Leann Rimes - Whatever We Wanna Album Review

Leann Rimes Whatever We Wanna Album

Review of Whatever We Wanna Album by Leann Rimes

Artist - LeAnn Rimes

Album - Whatever We Wanna

Label - Curb

So, one of country's biggest divas heads into some middle of the road pop rock, a daring experiment only managed before by Faith Hill. And Shania Twain. And Ashlee Simpson. And, maybe The Dixie Chicks. Only 23, this is, remarkably, her ninth album, on top of records like the longest run in the Billboard charts with How Do I Live. There are a lot of people in the market for an album like this, and it keeps its audience happy with some up-beat pop, some ballads, some country and no challenge at all. Of its type, this is pretty good stuff. Rimes sings like some uber-X Factor winner, if a little short of real soul. She doesn't bring a whole load of character to the party, but Whatever We Wanna is listenable, pleasant and wholesome, and, unlike so much adult-oriented female singer-songwriter music these days, it doesn't pretend to be something it's not.

Rating 7/10

I suppose a 7 out of ten isn't bad, because I really enjoyed this album, just like I've enjoyed all of her other albums. She jumps around from country to pop to rock, but it's interesting, because it's not the genre of music that's important to her, it's how the songs move her. I wasn't pleased with the commenting on how the album was "no challenge at all". Anyone who has heard LeAnn sing live knows she's more than a "no challenge at all" Britney Spears sort. She can sing, write her own music, and she's an amazing performer. I strongly suggest buying this album, and if you haven't already, purchase "This Woman" as well.
