Best Wynonna album to me

"I still say that this is my favorite Wynonna Judd album. She said before the album came out that she had to go through over 2,000(!) songs to select the 10 for this album. Can you just imagine a lot of keeps and rejections that she had to go through? Wynonna sings with lots of passion here and I heard the few Tina Arena written songs on here that fit so well with her voice. Judd avoids the commercially-slick sound that dominated her second album and does a fine job vocally here. Even though she's not as dominant a female singer in country now, this is by far her best effort to me and solidifies her strengths as a solo artist outside of she and mother Naomi's '80s success as a duo."

"Wow! I just love this one. She has that amazing growling voice and the music here is splendid. Clean production and good choice of material is here at hand. Ballads are in majority here and they're all beautiful. Rock fans won't be disappointed here with her own version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird", lasting a solid 7 minutes with long guitars solos, "Somebody To Love You" and "Old Enough To Know Better" (nothing to do with Wade Hayes' song of the same title). Otherwise, "To Be Loved By You", "My Angel Is Here", "Love By Grace" are strongly beautifully crafted but the best ballads are "Heaven Help My Heart" and "Change The World". At the end, there is a great R&B song where Wy gives all her strength. Wonderful set"
Great CD! Had to comment on a previous comment!

"Sure, this CD is great, I will get to that ..but I just read a review on here by someone who called her a "New" country star! I hope you are just kidding around or have been in a cave for the past few decades but as of this posting, Wynonna has been in the music business, be it Country or rock or even "cross-over" which is a doubtful genre (I hate genre's!), for Twenty-One (21)years!
Ever hear of that little know duo "The Judds"? (LOL) Anyway this Cd is great but "Tell Me Why" is still my favorite even after hearing her latest "What The World Needs Now Is Love". All great CD's! Still would love a complete Judds reunion with the original band mates as well! With Don Potter on the helm!"
