just faux-rock enough to prove she would kick Clay Aiken's ass in a steel cage match.
