Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
With all the American flag imagery on the packaging, it's a good bet that this post-September 11, 2001, compilation benefited the disaster recovery -- even though no such promise is made on the insert. It does say, "These classic recordings were made while America was first discovering LeAnn Rimes." The obvious intention was to gather some of Rimes' inspirational and love songs that would uplift and encourage during the national crisis, and also make a nice little stocking stuffer that fits the patriotic mood. It's a nice cross section of American classics (her version of "God Bless America" is a showstopper), Christian-themed gems ("The Sands of Time," "Middle Man"), and even a soft-spoken country-pop version of "The Lord's Prayer." "Put a Little Holiday in Your Heart" is the one tune that actually goes beyond the heartfelt and into the truly fun. Her a capella version of "Amazing Grace" is also an impressive showcase for her well-known vocal chops.

Leave it to LeAnn Rimes, country music's very own Teen Diva, to release a CD entitled 'God Bless America' right when the country is reeling from terrorist attacks. This CD is a get richer scheme for her and her record label that capitolizes on the Nation's grief. If Ms. Rimes really wanted anything to be blessed -- she'd donate 100% of this album's sales to aid in relief for those devastated by the attacks. Instead, she warbles on and on about God and salvation while she's buying a new pair of Gucci shoes and new furnishings for the house she shares with her shacked up boyfriend. Way to go, LeAnn. Way to go. gah.

This cd couldn't have come at a better time! While our nation struggles with grief and fear we should reflect on our lives-listening to LeAnn sing God Bless America and Amazing Grace certainly helps to put things in perspective!

LeAnn Rimes' voice instills ''patriotism'' when you hear the selections from this CD...it rings clear and concise...her sound is at it's best. If you enjoy the classic music of our country, you'll love this CD.
