Like I said. Take it for what it's worth.
You heard it here first:
1) Both "COUNTRY STRONG" and "ME & TENNESEE" will be nominated for Best Song when Oscar comes a callin' this year.
2) Although Country Strong is beautiful, maybe SUPERB, Me and Tennesee is simply sublime, like no other song you've heard, different, beautiful, soaring, memorable, ONE FOR THE TIME CAPSULE. The harmonies will just stay with you forever. THIS SONG WILL WIN.
3) The Oscar ceremony MUST include a live duet of Me and T, sung by these 2. It will be SO POWERFUL, it will be one of the most memorable, electric Oscar performances ever. So make it happen powers that be. The people (person) have spoken.
Now for my revised and updated original review (increases stars to the max for it really needs a couple listens to fully appreciate, added some more text):
I must begin this review by stating that I am a huge fan of Tim Mcgraw, sort of a Faith Hill fan on ocassion, and importantly, a long-standing fan of the BEAUTIFUL, smooth-as-honey singing voice of the supremely talented Gwyneth Paltrow. Having been BOWLED over by the totally unexpected GP vocal gifts exhibited in DUETS, (out of nowhere at the time), especially Cruisin' and Just My Imagination (both pop classics, those renditions)- I was on the edge of my seat for months anticipating Country Strong. Then came the titular single last month. EXCELLENT - very strong and catchy. Great song. Passed my marker which is me singing it constantly in the shower. So, I was first up at Best Buy last night. Just imagining a duet with Tim McGraw! Those 2 together! (BTW GP's voice, pure and crystal clear, has an inherent twang to it, PERFECTLY suited for country). Bought the CD last night. It's a keeper, with some great, some sublime, one so-so track as follows:
Track 1: "Country Strong", the title track, is a winner. Correct to put that out as the initial single. Pathos, emotion, strength, a super voice, individual, unique. Beautiful. Future classic. Every time the word "fragile" is uttered I get a little teary eyed.
Track 2: "Love Don't Let Me Down", a cute little ditty from Chris Young and Patty Loveless. Cute, took a few spins but now can't get it out of my head.
Track 3: "A Little Bit Stronger" Sara Evans. Lovely voice, powerful. Great. For anyone who has ever parted ways with a loved one (the whole human species).
Track 4: "Chances Are". Garrett Hedlund. Nice. What an amazing voice. An actor. Unforgettable (and really sexy) deep smoky vocals. Yum.
Track 5: "Liars Lie". Lee Ann Womack. very catchy, adorable lyrics, from the wonderful Lee Ann Womack. Strong track. Stays with you.
Track 6: "She's Actin' Single....", Ronnie Dunn. I'd never heard of him. Funny, memorable lyrics, great hooks, catchy song.
Track 7: "Shake That Thing" - Gwyneth Paltrow. My ONLY critique of this set. She has an amazing voice, this song does not properly showcase her vocal talents in their studio production and arrangements. Almost spoken, better suited to a less vocally strong singer, not her style. Sorry. Kinda trashy song. I know the lyrics must tie in to the story - but with all the talented people behind this, a better song could have been chosen. Song written for a vocally weak singer. It's almost a spoken timbre, IMHO way beneath Gwyneth's talent. Note to producers: YES GP can carry a tune by herself and does not need to be drowned out by studio sonics. (Also a little on Coming Home but thats a a great song)
Track 8: "Thirsty". Hank williams, Jr. A song about getting, um, our thirst quenched. Not my cuppa tea but in it's endearing way, what country music is all about.
Track 9: "Give in to Me" - Faith Hill. Sultry, bluesy, sexy, moody song, sung to perfection by FH. One of the 3 strongest songs, stands on it's own apart from this soundtrack. As an amateur but well-versed music fan, this seems almost to have been produced separately from the rest. It kind of stands out as not part of the rest of the album. All great this just stands apart.
Track 10: "Timing is Everything" - Trace Atkins. Cute song. Nice strong voice this guy has. Masterful, great lyrics sung by this beautiful voice. Sad song kind of, poignant lyrics.
Track 11: "Words I Couldn't Say" - Leighton Meester - Suprisigly clear voice. Nice. Standard Pop-Country girl song, sort of Taylor Swiftish, - no, I've amended that to Miley-ish; Taylor is a ct above. But nicely done song. Surprisingly catchy and listenable.
Track 12: "Coming Home". Gwyneth Paltrow. Slower, mid-tempo half-ballad (or should be, as written). Great Song. Beautiful, soaring, almost symphonic arrangement and vocals. Teensy bit too loud on the studio volume, GP gets drowned out at points, but it's such a great song anyway - you get past that and will hum this tune all day long, (especially the anthemic chorus), as I am right now. Just a beautiful song, about that one place in all of us - HOME.
Track 13: "Me and Tennessee" Tim Mcgraw and Gwyneth Paltrow, (and Chris Martin?) So they say Chris is in here somewhere. I can't hear him. That's OK. (although would've been neat) GREAT SONG. WILL STAY AROUND FOREVER. LOVELY. BEAUTIFUL BUT FUN duet sung by GP and TMcG both in unison (perfect harmony) and alternating verse. SUBLIME as far as the singing and the song itself, an up-tempo done-each-other-wrong-but-in-a-happy-song way. Very catchy. Humming it all night tonite on train - getting stared at on subway A KEEPER. The strongest - should be a single - I think even better than the title track I've loved this past month - those 2 and the Faith Hill and really all of them make this one a classic.
Fitting that the CD is bookended by the 2 of the strongest songs.
The take home message: For any type of country fan, for any Tim McGraw, Faith, Gwyneth, it's a MUST-BUY. All around it's very entertaining. It's just a super, super great soundtrack. It is worth buying, and any music or country music listener would be missing out by not doing so. It's really solid, my only gripe is that I love Gwyneth's singing voice so much, and she does not choose to record a whole lot of music, so ...maybe I wanted to hear a little less studio in the middle GP songs and just hear the singing and the words .....but that may be just me... Gwyneth, you have a masterpiece ahead of you with your singing, that was shown in DUETS and INFAMOUS. Please in future give us another opportunity to hear you sing.
ps: perspective: I'm a woman in her 30's, a life-long New Yorker, classic rock, pop, alt-rock (Coldplay!) and classical music (my hubby) are strong influences.
