iTunes Editors’ Notes

Leann Rimes is that rare country artist who can cross over to pop and rock without sacrificing her identity, even though she's left Nashville for Los Angeles. She's had her commercial hits, and she's sung from her heart, and the two have often overlapped. Her record label staggered the release of this fine album; as it was carefully rolled out over the world, fans quickly realized that you should never count Rimes out. Cowriting songs with esteemed writers, she's captured a natural tone that never sounds forced and gets to the heart of difficult matters of life and love. When she tackles "Gasoline and Matches" by alt-country's Buddy and Julie Miller, she brings Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas and guitar legend Jeff Beck along for the ride. Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski join her for "What Have I Done," a track written with David Baerwald and Dan Wilson. "I Do Now" is the sound of Rimes coming to life. "You've Ruined Me" takes an alternate look back. "You Ain't Right" nails a vintage sound, while "Just a Girl Like You" mixes modern sounds with the past.

Customer Reviews

Can't wait

I have been waiting for this album for so long! I love the songs I've heard so far. What a beautiful voice. Hopefully the haters will stay away. Everyone needs to move on. She deserves her success.

Don't miss out..

LeAnn Rimes is one in a million. No one sounds like her. Her voice is a gift and she chooses to share that gift with us. Who cares what she does when she goes home? She doesn't owe us any explanation. She makes incredible music. She has written/sang songs that have seen me through the highs and lows of the last ten years of my life and for that I am grateful. Tabloids will not sway me from purchasing another brilliant album. I will always be a fan.

Honest Album

I've heard all of the songs on this album and I must say, they all come from an honest, personal place. Whether or not you agree with LeAnn's personal life, you cannot ignore her talent as a singer and her growing ability as a writer. "Spitfire" covers a lot of ground: there are fiesty uptempo numbers like "Gasoline and Matches" and the title track, there are mellow reflections like "Bottle," and then there are introspective ballads like "Borrowed" and "What Have I Done." It is in these harsh, honest ballads that "Spitfire" finds it's heart. The songs are well crafted and the material, while it may turn off some listeners, is from a very real place. I applaud LeAnn for taking risks and talking about touchy issues. She sings about what she has went through rather than what is more commerically acceptable. Her connection to the meaterial is obvious. For all it's highlights, the album does have a few weak moments. Some of the recordings sound a bit low quality, although that might be an artistic choice. Some songs, like "Just A Girl," are far too generic sounding for someone so far into their career. That being said, the strengths outweigh the weaknesses and the album is certainly worth the purchase price.

In 1996, LeAnn Rimes burst out of nowhere with her debut single "Blue," which immediately captured the attention of country fans across America. It wasn't just the fact that her rich, powerful vocals were remarkably similar to Patsy Cline's — it was the fact that Rimes was only 13 years old. Like Tanya Tucker and Brenda Lee before her, she had a hit with her debut single and was barely a teenager at the time. It was quite an auspicious way to begin a career.
