“The ueen of pop-country unleashes a boldly-reflective, shimmering collection of evocative confessionals, updated empowerment anthems and some of her gutsiest songwriting to-date.” – Popcrush
“Sheer audacity makes Now one of the year’s most daring releases on the pop spectrum. Warmth and perseverance make it one of the best.” – Vulture
“Shania Twain’s Now sounds so much larger than most pop event records in 2017, so much darker and heavier and rifer with surprises than anything Twain’s ever done.” – Billboard
“She’s back again after a 15-year break still pushing the boundaries of the genre with her mix of pop, country, dance and rock music… The new songs still carry the feminine strength and optimism she’s always espoused, with a bit more vulnerability. Twain has persevered through a lot of personal hardships and this album’s survival message shows she’s not going let anything stop her.” – Associated Press
“Dramatic and diverse, it’s an album about rebuilding a career and a broken heart, shot through with girl power, showbiz schmaltz and rare vulnerability.” – Rolling Stone
““Now” shows Twain to still be a dynamic force” – ABC News
“Twain has been through a lot over the years, and the blunt, weathered qualities of her voice only make her anthems about survival more affecting and more potent” – Entertainment Weekly.
