WHO I AM MUSIC
Okay, it's happened. Jessica Andrews, the teen sweetheart who steered clear of diva aspirations and bombastic production on her 1999 debut, Heart Shaped World, has succumbed. No, she's not dead. She's just artistically challenged, thanks to Byron Gallimore, the man who pushed Faith Hill into megawatt success. Now she's warbling for the soundtrack of Dawson's Creek (the album-closing "Show Me Heaven"), and largely mining the same musical wasteland as LeAnn Rimes. Gone is the refreshing innocence, soulfulness, and quiet charm of her first album, replaced by the manufactured emotions and aerobicised lyrics of L.A. pop. Example? How about "Uh uh, uh uh uh uh," from "I Don't Like Anyone"? That said, if generic, bouncy pop is your thing--especially when it's performed by someone who just got her driver's license--you're gonna eat this one with a big spoon. --Alanna Nash

Jessica has a superb voice that is equally effective on up-tempo songs and romantic ballads. All the songs here are originals except for an outstanding cover of Show me heaven, a song that Maria McKee (originally the lead singer of Lone Justice) had a UK number one hit with.
Although she didn't write or co-write the title track, I'm assuming that the writers knew Jessica reasonably well as it sounds like an autobiographical song. Jessica had a hand in writing one of the songs (Good friend to me, about a man who wants too much too soon).
Jessica's future in country music is uncertain but I, for one, hope that she makes a comeback and she's certainly young enough to so. Even if she doesn't, Jessica's first two albums (and maybe her third, which I haven't heard) are well worth a listen. I generally prefer her first album (although not by much) but this is the one that sold best, so I'm probably in the minority. You must make up your own mind.
It really is a good album; very enjoyable and some of the lyrics really make you smile, as well as the different tempo on the different tracks ....
