"If I'm Honest" is Blake's best album since 2008's "Startin' Fires."
This album also marks Shelton's first since his very public divorce from country star Miranda Lambert...and there are some personal songs on this record, too. Emotionally driven songs like "She's Got A Way With Words" "Came Here To Forget" and "When I Think About You" are among the most personal songs on the record....and they do not disappoint.
Not only does Blake go back to his roots with a majority of the songs on this album, but the duet with his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, is surprisingly good as well.
Speaking of "Startin' Fires" die hard fans of Blake like me would take notice that he has remade the song "Green" from that album. In my opinion, I actually enjoyed the newer version of this song over the older one.
Moreover, Blake has always successfully had a way of combining tongue-in-cheek humor with his songs, and it has worked out pretty well for him almost every time. This is something that I have always loved about him as an artist.
In summary, whether you are a big fan of Blake or not, I'd give this album two strong thumbs up! Check this one out....as I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed!
