Product Description

Product Description

Shania Twain was always going to have trouble topping Come on Over. After all, selling 34 million copies, it was the most successful album ever by a solo female artist. So this time she's really thinking big: Up! comes as a double-CD, CD1 being a 19-track "pop" album and CD2 containing "world music" versions of the same songs ("country" versions are available free on her official Web site). All of Shania's trademarks are here once more: the positivism, the feminist self-empowerment, the comic put-downs, the yearning love songs. And there's all the trademarks of her husband/producer Mutt Lange, too: the staccato Foreigner keyboards, the chugging Cars guitar, the Def Leppard stomp. With the Langes now residing in Switzerland, the "pop" version has an evident European bent. Check out the Spanish-stylings of "Juanita", the German cabaret feel of "Ka-Ching!", the Roxette-touched title track and "C'est La Vie", which sounds like Abba performing "Manic Monday". The "world music" version, meanwhile, introduces Carib clatterings and sweeping disco effects that often seem cheesy and inappropriate. Nashville purists will, naturally, weep into their bourbon, but then don't they always? The "pop" version of Up! will surely be another colossal success.

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.

As a big fan of Shania's last release, Come On Over, I was apprehensive about Up! as I was not convinced that after such a long wait it would be able to match her superb earlier album. Thankfully, I'm not disappointed.
Up! features the familiar rock/country sound that we are used to, and is full of great tracks. There are the familiar 'feel good' tunes, smooth ballads and rocking pop songs. It's a good mixture.
For the money, you also get a second CD containing reworkings of all 19 tracks on the first CD. These are supposed to be softer and more melodic, but to me they just simply seem to have an Asian theme across them all. This is not especially to my taste, but it's there if you like it. You can also download more traditional country versions of some of the tracks from Shania Twain's website, so there is quite a bit of value here.
This is great stuff and as good as Shania's previous work. If you are a fan, this purchase is a no-brainer.

Ok, you have to understand something about Shania's latest release. It comes in three colours. Red is for europe, Blue is for the more far flung countries in the world and Green is the American release.
If you buy this version you will get the Red and Blue versions. I bought this version and promplty sent it back to Amazon as I thought it was bland and wishy washy. The Blue 'World Music' was awful, flutes, pan pipes and steel drum type of stuff, it makes me shiver just to think about it. The Red European version also gave me nightmares but you need a bit of history to understand why. I first discovered Shania on honeymoon in the USA four years ago, I instantly bought 'Come on Over' out there and brought it over here to champion her cause. It was about a year later when she first broke but what did the record company do? They altered it for European audiences, or rather, they de-countrified it. It sounded awful to me and the track listing was altered so I felt quite smug that I had the real version.
Guess what?
They've done it again!!!!
The Red version to me is European Shania. Sanitised and bland with all the sass and sway removed. I would give it two stars out of five.
This morning I got the American version from these good people at Amazon. You need to pay a few pounds more to get it but believe me its worth it. For about £20 you get the Green American version and the Red Euro version, which you will never play, believe me!.
The green version is the real Shania. Sassy, cheeky and 'up'! There are no dance beats on this but drums, fiddles, banjos and guitars. Shania how Shania was made to be. It's still not as good as 'Come on Over' and at 19 tracks it's far too long, but it's much better than the other two colours...

Having enjoyed the predeccessing 'Come On Over' so much, I was worried that Up! would be an inferior record, crammed - and at 19 songs, it is crammed - with fillers. I was wrong.
This is one of those CDs where you can just push play and listen from start to finish without getting bored. Shania melds the rocky, trendy sound of pilot single 'I'm Gonna Getcha Good' with Mexican beats in Juanita, while songs such as 'Nah!' and 'Cest La Vie' retain the countrified pop feel of Come On Over. There are some cracking ballads, such as 'It Only Hurts When I'm Breathing', and coming from someone like me who normally despises balladry, that's high praise!
Most interesting on this album is its format. In a way, it's a shame that the GREEN mixes weren't included, because although the RED CD does sound much more trendy and appealing than the softer, more spangly country sound of Come On Over and presumably the GREEN CDm it does seem to me that many of the individual traits and quirks of Shania's music have been ironed out. Having heard the much more diverse, jolly sound of the GREEN 'I'm Gonna Getcha Good,' I can see that in a small way, we've missed out by not having it.
I read all sorts of reviews condemning the BLUE CD but decided to go in with an open mind. However, in this case, you don't get what you pay for. Shania claims that the BLUE CD is to 'appeal to my fans across the globe'. If this was the case, one would assume that there would be a vast range of different musical styles. 'Juanita' could have been softer and more sensual with a lilting Spanish guitar. 'I'm Gonna Getcha Good' could have been given a Swedish makeover and emerged more funky and slick. Shania could have done so much with the BLUE CD had she been more diverse.
