5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Modern Country 15 Jan 2010
Format:MP3 Download
This 2000 release was Womack's 3rd and it's by far the best thing she's ever done.In my opinion most of the best country music of the last 20 years has been produced by female artists and this more than holds it's own with any you'd care to mention.It''s a collection of outstanding songs and Lee Ann's voice has a most appealing mix of sweetness and fragility that never slips into coyness or cuteness.

The album opens with the Ronnie Bowman-penned "Healing Kind" where Womack's own harmony added to Ricky Skaggs almost outshines the original version. "I Hope You Dance" has a wonderful lyric and was a huge hit.Her version of Rodney Crowell's "Ashes by Now" is probably the best cover of a Crowell song I've come across and that's saying something! 2 more of my favourite country songwriters, Bobby Cryner and Dean Dillon, also contribute exquisite songs.Womack herself has only one song-writing credit - but with a tasteful selection of class songs like this who's complaining? The albums closes with the the old Don Williams number "Lord I hope this day is good" and here Womack utilises 2 of the best voices in bluegrass - Ronnie Bowman and Dan Tyminski (both former band mates in the Lonesome River Band) on superb harmony vocals.

The musicians on this recording are in the main the Nashwille A-List of the time, but as much of the material is acoustically-driven this recording is not as generic sounding as most Nashville "product" and should have a very broad base of appeal.I can't recommend it highly enough.The enhanced CD includes a most informative bio of Womack and has a number of other useful features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant from start to finish 28 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great CD. Lee Ann has excelled herself, sometimes sounding like Dolly Parton, sometimes like Alison Krauss, but more usually like herself. There is a really good mixture of songs on this album ranging from the title track which has both superb melody and outstanding lyrics to the simple but extremely catchy 'Why they call it Fallin?' A first class album which I can recommend without hesitation

This a stunning album no filler tracks . Lee Ann can go on and become a major star. This should appeal to stone and new country fans alike.The production is slick butsympathetic to Lee Anns traditional country vocals a throw back to Dolly but moving the music forward

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive stuff! 25 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album not long after it came out, after repeatedly hearing the title track on the radio. It was so good that within two weeks I'd also bought her first two albums as well! While possibly not as good as her previous album "Some Things I Know" (there's no real equivalent to the wonderful song "I'd Rather Have What We Had" to be found here), nevertheless this is an album to appeal to everyone. Lee Ann's previous two albums were really for dedicated country fans, this album is for everyone. The title track is a musical masterpiece, in spite of being cheapened by the appalling remix that gets played on the radio (which thankfully is nowhere to be found here, only the original in all its glory). If you don't have this - why not? And if you do - go buy Lee Ann's first two albums if you don't already own them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening country 14 July 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When Lee Ann released her debut album, she was acclaimed as the new standard bearer for traditional country music. Her second album reinforced that status but this third album finds Lee Ann moving towards an easy-listening style although this is still essentially a country album. Following this album, Lee Ann made a significant step away from country with her next two albums (one of which was a Christmas album) but then returned to her roots with a much more traditional country album. Thus, Lee Ann has tried various styles but her wonderful voice always sounds great.
The big hit here is, of course, I hope you dance, which crossed over to the American pop charts and even became a minor UK hit - no mean achievement in an era when country singles rarely become big pop hits. Apart from I hope you dance, there are many other great songs here including I feel like I'm forgetting something (a great up-tempo song to get those toes tapping), Lonely too (an excellent ballad written by Bruce Robison, a brilliant singer-songwriter), Lord I hope this day is good (a cover of a Don Williams classic), Does my ring burn your finger (written by Buddy and Judy Miller, an under-rated folk-country duo), Ashes by now (a cover of Rodney Rowell song) and Why they call it falling (a brilliant ballad).
This high-quality album should still please most traditional country fans, if not quite as much as Lee Ann's first two albums, while also pleasing fans of contemporary country.
