Editorial Reviews

Faith debuted on this 1993 album filled with the fire and energy of country's rebirth on the popular scene. "Wild One" was her biggest hit off of it, but some of the album's softer songs proved she had the country chops destined for stardom.

Back in the day, before the Top 40 audience had ever heard of Faith Hill, those in the country circle knew of this talented lady. Faith's first album had enough twang to make her country and enough pop to make her attractive to the young crowd. Faith's voice shines on such songs as "Wild One" and "Piece of My Heart," but it's on the ballads like "Just Around the Eyes" where she make syou feel the pain and heartache.
This Faith album is pre-Shania. It's so good, that she should really be hit for going pop and mainstream. Shame on you faith. But, until she comes to her senses, I'll ignore her mainstream stuff and stick to the twangy Faith I like in 1993.

1993 marked the debut of Faith Hill - who is now a singing sensation, and has undeniable talent. I remember first tuning into CMT and I saw this beautiful woman singing "Piece Of My Heart" - this music video led me to discover Faith Hill and her amazing talents - I quickly rushed out of the house and bought the [Take Me Ask I Am] CD.
"Wild One" - Faith's first song released became an instant #1 hit, then followed by "Piece Of My Heart" which also hit #1, then followed by the title track "Take Me As I Am" which became a loved top ten hit. Faith makes a great debut, and I'm happy to have listened to her music for 10 years now.

Faith Hill's debut album is a strong collection of songs. Of course her music has changed a lot from this debut, but it's all good. She has yet to make an album I did not like. This one is definately her most traditional country album. The album had a few hit singles, including "Wild One", "Take Me As I Am" and "Piece of My Heart". "But I Will" is a great ballad, but it only reached #35. There's other nice ballads like "Just Aout Now", "Just Around The Eyes" and "I Would Be Stronger Than That", and some uptempos. Overall a nice debut.

This is one of those stereotypical newcomer albums where every song is given equal, strong effort. Before any affectations are expected or demanded, before the artist decides that they MUST represent themselves as a star, before their voice has gotten worn out. From then on, Hill did what many artists do- put two to four hits on an album, with the rest generally being (annoying & pitiful) filler. I know because I bought & listened to all of them, so no, I'm not waxing nostalgic or trying to be cruel. Before Faith Hill had any gnode problems, she was likely to be another Patsy Cline or other great singer of the genre. Unfortunately, the strong & pretty mezzo-soprano country voice heard here is no longer at all what it was, but at least we have this album to listen to.

The obvious first hits of the star are still here, including the much-maligned "Piece of My Heart". She's not Janis Joplin. Get over it, people. Hill sang the song her way, and it's a version that's quite easy to listen to, sung with energy & emotion. I would rather see someone take a good song & sing it well THEIR way, then try to be a weak copycat of a previous artist. No one bi*ched when Linda Ronstadt sang Buddy Holly or Motown songs her own way, just as one famous example. Of course, "Wild One" & "Take Me As I Am" are the other two that radio played & loved. While not necessarily her all-time best songs, the vocal quality, melodic air & strong instrumentation are enjoyable enough to listen to.

"Just About Now", "Just Around the Eyes" & "I Would Be Stronger Than That" are the three examples of great, slow-tempo pop-country songs which should have been hits. Had they been promoted better, and/or were released in the 1980's (when Contemporary Country was at it's best), they probably would have been.

Every song on this cd is wonderful! On every song she shows great vocal ability. You won't be sorry if you buy this cd. The 2 best songs are, "Wild One" and "Piece of My Heart". For die hard country fans:a MUST buy!

This Is One Of The Beautiful Voices In Country Music Today. Faith Hill Sings Great Songs On This Album Like: The Number 1's Wild One, And Piece Of My Heart. The Title Track Became A Top Ten Hit.

On TAKE ME AS I AM, the strawberry-maned, country-thrush exhibits a warm, satin voice, deceptively strong, with a slight, fragile quiver reminiscent of Dolly Parton. She has a liquid, vocal strength similar to that of her idol, Reba McEntire, but devoid of Reba's overwrought vocal gymnastics. From the defiant, teenage-rebel anthem "Wild One" to her brave, countrified remake of Janis Joplin's signature rocker "Piece Of My Heart," Hill stakes out the wide territorybetween traditional and contemporary country, most notably in the classic-sounding "But I Will." In this impeccably produced (by boyfriend Scott Hendricks) album, Faith doesn't shy away from important topics. In "I Would Be Stronger Than That," she tackles domestic violence. Unlike the aggressive tact of Martina McBride's "Independence Day," Faith takes a more reflective stance. With her striking looks, full-bodied vocals, and strong material, TAKE ME AS I AM, poises Faith Hill as the next queen of country music.
