CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

This is a record bursting with indecision and excess, but that excess is revealing; we're shown more of Shania's emotion than ever here. It's enough to make Now one of the best pop albums of the year.

Entertainment Weekly
Those who would disparage her for not sounding like the “old Shania” are missing the point of this album — and with songs this good, they’re missing out, too.
70
Rolling Stone
Shania is taking inspiration from the expansively chaotic sound of contemporary country pop – a sound she helped to shape in the first place.
66
Pitchfork

Shania Twain’s fifth studio album and first in 15 years feels courageous. Her songs are modern and pleasant but the specter of her life’s temporary collapse hangs over its best tracks.

60
The Guardian
Now is a strong comeback that plays to Twain’s strengths, but it could have done with some more of her feisty, Brad Pitt-skewering self, and fewer inspirational metaphors.
50
AllMusic

Now feels fussy, as if every element was triple-guessed because the pressure to have a triumphant comeback was too great.

50
Consequence of Sound
Without the big, chewy hooks, the songs tend to bleed together indistinguishably in hindsight.
20
Drowned in Sound
Now isn't going to fool anyone, except maybe the 'yaaass queen' crowd and grandparent-pandering radio. What was promised to be Twain's 'very, very pure' album is anything but.
20
Clash
The songs are forgettable odes to familiar topics - home, heartbreak, dusting yourself off and picking yourself back up - that wouldn’t get a second glance if they’d been penned by someone less famous.

You just waited 15 years to write this album!!!, funny 'cuz it's the same rate i was thinkin' of =)))
my top 3 songs are:
1- I'm Alright
2- Soldier
3- N/A
srsly 12 songs i couldn't find 3 tracks to love XD, i just liked I'm Alright and may be Soldier a little bit, rather than that i found the other 10 songs are fuckin' forgettable as shit.
why i'm seeing some people calling her queen !!, what kind of a queen is she XD.

It's complete uninspired trash. She should have stayed in retirement.
