Consumer Guide Reviews:

Lee Ann Womack [Decca, 1997] Neither

Some Things I Know [MCA, 1998]
Reclaiming female feistiness, which is as close as Nashville gets to feminism ("I'll Think of a Reason Later," "The Man Who Made My Mama Cry"). *

I Hope You Dance [MCA, 2000]
Way more soulful than, you know, Trisha Yearwood ("Stronger Than I Am," "Why They Call It Falling"). **

Something Worth Leaving Behind [MCA, 2002]
"I Need You," "He'll Be Back" Choice Cuts

There's More Where That Came From [MCA Nashville, 2004] Dud

The Way I'm Livin' [Sugar Hill, 2014]
Takes sin almost as seriously as Jerry Lee Lewis, only she's nicer about it ("The Way I'm Livin'," "Sleeping With the Devil") **
