Shane Minor is the self-titled debut album by country music artist Shane Minor. It contains the singles "Slave to the Habit", "Ordinary Love", and "I Think You're Beautiful", all of which entered the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts between 1999 and 2000. It is also Minor's only studio album.

Critical reception[edit]

Heather Phares of Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five and called it "a polished, accomplished debut from a promising talent."[1] Entertainment Weekly critic Alanna Nash wrote, "With his big, impassioned vocals and layered MOR sound, Minor could be a major before year's end," giving the album a B.[2] Jon Weisberger of Country Standard Time was less favorable, with his review calling it "about as generic as a radio-oriented country album can get."[3]
