Product Description

Product Description

Kelly Osbourne ~ Shut Up

Amazon.co.uk

Considering that Kelly Osbourne made her name as a petulant, self-obsessed, foul-mouthed but always supremely entertaining teenage rebel on The Osbournes TV show, you'd imagine the temptation would be to translate this endearing snottiness directly into music. Thankfully and surprisingly, Shut Up doesn't chase the zeitgeist dollar with either numbing nu-metal or lightweight skate punk. Instead it goes for a brand of polished new wave that's much like the girl herself: brash but insecure, straight-talking yet sophisticated, cool but often hilarious.

The most obvious precedent is Celebrity Skin by Hole. Melodies are gum-chewingly breezy, infused with FM radio vibrancy and built on harmonies designed for cruising down to Venice Beach with the top down. The attitude is refreshingly human, with "Come Dig Me Out" actually managing a touch of poignancy and the title track embodying the album's theme, namely that Osbourne is her own person and everyone should stop messing. The girl even manages to carry the tunes (that horrific version of "Papa Don't Preach" is buried as a hidden track) with a decent amount of suss and style. It all begins to get a little too saccharine over the course of the entire album but generally this is a far more lovable and much more accomplished album than anyone would have thought possible. --Ian Watson

(..) Like I said not the best in the world but still good. To be taken with a pinch a salt, Kelly's debut is refreshing, cheery dare I say it..summer pop. Perfect for sunny days, every song except "More Than Life Itself" (...) is boopy and fun enough. The best two tracks are "Come Dig Me Out" and in my opinion "Right Here". A good thing about this album is no matter how many listens, it never seems to grow old. (...) I would recommend this album simply because it's nice and cheery. But if you are looking for an album that is all deep, dark and meaningful....look elsewhere.

Well, is Kelly's debut offering any good, you may ask? In a word: "yes". OK, so she's not got the voice of P!nk, her writings aren't as deep as Alanis Morisette, and she doesn't look as good as Avril Lavigne, but that doesn't really matter when Kelly's belting out (perhaps shouting out) songs like "Come Dig Me Out" and "Shut Up!". Other highlights of the short-but-sweet album include her cover of "Papa Don't Preach" and "Disconnected", containing the lyrics: "Sorry, boy, I've found another, and he knows me just like my mother!" Kelly's debut is funny, catchy, and an all round good album... but there's only one catch. The slushy "More Than Life Itself" is the only track she just can't get to grips with, and, after you've listened to it, you'll want to give that one a miss, but apart from that, "Shut Up!" is a pretty great album.

This is one of my favourite albums, seriously. I just love every track so much i've listened to this album again and again, and yes shes only famous cause of ozzy her dad, and? she freely admits that so does it really matter???
Everyone seems to hate her just because of this and the fact shes not the smallest women in the world (sinse when was being skinny attractive anyway??) but its her music you should listen to, which is very good, my favourite track is 'more than life itself' its so beautifull in its self, just like kelly :-) XxXxXxXxXxXx

Shut up..... I wish she would. Classic example of someone getting a recording contract based on who her parents are. Very annoying and unlikable person and no talent at all. When you see young, decent artists who have to buy their own gear, pay for all of their own costs and have to replace instruments, accessories and travel out if their own pockets and then you get untalented, useless morons like her get everything handed to her on a plate.... It's not right.
