All the Women I Am

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
When Reba McEntire released Keep on Loving You in 2009, it debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 and Country charts simultaneously; it scored three Top 20 singles including a number one, and despite mixed reviews, it went gold. All the Women I Am is an attempt to follow that success, and prove that despite her long career in a fickle marketplace, she can still run with contemporary country's young mavericks. Nowhere is this more evident than on the album's first single, "Turn on the Radio," which borrows heavily from Carrie Underwood's uptempo, rollicking interpretation of country pop

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
When Reba McEntire released Keep on Loving You in 2009, it debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 and Country charts simultaneously; it scored three Top 20 singles including a number one, and despite mixed reviews, it went gold. All the Women I Am is an attempt to follow that success, and prove that despite her long career in a fickle marketplace, she can still run with contemporary country's young mavericks. Nowhere is this more evident than on the album's first single, "Turn on the Radio," which borrows heavily from Carrie Underwood's uptempo, rollicking interpretation of country pop
ock. Beginning with a distorted, '80s-sounding hard rock guitar riff, it contains a slew of synths and a female backing chorus. McEntire offers her throatiest contralto and references texting, Twitter, and club DJs in the lyrics. While Underwood is the obvious reference point, those who can remember it can go all the way back to Shania Twain's Come on Over album for the big, cavernous drum sounds producer Dan Huff gets and for the hook in the refrain. The track is followed by a contemporary country interpretation of "If I Were a Boy" --yes, the Beyonce hit, though here it attempts to be a soft rock power ballad. The natural-sounding balladry of "Somebody's Chelsea" (that has its roots in a scene from the film P.S. I Love You), "The Day She Got Divorced," and the sassy, bluesy, "A Little Want To" all contain McEntire's trademark warmth and authority.

    the editorial review posted gets a one star rating, while All The Women I Am gets a five. Why would one compare Reba's iconoic style as a knock off of on-the-scene newbies like Underwood ( nothing against Carrie), but Reba's time tested loyalty to country music is rewarded ten-fold by the adoration of her fans. McEntire's ability to evolve her music to the times is parallel to how down-home people the nation over continue to make America what country music is founded upon.
