This is one gorgeous CD that starts slowly and keeps building momentum so that the final product feels like a nice little journey in which you are being led by one of the sweetest and must powerful voices on this earth. Although originally released in 2003, Wynonna indicates in the insert that she'd been working on this release since 2000 and almost gave up as she felt that nothing was feeling quite right. I hope that she is resting comfortably as this may be her best release since she went solo.

Not surprisingly "What The World Needs Now" is filled with songs about not giving up and finding salvation through love and faith. The first single "What the World Needs Now" has Wynonna sounding like a goddess with a contagious banjo and fiddle side by side with popping drums and electric guitars. She has rarely sounded more in control of her voice than she does here. "Heaven Help Me" is an emotional plea with a piano and a sweeping strings arrangement that lifts this song above being just music. This song is pure Wynonna. "It All Come Down To Love" takes on politics, telemarketing, trash talking tv evangelists and talk-show hosts. It sounds great and again the answer to all these evils comes from love. It may sound cheesy and single-minded to make such a blanket statement, but at the core not even the biggest cynic can take away Wynonna's desire that her faith and love will carry her through life's punches. "Flies on the Butter (You Can't Go Home Again)," has Wynonna singing with Naomi as they take a nostalgic look at childhood in general. It's a wonderful ballad and should remind those who only know Wynonna through her solo work that this mother and daughter harmonized like few in the business.

I love Wynonna and belong to her fan club. Wy did the Nashville thing and had a couple good years then in other albums Wy recorded what she wanted and those albums rock. If you haven't exposed yourself to Wy's older stuff you really should. Anyways when Wy recorded what she wanted she got little to no airplay. Now that she is doing what Nashville wants and everybody is on the band wagon again. However, as stated in another review by someone else Wy is not Martina Mc Bride, Faith Hill or Shania so Wy doesn't get the true airplay she deserves. Country music may not be so male dominanted these days but now if your a woman you have to have "the look" and I feel so sad for artist's like WY and Terri Clark who don't fit the mold of what country music wants. Let your ears be the decision maker. Wy has a AWESOME voice and can belt out a tune. To date I love all of Wy's stuff my only objection was her remake of "I wanna know what love is" I have always hated the song and these feelings are for the song itself not the artist. Expand your horizions and check out Wy previous cd's as well. This cd is good my favorite track is "Flies on The Butter" I just think Wy should have done what she wanted to not what the men of Nashville said she should put out.

In the press promoting this album, Wynonna has talked about how hard the album was to make. Originally she was working on a soul record, which was shelved, and she decided to give Nashville a try again. She often said how it was hard to find the right songs, since the good ones were going to the popular artists in Nashville. What she delivers is a fairly solid, safe album. To call Wynonna country anyway is unfair anyway, since she has always lended to various other genres. She tries to fit in Nashville's mold on this album though, and it's not really country, but a mix of today's country in Nashville and Wynonna's own brand of it.
The title track was a top 20 hit...but failed to hit the top 10 unfortunately. The second single is the excellent powerhouse ballad "Heaven Help Me", but was not a hit (the video was released way too late after the single was released). She is joined by mama Naomi on the Judds duet "Flies On The Butter", which was previously recorded by Lari White. She does a decent cover of Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is" (which in my opinion has been covered way too much anyway). She shows her soft side on ballads like "Sometimes I Feel Like Elvis", or inspiring numbers like "Your Day Will Come" and "I Will Be".
Overall it's a solid album...but clearly trying to fit into Nashville's narrow minded view of what country should be, did not work for her. The album isn't bad, but next time she should not conform and make an album of music that she wants to, instead of trying to make what might be successful.

With the possible exception of her first two albums, Wynonna Judd's solo output has been spotty and inconsistent at best, her records often containing a few gems among alot of average filler and way too many disparate styles of music that ultimately leave the most patient listener jarred and frustrated. That said, her sixth solo turn WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE is easily her most cohesive set since 1993's TELL MY WHY, thanks in large part to the fact that the singer reigns in that rocker's growl she so loves to display and instead offers up a album's worth of gorgeously measured vocal performances. Granted, this is due to the fact the Judd sticks mighty close to the musical "middle of the road"--lots of power ballads and midtempo anthems that show off her vocal work far better than past songs like "When Love Starts Talkin'" and "Rock Bottom". Among the highlights here,"Sometimes I Feel Like Elvis" is the standout, though it gets some solid competition in the forms of "I Will Be", "Flies On The Butter"(featuring first-rate harmony work from mother Naomi Judd), and a surprisingly good cover of Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is". She may not be the chart powerhouse she once was, but after listening to say, Faith Hill's latest tired attempt at pop superstardom, you'll wonder why she isn't.
