Product Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Amazon.com

Reba specializes in encouraging ordinary women to face their trials with courage, perseverance, and hope. Consisting mostly of 1990s hits, Volume III deviates from this mission just twice: "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia," which is either a slice of Southern gothic or pure kitsch, take your pick; and "She Thinks His Name Is John," a morality tale that mistakes pity for empathy. More typically, Reba shouts, "You go girl!" "Fallin' Out of Love," for example, is about a woman who tells her cheating ex to take a hike when he comes crawling back. "I'm a Survivor" (her sitcom theme and one of the disc's three new recordings) somehow finds common cause between the struggles of a single mom and a preemie. If only there were some real-life scale to it all. Instead, Reba the Diva transforms each song into a grandiose anthem, where even the quietest beginnings end with her revving up for one more key change. --David Cantwell

The last decade or so has seen Reba McEntire emerge as a multi-media conglomerate, with music success leading to work in films, television dramas, and recently, an acclaimed performance on Broadway in Annie Get Your Gun. Currently at work on her own sitcom, this hits collection is a logical "breather" for the busy country queen.
Twelve of Reba's best from the '90s are included here. The uptempo tunes offer the most diversity, among them a reworking of the kitschy gothic classic "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia," and the jazzy, sassy "Take It Back." Ballads, however, remain Reba's forte. Routine weepers such as "And Still" and "Forever Love" blossom, thanks to her expressive vocals. When paired with a great ballad - like the AIDS saga "She Thinks His Name Was Name" and the soaring Brooks & Dunn duet "If You See Him/If You See Her" - the end result is glorious.
This set also offers three new recordings. Best of the crop is a remake of the Kenny Rogers hit "Sweet Music Man," featuring gently lilting production by Allison Krauss. "I'm A Survivor" - the theme to Reba's new sitcom - also works, while the sluggish, monotonous "Myself Without You" misses the mark.
Even after a third volume of hits, many of Reba's recent singles remain unanthologized, including the joyous "I'd Rather Ride Around With You," the pretty "Till You Love Me," and everything on her album of covers Starting Over. Undoubtedly, some of these will make it onto a fourth Greatest Hits and/or the inevitable box set, along with - certainly - future hits. Like the title says, Reba is a survivor.

Reba's third MCA greatest hits is actually her fourth total. She has one from her Mercury years, and now three with MCA. That's FOUR greatest hits albums with NO overlapping songs! Quite an accomplishment! This album picks up where GH2 left off beginning with selections from 1992's album "It's Your Call". However, there are two songs, "Fallin' Out of Love" and "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia", that are from 1990 and 1991 respectively. My guess is that there was not room on GH2 for these as most albums from the 80s and early 90s contained only 10 songs. GH3 contains 15 songs overall with three new Reba songs. "I'm a Survivor" is great and since hearing it I've learned it's slightly different than the version she sings as her theme song to her sitcom, both musically and lyrically. My three favorite songs are "I'm a Survivor", "Sweet Music Man", and "Fallin' Out of Love". Prior to this I'd never heard "Fallin' Out of Love" so it's a new song to me. It's fun to hear all these greatest hits together for the first time. However good they are, you can't help but feel a bit slighted. GH1 and GH2 each covered about 5 years musically and GH3 covers nearly 10. My wish would be to have this album as a GH3 and a GH4. Also, there is only one selection from the "What If It's You" album. No "How Was I to Know" or "What If It's You" or even "I'd Rather Ride Around With You" one of my personal favorites. However, don't let this stop you! Buy this album. It is history! Reba is still at the top of her game at 46 and it's clear she has no plans of coming down any time soon!

I'M A SURVIVOR, Reba's third Greatest Hits album, contains 12 of her hits and three great new songs. With all the hits she's had in the 90's, its no wonder they all didn't make the cut. I guess they will make it next time. Nevertheless, the big ones are here such as the Brooks & Dunn duet "If You See Him/If You See Her", the sassy "Take It Back", the beautiful "Forever Love" and many more. The hits from SO GOOD TOGETHER, as well as the ones that didn't make this cut, will most likely be on her next Greatest Hits album. "Im A Survivor" is a nice uplifting, positive song, also the theme for her new sitcom REBA. "Myself Without You" is another nice, lush ballad that Reba shines on. The final new song "Sweet Music Man", produced by Alison Krauss, is my favorite of the new songs, showing a bit of Reba's bluegrass side, hopefully she will do more of that music. Sadly no songs from STARTING OVER made the cut for this one, but it seems even Reba wants to forget about that album sadly, as I believe its one of her best. Overall if you are missing some of her 90's albums, this is a good place to start to get yourself aquainted (or reaquainted) with her hits from the 90's. Absolutely essential.

Reba McEntire, without a doubt, is one of the most influential country artists ever. There was never a doubt that she would release a third greatest hits eventually. And what a greatest hits collection it is!
The album's first song, and first single is "I'm A Survivor." It's a semi-uptempo song, with a good message. "Forever Love," the next song, is Reba's 2nd signature song, with "Fancy" being the first. "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" is one of the songs on this CD that I would've cut and possibly put another song on. It's a good song, but Reba's had better in the past decade. "And Still" is a wonderful song that captures Reba's voice like no other song on this cd. "If You See Him, If You See Her," I believe was a number one, but I'm not sure. THe next two songs should have probably been left off or replaced. "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" and "Fallin' Out Of Love" are good songs, but again probably should have been left off or replaced. If you look back at Reba's other two greatest hits, she never goes back to songs that were on an album with songs that were on a previous greatest hits. "The Heart Won't Lie," if feel, is the weakest song on the whole cd. I never cared for this song. "Take It Back" is one of the rare up-beat Reba songs that actually got air play. "She Thinks His Name Was John" is a Reba classic for only one reason: she had the guts to do it. No other country performer had done a song such as this one before. Though it as it's weak points, you still got to give credit to Reba and the song. "The Fear Of Being Alone" is the only song from her 1996 album, which is one of her best ever.
