Come On Over was such a forward-sounding album that by the time the eleventh track played, it sounded like a dated throwback.
“Honey, I’m Home” is a paint-by-numbers rewrite of the groundbreaking “Any Man of Mine”, deliberately written to placate the fans who discovered her through that song.
That isn’t speculation, mind you. Twain stated it outright when the album was released.
It isn’t a bad record, by any means. I’d make the case that it’s actually funnier and a bit catchier than “Any Man of Mine.” But like any sequel, no amount of improvement can recreate the impact of the original.
