The middle of the EP brings more country pop tracks, "Crybaby" and "Your Smile." "Crybaby" is a hit-in-the-making. The chorus is masterful, with the change from Gearing singing low and soft, "I ain't gonna cry baby / cause you said goodbye baby..." and then her belting out "But baby I ain't gonna cry." The change makes her belting sound even more impressive than it usually does. Placed right after "Train Track" in the tracklist, "Electric" is the slight oddball in this collection. This song is rockier than anything on the EP, almost pure country rock. It sounds a little more Kristen Kelly than Carrie Underwood, and is a definite change of pace. It still is a solid offering, but doesn't match up to the heights of "Train Track" and "Crybaby."
It has been a long road for Ashley Gearing. She's been working since she was eleven years old, and it has continued to pay off for her. She is now signed with Curb Records and this is her first EP release with them, hopefully to lead up to a full length album sometime in the future. Her talent has only gotten better since she was first introduced to country radio, and fans will be just as eager to get "Train Track" and other songs on this EP on the radio as they were 12 years ago with "Can You Hear Me When I Talk to You."
