Recorded at Soundshop Recording Studios, Nashville, Tennessee.
There's nothing on IT MATTERS TO ME as brash as her country take on the rock classic "Piece Of My Heart." Otherwise, Faith Hill's second album sounds like her first--twangy country with working-class heart, a sassy voice reminiscent of Loretta Lynn, and a sense of social relevance learned from Reba McEntire. Best of all, Hill still cuts across a range of styles, refusing to be tied down to any one of the sub-genres her influences might suggest.
"Bed Of Roses" and "You Will Be Mine" are assertive and rocking numbers about, respectively, keeping a lothario at bay and chasing a guy who's too shy to make the first move. On them, Hill's big southern voice is matched by jangling electric guitars that wouldn't be out of place on a Bruce Springsteen album. When it opens, "A Man's Home Is His Castle" could, in fact, be a piano ballad about one of Springsteen's heroic blue-collar losers, but as it swells into a studio pop arrangement, it turns out this particular loser is an abused wife who's about to buy a gun; this is the kind of reality that doesn't impose itself on mainstream country albums too often. "A Room In My Heart," on the other hand, shows an affinity for classic country-pop balladry with its beautifully slow chorus.
"Let's Go To Vegas" is a quickie wedding proposal, which--depending on who's making it--could be the kind of mistake that'll get you into a mid-life crisis before you're 25, or the kind of crazy hunch that could snap you right out of one. So far in her bright career, Faith Hill has shown the kind of clearheadedness and surefootedness that if she asked you, you'd be a fool not to take the chance.

Faith Hill's second album, IT MATTERS TO ME, continues the successful inroads of her debut. Country purists may dismiss Hill out of hand for her glamorous good looks and her crossover commercial appeal, but the fine material and performances here prove that she is an artist of substance. The pop sensibility underlying this collection of tunes enhances rather than detracts, and proves again that country can be as catchy and accessible as anything on mainstream radio.
The album's two singles, the love ballad "It Matters to Me" and the buoyant "Let's Go to Vegas," are highlights, but the rest of the album matches up in quality, with folksy reflections on home and family ("Someone Else's Dream"), gospel-inflected boogie ("Keep Walkin' On"), and full-on power ballads ("A Man's Home is His Castle"). Hill's supple voice is well-suited to each style, giving this sharp, polished pop-country effort a sense of unity.
Artist Overview
By the end of the 1990s, Faith Hill (n?e Audrey Faith Perry) had become half of the First Couple of Country Music--the nickname given to her and her husband, fellow superstar Tim McGraw. Hill combines Cover Girl good looks (literally--she was a model for the cosmetics company) with a big, powerful voice that mixes influences from pop, gospel, rock, and classic country. In 1999, Hill crossed over to the pop charts with her worldwide smash single "This Kiss." Ever since then, she's been as much a pop diva as a country siren, though her passionate duets with McGraw continue to delight country fans.
