Oh who am I kidding? I'm just reviewing this so I could post that person's iTunes review that says "Seizes to amaze!!!!!" My review is pretty much pointless after that blast of awesomeness! I'll give it a go anyway.
My first impression: It's possibly the furthest thing from country ever played on country radio. This is a pop song - that is a matter of fact and there is no room for debate. I guess it's a somewhat catchy pop song, though the Shania-esque "oohhh whoa's" are hellafied annoying. The only thing country about this is the title. Oh sure, it'll be a #1 smash and is probably a great lead single for her forthcoming album, but it won't reverberate across time with its artistic excellence(or even above average-ness). It won't even reverberate across my ear drums again if I can help it.
Musically this recalls Kelly Clarkson, Shania and Joan Jett. Vocally it recalls her own "American Girl" with its overreaching screams. Lyrically, it recalls every song ever written about a guy who isn't all he appears. The words bring absolutely nothing new to the table - there's nary a clever turn of phrase to be heard. I'd go as far as to say they're some of the least interesting lyrics I have ever heard in a commercial country song - wow, there's even a big name songwriter attached to this.
Overall, the tune brings the term "country" as it relates to the mainstream portion of the genre, a great deal closer to irrelevancy. I'm going to listen to some BettySoo now.
Total value: .22/.99
