"Released in true country genre style (too early on the back of a stellar album), 'Somewhere in the Stars' was set-up to fail.
It's not a bad disk and copied, in formula, a lot from its predecessor, 'Seven Year Ache'. It boasts of the same producer, musicians and back-up vocalists. Everything in place to make it a hit - and yet it really wasn't.
Without a doubt, it is Cash's weakest disk, but again, it is not bad. Some of the material is some of the best she's done. The first four tracks alone are worth the purchase - if you still can get the disk.
But it is after that when it kind of falls apart. There are moments on the second half shows promise ("It Hasn't Happened Yet") and a duet with her dad "That's How I Got to Memphis" that is not only just mediocre, but credited as a duet with her husband, Rodney Crowell. Either the credit is wrong, or Crowell does a hell of Johnny Cash impression.
For a newer artist, this isn't a bad disk - but if you're used to better things from Cash, you can give it a listen, but she's not at the top of her game.
