The Diane Warren tune and semi-R&B vocalisms should clue you in to the fact that the young Ms. Rimes is stretching the definition of "Country" on SITTIN' ON TOP OF THE WORLD, but in the late '90s Nashville scene, that's practically the norm. Considering that her previous album was a batch of "inspirational" (if not Gospel) tunes, this more secular outing could almost be considered the real followup to her kazillion-selling debut recording. As such, it represents the kind of changes that come hard and fast in the life of a teenager (which she is, even if she doesn't sound like it). Many of the songs find her moving further and further away from her Country roots in pursuit of a more pop-oriented sound, though even the least Nashville-sounding tunes here contain flashes of pedal steel and vocal twang to remind the audience of where Rimes comes from.
