iTunes Editors’ Notes

If one didn’t know the year of Keith Urban’s birth, there’s no way one would peg Defying Gravity as the work of a 42-year-old. Urban seems to have more in common with new faces like Taylor Swift than he does with country’s old guard. As with Swift’s hit singles, Urban's tracks “Kiss a Girl,” “I’m In," and “Hit the Ground Runnin’” are rock songs without any of rock music’s attendant dead weight. Urban knows how to stay light on his feet without becoming totally translucent, and unlike many of his peers, he knows how to write fleet-footed pop songs that don’t denigrate the spirit of country music. Even when he takes a break from driving pop songs to deliver something slower, the effect isn't that of a stale country ballad. “Why’s It Feel So Long” is a great example of Urban’s ability to make songs that are neither ballads nor anthems. His new forms feel fresh, rather than just twists on the old Nashville styles. Though Urban may abandon country's musical clichés, “Thank You” (which is addressed to his wife, actress Nicole Kidman), extends a long tradition of openly confessional country ballads.
