Fly is the up-to-the-minute release from Confederacy Chicks, and I can only believe of one word to depict it… AWESOME!
It's a rare twenty-four hours indeed that I acquire a cadmium from an creative person that I can truthfully state makes not have got a bad path in the bunch. I'm more than happy to denote that's exactly what I must state about this one. There simply isn't a bad 1 in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on it's own.
Fly is a pleasantly varied, premix of 14 paths that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly talented musicians. With many of the songs displaying a batch of the sort emotion that brands for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only conceive of are their ain existent life experiences. At different points touching on the most existent emotions of love, heartbreak, pain, failed human relationships and unachievable romance. They're all here.
Overall Fly is a solid release. Quite possibly Confederacy Chicks's best to date. Really sensational from beginning to end. If you're level mildly into Country music you'll bask this CD.
While the full cadmium is really very good some of my favourites are path 2 - If I Fall You're Going Down With Me, path 7 - Don't Waste Your Heart, and path 10 - Some Days You Gotta Dance
My Bonus Pick, and the 1 that got Sensitive [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is path 11 - Hole In My Head. This is a great track!
