* CreatorBreakdown: Having just come out of rehab before ''Golden Road'', Urban shows a great deal of optimism on that album. ''Be Here'' and ''Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing'' continue with the optimsm, but also show the demons creeping back in on tracks like "Tonight I Wanna Cry". After another trip to rehab and his marriage to Creator/NicoleKidman, he has taken refuge mostly in uptempos about how happy he is to be in love.

** Conversely, his longest-lasting #1 hit at country is not "Somebody Like You" or "Making Memories of Us", but rather the far less-remembered "Better Life". This is because the latter benefited greatly from a very weak chart -- lots of bigger hits had cleared out behind it, and no immediate competition was behind it to dethrone it.

* ChartDisplacement: On the country charts, "Stupid Boy" and "Cop Car" remain among his most popular despite reaching only #3 and #8 respectively. On the Hot 100, his highest peak is "Kiss a Girl", a long-forgotten single whose high ranking was due entirely to a one-week sales spike after he performed it on a season finale of ''Series/AmericanIdol''; it got no crossover whatsoever and would have only peaked in the 50s otherwise.

* DorkAge: Downplayed; ''Defying Gravity'' and ''Get Closer'' were seen as slightly weaker than his previous albums due to an overabundance of SillyLoveSongs and the latter having only eight tracks.

** Bass parts are apparently becoming susceptible to this: he played his own bass line on "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" after seeing a bass guitar hanging on the studio wall, and initially chose to have the line replaced by a session bassist, but ultimately left his own bass playing in the final mix.
