On Up!, superstar Shania Twain presents her first new material in five years to a country-pop populace that seems almost psychotically split between bluegrass 'n' roots rediscovery and bold, rock-styled productions that are "country" in name only. Only Shania Twain, it seems, can hold the two together. Fittingly, Up!'s 19 songs appear on both a "Green" CD of country arrangements and a "Red" CD with Twain's vocals dropped into pop arrangements, for those who prefer their Shania sans fiddles and banjos. The dual-disc arrangement allows Twain and her husband-producer, Robert John "Mutt" Lange, to indulge their rock tendencies and infuse the arrangements behind her soaring vocals with metal-edged guitars and hard-hitting rhythms. No matter what the style, it's futile to resist: Shania's voluptuous charms are as much aural as visual, and when Lange backs her come-hither cooings with a fierce rhythm track, it silences the argument about fiddles versus synths -- better just to melt with her. Twain prefers upbeat, positive songs, and Up! is loaded with 'em, from the groove-heavy hit single "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!" to a cautionary, dramatic testimonial to self-assertiveness, "Juanita." On the ballad side, Twain is positively captivating in the urgency she brings to her vows of everlasting love in "Forever and for Always," which is most effective in the pop version that establishes an evocative ambience with the synth washes and a drum program. For even more Shania, check out the "Blue" mixes on her web site, which she describes in her liner notes as "more rhythmic with an Eastern influence." With Up!, Shania Twain offers enough lofty songs to raise the spirits of all her fans, country cosmopolitans and city slickers alike.

I absolutely loved it. With a twist of pop this really keeps you entertained.

After reading some of the other online reviews, I decided I needed to write one of my own. I think that this Shania album was great! It is one of her best. I loved her use of pop on these CDs. Just because her music is in the country category does not mean it has to have the classic sound of guitars in her songs. I admire Shania for following her heart and writing her own songs on all of her albums, and this one really shows her true side. Any true Shania fan would know that when Shania first entered the music business, she was originally going to go pop. However, after that didn't work out, she went country. I think it's great that she is using her same pop backround in her new country CD's. And besides, it's not hard-core...it's like a mix between pop and country, which I really love the sound of. I also love her idea of two CD's: A red one for pop and a green one for country. Shania did a really good job on this CD. If you don't like it, don't listen to it, but don't whine about it to everyone else. However, in my opinion, this CD is totally fabulous! I strongly recommend this CD! It was totally worth the money!

Shania Twain is an amazing singer. She should come to Fargo ND, or Jamestown ND. Her songs are amazing.

I have mixed feelings about this CD, it is not as good as Come On Over. But okay. There is maybe 3or4 songs on there that are okay.

i'm a big shania fan,but she sells herself short on this cd,, its a complete repeat of her last album with not the same quality, i'm very dissappointed, i was hoping her music would have grown up a bit,,, doesnt have to be techno popy to be UP!

This CD is very cool. Shania shows singing freely, and haveing fun doing it. Without using bad/curse words she expresses herself freely. Her songs have some awfly wierd names, but that shows that she doesn't care what others think. She is REAL countrey, not that other corney stuff. And by what the world sees, she is going Up! the charts!

This Double CD, 19 songs each, is Pure Shania Material. No other artist can produce 4 consecutive records with virtually every song being a potential Hit, if given the Radio time exposure. UP! Starts out showing a fresh new style. Attractive to a wide age group that the whole family will accept. And true to the Title, each song goes up in desirable listening and retro's back to her lovely voice in all it's varieties and lyrics that have inspired and encouraged us before. Definitely a MUST HAVE in every CD collection along with NORAH JONES -Come Away With Me. Not a similar artistic style as Shania, but Definitely as Talented in Voice and Listening ability. You WILL literally Play this CD over and over and over and Never tire of it's silky smooth purity. 5 stars for Both these Artist's.

I have been wondering what Shania has been up to since Come On Over came out. That was an awesome cd, and I believe UP! is just as good if not better...okay I will be honest it's awesome and was worth the wait. I love how there are two different versions of the cd, I love her writing style and how its true to her. I love the song "I Ain't Goin Down" and "Nah!" there are some really fun songs and not all of them our upbeat like it seemed to be on the "Come On Over" cd but I love it all.

On this album are the culminations of Robert john lange's current endeavors.... This guy is an awesome writer...and his wife is beautiful....plus, she's turning out to be a suprisingly good singer! They are a powerful pair. It's strange to hear the songs that are clearly inspired from mutt's side versus the songs leaning towards shania's stuff. All in all i love this album because of mutt's genius, uplifting influence and shania's voice:) thx p.s. Indian food rocks.

This is a great album. What an original concept. I am not into country, but I love both cds. Shania is truly talented! She a put a lot of work into this album and it shows. There are a lot of songs I can relate too. I got it this morning and can't stop listening to it. I just wish the blue album was marketed to the U.S. My favorite songs are Up, She's Not A Pretty Face, and Nah! Shania is a truly gifted singer and songwriter. I gonna buy Come On Over.

The forth release from Shania is better than "Come On Over" and I didn't think that was possible. It contains 19 songs totalling 71+ minutes of music and it has both a country disc and a rock disc in the package, and they each have all 19 songs on them. She covers a variety of topics and delivers the Vocals like no one else can, I won't take the space to review each song but there is something to love for everyone. My favorites right now; "Forever and for Always","It Only Hurts When I'm Breathing", "I'm Jealous", "When You Kiss Me", and "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!". ENJOY!! Note: If you are looking for some kind of "new" Shania sound, or a deep "down home" country style, this isn't the place to look. Shania is Shania and she hasn't been "Down Home" since she met and married "Mutt" Lange.

The CD is extremely listenable, for all of us who like pop music. The album's chord progressions, sing-along lyrics, and prounounced guitar emphasis make it very easy to LIKE. But to LOVE? As Shania herself would say: ".....nah!" It's a very pale imititation of the passion and orginality found in 1997's "Come On Over." While the production values are very high (kudos to Mutt Lange & company) and it'll no doubt sell a ton, Shania appears to have lost her novelty. Her "style" seems to have developed along the lines of "cute", not "character-filled"....and certainly not "country."

I am not into the heartbreaking Country tunes of yesteryear, Shania has set the stage and standard for country music in the 21st century.

i LOVE this CD. i'm not a huge country in fact i hate it but i love Shinah Twain. This CD has the perfect blend of country and pop that makes it enjoylable. I also like the upbeat feel of the CD. It makes you get in a good mood and makes me feel better. I recomend this CD for anyone that likes fun happy music whith a kewl twist.

Shania is exceptional in every aspect of the word. She has proven that a talented, sassy song-writer and singer can make it in country music. I was, however, a bit disappointed with this CD. I can't really put my finger on it, but her last album was somehow better. And the last album produced so many hit singles; I don't see 'Up' being the block-buster the last one was. That's not saying 'Up' will not sell well. Hardly! I noticed many of the songs basically sound the same. I thought that with the 5 yr absence, the album would be even better than the last. 'Up' is very good, groovy and fun, but not up to the standard of her previous work.

The new album has taken everthing that shania has ever done and crafted a beautiful yet exciting album. This cd is one that you can play at least 5 times a day. It has the variety and contrast it needs to become a success in the music world. I enjoy every song on the cd, and each day i have an obsession with a different song. If i ever had the chance to meet this incredible woman, i would simply say "you are the best there ever has been and ever will be". The cd has a very positive side. I love the title track "up", it's a song i think that anyone could relats to. All the songs are great, and anyone who believes that her music is fabricated and artificial needs to go and see her in concert. She is absoutely awsome. Manufactured is far from what her music is.

Who knew what to expect after a five-year wait. But the wait was worth it. Shania & Mutt have put out another great, feel-good mess of music--two CDs worth. I highly recommend it. After several listens to the CD (both the pop/red and country/green versions) I especially like "Juanita" "Forever and for Always" "I'm Jealous" "Thank You, Baby" and "When You Kiss Me". Can't say any of the songs are bad. "Ka-ching!" is downright cute & on the money! UP! is great ear candy from beginning to end. If you're looking for angst-ridden, deeply introspective, doom and gloom music, go look somewhere else.

Like all of her fans, I was clamoring for the new Shania CD, wondering how she would follow-up the masterful Come on Over. I was very excited when this CD was finally released and with good reason--it is a great CD!!! The entire album is full of uplifting, positive songs and is definitely "Up!" as the title promises. Shania leaves heartbreak and bad times to others and offers up a CD full of upbeat, energetic, feel-good music. The CD covers some similar territory as the phenomenal Come on Over did, but Shania expresses these themes beautifully once again. On the fantastic title track and "C'est La Vie," Shania sings about not taking life too seriously and knowing that no matter how bad things may get, they will get better just like she did on the song "Come on Over." And on the beautiful "Forever And For Always," she sings of eternal love like she did on the hit song "You're Still the One." The ballad "It Only Hurts When I'm Breathing" is not only a beautifully written song but also another example of Shania's knack for coming up with great song titles (i.e. Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?). Shania does go for some social commentary as well, singing about America's buy now-pay later love affair with credit cards on the very tongue-in-cheek "Ka-Ching!" and our obsession with being perfect on "What A Way To Wanna Be!" Up! really shows how happy Shania is in her life and that happiness comes across full force on this CD. With two versions of each song, one country and one pop, this CD will keep her fans satisfied for awhile no matter what their musical preference should be. But here is one fan who is hoping it is not another 5 years before her next CD is released.

Great new concept all songs done two ways !! As usual, great lyrics and beats. Fun songs. Great dance beats. Out of 19 songs there was only a couple I didn't love, but I have a feeling after listening to them one or two more times I will. Way to go Shania, great voice, great rythyms, great music. Loved the spanish influence on song #4!

I like the album but I really enjoyed her more as a country singer. Up had a country twist, the album's great for other types of music
