There are some majestic ballads on The Woman in Me, but the title track isn’t one of them.
Utterly devoid of the clear-eyed sentiment that would define Twain’s legendary crossover ballads, “The Woman in Me (Needs the Man in You)” is a dull, plodding affair. The verses say nothing of consequence, and while the chorus swoons reasonably, it can’t compensate for the general weakness of the rest of the song.
Great video, though.
