The Bottom Line

These 21 songs (one is repeated in 2 different versions) offer up to fans what has made Shania the star she is: a person with an uncanny knack for melody and, along with husband/producer Mutt Lange, strong songwriting skills.

Guide Review - Shania Twain - Greatest Hits

In a notoriously fickle business, most artists get one shot at stardom and if that album doesn’t “stick” then the career is typically over before it even got started. Fortunately for Shania she didn’t get dropped by Mercury Records after her first CD failed to ignite audiences. Instead of staying the course and make a “typical” Nashville record, the label showed extreme good will by giving Shania and her new husband, noted producer Mutt Lange, full control over the recording of the album.

With that control came a dynamic pop meets country sound with multi-layered vocals fiddles and good natured lyrics. That sound has morphed Shania from young Canadian import to international starlet in a short time. All of her notable hits are on “Greatest Hits” with the best of them being “Forever and For Always,” “You’re Still The One,” “You Win My Love,” “Any Man Of Mine,” “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You),” “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” and “No One Needs To Know.” Also included on this CD, as is the case with almost all CDs, are two new songs: “Party For Two” and “I Ain’t No Quitter.” Billy Currington and Mark McGrath duet with Shania on different versions of “Party.”

If you have always liked her radio hits but never saw the need to buy one of Shania’s CDs, now would be the time to get one. It has all her essential songs along with a couple of fun new tracks to tide longtime fans over until Shania releases her next album.
