- Room To Breathe
Album Review by: Cheryl Harvey Hill
To Breathe is classic Reba; with the emphasis on class. The vocal
range, the fire, the emotion; few singers are so adept at burrowing so
deep into your feelings as instantaneously and with such ease. As she
has so successfully done in the past, Ms. McEntire effortlessly sings
her way through life and love challenges that encompass companionship,
fellowship, kinship and friendship. Between the first song and last she
manages to eloquently articulate an extensive spectrum of emotion. No
surprises here since we have come to expect that from her. What may be
considered above and beyond for some entertainers is typical for Reba.
One of the most poignant songs on the album, however, is anything but
typical. "Moving Oleta" tells the story of a man who is forced
to put his beloved wife in a nursing home since he can no longer care
for her himself. Practically everyone who hears this heart-wrenching
saga will recognize someone they know.
the beautiful voice of Linda Davis providing the vocal harmony on many
of the songs, Alison Krauss providing harmony and fiddle on "Once
You've Learned To Be Lonely," and Vince Gill singing along on
"It Just Has To Be This Way," there is something for everyone
This artistic endeavor may have plenty of Room To Breathe for
Reba -- but the majority of the
songs are delivered with so much emotion that the rest of us will be
left breathless. This is Reba at her best.

Review by Jim Weaver:
site, good use of colors and artwork with plenty to see and listen to.
You have to join RebaNet to get to the message board, it doesn't cost
anything but if you ask me they want way too much private information.
You can also read some e-mail from Reba that is posted every now and
then in this area, that's a nice touch. Overall it's a very good looking
site but there are things we would all like to see more of... fan pics,
downloadable promotional pics and or wall paper, a links page would
always be nice.
