Various Artists

I guess the creators of this album were trying to go for the same audience as the producers of so-called 'chick' flicks are. Let it just be said that I do not know how you can say music is for one sex or the other, but anyways…these are some of Universal Music's top-selling artists (Gwen Stefani, The Black Eyed Peas, Sheryl Crow, etc.) on one CD. There is definitely a Canadian slant on it with Jully Black, Bryan Adams, Jann Arden, Molly Johnson, Matt Dusk, and Divine Brown being part of the roster. A surprise highlight for me was the Molly Johnson track "Northern Star" which is jazzy and peppy. One of my favourite songs ever, Jann Arden's "Good Mother" (a song which never fails to give me goosebumps), is also a high point. The music is all light and fun…I guess that is what makes it female. There not being any heavy sounding stuff, I mean. As far as compilations go this is definitely a decent one despite the problems I have with the marketing scheme.
