  • The fifth album by Nashville star Blake Shelton, STARTIN' FIRES continues the singer-songwriter's winning mix of tongue-in-cheek wit (a previous album was called PURE B.S.) and heartfelt sentimentality. On STARTIN' FIRES, Shelton's sardonic humor is best heard on the album's closing track, a saucy duet with Shelton's girlfriend, country star Miranda Lambert, called "Bare Skin Rug," as well as similarly PG-13 material like "This is Gonna Take All Night" and "Country Strong." His more serious material includes the patriotic "Home Sweet Home," the wistful "I Don't Care," and a fine pair of lost-love ballads, "I'll Hold On" and "100 Miles."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.126) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "His fifth album leans toward slow, thoughtful stuff, like "Home Sweet Home,' in which Shelton flees the Nashville circus for the comforts of a bread-basket backwater."

Entertainment Weekly (p.119) - "[Shelton] definitely knows how to craft a sturdy country tune....These FIRES are fueled by mid-tempo beer-joint grooves..." -- Grade: B-

Billboard (p.77) - "[M]ostly Shelton is in L-O-V-E and overjoyed to sing about it. 'Country Strong' offers an anthemic salute to boot-wearin' men and women..."
