The challenge posed by the title of Reba McEntire's latest album, READ MY MIND, is simple enough: she wants to be a pop star! From the opening bluesy/jazz saxophone to fully blown-out orchestrations, the dynamic redhead is testing crossover waters that proved treacherous in the past when she encountered the wrath of critics and fans.
It's difficult for Reba not to be taken as country; she has a panhandle-sized Oklahoma twang, and an ache in her voice that could rattle Patsy Cline. Her vocals are clean and full of depth, and her slurred phrasing adapts to any style of music. What makes READ MY MIND country is Reba herself; recorded by Celine Dion, there would be no question the album was a pop release. Even when Reba gets down to down-home tradition, it's offset by a rousing R&B choir.
READ MY MIND is accessible. Reba's trademark note-augmentation (she rolls one note into 1,000) is under control as are her growls and hiccup-like vocal calisthenics.
The AIDS-narrative "She Thinks His Name Was John" is a triumph--understated, dramatic, compelling and stark. But then she brings the mood right back up with "Why Haven't I Heard From You," an R&B shuffle drowned in horns. Read our minds Reba, y'all crossed over.
