Right out of the gate, Vulture hailed it as “a motivational, synth-laden pop-rocker with few of the country touches you’d expect from Twain, all of the glamour.”RollingStone raved, “It gradually builds to a Shania-worthy maximalist sound, a dance party of gleaming guitars and unfettered bliss.” People affirmed, “Shania Twain is baring it all with her new era of music,” and The Tennesseanproclaimed, “Country icon Shania Twain’s season in the sun continues with the release of ‘Waking Up Dreaming’.” Perhaps The TODAY Show summed it up best as “an absolute bop.”
