This Album is Incredible!

""It Matters to Me" is the perfect reprieve from Faith's pop album "Breathe". Listening to the songs "Someone Else's Dream" (#1) and "Let's Go To Vegas" (#2) reminds me, as well as Faith's other country fans, of that special twang that *was* Faith Hill. One of the best songs on this album is the powerful "A Man's Home Is His Castle" (#5). This song depicts a woman who is abused and unfairly dominated by her husband. The title track, "It Matters to Me" (#3) is a heartfelt song that realistically speaks about communication in a relationship. Also, the spiritual "Keep Walkin' On" (#10) with Shelby Lynne is a great number that ends the record nicely. This album is an incredible work that's bunches of fun- you'll love it!"
Excellent Sophomore Album

"There's nothing on IT MATTERS TO ME as brash as her country take on the rock classic "Piece Of My Heart." Otherwise, Faith Hill's second album sounds like her first--twangy country with working-class heart, a sassy voice reminiscent of Loretta Lynn, and a sense of social relevance learned from Reba McEntire. Best of all, Hill still cuts across a range of styles, refusing to be tied down to any one of the sub-genres her influences might suggest. "Bed Of Roses" and "You Will Be Mine" are assertive and rocking numbers about, respectively, keeping a lothario at bay and chasing a guy who's too shy to make the first move. On them, Hill's big southern voice is matched by jangling electric guitars that wouldn't be out of place on a Bruce Springsteen album. When it opens, "A Man's Home Is His Castle" could, in fact, be a piano ballad about one of Springsteen's heroic blue-collar losers, but as it swells into a studio pop arrangement, it turns out this particular loser is an abused wife who's about to buy a gun; this is the kind of reality that doesn't impose itself on mainstream country albums too often. "A Room In My Heart," on the other hand, shows an affinity for classic country-pop balladry with its beautifully slow chorus. "Let's Go To Vegas" is a quickie wedding proposal, which--depending on who's making it--could be the kind of mistake that'll get you into a mid-life crisis before you're 25, or the kind of crazy hunch that could snap you right out of one. So far in her bright career, Faith Hill has shown the kind of clearheadedness and surefootedness that if she asked you, you'd be a fool not to take the chance."
