One of the best if not the best album she has ever done

"Trisha Yearwood's Real Live Woman is by far going to be my favorite album of hers. She just decided to cut loose and get down to business on this album. In a country music world where everyone is going pop (and that's not always a bad thing), Yearwood has done nothing short of just turning around and going in the opposite direction. Take note: steel guitar runs throughout. Imagine that on a country album! Yearwood has always been quite astute at selecting songs, and this time around it is no different. My favorite is Try Me Again. I dare you not to think this is musical excellence. Her voice has never sounded better. All the songs are great, but my favorites besides Try Me Again are I Did, Sad Eyes (a Bruce Springsteen cover), One Love (which if this wouldn't be a good Bonnie Raitt song, I don't know what would), When A Love Song Sings the Blues, and Come Back When It Ain't Rainin'. It's just a superb album and a must have if you're a music lover or long for an album that doesn't rely on drum machines or cookie-cutter songs that rehash the same thing over and over. This album further proves just how unbelievably talented Trisha Yearwood is. Like many reviewers say, she is one of the best vocalists working in any musical genre. I almost forgot to tell you what a great song the title track is too."
Overall an Excellent Album!

"Trisha Yearwood is my all-time favorite female country singer. Aside from the fact that she has an amazingly beautiful voice, I like her because she sells her music, rather than her looks and her body (although she is a very pretty lady). "Real Live Woman" is a wonderful album, with soft ballads and songs that really hit home. My personal favorites are Where Are You Now, Sad Eyes, I Did, Come Back When It Ain't Raining, and of course, the title track Real Live Woman. I normally don't buy a CD after hearing only one song from it, but I took a chance with this one and I'm glad I did! I am very pleased with this one. This album is excellent overall, and it is more country sounding than some of her previous efforts. I always though it would be impossible for Trisha to top her outstanding "Songbook: A Collection of Hits" album, but I think she may have just done it with this one. Add "Real Live Woman" to your collection today! It's a fantastic country album."
Trisha finally holds nothing back

"I am real picky about my music - someone's got to blow me away and make me believe what they are singing.I felt like I had been hit by a tornado in 1994 when I bought my first Trisha Yearwood cd Hearts on Armor. And she made me believe what she was singing like a preacher on judgement day.As a long time Trisha fan I am excited about this new album for many reasons.For starters, this is the first time that the fullness and awesome power of Trisha's voice has been captured on tape. Seeing Trisha in concert has always left me wanting an album where she just went in the studio to let go and hold nothing back. This album really does it -- her vocals are amazing.Trisha also holds nothing back on song selection for this album. Fans will be so happy to finally hear Trisha sing a Linda Ronstadt song. The Linda cover, "Try Me Again" is by far the absolute best track on the album. If you want to hear how Trisha nails it then be sure to order Linda Ronstadt's Hasten Down The Wind cd.With the exception of "Real Live Woman," the songs on this cd are not a happy look at love but a look at the ups and downs from a great love. I could write in this review what I mean by that and give an example from 11 of the 12 songs, but you've got to listen to this album to know what I am saying. I almost wish "Real Live Woman" was the last cut on the cd because this song is about a woman who's been through it all and has really found herself.I hope Trisha knows that through it all she has found herself with the best cd of her career.My choices for best cuts are "Try Me Again," "Where Are You Now," "I Did," "I'm Still Alive," and "Real Live Woman.""
