  1. Playing armchair producer and doing comparison tests is so entertaining, the cumulative package is greater than the sum of its parts.

    Twain's songs are never deep, but they have hooks tattooed on their skin and harmonies that glow like bar lights. [#13, p.88]
  3. Up! would be a knockout even if it were limited to its one disc of country music.... But the second, relentlessly kinetic pop disc is a revelation.
  4. [It's] quintessential Shania, light as vapor, sweet as sugar, rendered with personality and undeniable charisma.

I find the album delightfully charming and there is joy in sharing the apparant love she has for her art. Full Review »
