Single Review: “Fine Line” by Little Big Town

July 3, 2008

Having switched to Capital Records the quartet of Little Big Town release their second single from their recent album A Place To Land. “Fine Line” is an impressive showing of the groups harmonic talents, with a performance reminiscent of the trademark style of the Eagles at times. However the song lacks the lyrical relevance to match.

“Fine Line” has Karen speaking through a woman who is being neglected by the man who supposedly loves her and puts her in the position of explaining the situation and the fine line between them as she contrasts her views of the situation with his. While the song holds and strong and enjoyable hook throughout its entirety, it lacks some climactic feel near the end that makes it almost repetitive and very redundant lyrically and vocally. So while this song is a decent reintroduction to help the band launch from their new label, it comes off as a little too much like a debut single in that it is a little held back where things should be stressed out a little more.
