Shania Twain - Up! (2002) Retail CD
If you are a fan of Shania's debut album, "Come on over" and are considering buying "Up!", be prepared for a refreshing (but not dramatic) change of direction. The tracks featured on this album are slightly more pop and rock influenced than her usual modern country, but that is by no means a bad thing. On the contrary, Shania has an amazing voice that is suited to virtually every genre of music, and she proves that on this album."Up!" is an astounding collection of nineteen superb tracks with no "fillers" thrown in just for the sake of filling time, which is a real plus sign for any album. Themore… sheer brilliance of Shania's songwriting, together with her incredible voice and beautiful backing music, just blows me away. There is a lot of variety on this CD, the main attraction being Shania's trademark "girl power" lyrics against soft electric guitars and her ever-present string arrangements, which are breathtaking in themselves. The first track, "Up!", is a prime example of how rock-inspired this album is; the guitars are very prominent, but not so obvious that it moves away from the pop genre. Other tracks like this include "I'm gonna getcha good!", "What a way to wanna be!" and "In my car (I'll be the driver)", all of which are pulled off to perfection by Shania. There is a lovely Spanish feel to "Juanita", and this track encourages women to find their inner selves, so to speak. A truckload of gorgeous ballads are also included here, such as "Forever and for always", "It only hurts when I'm breathing", "When you kiss me", "I ain't goin' down" and the simply stunning "I'm jealous", my personal favourite from this album. This song really shows the strength and range of Shania's voice, and there are beautiful piano instrumentals complimenting her as she sings. Yet more styles of music are reflected in "Ka-ching!" and "Thank you baby!", certainly the two poppiest tracks of the lot. Both feature the breathtaking string arrangements that were included in most of the songs on "Come on over", and were great single choices from "Up!". By far the best lyrics are that of "She's not just a pretty face", which tells the story of a woman who does absolutely everything with her life: "She hosts a TV show, she rides the rodeo, she plays the bass in a band".In my opinion, "Up!" is even better than "Come on over", although many people will disagree as "Come on over" is the biggest selling album ever by a female solo artist, and rightly so. However, I am pleasantly amazed that Shania has managed to produce such a fantastic and versatile comeback album. "Up!" is a must for any pop fan, or any music fan for that matter.
