Review MARTINA MCBRIDE - RECKLESS - CD
Hits And More

Review One of the most spectacular voices in any genre of music, Martina McBride is a four time CMA Female Vocalist and Grammy winning recording artist with more than 18 million in album sales. Hits and More is a collection of four number 1's, 10 top 5, and 2 top 10 hits along with 3 new tracks.
Everlasting

Review With that powerful voice of hers, it didn't take long for this small-town Kansas girl to go from selling Garth Brooks T-shirts to joining him the top of country charts. This best-of CD features 13 of her biggest smashes, plus four tracks exclusive to this release. You can also own her Greatest Hits as a 11-song DVD featuring exclusive interview footage with the star.
The Essential Martina McBride

Review In the abstract, there are two Martina McBrides heard in this ample collection, which features 14 hits from the Kansas-born singer's studio albums, along with four inspired new cuts. At one extreme there's the demure cover-girl-pretty warbler who serves up fervent and endearing love pledges like "Wild Angels," "Safe in the Arms of Love," and "I Love You." Then there's the mature, poised, socially conscious mother of two who grapples with darker topics like poverty and inequality ("Love's the Only House") and child and spousal abuse (the wrathful "Independence Day" and the ineffably sad "Concrete Angel"). There are certainly impressive samples of both Martinas on this anthology. On other cuts--like the bluesy, naughty new track "When God-Fearin' Women Get the Blues" and the angry "Life #9"--the forces of light and darkness, anger and felicity, commingle in a manner that's no less intriguing and provocative. --Bob Allen
Playing With Fire

Review 2012 two CD collection from one of modern Country Music's most famous performers. 40 tracks including 'The Time Has Come', 'Independence Day', 'My Baby Loves Me' and many others.
Martina McBride - Greatest Hits

Review 2011 album from the Country vocalist, her 11th album overall. The breadth of Martina's talents as recording artist, producer, songwriter, and concert entertainer has made her an in-demand performer and personality. Eleven features some of Martina's most personal songs to date, with the powerhouse vocalist penning six of the 11 tracks. While dabbling with songwriting in the past, Martina's newfound passion is evident in these songs, giving fans a deeper look into her reality.

Deep Tracks

Review Martina McBride is something of a marvel. Throughout her career she has managed to walk a tightrope between Nash-Vegas commercial concerns and the high art of well-crafted songwriting and serious singing that makes up modern country at its best. Her hits in the Nineties ("Wild Angels," Independence Day," "Life #9," "Safe in the Arms of Love") were beacons of light in a darkness of clichéd and over-produced cowboy-disco tunes. Martina continues her tradition of tasteful tune picking and powerful but never over-the-top vocals. "This One's for the Girls" mines much missed Mary Chapin Carpenter territory, while tunes like "In My Daughter’s Eyes" and "So Magical" (with its scenes of rural bliss) stay safely this side of excessive sentimentality thanks to McBride's considered performances. Even pop tunes like "When You Love Me" and "Learning to Fall" are kept country with an emphasis on guitars, fiddles, and steels over syrupy synthesizers. Throughout, producers Paul Worley and McBride herself give Nashville lessons on how to make a record that is shiny but never slick. Finally, her live performance of "Over the Rainbow" is a lesson on delivering a show-stopping vocal with minimal melisma and maximum soul. --Michael Ross
The Rest of Our Life

Review 2014 album from the Country superstar. An extremely talented performer and vocalist, Martina's musical interests and inspirations extend beyond the Country genre. Everlasting is a collection of R&B and Soul covers. The album includes duets with Kelly Clarkson and Gavin DeGraw, and was produced by Don Was.
