Shania Twain: The Woman in Me: Diamond Edition Album Review
Shania Twain’s The Woman In Me: Diamond Edition is available now, October 2nd. Check out our full review below as we dig a little deeper into the new version of the iconic album.
The legendary Man! I Feel Like A Woman! international icon, Shania Twain, has released a diamond edition of her 1995 ground-breaking album The Woman in Me, featuring hit songs “Any Man Of Mine”, “(If You’re Not In It For Love) I’m Outta Here!”, “You Win My Love” and “No One Needs To Know”. With unreleased tracks, live recordings, and remastered versions of the original productions, this new project from Twain celebrates a breakthrough career in country music.
The Woman In Me: Diamond Edition is a reminder of Twain’s artistry as a world-renowned singer-songwriter, performer, and female icon. The original 1995 album, which marked her second release after her 1993 self-titled debut, received a Grammy for Best Country Album and spent five months climbing to the top of the Billboard country charts until victory struck in July when The Woman in Me carefully and tenaciously reached the #1 slot. At that point, the project had already reached gold for the artist who became the sixth best-selling female artist in the country.
Now, 25 years later, Twain has included 16 new tracks with five live performances from her December 2019 residency at Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas, as well as 11 early renditions of the songs from nearly a year before the album release. Two tracks, recorded in September 1998 at Dallas Reunion Area for the DirectTV Shania: Live DVD, are also featured. In addition, nine remixes are included that indirectly showcase Twain’s sound adaptation across multiple genres with former producer, Robert John “Mutt” Lange.
Through live versions of some of her biggest hits, Twain delivers private concerts to all listeners at home through the Diamond Edition during a time when that energy cannot be physically felt. Though, the “That Don’t Impress Me Much” singer executes emotional and sentimental energy through her own notable voice and fiery lyrics that are predominantly concerned with empowering women.
And, with dance mixes to “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” and “(If You’re Not In It For Love) I’m Outta Here!” as well as Mutt Lange mixes and versions of songs that lack certain instruments such as the steel guitar or banjo, The Woman In Me: Diamond Edition truly holds some nostalgia through the diverse takes on these timeless classics from Twain.
The collection is offered through two and three CD configurations, one of which including Twain’s earlier vocal mix to the album. The remastered tracks are also available through a traditional LP as well as a limited edition crystal clear LP. For more information, visit the official store.
