This album, from 1996, is full of quality. The first four tracks on this album were all hits in the American country charts, these being How was I to know (about recovering from a broken relationship and feeling better than ever), The fear of being alone (about a couple spending time together to avoid being alone), What if it's you (in which a woman discovers that a man is unavailable and wonders if she'll find somebody else) and I'd rather ride around with you (about somebody who is supposed to be at her cousin's wedding but prefers to be riding around with her man). The other songs – all excellent - are It don't matter (about a relationship that appears to be in trouble despite – or because - the couple having everything they need), State of Grace (about a woman who packs in her regular job for a bit of adventure), Close to crazy, Just looking for him (two songs about women unable to get over losing a man), She's calling it love (about a woman who is infatuated with a man who takes advantage of her) and Never had a reason to (about a woman who didn't do what the others did – fall in love, get married and raise a family – but eventually finds love). Reba has recorded so many great albums in her career and this is one of them. It has more of a country feel to it than some her nineties albums though it still has a pop sheen to it. If you enjoy Reba's nineties music, you should buy this album.
This CD has to one of Reba's best yet, although not quite her typical style. A collection of up-tempo songs full of fun & a more modern style than we're used to, however, Reba being Reba she can pull it off. Probably the most well known track, 'Fear Of Being Alone' is a great song of love & single life. 'I'd Rather Ride Around With You' was a great favourite of CMT, played constantly. Young fans of Reba will fall in love with this CD, a modern/rock/pop version of Reba's usual soothing style, still in-keeping with country - a little more Shania style maybe??
