Product Description

Cry is Faith Hill's first album since 1999's seven-times-platinum, three-time Grammy winner Breathe, which debuted at #1 and became her fourth straight multiplatinum album. For fans of one of the biggest stars in country and pop, Cry will bring tears of joy.

Amazon.com

Faith Hill finally owns up to what we knew all along. She may be from deep-dish Mississippi, but she isn't a country singer, and never has been. This babe's a diva now. And, as she says in her best Diana Ross voice on "Free," "There ain't nothin' I can do about it." But what she could exercise some control over, as the coproducer of her fifth studio album, is the quality and style of her particular brand of über-pop, which on Cry considerably ratchets up the noise factor from 1999's Breathe. The songs, many written by tunesmiths long working in Nashville, often come stocked with meaningful messages, i.e. the emptiness of addiction ("If You're Gonna Fly") or the momentary connection with a loved one who has passed on ("You're Still Here"). Yet Hill and company (longtime producers Byron Gallimore and Dann Huff, in conjunction with Marti Frederiksen) obviously think the best way to make an R&B/pop record is to build a huge, airless production around screeching guitars, wall-rattling drums, and Big Mama choirs. The singer herself may be, indeed, turning out her best vocals ever. But the album itself is a self-conscious mess--a big, wallowing cacophony of sound that leaves the listener numb. In the end, it's a miserable failure. This chanteuse's R&B just ain't got no soul. --Alanna Nash

I don't usually do this. I'm a 50ish white guy up in Vermont with a 5,500 piece record collection not prone to reviewing anything. I like what I like. But, every now and then an artist (and if it was ever in doubt before, it is not now. Faith Hill is an artist - not just a singer)puts out work that cannot be ignored and that you just know you will contiue to play regularly because it gets inside you and changes how you deal with your day or your night or your own self, for that matter. This was a gutsy album to make. Faith Hill's success is not just that of a country singer. Nor of a cross over singer. With each of her albums she has moved in a progression toward...something. It is not easy any more to put her in a nice little niche. This album takes risks musically and lyrically. While she did not write any of the songs, she sings as if she owns each one - passionately. She makes each one her own and you can hear that in the way she takes a familiar word or phrase and stamps (or breathes) her own phrasing into them -making each song (and she) unique. The lyrics are sometimes beautiful (Cry, If This is the End, Beautiful, You're Still Here, Baby You Belong), sometimes wrenching (When the Lights Go Down, This Is Me), brutally honest(Back to You, Stronger,You're Still Here). Sure song writing teams may have put these songs together, but they do NOT feel that way...and they are cetainly not sung or played that way. Musically...some great musicians do some wonderful things on this album. (Headphones help realize the extent of this.) This does not come off as an album dominated by a bunch of talented studio musicians. No, on this album they join Faith Hill in giving every song it's own breath. No two alike. No safe sameness.Read more ›

The first thing I want to say is sorry to Faith as I bashed this album in my review when the album came out. I was disappointed that this was not her typical music: Country. The fact is this album has grown on me. There are some really great songs on this. Probably my favorite is "Baby You Belong". But other good songs are "If You're Gonna Fly Away", "Unsavable", "Free", "I Think I Will". Faith sounds good but it is completely different than previous material including "Breathe".
Anyway, I think this album will produce many hits and I hope Faith has a long happy career ahead of her.

A lot of people - mostly critics and some country purists - will be upset that Faith Hill has abandoned her familiar country sound on "Cry." There's not a steel guitar or "fiddle" to be heard (although there are "violins" in the string sections). Faith completes the evolutionary process she dabbled in with "Faith" and spotlighted with "Breathe." The vocals on "Cry" are confident, and she has never sounded better. In fact, her vocal arrangements are true to what she sounds like in concert - soulful, edgy and gospel-tinged. Don't expect to find any fluffy subject matter ("This Kiss" or "The Way You Love Me"). This time around, the song selection emotes independence, tough relationships and even anger (the title track). She rocks on the free-spirited "Free," and "This Is Me." Fans of her recent power ballads will find familiar territory in "When The Lights Go Down," "Back To You," and "Beautiful" (a departure with it's spoken verses - her husky delivery pulls it off). Despite the predetermined label of "pop album," and the absence of a duet with husband Tim McGraw, country fans and programmers still have plenty to enjoy: "Baby You Belong" is a perfect, multi-format choice for the second single. She outdoes herself on the dazzling ballad "Stronger," and the quiet yearning of "You're Still Here" is appropriate in our post 9-11 climate. Faith even takes on dance/pop with "If You're Gonna Fly Away," but it's far from teen pop. The song sticks to the album's theme of tough love and a woman finding herself.Read more ›

Well, I'll admit it, I doubted Mrs. Tim McGraw could pull off an album that could appeal to both country and pop/rock fans.
I was wrong to doubt the power of Faith Hill...she did.
This album is extremely good! From the "don't-mess-with-me!" ("Free", "This Is Me") to the mourning ballads ("You're Still Here") it's pure gold. Honestly, I haven't stopped playing this CD since I bought it in October 2002.
Here's the lowdown on the tracks:
FREE - Catchy, good if you need a "pick me up" song. ("Life pulls fast changes/Wind blows past pages/All I see is I don't need this")
CRY - Perfect for getting over a hard break-up. ("Give it up baby/I hear you're doin' fine/Nothin's gonna save me/I see it in your eyes")
ONE - Decent. It's a good, "I'm over you" song, but it can get a little old. ("One is breaking into two/And my heart is turning blue/And you still don't get it do you?")
WHEN THE LIGHTS GO DOWN - Beautiful. A great song about not realizing how you feel until it's too late. ("When the lights go down/And there's nothin' left to be/When the lights go down/And the truth is all you see")
BEAUTIFUL - My least favorite. I personally don't like the spoken-word verses, but it's kinda cute. A Valentine's Day kind of song. ("I love how soft you touch my skin/Like you're touching the wings of a butterfly")
UNSAVEABLE - Another break up song. I think it's easy to relate to, c'mon who hasn't been stuck in a hopeless relationship. ("Baby I cried/A little too hard/A little too long/What I thought was right was way too wrong and too far gone")
BABY YOU BELONG - A cute little love song. Sadly, it is almost Hallmark-y. I have mixed feelings for this one.
