Title - ‘Wrapped Up Good' (Fontana Australia)
Artist - The McClymonts

For those not in the know, The McClymonts are 3 sisters from the small town of Grafton, NSW, Australia. Over the last five years The McClymonts have conquered the Australian market with 2 Gold Albums, 7 #1 hits, Awarded Best Group of the Year 4 years in a row at The Australian Country Music Awards, they took home the 2010 ARIA for Best Country Album for Wrapped Up Good, and are one of the most successful live touring acts in Australia with sell out shows nationally!

Phew, and if all that wasn't impressive enough, in 2010 The McClymonts were Jason Aldean's special guests on his USA Fall Tour. Having relocated to the U.S., making Nashville (where else?!) their new home, the aforementioned album Wrapped Up Good has just been released over here too.

The CD kicks off with, well, 'Kick It Up,' a fast-paced track that gets us off and running in grand country style. My favorite line is, 'Let's kick it up a notch, pass me the scotch' - especially as it's sung by some pretty young gals! Then comes 'Wrapped Up Good,' another steady beat song, it shows us the girls in not such a rush to get through the song.

Up next is the slow(er) revenge song, 'He Used To Love Me,' a storytelling adventure that you knew wasn't going to be too far off, before 'Boy Who Cried Love.' The longest track on the album, the near five minute long 'Take It Back' is a beautiful musical wave to allow yourself to float away on. Then comes 'Rock The Boat,' but not the infamous Hues Corporation song from 1974, so don't worry - although, that would have been interesting to hear!

The album fillers, for my money come along next with both 'I'm Not Done With You Just Yet' and the slow 'A Woman Is A Flame,' before we get back on track with the vibrant 'Hearts On Fire' and the fun 'If You're Gonna Love Me.' The album closes with both the revealing 'I Could Be A Cowboy,' and the full-on, speed-racer of a country track, 'Cannonball.'
