Album Review: Spitfire by Leann Rimes

Here is the sens I have of Leann Rimes. At 13 she puts out a hit single. At 17 she appeared as herself in the movie Coyote Ugly, which I have never seen, and then that's pretty much it.

Spitfire came out this year as Rimes is 30. It is her final studio album with her longtime label Curb records. Not sure where she goes from here, if she's signed a new record deal or plans on going independent. But Rimes has been very successful and fairly prolific putting out 10 studio albums in her 17 year career with four of them hitting the number 1 US country spot.

This album is a bit all over the place with Texas swing, country pop, and contemporary adult country. It would have been better if it felt more connected but as a collection of songs it isn't bad and her performance and the arrangements are solid throughout.

If you're looking for an entertaining country album to throw on then give this one a spin and I think you'll enjoy it. I'm hopeful that her next album will revolve mostly around the Austin sound that she pulls off so well at times on this album.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad.
