One of the best of the 90's
Jim M. | Springfield MA | 06/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eve's Plum's CHERRY ALIVE is one of the best, forgotten CD's of the 90's. It stands as one of the finest examples of "alternapop".

Lead singer Colleen Fitzpatrick began her career as an actress, appearing in John Waters film HAIRSPRAY, before becoming part of the group. This was the groups second album (their previous CD ENVY wasn't as good as this one).

The group would have a big MTV and radio hit with "Jesus Loves You (but not as much as I do)". As good a single as that song was, it isn't even the best of the CD.

The CD is filled with terrific songs, "Wishing the Day Away", the title track "Cherry Alive" which had a brief run on the radio, "Lipstuck" (probably the funniest and catchiest song ever written about someone mistaking a glue stick for lipstick), and several others.

Unfortunately, the album didn't make as big as an impact as they should have. Soon after the release of this CD, Colleen would go on her own, changing her name and image, and becoming "Vitamin C". It was a rather big shock to the alternative music scene. I'm still trying to get over it.

But, CHERRY ALIVE still sounds great. One of the best CDs of the 90's that you have probably never heard.
This is the Eve's Plum CD to get

"I had 'Envy' for a long time and liked it, but this one is way better. Unlike 'Envy', the songs don't tend to drag on a bit longer than they should. I like every song on it but particularly 'Fairy Princess', 'Lipstuck', and 'Beautiful'."
Very fun, very very good power pop from the PLUMbers!

"A much more sunnier, happier release than the previous "Envy", Cherry Alive was another album that should have been big when alternative music was in it's heyday. Cherry Alive is a celebration of silly teen crushes backed by rousing guitar work and snappy arrangements. Coleen Fitzpatrick's wispy, sexy vocals help one recall every particular girl you have ever had a crush on, singing the lyrics to your favorite love song, directly to you, in your adolescent fantasies. Given the song titles such as "Cherry Alive", "I Want You Bad" and lyrics such as "I'll bring you to your knees" only adds fuel to the erotic fire. Check out "Jesus Loves You(But not as much as I do!) "Someone to tell Me I'm Wrong" and "Serious Stuff" as standout tracks, although every song has value. If this is available new or used on Amazon, buy it now! It is a steal."
