All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On her third album, simply titled Faith, Faith Hill put all her chips on a big pop crossover move, picking songs by Diane Warren and Sheryl Crow to sing and giving the entire album a sleek, glossy finish that makes it as comfortable on adult comptemporary radio as it would be on country radio. This may not be country in its sound but it is in its sentiment, as it celebrates love -- there are no heartbreak songs here, just love songs -- hope and optimism, where "The Secret of Life" is a good cup of coffee, mom's apple pie and a beautiful woman: all things that make it comfortable, mature pop.

Unlike Shania Twain, Hill never goes for big, outsized gestures -- there's no glamour or glitz here, nor is there much humor, as there is on The Woman in Me and Come on Over -- she goes for cozy and comforting, and while that can make Faith a little bit too warm and fuzzy (and despite its sheen, it does feel warm) for some tastes, it nevertheless is an expert middle of the road pop album, one that goes down easy, one that blends into the background yet is melodic and endearing enough to be listened to closely, and that's due to Hill's strong voice and open personality. This is before she became a diva -- it's what gave her that status and while that is a subtle difference, it is nonetheless an important one.

    Faith Hill rocks!

    A wonderful cd, along with her other, <i>Breathe</i>. She has a beautiful, soulful voice. This is great to listen to when your sad- it will cheer you up. Every song on every CD is good, unlike many CD's you get just for one good song. This is a great buy!

    BEST CD EVER CREATED

    This is an inspiring collection of songs. Faith Hill brings her soulful voice to a new level with songs such as ''Let Me Let Go'', ''Somebody Stand By Me'', and ''I Love You.'' She also has upbeat songs in her smash ''This Kiss'', ''You Give Me Love'', and ''The Secret of Life''. This collection of work is her finest performance that shows her versatility and passion for singing. I would recommend buying multiple copies and giving them away for gifts.

    One of the Best

    I think this is the best album yet of Faith. I think she has grown in her music. Her and Tim make a wonderful couple and should produce a whole album together that would be the best selling of all times... I am a nurse and when I come home from a stressful day at work they have a calming effect. Thank you.
