The come-from-nowhere success of Shania Twain's previous album, The Woman in Me, proved that the world was ready for a combination of traditional instruments, girl-power themes, and dance-pop dynamics. Whether Twain is a modern-day Dolly Parton or a country music Spice Girl is a matter of perspective; on Come on Over, she accentuates the sing-along choruses and simple dance rhythms while downplaying the country elements. As a pop move, it works wonderfully for Twain, earning her a valued spot on MTV, VH1, and pop radio. The emphasis is on fun rather than depth, of course, but no one can accuse her of being stingy: she and her producer/husband, slick-rock king Robert "Mutt" Lange (Def Leppard, Bryan Adams, AC/DC), load down the album with 16 songs, all of them quite radio-friendly. This U.S. issue of the "international version" pushes the record's many hit singles even further toward pop with a slate of remixes. --Michael McCall

I have to say this is one of my favorite cd's. I love her music because it is fun. I also like the emotion she brings to her songs.

"One of my biggest pet peeves in music is the increasing trend to do two or more versions of a song. Often, you'd hear a catchier, dancier pop "radio edit" of a song and find the mix on the album to be less appealing, sometimes to the extreme of sounding like a completely different song. It was for this reason that I had avoided Shania's "Come On Over" release, since I liked what I heard on the radio, but disliked the "country mixes" I heard while sampling her original CD. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that her record company has come to thier senses and released this "International Version" to compensate for those of us that prefer the remixed pop Shania. From "Don't Impress Me Much" and "From this Moment On" I realize she's had 4 successful singles from this album, and they're all here--for less than the price of buying one import single containing any of these mixes. If you're like me and resisted the original, buy this one--you won't be disappointed!"

"Switching onto VH1 one day I was confronted with the vision of a leapord-skin pattern clad young lady wandering through a desert remarking upon how unimpressible she was. With a raised eyebrow I decided to watch. Twelve seconds later I was hooked. I wanted it - but I had to find out who this was. My first experience of Shania. Based on one song ("That Don't Impress Me Much") - I bought the album and haven't looked back since. With a variety of songs, from emotional to toe-tapping I love every one. I can't wait for her next installment."
