4.0 out of 5 stars Arena's big step out of ballad territory 28 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For what it is worth, being compared to Celine Dion wasn't a bad comparison, it was just a bad career move. After the debalacle that surrounded Arena's ballad heavy 'In Deep,' she chose (and wisely) to make an album that is familiar to her fans yet entirely different from the rest of her discography. And the result is this superb record that continues to grow spin after spin. The production values are powerful, but not to the point where it would drown out Arena's voice. In fact, this record will sound a bt strange upon the first listen, as one usually hears thin voices or Madonna and Kylie overtop of electronic work, but this is not the case here. This is a brave and enjoyable record that has grit and a character that would make her peers envious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Me- Tina Arena 4 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
All I can say is BUY this album. Since purchasing it I have played it many many times and with each spin it just gets better. The tracks sound wonderful, the production is fanatstic and Tina's voice spellbinding. From uptempo tracks to the fantastic balled 'You Made Me Find Myself' she does not put a foot wrong. Cerainly the best album I have bought in a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina's most varied album to date 10 Dec 2001
Format:Audio CD
I am sure most Tina Arena fans love Tina for a combination of her awesome vocal range and her underrated songwriting ability. This album will surprise many who have pidgeon-holed her as a power balladeer. As well as the up-tempo first two singles "Soul Mate#9" and "Dare you to be Happy" the album takes in many musical styles. There are forays into electronica with "Symphony Of Life" and "Tangled". There is only one ballad on this album but boy is it a spine tingler. Dealing with the issue of the break up of her marriage "You made me find myself" is Tina's most emotive ballad yet. I urge any fan of quality pop/adult contemporary music to buy this album. All eleven songs are excellent with no weak tracks at all. I am sure Tina's existing fans will be happy with her expanding musical styles and hopefully she'll pick up some news fans en route. Album of the year!!

5.0 out of 5 stars For fans of intelligent pop 24 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have often been disappointed by Tina Arena's choice of material, which never did her voice any justice. With the exception of the dynamic "I Want To Spend My Lifetime Loving You" from The Mask of Zorro, and Lloyd Webber's "Whistle Down The Wind", the rest of her last album, In Deep, felt like she'd swum out too far and was in danger of drowning.
However the new album, Just Me, is bound to stun her detractors to silence. Here, the music is an inspired blend of lush strings and electronica, dance pop and balladry that showcases one of Pop's finest and most underrated talents of the past decade. Tracks like the ambient "God Only Knows" (which bears resemblance to Massive Attack's 'Teardrop'), the philosophical "Symphony Of Life", the upbeat "If You Ever" and the middle-eastern flavoured "Tangled", are all stand-out tracks that make this such a stunning ablum. It is obvious that Arena is experimenting with more adventurous sounds on this album, and thus it is her most eclectic to date. If you like the power and technique behind Celine Dion's voice and the more 'enlightened' style Madonna has adopted on her most recent albums, then I highly recommend this collection. Tina Arena brings a rawness and sincerity to her music that few of her contemporaries possess.
A word of advice: if you are able to get your hands on the import version with three bonus tracks in French, it's well worth the effort!
Who knows, maybe this time she'll gain the recognition she greatly deserves, and repeat the success she had with "Chains", back in 1994.

3.0 out of 5 stars Follow up to In deep 17 May 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is quite a different album to her previous releases but I was still pleasantly surprised. Included are the three Australian singles, "Dare you to be happy", "Soul mate #9" and "Symphony of life". The style on this album is somewhat different to the last album and there's a more uptempo feel to many of the songs. Although she does revisit old ground by including a couple of ballads on here, many of the songs lack the staying power of her previous hits. Overall, this isn't a bad album but its not one of her best.
