Review Summary: There is a lot to be said about country superstar Keith Urban and the last 11 years of music he's put out

There is a lot to be said about country superstar Keith Urban, and the last 11 years of music he's put out. Ever since the first self titled album in 1999, he has been bringing something a little different to the country music scene....happiness.

Keith Urban has had a reputation of consistently putting out feel good happy songs, and has had nearly a dozen #1 hits on the radio. In his new album, 'Get Closer', Keith is taking a more simple path lyrically and instrumentally, which may or may not be welcomed by the fans. Having been a big Keith Urban fan for a few years, I was a little worried to see that this album only has 8 songs on it. (3 extra available on the deluxe version). I was also worried after the first song I heard titled "Georgia Woods", because it's feels like he is headed in a more traditional country direction.

"Put You in a Song" is the first radio single off the album, and it has a lot of energy....it feels fresh. There's a lot of excitement in Urban's voice. This song will be truly enjoyed by die-hard Keith fans. With such a great opener, one would think that the following songs will be fairly similar; this is not the case. There are a couple other upbeat tempo songs like "You Gonna Fly", and "Right on Back to You". But the album has a lot of acoustic guitar, and lots of sappy love lyrics. Although Keith did just get married, the lyrics do come off as a little cheesy in some of the songs like "Day after day you find a way to make this grown man cry.
It's so true, I'm all for you." These type of lyrics are displayed in certain areas of the album. But overall, the CD comes off as positive, and there aren't any sad songs on this release. You can tell that he is happy. And I think this will tide the fans over for a while till his next release.

I love that song on radio, "Put You in a song".
And also the slow number, "Without You".
