Album Review

Lavishly produced and packaged, Cry marks the continued ascent of Faith Hill from the lowlands of down-home authenticity to the heights of pop superstardom. Though plenty of Nashville A-team players back her up, the sound they churn out has almost nothing to do with country music. Riding a tide of massed synthesizer textures, sweeping orchestral strings, thundering drums, rock guitar licks, and melodramatic dynamics, Hill strives for the biggest possible gestures in her performance. The results are the kind of glitzy fireworks normally associated with Star Search or American Idol, in which the lyrics take a backseat to raw exhibitionism, and only the most cursory nod is made toward country lyrical convention. ~ Robert L. Doerschuk, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Worth it

After the success of Breathe, Faith Hill has seemed to make the crossover to pop / rock and it has certainly been worth the wait. The three singles to be released from this album are all ballads, Cry, When The Lights Go Down and You're Still Here, dont let this put you off. Funky songs such as the opener Free and One prove that Faith Hill is a versitile artist who can pull the change to a new genre off perfectly well. However, not all the album is pleasing on the ear as Beautiful shouldnt have been graced with a place on the album. Unsaveable should please her country audience as it certainly hints towards what genre brought her fame.

Faith Hill - Cry

I did not know a lot about Faith Hill or her music when I downloaded this album. I am a big fan of country artists like Shania Twain, LeAnn Rimes and Gretchen Wilson but Faith Hill has never really appealed to me - until I heard her song 'Mississippi Girl'. I bought 'Fireflies' a few weeks ago and loved it, so I decided to buy 'Cry' and see what all the fuss was about - after all, the critics really did not like this album!! It is clear from the first few songs of this album that this is not a country album. Sure, there is a bit of slide guitar here and there but overall it is basically pop. Faith Hill was clearly aiming to be the next Céline Dion or Whitney Houston with this release, but she really doesn't have the right selections on this disc to rival those two divas! The majority of songs on this album are ballads, and some are done quite well. 'Cry', 'When The Lights Go Down' and 'If This Is The End' are excellent, but some of the other songs like 'Beautiful' and 'Baby You Belong' are bizarre choices for someone who is aiming for success as a pop diva. Faith Hill may be trying to win over the AC crowd with her slick production and vocal chops, but she really doesn't nail it here. Although it is a good effort!

10 years on and still rocking

Originally purchased this album in the US back in november 2002 and must say that 10 years since that it's still one of my favourite albums ever. Cry is an incredible body of work, very consistent, doesn't let you down with a single song. Not only Faith is an incredibly beautiful woman, she's also an incredible singer, managing to delivery her heart and soul with every song she sings. I've been listening to it so many times that thought there's nothing else left to discover. However when I put it into a shuffle, the songs come out in different sequence which makes them new again and makes me appreciating them even more. Free was always one of my favourites, upbit song with the very strong message. In times of a breakdown it always helped me to see the light at the end of even the darkest tunnel. Baby You Belong is bringing tears to my eyes no matter how many time I listen to it. I think I Will is another winner and one of the strongest and rockiest songs on the album. You're Still Here is a beautiful and heartbreaking ballad and a proper closer for a great ablum. If someone asks me if I like this album, I would definitely say No, as I LOVE this album. Highly recommended. Bless
P.S. also purchase Cry single together with the album, as it contains 2 non-album tracks: rocker Wicked and gut-wrenching ballad Shadows. Thumbs Up!

Biography

Born: 21 September 1967 in Jackson, MS

Genre: Country

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the biggest female country stars of the '90s and 2000s, Faith Hill also took advantage of the inroads Shania Twain made into pop territory, becoming an enormous crossover success by the end of the millennium. Of course, Hill's movie star good looks certainly helped her cause, and her much-celebrated marriage to fellow country star Tim McGraw gave her career an extra kick of glamour...
