On Twisted Angel, LeAnn Rimes has emerged with a fine set of songs--four of which she co-wrote herself, and all of which reflect the growth she has achieved over the last few years. LeAnn Rimes has gone from that "little girl with the big voice" to a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to fight to get it. Working with producer/songwriters Peter Amato, Desmond Child, and Gregg Pagani, Rimes' album represents a major stylistic departure for the 19-year-old, who originally broke through in the country and Christian music markets. That trademarked vocal now wraps itself around anthemic arena-rockers (the autobiographical first single "Life Goes On" and "Suddenly"), insightful songs full of hope and optimism ("Sign of Life" and "You Made Me Find Myself"), R&B/funk ("Trouble With Goodbye"), swamp-blues ("Twisted Angel") and even seductive, dance-floor techno ("Tic Toc"). "I've had a lot of unique experiences and I've put them in the music... but it's scary, too. There's no safety net this time. Nobody to fall back on. I've put my heart and soul into this record. It's the first time I've done something like this, and I'm really happy with it."

"She remains a monster vocalist just getting started.  Billboard Magazine
"Rimes's gigantic soprano never flags, yet remains best in ballads.  Blender

Muze PNote TWISTED ANGEL shows just how far the newly adult vocalist has come from her teenage-prodigy beginnings. For one thing, she seems determined to leave her country roots far behind. Though she started down the pop route as early as 1997's YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE, TWISTED ANGEL is completely devoid of any country inflection whatsoever, focusing instead (as have a couple of Rimes's previous efforts, to varying degrees) on modern, often even danceable, pop. Rimes may be closer to Britney Spears than to Kitty Wells these days, but she seems to be expressing more of her inner self. It's surely no coincidence that three of the four songs on which she gets co-writing credit utilize the imagery of the angel with dirty wings, the child star with tears behind the smile. Lyrically, Rimes is clearly exploring the conflicts and contradictions that her childhood fame brought her, which may or may not take her higher up the pop charts, but can only be a positive artistic step for a still-young singer.

Always mature beyond her age, the 13-year-old girl with the Patsy Cline twang earned two Grammy Awards for Blue, her 1996 major label debut. RIAA-certified multi-platinum, the album has sold 8 million copies and the title track remains one of her signature songs. She followed that impressive bow with a series of best-selling albums and hit singles (23 total for a combined sales of 15 million units) like the chart-topping "How Do I Live," the longest running single on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Can't Fight the Moonlight," one of four songs Rimes contributed to the multi-platinum soundtrack album Coyote Ugly. "Can't Fight the Moonlight" spent three weeks on Airplay Monitor's Top 40 Mainstream chart, peaking at #8, and 42 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart, peaking at #11. The album spent more than 100 weeks on Billboard's pop and country album charts, peaking at #1 and #10 respectively on Billboard's Top Country Album and Top 200 Album charts. LeAnn Rimes is finally her own woman. For someone who is already a pop superstar, this still-young artist's career is just getting started.
