Synopsis

Amazon.com
Wynonna never fails to surprise. While anticipating a reunion tour with Mama Naomi Judd, the prodigal daughter ventures further than ever from mainstream country with her fifth solo album. Foremost among the curves she throws listeners is a version of "Help Me" that flatters Joni Mitchell's original with an uncanny imitation. Her album-ending rendition of "I Can't Wait to Meet You," borrowed from pop-soul supernova Macy Gray, sounds more like Rufus-era Chaka Khan. Then there's her revival of the Fabulous Thunderbirds' "Tuff Enough," which has more growl than bite, but features a spoken-word interlude that conjures Elvis in Vegas. Elsewhere, Wynonna seems most at home with a funky groove and a gospel lyric, like an acolyte of Aretha in the land of Patsy Cline. This limited-edition package includes a four-song EP recorded with Mama, adding blues-rock, Western swing, and even a pseudo-psychedelic novelty to the mix. --Don McLeese

"Recently, I purchased "New Day Dawning". In the past, I have never bought a Wynonna album! Primarily, I listen to the usual Contemporary Country Pop format. While this album has a couple of mainstream songs, it heavily relies on influences from other genres of music. It begins with the the song " Going Nowhere", reminiscent of early Judd recordings. Next is the title track. This song marks her return to Tony Brown production. "Can't Nobody Love You Like I Do" is a simple but moving contemporary ballad that is a surefire hit. The fourth track, "Chain Reaction" is classic Wynonna style, with rollicking electric guitars. " Help Me", the Joni Mitchell remake, showcases Wynonna's diverse voice." I've Got Your Love" is Wynonna relying heavily on her three magnificent back-up singers. The seventh "Tuff Enuff" is a Thunderbirds remake. Personally I've never the original, but it probably shies away in comparison. The next is "Who Am I Trying To Fool" pretty lackluster if you ask me. The next two tracks "He Rocks", and " Without You" are both fun and upbeat. "Learning To Love With Love Again" is a gourgeous ballad, that is a definite hit. The last, " I Can't Wait To Meet You" is the best! With funky instrumentation and vocal stylings this song is both fun, and praises the Lord, at the same time! This album is a piece of work, it should revitalize her place at country radio, and any other format she decides to conquer along the way! I was somewhat indifferent on the new Judds tracks, but one in particular sticks out, "The Nineties Was The Sixties Turned Upside Down" is a fun song with a powerful message. These are definitly different than anything else they have ever done. Overall: A GREAT album with the best songs, and very hip production!"
WOW! Wynonna has a winner!

"Anybody who predicted this was going to be a last gasp effort for Wynonna's solo career sure missed the mark. They underestimated a voice that only gets better and better that's been coupled with exceptional songs. She has an uncanny ability to please those who love her performing songs that "rock" and those (like myself) who prefer the slower love ballads ("Who Am I Trying To Fool" and "Can't Nobody Love You"). Her strong, unique voice works well in songs with lyrics that rip your heart out (reminiscent of "Is It Over Yet" and "A Bad Goodbye"). I also enjoyed the CD inserts -- the photos were well done and her "thank you's" to friends and colleagues were interesting to read. I wasn't very fond of the the Judd reunion CD, but I was never a big fan of Naomi. I'd like to hear more Wynonna duets with Clint Black and other male vocalists (Kenny Rogers, Hal Ketchum, perhaps?)"
