Among the Idol classes, Carrie Underwood was refreshing — but now that she’s going up against country’s big girls with the release of Some Hearts, you mostly notice how even the best songs on this slick debut don’t stack up against the worst on Sara’s or Lee Ann’s latest. Except for one tune where she keys a cheating boyfriend’s car, it’s all self-seriously soulful life-lessons stuff (there’s even a song called ”Lessons Learned”) — music for young people who want to feel middle-aged. Next time, Carrie, have some fun, and play something country.
