A special note
on Shania Twain:
We have no problem with Ms Twain. Indeed, her album Up! does
its job admirably, and much of Come
On Over is entirely without fault... these being the limits of
our familiarity with her oeuvre. However, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT that you
cut the first few seconds of intro from many of the tracks, e.g., "Let's
Go" (from I'm Gonna Get You Good), "Here it comes"
(Ain't No Particular Way), "Kick it" (I'm Holding
On To Love), "Here we go, yeah" (Whatever You Do! Don't!,
incidentally a great! song!), "Cool" (which sounds particularly
lame for some reason on the marvelous Don't Be Stupid). In her
defense, "Let's go girls" (Man! I Feel Like A Woman!)
is contextually appropriate. Occasionally we even find ourselves mouthing

is strongly advised that you immediately dispose of the bonus CD. It was
a nice idea to provide an entire alternative album, but you will suffer

to be 'Necessary as air is for breathing and sunlight for seeing; henceforth
and for all time they shall be free to anyone who requests them'
