There are plenty of upbeat songs, giving this album a real good-time feel. Among them are What made you say that, Dance with the one that brought you, God ain't gonna getcha for that and Crime of the century. Shania also demonstrates that she can sing ballads well, particularly on When he leaves you, possibly my favorite track here, and You lay a whole lot of love on me.
It is clear from this album and from some tracks on her other albums that Shania loves country music but it is unlikely that Shania will ever record another album like this one. As such, country fans everywhere should treasure it (only the most diehard traditionalists could complain that it's not country enough), but some of Shania's normal fans may not like it all and ought to hear some of it before buying. This is my favorite Shania album although I do enjoy some of her later music in its own way.
1. `What made you say that?' A joyful song with a great melody that you can't get out of your head once you heard it. (10/10)
2. `You lay a whole lot of love on me' A sensitive ballad about love, but with a happy undertone, that brings out Shania's voice very good. (9/10)
3. `Still under the weather' A beautiful, sad ballad about losing your first love. (8/10)
4. `Dance with the one that brought you' Another happy song you won't get out of your head. (8/10)
5. `God ain't gonna getcha for that!' This song is the most like Shania's style from the songs on this album, and one of my favourites. It's like a country-version of `Man! I feel like a woman!'. The song invites you to get on the dance-floor! (10/10)
6. `Got a hold on me' This is one of my favorite songs from this album, because it's so desperate. As well the lyrics as the melody are great. (10/10)
7. There goes the neighbourhood' A sad song in which we are reprimanded for not doing enough to keep our romantic relationships intact, en thus breaking up the neighbourhood. (7/10)
8. `Forget me' A nice up-tempo song with a somewhat bitter undertone. (9/10)
9. `When he leaves you' This is a beautiful song, only the lyrics are somewhat... stupid, if you ask me. (7/10)

In my opinion the only artist in my album collection who comes close to Shanias effortlessly belting performance here is Patsy Cline, so if you like her you'll like this.
I know it wasn't overly successful at the time but as a retrospective I think Shania should be proud to have it in her back catalogue. It's a faultless debut and a very worthy addition to any Shania fans collection.
You may not think so at first but it WILL grow on you...

This was Shania Twain's first cd. It came out in 1993. And at the time it wasn't really anything special. It sounds more Nashville then her later stuff. Read morePublished on June 26, 2014 by john thomas
