Pop sister trio SheDaisy created a Music Row buzz, mostly negative, with its debut album, which nevertheless was certified double-platinum and generated hits for country radio. The act's second album, billed "deeper" than its predecessor, remains shallow stylistically, coming off like some kind of backwoods Spice Girls. The perky presentation of "Mine, All Mine" does a disservice to its self-pitying lyric, and "Turn Me On" cops licks from "Do the Hustle." Titles like "I'm Lit" and "Man Goin' Down," as prettily as the songs swirl and spin, conjure entirely different meanings than what lyricist Kristyn Osborn serves up. "Get Over Yourself" is just plain annoying, and such Thorazine ballads as "Rush" and "The First to Let You Go" remind us that one Diane Warren is plenty enough for country music. "I Wish I Were the Rain" quickly evaporates, and likewise "Repent" and "Everybody Wants You" work up a bit of righteous sweat before they bog down in production. Plenty of this stuff is well-written, the girls can sing, and no doubt there is a format home for this somewhere. But only in Bizarro World would this be considered country music.—RW
