Synopsis Music Reviews
Vitamin C took a leaf from the Sugar Ray playbook, calling in dance-hall royalty (in this case Lady Saw) to add some spice to the single "Smile." Colleen Fitzpatrick, formerly of modern rockers Eve's Plum, makes sure we know her smarts didn't run out there; her Madonna-influenced album also has room for a canny dance-pop version of Split Enz's "I Got You," a Feminism 101 essay assignment for junior-high students ("Girls Against Boys"), and a Clash sample on "Fear of Flying." Unfortunately, these good ideas are failed by their execution--most of the songwriting and tracks are catchy but not enough to truly lift the record off the ground--and Fitzpatrick's slight air of superiority to the radio-driven marketplace she's courting makes the record ultimately unfun. A lesson in sincere manipulation wouldn't hurt; a few listens to Best of Blondie might help. --Rickey Wright

This CD has the Song Graduation... one of the top High School Graduation theme songs of all-time!

Stupid Name, But Excellent CD

"Unfortunately, Vitamin C has been compared to such "scums of the earth" as the Spice Girls, but thankfully her cd is much better than any of those novelty acts. Here's a rundown of the songs: 1. SMILE - This song has a great beat and has a reggae feel to it. 2. TURN ON ME - I love this song! It shifts from fast, beating choruses, to soft verses. 3. ME, MYSELF AND I - A sample of a song by (someone? I don't know). Anyways, another uptempo song with a good beat. 4. UNHAPPY ANNIVERSARY - The first ballad on the album, this song is really nice. 5. NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL - A cool song which empowers Vitamin C. It's got a cool rap part by Vitamin C herself. 6. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO - Another empowerment song, this time for anyone, kind of lame, but good. 7. GIRLS AGAINST BOYS - Super lame and funny lyrics ("I'm gonna burn my boxers") but the song is awesome. Very noisy and loud with funny foreign people in the background. 8. I GOT YOU - I love this song! This is definitely my favorite song. But, it's a cover, so Vitamin C didn't even write it! Still, it is the best song and has a real pop/rock/dance feel to it. 9. MONEY - An upbeat song (they practically all are). I think it's kind of stupid. It's got really cheesy background vocals on it. Still, a good song. 10. ABOUT LAST NIGHT - A hilarious song about confessing the need to "do it again". It always makes me laugh. 11. FEAR OF FLYING - A cool upbeat song with awesome beats. The verses are spoken so it's kind of different. 12. GRADUATION (FRIENDS FOREVER) - A great song. My second favorite. It's really sentimental and is really sad (in a good way). The lyrics are very poignant to anyone about to graduate."

"Let's go through the tracks:1. Smile~ This is the song I bought the album for. It has a great message, and the ENHANCED CD section on your computer has this video, which is pretty cool. You appreciate the song after seeing it.2. Turn Me On~ This is a cool song! I love it when the chorus comes on and it jumps from quiet music and calm singing, to banging away, belting out the lyrics.3. Me, Myself, and I~ Way cool song, I love it when the guy goes "Please, baby, please". It is really, really good. The music is pretty cool too. I like the clapping in the beginning.4. Unhappy Aniversary~ These lyrics blew me away. "You ask me- how am I, well I'm still standing, aren't I?" Such a slow and sad song. Flows well too.5. Not That Kind Of Girl~ I love this! Funky. My favorite part is where she goes "Oh, Oh, I'm not that kind of girl" This really shows how well she can write songs. I mean, who elso would sing a song that goes... "...[Won't] take your wallet for it's big size..."6. Do What You Want To Do~ I love the guy singing in the background! THis also has a good message in it. Great lyrics and great music= great song.7. Girls Against Boys~ Weird lyrics, but great beat and tune.8. I Got You~ Similar to "Turn Me On", but cooler. Fimiliar chorus tune, but it's probably only because its a great song. Again, the lyrics are stellar.9. Money~ This song is so true, it's funny! 'Money' is right up there with my favorite songs on this album.10. About Last Night~ the music is great in this. The lyrics are cool too... but I'm still wondering about what some of them REALLY mean.11. Fear Of Flying~ I don't really care for this song.12. Graduation~ Oh my God! This is my all time FAVORITE song! I think its so sad. The lyrics are better than the best. I can't stress enough, but this song is better than the radio version... no talking, more verses, and longer. GRADUATION is BREATHTAKING! Vitamin C's album is so good, it sounds almost like she has been writing forever, and she is perfect at that and singing. I so want to see her in concert! PEACE, y'all! :-)"
