If you're the kind who likes a glass of country music with a twist of rock, this is the album for you. However, even if you're not initiated into "Country", the pervading beat and southern twang will eventually get you.
Shania Twain, after her widely acclaimed album hits "Shania Twain" (1993) and "The Woman In Me" (1995), once again delivers her husky crooning with absolute confidence, flair and fun. It's clear that today, she's one of those rare singers who churns out her own tunes and means what she sings. She's a woman - all with flash, dash, style and essentially a lethal combination!
This album of hers has become the best selling album ever by a female solo artist with certified U.S. sales of 17 million copies according to the Recording Industry Association of America's gold and platinum certifications for March.
Her music, as always, charms, invigorates and invariably gets your feet tapping. Moreover, this CD/cassette is accompanied by all the lyrics - so, you can have your own Karaoke party if you want to. Close those curtains, get rid of the pesky siblings and worrying mothers, shut the door, blast her music and put up your own performance!
Each song in this collection is snappy. My favourites are "Man! I Feel Like A Woman", "That Don't Impress Me Much", "Love Gets Me Everytime" and "Honey I'm Home". Each number is distinctly flavoured and some of them have a thin though strong undercurrent of feminism to boot! So, if you're a woman, you definitely need to get some of Shania Twain onto your music rack.This article was first published on 19 Apr 2000.
