1. So Good - 5/5 This was the second single, excellent futuristic sounding techno dance track that is really catchy!
2. I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)- 4/5 Third single, really attitude packed track with a really catchy chorus. The video is also pretty fab set in the Bad Girls prison! "I told you never to play my new guitar.."
3. Crazy Boys - 4/5 Excellent upbeat track thats dancey and chilled out at the same time. Its yet again another catchy number simular to So Good.
4. I Will Be There - 5/5 I once read someones review that it sounded like "I Believe In You", Kylie's hit song. And they where right, This has got to be the BEST track on the album for me. its amazing. its very Autherial and very Atmospheric, the words to the song are beautiful, and the haunting beat gives you goosebumps. (in a good way!)
5. Negotiate With Love - 5/5 The first single if you dont count "Some Girls" which originally came the from Funky Dory album. This song is pure rachel its fantastic. the vocals are amazing how she changes the tone in her voice and makes it higher and higher. also the music is quite 50's style simular to a previous song "blue afternoon" which was a fans favourite from the first album.
6. It's All About Me 4/5 - Really excellent catchy song, thats got another quite grown up feel to it.
7. Secret Garden 4/5 - This is quite a sunsual and chilled out track with a catchy chorus and its pretty upbeat to. I love this song. very unique unlike any other on the album.
8. Nothing Good About This Goodbye 5/5 - Originally going to be single No4 this is a really grown up track with a very catchy chorus. And a great beat. its alittle like previous fan favourite "Breathe in, Breathe Out".
9. Some Girls - 4/5 Everyone knows this track. originally from the Funky Dory (Re-Release) album it was released for Sports Relief last year, and was one of rachels biggest hits.
10. Je M'Apelle - Rachel was quotted as saying this song is about a "French Hooker". LOL its a good song even though the lyrics are suposedly so racey. Although i can really tell to be honest.
11. Funny How 5/5 - This song is very upbeat and catchy. It will have you danceing to it if you know whats good for you!
12. Every Little Thing - 4/5 Brilliant track thats really catchy and upbeat.
13. Dumb Dumb - 4/5 This song is suposed to be about a famous dumb blonde, I wonder who that could be? A few names come to light..

i wasnt an s-club fan or even a rachel fan till i heard "negotiate with love" and bought this album on the strenght of it. It doesnt disappoint!

Every song is full of retro 80s power...its impossible to find a bad song!

the album has a very retro feel in the same way as girls aloud..the production is fantastic..the songs strong..and miss stevens sounds great!

from "so good" (one of the best tracks) to "dumb dumb" it is pure pop magic..!!!

im not sure about "i said never again" as its a bit gary glitter meets samantha fox..and a couple of the other songs go down this route but the rest of the album makes up for it.

there are so many strong tracks i wont even try and start!

POP LUXURY!!!!!

If only all pop albums were like this!No ballad rubbish, just excellent excellent pop songs.I love the Adam Ant style drums on 'I said Never Again', the cheeky Cure sample (who samples the Cure?!) on 'All About Me', the fizzy bounce of 'Some Girls'...oh its just a belter of an album with no duff tracks on it. With this album Rachel has moved well away from the dreadful Sixth-Form Musical style pop she peddled as part of S Club,and made a giant leap in terms of quality and production from her first album.It easily matches anything the sugababes and girls aloud have managed and is only outclassed by Goldfrapp.Simply Amazing.I cannot recommend this album highly enough, its that good!

Yes, Rachel may have the personality of a dishcloth and if you've heard the 3 or 4 singles that have been released from the album and didn't think much of them, you're unlikely to be in any rush to buy this album, however, you would truly be missing out on what I'm sure will become a lost electro-pop gem of an album!
The album is packed with brilliantly produced electronic pop-dance songs that are catchy as hell, and better than the majority of all the Girls Aloud songs put together. Highlights include the Kylie-esque 'So Good', the electro-balld 'Nothing Good About This Goodybe', the gorgeous uplifting 'Every Little Thing' and the Richard X produced 'Crazy Boys', and last years hit 'Some girls' is thrown in for extra measures, while 'I Will Be There', despite the rather chessy lyrics (Is it OK if I meet you in Heaven?), sounds like a distant cousin to Kylie's 'I Believe In You', only slower.
While there's a few low points, the rather messy and dull 'Secret Garden' and the boring 'Its All About Me', on the whole it's a solid album, with at least 3-4 songs which could easily be singles. I just hope the record company have a little faith in the project and chose the next single carefully after 'I Said Never Again' didn't make the Top 10, and not give up on the album.
The fact is, no matter what you think of Rachel, this is a brilliant pop album, easily the best of 2005 so far. I really can't imagine Girls Aloud releasing anything half as good (certainly not if their last 2 singles are anything to go by), and I've barely heard a negative word said about the album in all the reviews Ive read. This would have been the perfect follow up to Kylie's 'Fever', instead of the low-key and rather dire 'Body Language'. Kylie's management could do with listening to this album and taking a few tips from it!

Noone expected the solo work of any ex-S-Club 7 star to be anything more than manufactured, soulless kiddy pop, myself included.

Try and overlook the provenance of Rachel herself and the somewhat tacky album cover and you'll hear a series of gobsmacking tracks. This is pop at it's best; fun, catchy, danceable and yet doesn't sound devoid of spirit or creativity.

I bought this on the strength of the other reviews that said to keep an open mind, but I was still hesitant to believe this could be any good....but it is!

Believe the hype. This is a pop gem.

That's it, really: all great songs, production and delivery. This album is testament to the strength of a brand name. If Kylie had released this 2 years ago it would have sold by the bucketload and been hailed as the great pop album it is. Even though Rachel's vocals are a little anonymous, I'm sorry we haven't heard anything from her since, because Come And Get It is so assured it seems to promise a stellar career. Get it, it's truly great.

I'm still waiting to see pigs fly because I never thought such an INCREDIBLE album would come from the likes of Rachel Stevens. Although I was a fan of Sweet Dreams My LA Ex, I have to admit, Funky Dory was a real stinker of an album. At the time I thought that there would be no way that I would ever purchase another album from this artist. Instead, I was blown away with Rachel's musical turnaround and vivacious, fierce, and surprisingly pleasant vocals on some of the most intensely enjoyable pop songs ever crafted for a singer. If you're a fan of pop, or for that matter of good music in general, pick up this cd. It's worth every penny. Well done Miss Stevens!

From the releaseof 'Some Girls'back in 2004 we all knew that Rachel released a quirky,eighties inspired electro pop number leaving the catchiness of the single still fresh in our heads.With Come and Get It,Stevens adapts a new fuller,bolder, stronger sound with well produced pop anthems. Elements of Kylie in the ever so haughty synth lead'Crazy Boys'to the Screaming dance pop of 'Funny How'. The album takes a turn with stand out track 'I will be there' a qurky mash up of pet shop boys meet scissor sisters album track 'It can't come quickly enough' an angelic ballad played over subtle electronic riffs. Come and get it is loaded with amazing singles too from the infetctious 'Negotiate With Love' that has a huge impact when listening to the album through, to the synth soaked melodic 'So good'and the recent stormer of a tune 'I said never again. The album has no fillers and you will even find the last two tracks quite a masterpiece, especially'Every little thing' whihc sounds a lot like Blondie. Best track 'I will be there'it is different and simple but it stands out and pushes miss stevens into maturity. After that it has to be crazy boys or nothing good about this goodbye for it's melody. If you like the whole qikry pop or even if you don't this album has something quite distinctive about it.Just give this girl a chance there who else can we like jenny frost who has tempted fate by calling her single 'crash landing' or lisa scott lee' Well done rachel and if you ever need a song i have thousands that i have written for you.

Transformation complete. Rachel Stevens Version 2.0. Sure, "Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex" was something different and exciting but this new album is chocker full of huge, catchy, first-rate pop tracks. Forget Rachel Stevens: Pop Singer. This is Rachel Stevens: Artist. Unfortunately most of Rachel's fan-base just won't get these kind of electro skewered, new-wave pop cuts and it's unlikely that this superb album will elevate her to the Kylie-level stardom that she deserves. It's a shame because the album is a complete success from beginning to end and showcases a very talented young woman. So, let good press, word of mouth and the club scene push this superb set to the more sophisticated listener. As the opening track states, this album is "so good" that the chart hits so far are not even the best songs. Check out the sultry "Funny how" and the fun, Shelley Poole-written "Je m'appelle Rachel"! Other highlights include the electro bubbling, Pet Shop Boys-sounding "I will be there" and the dreamy "Secret Garden". Vocally, Rachel is on top form; sounding clear, confident and better than ever. The irresistible "Crazy boys" is strong enough to be the next single, if the Record Company will allow. A personal favourite is the delicate "It's all about me" which instrumentally sounds like a glorious throwback to the heyday of The Cure. Don't be fooled by the pretty girl cover, this album has depth and power. It's up there in the top 10 of the year. Also try out the awesome debut by Shelley Poole.
