Album BackgroundEdit

While promoting the album, Rimes has stated that it was her return to her "roots", country music. In essence, the album has a strong theme of love, falling in love and marriage; this could be due to LeAnn's then-marriage to her back up dancer Dean Sheremet.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"This Woman" debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 with over 101,000 copies sold in its 1st week; it fell to #25 with 40,000 copies sold in its 2nd week and #40 in its 3rd week with 37,000 copies sold.

The album spent 3 weeks in top 50 and a total of 47 weeks in Billboard 200. It has received gold status. As of June 2006, it has sold over 618,000 copies in the United States.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a "B", saying: "Even at 22, LeAnn Rimes retains her creepy preternatural maturity, holding tight to the sack of weird throaty vocal tricks that made her sound grown-up at 13. But in better news, she’s done making dance-pop records (remember 2002’s Twisted Angel?). ”With You,” ”I Got It Bad,” and ”Something’s Gotta Give” are serious roll-the-windows-down country-radio fun, and on This Woman‘s dreamy ”Afraid to Fall,” she quits acting like she’s an adult and just is one…and the difference is joyfully clear."

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic wrote: "The tunes on This Woman are on a smaller, friendlier scale than those on Come On Over or Breathe, but their modesty is appealing, particularly because the melodies are sturdy and the production is polished without being too glossy. There are no knockouts here, but on a song-for-song basis, This Woman is her strongest album yet, not least because it's the record where Rimes sounds the most comfortable, where she's not yearning for pop hits or aping her idols. This is a sound and format that fits LeAnn Rimes, and with any luck she'll continue in this vein for a while -- but given her track record, it's reasonable to doubt that she will, so enjoy This Woman while it rides the country and adult pop charts."
