Martina McBride's fourth RCA album may not be her best work, but it remains a state-of-the-art '90s pop-country album, filled with insouciantly catchy melodies, flawlessly smooth production, and some genuinely memorable material. The 1997 set is balanced between earnestly romantic tunes like "Here in My Heart," midtempo acoustic songs like "Be That Way," and quasi-feminist numbers like "A Broken Wing," which rivals "Independence Day" for her most focused, soulful performance to date. The album might have benefited from more judicious editing: the cutesy opening snippet, the superficial "Keeping My Distance," and the gooey "Valentine" feel out of place on this mostly well crafted, emotionally sung work. --Roy Kasten

"I'm a big martina fan. i dont have all her albums, but i do have a decent collection. i think she has an incredible voice, and seems to always find the greatest songs to match it.
This album, in my opinion, is likely her greatest original release. there is not one song that i don't like. and aside from her greatest hits (which i love cuz it has most of my faves), this would be my fave. a very powerful album vocally and lyrically.
i definetly strongly recommend adding this one to your collection."

"In response to the "It's Martina" review from Sam, the beginning and end of this CD was not done by her kids. It was Martina at a very young age.
I always thought that this album was her best. Each of her albums obviously has some great songs, but for me, Evolution was the album that made me the Martina fan that I am."
