Product Description

Lee Ann Womack's seventh album Call Me Crazy is her most impressive outing to date in a career full of great music. Lee Ann's youthful desire to sing was fulfilled and the lessons she learned from Tammy, George and other Country icons who captivated her as a child come through loud and clear on Call Me Crazy, Simply put, the collection of songs, the exquisite production and the sheer artistry of Lee Ann's straight-from-the-heart vocals, whether powerful, vulnerable, achingly sad or joyful, combine to make this one stunning album.

Amazon.com

Few singers express emotional depth with such vocal subtlety as Lee Ann Womack. On Call Me Crazy she brings a light touch to material that explores the dark recesses of musical maturity. Lesser artists, or bigger show-offs, might try to wring every ounce out of pathos from the empty marriage referenced in "Either Way," yet Womack's beyond-caring diffidence strikes the perfect emotional chord. In similar fashion, her bittersweet evocation of "Solitary Thinkin'" ("and lonesome drinkin'") is barroom blues from a woman who still has plenty of self-respect. She makes even the power-ballad cliches of the comparatively upbeat "I Found It in You" sound sincere, while the genial duet with George Strait on "Everything But Quits" forges a connection that never seems forced. "If These Walls Could Talk," co-written by Womack, practically begs for George and Tammy comparisons, and her hard-twanging cover of Jim Lauderdale's "The King of Broken Hearts" reinforces her honky-tonk side. So does "I Think I Know," a moving elegy for Keith Whitley, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and anyone who has ever died from an emptiness that cannot be filled. The production by Tony Brown balances neo-trad with radio friendly, as Womack never sings a false note. --Don McLeese

Customer Reviews

Beautiful voice and great lyrics.
E. King
I love Lee Ann Womack when she sings traditional country music - a type of music that seems to have been forgotten by her female contemporaries.
J. Moreau
I have Lee Ann Womack's previous album "There's more where that came from", and was wondering if she could live up to it.

Disclosure. If you live in New Jersey and listen to country music chances are the windows remain rolled up tightly while you're driving. In the case of Lee Ann Womack this geographic bias does a grave disservice to a tremendous talent (It also doesn't help that the New York radio market hasn't fielded a country station for decades.)

Admittedly, I know very little about country as a genre and even less about Ms. Womack in particular, so stumbling across a few cuts on XM from her latest release, Call Me Crazy left me wondering just who the woman is behind the pipes. After buying the disc (and rolling up the windows) what I quickly discovered is a remarkable voice that in one minute can whisper a room full of pathos and in the next can literally shred your speakers. When you set your prejudices aside, it is clear that in the case of Lee Ann Womack talent is her genetic trump card.

That said, this is clearly not a feel good record, finding Womack in constant turmoil about one disastrous relationship or another - with Last Call, Either Way and If These Walls Could Talk (among others) hard-wired into 911. In fact, these are just the type of toxic reflections that run-of-the-mill bad relationships must talk about when they want to feel better about themselves. Some of us call lawyers while others drown their conflicts in a bar. Both have their virtues.

All that aside, what allows this release to transcend the material's Soap Opry inclinations is Womack's seemingly limitless vocal range. Each song goes to a real place that is unfailingly powerful, honest and tough-minded. Country or not - there's always room for that - even in New Jersey.

Highly recommended!

Three years is a long time to wait for new music from any vocalist. Many careers are made and quickly fade in that span of time. Sometimes too, the anticipation for something new doesn't always live up to one's expectations. Lee Ann Womack's Call Me Crazy manages to meet and exceed any and all expectations ten-fold. This could well be the finest album of her decade-and-a-half long career.

Indeed from the opening bars of her current hit single, Last Call, it's apparent that three years to recharge and refocus did Ms. Womack a world of good. Her voice is exquisitely lush and pure, proving that like fine wine, some things... even those that need no improving... DO improve with time. She's truly never sounded better, or more inspired than she does on this album. Her phrasing is impeccable. Her rhythm panache shows a skill and playfulness. Without a doubt, this is a fun album to listen to! Never over-powering, or over-bearing. Not in your face, but subtle. It's as easy on the ears as Lee Ann is on the eyes. And in addition to never sounding better, she's never looked better; sporting a newly svelte figure that I'm sure would be the envy of women half her age. Compile a list of country music's most beautiful women, and Lee Ann Womack is a must-include near the top. In a bold move, the front cover pose teasingly reveals just her gorgeous gams... and nothing else! The back cover pose more than makes up for the omission of seeing her pretty face under the album title. It showcases what a true beauty this country songbird really is!

The songs are all first rate, including four of the twelve (New Again, Have You Seen That Girl, If These Walls Could Talk, and Everything But Quits), which were co-written by Womack herself, showcasing yet another of her many talents.

This album came in the mail yesterday and I've listened to it a dozen times already. "Call Me Crazy" is an oasis in what is pretty much the desert of true country music today. But then as a vocalist, Lee Ann is like a diamond amongst so much cut glass. If MCA had the guts it could release half the album's tacks as singles, and if country radio weren't ashamed of, or afraid of, playing country music, this collection would yield an equal number of top ten hits. Tony Bowen has yet to produce a bad record, and there is not a throwaway track on the album. Two stellar selections are "New Again," and "Everything But Quits," a duet with George Strait. Lee Ann and George sound so good and natural together, don't you know they would have been as hot as George Jones and Tammy Wynette back in the day. "New Again," co-written by Lee Ann, offers a fresh take on a country music staple: finding true love the second time around. But the song goes deeper, reflecting on the gift of life's second chances. In the same vein as her signature song, "I Hope You Dance," "New Again" ends much too quickly--like all good things in life-- leaving the listener craving one more verse and another refrain from Lee Ann's sweet voice.

Lee Ann Womack's newly released CD "Call Me Crazy", has been well worth the wait. Her first song, "Last Call" which is out now as her first single, is only the beginning of what should be multiple chart toppers. The second song "Either Way", also should be released as a single, as I'm sure many listeners can relate. This CD is worth the cost for Lee Ann's fans and new comers alike.

On Call Me Crazy, Lee Ann's singing the material she does best; the songs are sometimes mournful, sometimes angry, always wringing with emotional depth and subtlety. To call this release old-fashioned is an understatement, yet it never feels dated. She covers topics like battered wives, broken marriages, and "cryin' in your beer" songs. The title track is now one of my all-time favorites by Lee Ann; its hauntingly beautiful and starkly realistic. The duet with George Strait, "Everything but Quits," is a Texas swing version of George and Tammy. This CD even features a fairly up-tempo, happy song, "I Found It in You."
The wait for this album was too long owing to the question of what direction LAW would take next with veteran hitmaker Tony Brown producing her for the first time. She's got a fine line to walk; her best material isn't radio-friendly and isn't likely to sell big. However, artistically this material is wonderful for her voice, and nobody can perform it the way she can. She tears the heart out of every note. Its refreshing for a lover of traditional country to hear these songs. I don't want her to change a thing. As far as accessibility goes, she'll never sell out. She's consistently declared it and even joked about it: "I hope this record works out for us," she said. "If it doesn't, I've got a plan. I'm gonna go pop...They might as well take one of ours, I guess."

I agree with you Geoff! Lee Ann is about the ONLY thing we have left in Country music, that IS country music. I pray that this new cd is as just half as wonderful as "There's More Where That Came From." Lee Ann really can't sing a bad song. I was also disappointed that "Finding... Read More
