Bottom Line:

Those 4 guys from Texas known as Lonestar are back with their 9th studio album called 'Mountains'. And it's just more of the same. And this is a good thing! because it's more of the same great country music that you've come to know, love and expect from Lonestar. If it's their country power ballads that you love, then you will love their latest CD!

The 9th studio album from those 4 guys from Texas known as Lonestar is called Mountains. It arrives hot on the heels of their 2005 release called Coming Home, and it features 11 new songs. The CD starts off with their latest single which is also the title track of the disc. "Mountains" is a song about people who face the challenges of every day life and overcome the obstacles that may get in their way. With lyrics like "When you can't lean on no one else, that's when you find yourself," be they big or small, it's about overcoming the roadblocks in life. Over half of the 11 tracks on this CD are the country power ballads that you have come to know and love from Lonestar. An example of this is the song "Nothing To Prove." After a long, hard day on the job of trying to be everything to everyone, it's nice to come home to the man or woman in your life and know that you are loved and accepted just because you're you. The song "Long Lost Smile" is about a woman who breaks free from a bad relationship. While he's home sleeping off the alcohol, she's breaking free, burning rubber and leaving the past behind her.
We're all out there looking for that special someone who we think is the right one for us. Someone to share our lives, plans, hopes and dreams with. Well, when that special someone ends up with someone else, well, you have the song "Thought It Was You." Then you have the emotionally charged song "Hey God." From saying thank you for a healthy family, then admitting that not everything that happens in life makes sense, but there is a reason for it all. "Cowboy Girl" is a rowdy country rocker that would make Gretchen Wilson proud! With lyrics like "if you wanna catch her, man you better know how to ride," need we say anymore? And things get just a little steamy with the song "Careful Where You Kiss Me." It's about a guy who just can't resist his lady love's passions. And the CD concludes with the song "Always In The Band." It's about missing out on the special moments in life like the birth of a child, or postponing a honeymoon because you are following the dream that you chose. Being the performer in the band. From start to finish, Mountains is another stellar CD from Lonestar that's one fantastic song after another. It's produced by: Mark Bright and is on BNA Records.
