Hard to believe that someone married to Nicole Kidman would have reason to have a dark side, but judging by the lyrical content of this album Mr. Urban definitely has a dark side. What I discovered with this album is that Urban is quite a good guitar player. His many solos of the electric or acoustic variety all demonstrate his mastery of the instrument. The album is a mix of rock and pop music heavily mixed with country sensibilities. Much of his music is blatantly for radio or radio play. Which is not necessarily a bad thing; it just shows what the artist is interested in. His clear voice is able to convey the emotions of a song without him sounding too cheesy or forced.
