    Giving it a listen now on my way to work, what I've heard so far is great - the only slightly dull track has been Soldier.

    I'm Alright - those lyrics are deep.

    It's very different from her previous work, it's a lot more pop and I'm not sure about Kiss and Make Up it's a bit weird thrown in the middle of the album. I'm sure after a few listens I'll love it all. Poor Me is my favourite, or Roll Me On The River.

    Wow, this album is a rollercoaster of styles and emotions!

    Gonna take me some listens... but loving what I hear so far! <3
    Listening to a new Shania album after 15 years got me teary eyed.... so so special.

    This is really nice on the first listen, though it felt a little bit long. "Poor Me" is the obvious highlight for me so far.

    To wait 15 years for a new album and to literally like nothing off it. Excuse me while I go cry in a corner. :(

    Feeling like this too, but I still support her, she's a beautiful human being.

    I feel like that too, it's mostly kinda boring. Poor Me sounds good though

    I think Shania will have a tough time here in Germany. Because of some video games (FIFA) and some hardware stuff (two new X-Box or whatever), all the deliveries got messed up and at least in my town where I live, it was not possible to get either the Game of Thrones soundtrack or "Now" by Shania in three different stores (Media Markt, Saturn, Expert). We have a public holiday on Tuesday (3rd October) and all stores are closed anyway and I was told that they will get the album probably on Thursday So in the end, it's likely that this album will only have 1 day of physical sales because of Universal messing up.

    Don't know about other cities around my country.

    More than 2/3 of the album ranges from good to excellent.

    It's a strong comeback as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm still going to play it a few more times. You can't really get a full judgement on an album on the first day of the release but with Shania I've always had instant favorites and this time around I can barely remember how the song sound. I also played the Deluxe version though which was a bad idea since I hate long albums and I'm sure there is probably some filler opposed to the regular track list.

    Have always been a huge shania fan but this album (aside from Poor Me) is deffo not for me, the songs are way apart from my liking and i have no intention to repeat it any further for now but I certainly have a huge respect towards shania both as an artist and as an human.

    I agree.

    I love the album. I don't know why so many ppl hate on her music.

    SHANIA HEADED TO NO #1

    Based on very early reads, it looks like Shania Twain's Now (Mercury Nashville) is headed for a #1 debut. This is Twain's first studio album in 15 years.

    Shania is expected to score a six-figure debut, which at this point looks sufficient to surpass bows by Safehouse/Island/Hollywood's Demi Lovato and RCA's Miley Cyrus. Check back here tomorrow for updates.

    I really hope she get #1 on the album charts. She totally deserves it after what she has been through.

    I know me too, I like it more and more with each listen. It's no Come On Over or Up! But it's still a solid record.

    Has anyone read the Rolling Stone interview for this? They say Swingin' is tropical pop. It's like they haven't even heard the album.

    The Guardian said the same - I was reading these reviews yesterday as I was listening to the album for the first time and none of them really made sense to me.:

    On Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed she sings defiantly about how “Fear disappears every time I close my eyes” against a tropical-tinged country beat

    I'd be extremely happy for such occurrence.
    Hope she gets it

    *Fingers crossed* I hope she makes it!
    ? Girls' Generation ?
    ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

    Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

    I am starting to really like the album now. It's a new direction for her - no more rock country with all the bells and whistles and clever harmonies from Mutt. And of course, her voice has drastically changed. But after a few listens and once I stopped comparing it with her old stuff, her new stuff is still good - just different and more mature. I didn't think much of Swingin at first listen but have been humming it all day.

    In any event, even with Up, I didn't like the album at first in the early 2000's and only started liking it earlier this year when I left it playing continuously throughout the day. So that meant I had a wonderful Shania album for 15 or so years and never even knew it!
