There's no "depth" to the recording. She hasn't transcended beyond the original and quite honestly, everything, from the acoustic guitar, her vocals, the bass, the drums, etc. have been copied and pasted.
It may please her fans but it won't stand the test of time.
I dont think anyone can punch through the original Dolly version, that tune seems like one of those that can never really be outdone, the best someone can hope for is to do it justice.
As far as tricks she's geting away with that maybe go unnoticed by most, thats a fair point and most likely true... but dont you think she needs to go country? i reeeally dont see the hollywood scene overall buying into her brand of pop-rock and lack of true pretense.
In other words, she needs to quit trying to be avant-garde and just start being real and true to her roots.
