Burn [Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Double platinum can be a big burden for some artists to bear, but Jo Dee Messina has followed up her juggernaut-level smash It's Alright with an album that more than lives up to its incendiary title and justifies the two years Messina spent working on it. The songs consistently drive home incisive lyrical messages, and the singer's committed performances make it clear that they're coming from the heart. The fierce "Down Time" is about regrouping with a vengeance in the wake of love's departure, while "That's the Way" counsels strength and self-reliance in the face of tarnished dreams. The high-octane drive of "Dare to Dream" is the perfect complement to the song's urgent...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Double platinum can be a big burden for some artists to bear, but Jo Dee Messina has followed up her juggernaut-level smash It's Alright with an album that more than lives up to its incendiary title and justifies the two years Messina spent working on it. The songs consistently drive home incisive lyrical messages, and the singer's committed performances make it clear that they're coming from the heart. The fierce "Down Time" is about regrouping with a vengeance in the wake of love's departure, while "That's the Way" counsels strength and self-reliance in the face of tarnished dreams. The high-octane drive of "Dare to Dream" is the perfect complement to the song's urgent lyrical message to "live, love, seize the day," while the righteous title song urges the ferocious pursuit of one's dreams. Nearly every song on the album carries a self-help subtext, but Messina makes even the most shopworn catchphrases work, simply by singing each song as if it were drawn from brutal personal experience. Even the relatively quiet, thoughtful "Bring On the Rain" -- a duet with coproducer Tim McGraw -- gets edgy when Messina's defiant attititude makes it clear that she can take whatever anyone can dish out, so bring it on. It's to the producers' credit that there's a minimum of grandiosity in the album's instrumental arrangements. Like Messina's powerhouse vocals, they drive the songs' themes home with dead-bang certainty.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Co-producers Tim McGraw and Byron Gallimore struck gold on Burn, Jo Dee Messina's third offering for Curb, and her last for five solid years. The formula on her first two offerings, her self-titled debut (1996) and I'm Alright (1998), seemed to work, and the pair didn't tinker with it all that much, except for the fact that the pair could see the bend in the road where the fork between contemporary country and slick adult pop came together and they met it head on. Given the monster set of contralto pipes that Messina possesses, it didn't matter; she crossed over into the pop mainstream anyway. The hits here include the awesome "These Are the Days," written by Holly Lamar and Stephanie Bentley, which wound layers of acoustic guitars, pedal steel, and a soaring harmonica that filled the center as fiddles and mandolins colored the backdrop. Messina expressed the "never say die" philosophy in the song with hunger and verve, putting it across with conviction and even a little mischievous delight. The title track is a love song like no other she'd recorded before. Its ringing guitars and nearly urban R&B bassline carried the monochromatic melody line into deep emotional territory, and once more Messina put the song across as if she'd lived it all, asking the question "Do you want to be a soldier, for love?" with all the authority necessary to communicate it to fans. "Dare to Dream" is such a straight-up pop
ocker it's a wonder it wasn't on every Top 40 station simultaneously. The album opens with the killer single "Downtime," which defines the heart of contemporary country: its themes of determination in the face of adversity, the belief in true love as a redemptive force, and a musical backdrop that is equal parts pop, country, and the light rock that powered the 1970s. There's even a more convincing argument for rock on the set in the Roy Hurd and Templeton Thompson tune "Nothing I Can Do," which has a near thundering guitar riff in the verse. Burn is a kind of small masterpiece that never dates, despite its occasionally sugary sound and very slick production; it's a testament to the vocal prowess of Messina, who is able to convey even the most ordinary lyrics with authority. Of the recordings she issued between her debut and 2005's Delicious Surprise, Burn remains her finest moment. [This version of Burn includes a U.K. radio remix of "That's the Way" as a bonus track.]
