EDITORS’ NOTES

Breathe was a landmark in Faith Hill’s career, making her the biggest country-pop crossover success this side of Shania. Aside from creating the template for countless female country singers to follow, it reveals, in retrospect, just how wide-ranging her talents were: The first couple of cuts overflow with funk and R&B flavors, “Bringing out the Elvis” is swampy blues-rock, and “If I Should Fall Behind” is a potent Springsteen cover. Hill’s beguiling way with a country ballad is a given, of course.
