In the Mark McGuinn-penned "Unusually Unusual," lead singer Richie McDonald swoons over a girl who's "absolutely unpredictable." If only the same could be said of I'm Already There, which fulfills every expectation one could have of a Lonestar album. As usual, the band's ordinariness is delivered at a highly competent level, and the recordings here are all catchy all the time. The band rocks out in an agreeably familiar way, making equal use of country, pop, and AOR conventions, and McDonald can hit any note he wants if he's given a running start--as on the romanticized rationalizations of a power ballad called "I'm Already There," this album's bid for a hit of "Amazed" proportions. The disc's most surprising moment, "Without You," is also its most disappointing. After a mumbled, emotionally complex verse ("Hurt, cry, pray to die / That's all I've got left to do"), McDonald and his mates suddenly launch into an inexplicably bombastic chorus that sounds like its never even been introduced to its own depressive heart. --David Cantwell

I really liked this cd, however, these days country music reminds me of walking through ankle-deep mud, and is about as enjoyable, so I'm going to let this one go.
There are certain things you need to consider;

"If you were a fan of Lonestar because of their Lonely Grill album, then do not buy this CD. Lonely Grill was much more "country" than this one. Except for "I'm already there", this CD is not typical Lonestar. I must say, I was a little dissapointed at first, however the more I listened to this CD, the more it grew on me. It's an interesting new sound you cant dismiss, but I hope they come back to their original sound on the next CD. I would buy this CD if you're a big fan, however those who like their past songs better stick with the old CD, they wont find it here."
Another great CD for Lonestar

"Lonestar's new "I'm Already There" album is a great follow-up to "Lonely Grill." I love it!! "Not a Day Goes By" and "I'm Already There" are Lonestar's bids for another hit like "Amazed." "I'm Already There" is my favorite song of the album. It tells a great story, and Richie McDonald's voice is wonderful in it (as it is in every song.) The album also has plenty of good upbeat songs, such as "Out Go the Lights" and "Unusually Unusual." "Unusually Unusual" is a fun song, and I like its message, too. Overall, a great new CD from Lonestar!!"
