Ann Womack - Some Things I Know
Don't Want to Know
Womack, in my opinion, does not have a terrific voice. It's
easy enough to listen to, but not spectacular. Not awful,
but not in the ranks of Trisha Yearwood or Martina McBride.
For that reason, she needs to pick extroidinary songs to make
up for her lack of vocal talent. She does not do that on this
not an awful album. It has a collection of pretty songs. That's
just what they are, too. Pretty. Most of them showcase Lee
Ann's trademark traditional country sound. That would be great,
except the sound does not have good songs to accompany it.
are a few highlights. "I'll Think of a Reason Later" is a
tongue-in-cheek tale about the woman who stole Lee Ann's man.
"Now You See Me (Now You Don't)" is an uptempo kiss-off song
in which she tells the one she is leaving that it will be
of the songs themselves aren't bad. In fact, "The Man that
Made My Mama Cry" is a very powerful song. But Lee Ann doesn't
put any effort into it. She sounds like she is just reading
the words off the paper in tune with the music. I'd rather
not spend $16 to have someone recite things to me. If Lee
Ann would feign some emotion, the album would be much better.
