Fif­teen years af­ter her last al­bum, the queen of coun­try-pop is back. Now presents a slightly more melan­choly

Sha­nia than you might re­mem­ber from her 1997 block­buster Come On Over. “Still can’t be­lieve he’d leave me, to love her,” she sings on Poor Me, pre­sum­ably ref­er­enc­ing the ex-hus­band (and for­mer mu­si­cal col­lab­o­ra­tor) who cheated on her with a close friend. But her song­writ­ing re­mains as re­lat­able and hook-filled as ever: Life’s About to Get Good, Swing­ing with my Eyes Closed and We Got Some­thing they Don’t are coun­try bops worth dig­ging out your sparkly cow­boy hat for.
