Keith Urbans newest album “Ripcord”
When was the last time you purchased music much less an actual CD?
I just bought this CD and not only is it fantastic, but I’d forgotten just how nice it is to pick what song you wanted to listen to. What a concept, right? I mean sure, you can buy the “premium” plan for any of the music apps these days. But buy the CD and pop it in, its a 1 time expense!
So i am out doing a little Christmas shopping and i end up in the electronics department. I remember I have someone on my list that wanted an actual CD so i started looking for that isle. Have you tried finding that isle recently? I was stunned that it wasn’t an “isle” but rather a 6′ section of bargain buys, now that, hurt me. I am a HUGE lover of all kinds of music and this hurt me because I thought I’d be able to really “look” for what i wanted. But instead, i spent 15 mins rummaging around. I did get lucky because a fella and his preteen daughter where next to me, so we shared what we were looking for and don’t cha know the young eyes found what I was looking for purely by accident. lol
Then in the spirit of Christmas i found “Ripcord” and had to buy it for myself. So I have been listening to it in the car, you know thats the best place to jam out, and i really really like the whole album. I really haven’t sung my heart out to any song in a long time. Oh sure, I’ve hummed or sang a little chorus here and there. When was the last time you sang at the top of your lungs like you were 5 singing the “I Love you, you love me” Barney song? lol
The first track “Gone Tomorrow” makes you want to learn the words, which i am trying to do, so you can belt them out while cranking up the volume! The banjo intro mixed with some Pop is a bit different but I tell you, it’s really grown on me. Not only is the message absolutely worth listening to, but it really puts you in the spirit of the message. I will say, I would LOVE to hear an acoustic version of this. ❤❤❤
On the way to work this morning, I listened (and Sang!) to the first track 6 times! The next 2 tracks “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16 & Wasted Time”, I rocked out to 2 times a piece. There is 13 songs on this albumn and NONE of them disappoint. I strongly urge you to check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
If you like to read books then you’ll know what i mean when i say, “You need a copy of this” so you can touch it and look at it anytime the mood strikes you. ❤❤❤
