Album Review

Pro-Social Content

Numerous tracks express love, warmth and long-term commitment (The Rolling Stones’ “Honest I Do,” Sheryl Crow’s “In Need” and the Bob Seger/Martina McBride duet “Chances Are”). A hopeful Lyle Lovett urges hurting people to “Smile.” On “To Get Me to You,” Lila McCann looks back at hard times as stepping stones to a positive present. Bryan Adams lists things people tend to do when they’re in love, including taking risks and making sacrifices (“When You Love Someone”).Two versions of “To Make You Feel My Love” (one by Garth Brooks, another by Trisha Yearwood) tell the same sweetly desperate tale of radical affection and commitment.

Summary Advisory

This soundtrack features heartening songs by 13 artists. While a few contributors have recorded questionable material in the past, they avoid it here. Hope Floats is a terrific collection for the entire family.
