I got Carrie’s sophomore album copy as a birthday present. And as excpected, since I am already a Carrie freak, I so loved it! I actually had this on my wish list, and thank God three of my friends complied. That’s why, no doubt, it is now my favorite gift for the entire year!
Ok, so should I even start praising the entire album and its songs?! Probably not, because I hate to patronize, and for sure I’d be bias about this. I’ll just pick some that I really like at the moment. Remember that I just started listening to it, like a couple of weeks, that’s why I can’t say that I know all the songs by heart (like her debut album Some Hearts, which I uber super LOOOVE!!). I especially like the track titled I Know You Won’t and the sentiment that goes with it. You can really feel the emotions of the song, and Carrie delivered it so well. So Small and Wheel Of The World, on the other hand, were noticeably the inspiring ones that perfectly describes a staple Underwood style. My favorite line goes like this, “Sometimes that mountain you’ve been climbing is just a grain of sand. And what you’ve been out there searchin’ for forever is in your hands.”
My personal picks are the tracks that really gets me going everytime I listen to it, All-American Girl and of course Last Name. I wish someday, even in my dreams, I’d be the guy Carrie would sing Last Name to. Coz she’d realy have a hard time pronouncing my last name haha! It may be too late for me to have a copy of the album, but whattadaheck, it’s worth the wait. 😉
Ok, again, I might be too late in reading this one (I am such a loser hehe!) but I am so enjoying it now. I’ve heard so much fuss about this book that’s why I got so interested to check it out. Accidentally, when a friend and I passed by Powerbooks yesterday and saw piles of the newly released Breaking Dawn, it’s like its spirits are summoning me to buy one. And so I did, the first part that is. Coz a friend told me that it would be much better if I started reading the first book.
And now, I am and I’m so lovin’ it! I am not even halfway through, but the excitement is already there. I am beginning to get hooked! I even brought it to the office, so that I can read it during my breaks and while idle time on taking calls. Much to my delight, it is indeed a good read. I know I’ll get hook even more as I turn every pages. Even this early, I am eagerly thinking of buying the other books! I so can’t wait to read them all.
I am also very excited about its movie version to be shown December this year! For sure I’m done reading all four books when that time comes. I checked some reviews online and watched the trailer, and it made me swear to finish reading the book right away! Like right now haha! 😉
