This review is from: Up! [International Version] (Audio CD)
Let's face it, Shania was always bound for pop, and why not. Her first country albums were good, the originally released Come on Over had the country sound and was pop-ified for the rest of Europe eventually. She has the voice, the look and John "Mutt" Lange, how could she go wrong? This album is bursting with great songs, a good mix of ballads and feisty, feel-good songs. Sure enough,the lyrics don't take themselves seriously, this album is mainly about fun."Gonna Getcha Good" is a brilliant first single, it's sexy, it's catchy, it's danceable. "Up","I'm not in the mood to say no""C'est la vie"(very Abba!)"Nah!"What a way to be""In my Car" are examples of girl-power cheer-up crackers. And I can't help but love "Waiter, bring me water"'s wink at Def Leppard.
However, happy as I am with"Up",I'm severely disappointed that Europe didn't get the country "green" CD -there are many people who love country and have enjoyed Shania's first albums.Why are we landed with this diabolical Bollywood "blue" CD? I've had to order a second copy from the States, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
But with so many fantastic songs,all is forgiven. A definite must-buy.
