Barnes & Noble - Bill Crandall
Okay, maybe she was too polite the first time around. On the cover of her self-titled 1999 debut album, Vitamin C a.k.a. Colleen Fitzpatrick -- with her straight hair and prim pose -- looked like a slightly hipper version of the parochial schoolgirl next door. And she sang songs with titles like "Smile" and "Not That Kind of Girl." Although the album drew a few raves and scored an eternal high-school anthem with "Graduation Friends Forever," up against the ever-so-saucy Christina Aguileras of the world, Vitamin C lacked a few milligrams. Prudishness will certainly not plague More. On Vitamin C's sophomore offering, the aspiring pop and film starlet you can catch her in...

Barnes & Noble - Bill Crandall
Okay, maybe she was too polite the first time around. On the cover of her self-titled 1999 debut album, Vitamin C a.k.a. Colleen Fitzpatrick -- with her straight hair and prim pose -- looked like a slightly hipper version of the parochial schoolgirl next door. And she sang songs with titles like "Smile" and "Not That Kind of Girl." Although the album drew a few raves and scored an eternal high-school anthem with "Graduation Friends Forever," up against the ever-so-saucy Christina Aguileras of the world, Vitamin C lacked a few milligrams. Prudishness will certainly not plague More. On Vitamin C's sophomore offering, the aspiring pop and film starlet you can catch her in Dracula 2000 musses up her hair see cover photo and -- with help from pop-chart songwriting vets -- her subject matter. The dance-happy opening tracks, "The Itch" "I wanna go down…You can't reach where I need scratching" and "Sex Has Come Between Us," get right down to business. But once she gets your attention, Vitamin C, who fronted alt band Eve's Plum, proves worthy of a longer relationship. The über-catchy "That Was Then, This Is Now" is as substantive as it is infectious, and "As Long As You're Loving Me" is an electronic-sprinkled ballad worthy of Madonna's Ray of Light. The album's one misstep is a straightforward cover of the Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like" that fails to improve on the original. But even that song speaks volumes: On More, there's no arguing that Vitamin C knows what guys want.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Vitamin C's first album was pitched directly at junior-high and high-school kids, to the point that its breakthrough single, "Graduation Friends Forever," was pumped full of yearbook clichés. Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that she wanted to spice up her image with her second album, More, adding a little more sex and sophistication -- two things that are only appropriate for a singer closing in on 30. While the title implies this is another ride on the teen pop merry-go-round, More winds up having more style and substance than its predecessor. Vitamin C isn't afraid to be either slyly witty or to celebrate her new wave roots, not just on the cover of the Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like," but in the general frothy, synthesized approach of the entire album highlighted by the near-robotic vocals on "She Talks About Love". Much of this music is lightweight, but deliberately so, and, at its best, such as "Dangerous Girl," its bright, shiny attitude is utterly giddy. Vitamin C isn't content on making effervescent, featherweight pop singles; she wants to sex it up a bit, vamping on occasion such as on the lead single, "The Itch", and, with "Sex Has Come Between Us," she gives into a platonic friendship turned romantic unlike Britney, who just teased on "Oops! I Did It Again". There's no mistaking this for anything other than a dance-pop record, yet it's made by an artist that is thankfully a little too old for teen pop. She's in on the joke, playing with the conventions, adding a touch more wit, both in the music and lyrics, as well as more classicist pop songcraft. That doesn't mean that this is as purely pop as Fountains of Wayne, but it's easy to see this becoming a guilty pleasure for that group's fans. And they may even wind up embracing its knowing approach to teen pop more than teens themselves.

    FEEL THE ITCH- AGAIN!

    If you haven't caught onto pop's most colourful-coiffeured princess; then you probably haven't heard of Vitamin C! If she isn't making statements with her ever changing hair-colour, Colleen Fitzpatrick is DEFINATELY getting the attention she deserves for her MUSIC! "More" definately far excels her debut solo effort. The songs are hot and the overall CD- ROCKZ!! The highlights are: "The Itch", "Busted", "I Can't Say No", "Dangerous Girl" and the hip "She Talks About Love". If you're looking for the perfect song when you're down at the beach eyeing on boys...then checkout "I Know What Boys Like". Vitamin C stretches her vocals to the max on "As Long As You're Loving Me". Another track that's worth mentioning is "That Was Then, This Is NOw".. No pop music fan's collection should go without this phenominal CD!!

    THIS CD ROCKS!

    This Cd, More, is GREAT! One song is a little in-appropriate, but the rest are really awesome and they make me want to dance! I especially liked Busted and I Know What Boys Like!
