Love Lady A and this CD is awesome! Makes me remember some of their older songs that you don't hear on the radio as much anymore.
~Hello World: meet Lady A~

"It's amazing how fast Lady Antebellum has taken over the world of country music, and 2009 was certainly an unbelievable year for them. 'Need You Now' is a rock solid sophomore album, which is sure to send them not only higher up among the country superstars -- but propel them into the pop music world as well.
Their platinum debut album zipped up the country charts, and Lady A ended up bringing home awards for song of the year ("I Run To You") and group of the year, at the '09 CMA awards. Their great songwriting continues onto 'Need You Now', in which they've had a hand in writing 8 out of the 11 songs here. The title track spent 5 weeks at #1 on country radio -- and is now making its way onto the pop airwaves. This CD is full of beautiful harmony, brilliant lyrics, and lovely piano laden songs.
"Hello World" is definitely the standout song to me....It's just stunning. The song starts off softly with acoustic piano for a while, and then rises into a beautiful anthem about the simple things in life -- what life is all about. Great lyrics, production, and vocals..."Hello World" almost has a 'Coldplay' feel to it towards the end. "Perfect Day" and "American Honey" are nice summer type songs, in which Hilary sings lead vocals. Both singles are laid back tunes, which sound similar to classic Dixie Chick hits from long ago. "If I Knew Then" is a gorgeous ballad about missing an opportunity at love, by not taking a chance...something that many of us can relate to.
It seems very apparent that Lady A will continue on their road to becoming one of the most successful acts in pop-country music -- this CD is filled with some huge hit singles. It's a very strong album top-to-bottom, and I highly recommend it! ~9/10~ "
It's not as good as the debut CD

"I loved Lady A's debut CD and was really looking forward to the new release after hearing Need You Know on the radio. As far as I am concerned that is the only good song on the CD. I have listened to it several times thinking it will click with me but that just hasn't happened yet.
*I have been listening to it a lot lately and I am starting to like some of the songs. There are still a couple that I skip over but I increased my rating to three stars. I still like the first CD better."
Good, but not as good as their first album

"I was introduced to Lady Antebellum by my sister, who is not a country music fan at all, but likes this group. I love every song on their first album, and was looking forward to the release of "Need You Now." I bought this album from Amazon MP3 for $4 the day it was released. Even though I was not impressed after hearing the samples, I thought it would not be too big a waste of money if I didn't like it. This album is not as good as Lady Antebellum's first album, but it has some good songs. I was not impressed at first, but it is starting to grow on me. Give it a few weeks, and I might rate it even higher. My favorites are Our Kind of Love, Perfect Day, When You Got a Good Thing, and Something Bout a Woman."
