Cyndi Thomson -- maybe not a name remembered right away, but she did make
Country music history by having ONE #1 song, in 2001 -- "What I Really Meant
To Say." That song, from her album My World, gets the nod of
approval for this week's WSVNRadio Album Pick of the Week.
The title track begins this album, and this song comes across having more
of a Pop and Country style. As it starts, the music has a somewhat Alanis
Morrisette style, yet Cyndi's voice brings the Country style, likewise the
song's chorus. "I Always Liked That Best" has her voice almost sounding
like Faith Hill or maybe even Shania Twain (more like Faith's). Yet, this song
does have the updated Country sound. Her #1, "What I Really Meant To Say"
has the updated Country sound, likewise Faith Hill's more recent style.
"Things I Would Do" has the Pop/Country style again, as the verses
have the pop style (and a different sound for Cyndi's voice), and the chorus
definitely has the Country style. "If You Could Only See" is a ballad,
and this song does well for both Cyndi's voice and musically. This song could
be compared to Shania; this song is very well done. "I'm Gone" is
another Shania-styled upbeat song, "If You Were Mine" is a pleasant,
nice, middle-of-the-road song, likewise "Hope You're Doing Fine."
The Pop/Country mix appears again on "There Goes The Boy," and
"But I Want To." "I'll Be Seeing You" is another great ballad, just
All of the songs were co-written by Thomson, with the exception of 3:
"I'm Gone, "Hope You're Doing Fine," and "There Goes The Boy."
[It's always a treat to see the songwriter(s) of each song, likewise lyrics in
the liner notes/booklet of the CD.]
My World is a good album, as many of the songs are compared to Faith
Hill and Shania Twain. Being compared to these two lovely ladies is a good
compliment, although she may not have as many #1's as the two, (album[s] and
songs; she has yet to release another album, since 2001). Her music is
enjoyable to listen to, likewise she has all the ingredients as Faith &
Shania -- Pop/Country styles, true Country sound, and ballads that definitely
will turn heads and be worth listening to.
