Gotta Tell You [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Like many talented teenage pop singers, Samantha Mumba was initially promoted on the strength of her talent -- as in, "Isn't she much more talented than any other singer of her age?" It is true that Mumba is a fine singer, with a voice that sounds richer than most teen singers, and her material on her debut Gotta Tell You isn't strictly flimsy teen pop. It's more soulful and pretty well-constructed, sultry without veering into Lolita territory. In short, this is a fine product, a sterling example of immaculately crafted dance-pop and radio-ready ballads. If there's any problem, it's that, apart from "Body II Body," which weirdly appropriates David Bowie's icy ...

Like many talented teenage pop singers, Samantha Mumba was initially promoted on the strength of her talent -- as in, "Isn't she much more talented than any other singer of her age?" It is true that Mumba is a fine singer, with a voice that sounds richer than most teen singers, and her material on her debut Gotta Tell You isn't strictly flimsy teen pop. It's more soulful and pretty well-constructed, sultry without veering into Lolita territory. In short, this is a fine product, a sterling example of immaculately crafted dance-pop and radio-ready ballads. If there's any problem, it's that, apart from "Body II Body," which weirdly appropriates David Bowie's icy "Ashes to Ashes" for a seduction number, none of this is particularly memorable without repeated spins. After those plays, it still seems like Gotta Tell You is a little too heavy on filler -- the singles, like "Gotta Tell You" and "Baby, Come Over (This Is Our Night)" are what stand out, along with the slow-burning closer, "Lately" -- but it's still better crafted than much teen pop, and it's delivered with conviction by Mumba. It's not a stunner, but it's satisfying on its own (albeit ephemeral) terms, and it sets her up well for greater things. [The 2001 British re-release includes three bonus tracks: "Stand by Your Side," "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," and a remix of "Gotta Tell You."]
