From the suggestive series of photos in the CD’s packaging to the aerobicized dance-floor workouts within, Faith Hill refuses to concede an inch of crossover dominance to Shania Twain. Except for a seductive duet with husband Tim McGraw on “Let’s Make Love” and an occasional pinch of fiddle or steel guitar, there’s little here to characterize Hill as a country artist. As pop, the results range from pretty (“Breathe,” “Love Is a Sweet Thing”) to pretty slight (“I Got My Baby,” “If My Heart Had Wings”) to borderline inane (“Bringing Out the Elvis,” the voyeuristic twist of “The Way You Love Me”). Though Hill’s version of Bruce Springsteen’s “If I Should Fall Behind” is admirably understated, too much of the album substitutes surface dazzle for emotional depth. —Don McLeese
