1st Album since 99
Faith Hill
Released : October 15, 2002

After the multi-platinum and multi-awarded Country Album, "Breathe", Faith Hill releases "Cry".

When I opened the CD coming from Camarillo (Calabasas) outlet, I was thinking why I bought the CD in the first place? Maybe the price? ($12.93 - nope). Maybe its because its at no. 1? Nope. This is my first taste of Faith Hill and country music. And boy, did I get a big jolt. I thought I bought a Celine Dion album. Yuck! Tables were overturned. Envelops were pushed too far. Faith has pulled the plug from her country days and is shifting into territories she first ventured when she was included in the "Divas" album. At least, if there's somebody to replace Celine in pop queendom, someone as hot as Faith will do it. But she doesnt belt the way Miss Dion does....Here's a message to Faith Hill : "please have faith, don't let us "Cry" the next time we buy your next album."

Passable tracks include: Cry, One, If You;'re Gonnay Fly Away. Please leave it behind. Really.
