LeAnn Rimes - This Woman

The Bottom Line

At the Young age of 22 this is LeAnns twelfth album after debuting with Blue in 1996 and it's an amazing one at that. She now can sing about things that she has actually experienced rather than having to only imagine what it would be like. She now can bring meaning to a lyric like she has never done before. Don't get me wrong, I have always loved LeAnn's voice and music, but this album I believe is her best.

Guide Review - LeAnn Rimes - This Woman

There is a full range of emotions on this album, from "I Got It Bad" written by LeAnn and hubby Dean Sheremet (which was written for NASCAR because they got hooked on it a couple of years ago) to "When This Woman Loves A Man." You can tell on songs like these LeAnn is reaching deep down and using every bit of her beautiful voice to sing like she does. I believe that only comes from living life. Recording hits after hits it didn't surprise me in the least that "Nothin' Bout Love Makes Sense" during it's 1st week was the #1 most added song on country radio.

LeAnn says herself that every song on this album comes from her heart and soul. For instance when LeAnn recorded one of the songs on this album "Some People," they did it in only one take and she was crying when they cut it, along with others in the studio.

"You Take Me Home," LeAnn wrote about moving to L.A., finding herself, husband, and moving back to Nashville where she found the comfort in all the things she didn't think she needed or really wanted in life. But now at a very different point in her life, those things have become important to her and that song reflects that. "When This Woman Loves a Man" she wrote because she loves the music and soul of Janis Joplin. This past year she performed a version of Joplin's "Summertime" in her shows and realized she could do so many different things with her voice that she had not experienced before. Good for you LeAnn, you keep on amazing me with each new venture you take.
