The Woman In Me is the second studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain, originally released in February 1995 via Mercury Records.

Sometimes, all it takes for a singer to break it big is to have the right collaborator and nowhere is that truth more evident than with Shania Twain. After years of independent local releases and demo records, she released an OK major-label debut on Mercury in 1993 - a record that was perfectly fine but not all that memorable. Not long after that, her path crossed with Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the producer behind some of the greatest albums in hard rock history. Unlikely a combination as it seemed they turned out to be expertly matched collaborators.

Together, they totally reworked Twain, turning her into a bold, brassy, sexy, sassy modern woman, singing songs that play like tongue-in-cheek empowerment anthems even when they're about heartbreak. She demands that "Any man of mine/better walk the line," tells a poor sap that "(If You're Not In It For Love) I'm Outta Here!" and when she confronts her lover asking "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" it sounds like a threat, not a lament.

All these songs are painted in big, broad strokes and Lange uses all his arena-filling tricks giving them steady rhythms and melodic hooks that are crushed only by the mammoth choruses which drill their way into permanent memory upon the first listen. The ballads like the title song are all excellent, but even more impressive on "No One Needs To Know," a swinging slice of neo- Bakersfield country so good you'd swear that Dwight Yoakam is singing harmony.

The Woman In Me is surely pop influenced, but it’s not pushed too far, for no matter how many rock tricks are in the production or how poppy the tunes are, they still feel like country songs, especially on "Any Man Of Mine" and "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" anthems for the post-"Boot Scootin' Boogie" era, when country slowly, steadily became the sound of middle-American adult pop.

Although this isn't pure country, it is country in how it sounds and feels, particularly in how it captures the stance and attitude of the modern woman, a part Twain plays to the hilt. It's so exquisitely crafted from the songs to the sound that it's not only an instant pleasure, it's a sustaining one.

Check out the tracks: Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”; “Any Man Of Mine” and “No One Needs To Know”.
