Say this for Lady Antebellum: They're good at being bland. The follow-up to the Nashville trio's huge 2008 debut features sturdy choruses and fine harmonies by singers Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley. But the lyrical twists that mark the best Nashville product are nowhere to be found, and the high drama that they try for — "Something about us just don't work/But I can't walk away" — isn't earned. An exception is the title track, a tale of romantic obsession in which Scott and Kelley pour harmonies over lustrous minor chords. Lady Antebellum have potential, but they're mostly dull — by design.
