Lee Ann Womack is a rarity in modern Nashville--an authentic honky-tonk debut album. Producer Mark Wright has refused to bury Womack's small-town, East Texas drawl under the Hollywood soft-rock cloaking that Music Row favors these days. As a result, the young singer's soprano projects an attitude too unsophisticated to hide any emotion. On the first single, "Never Again, Again," you can hear in quivering high notes the dilemma of a woman who keeps breaking her own promise to never take her ex-lover back. Not every song is that sharply focused, and the obligatory boot-scootin' dance numbers and string-smothered ballads dilute the album's impact. But you can hear Womack's potential when she assumes the persona of a hardened waitress explaining the facts of life to an ex-boyfriend in "Montgomery to Memphis." --Geoffrey Himes

"While pop was starting to take over Nashville back in 1997, Lee Ann Womack's self-titled debut ushered her onto the scene as the most traditional-sounding female vocalist the genre had seen since Patty Loveless debuted in the late '80s. In the middle of more pop-slanted vocalists like Reba and Martina, you had 'Never Again, Again' and everyone scratching their heads wondering "How the hell did that get on the radio, and more importantly, who's the singer?" Womack's debut beautifully straddled a fine line between modern('You've Got To Talk To Me') and traditional(the brilliant--and self-penned--'Am I The Only Thing You've Done Wrong'),and her Dolly Parton-meets-Alison Krauss soprano remains a thing of fragile purity even today. This set remains arguably the most significant debut by a female country artist of the last decade."
This CD is a must have for Traditional Country lovers!!!

"This is definetly one of Lee Ann's best Albums. NOT A BAD SONG ANYWHERE ON THIS CD!! If you like good Tradition country music you'll love this CD!! This CD also produced the top ten hits "The Fool" and "You've Got To Talk To Me". Other great songs on this album are "Buckaroo", "Trouble's Here", and "Never Again, Again", or at least those are my favorites!!
This CD is a must have for any country music lover's collection!!"
