Country music super star Faith Hill has released her first CD in more than three years on the Warner Bros label entitled Fireflies.
This is her sixth release with each of the previous five being multi-platinum efforts, and nine country music #1's under her belt. Oh and don't forget about her being a multi Grammy Award Winner.
With a resume like the one just described Hill is clearly one of the biggest, and brightest stars in all of music. Not just country music.
Fireflies is somewhat of a return effort for Hill as she gets back to her country roots after experimenting outside the boundaries of country music on her last outing, Breathe.
I like Fireflies because of it's high production value, and the focus of the collection is once again on Faith's incredible singing voice.
The CD launches with a very vibrant tune in Sunshine & Summertime and from there proceeds to remind us that when Hill is in top form, as she is here, the quality of her voice is second to none.
Overall Fireflies is very easy to listen to and is what I call, must have music. I give it two thumbs up. Even the casual music fan will appreciate and enjoy Hills incredible vocal presentations provided here.
The standout tunes on Fireflies are Sunshine & Summertime [track 1], Like We Never Loved At All [track 7], and Paris [track 14]. My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [. . . as in “Stuck On REpeat"] is track 5, Stealing Kisses. Very nice!
