Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Demonstrating range, authority, and deep feeling, Australian-bred Jamie O'Neal -- who's sung backup with the likes of Mindy McCready, Jason Sellers, Ronnie Milsap, Sonya Isaacs, and Chely Wright, and had her compositions covered by Wright and Tammy Cochran -- makes the most of her debut moment on Shiver. A tender/tough ballad, "Where We Belong" alternates reflective verses with bold choruses in advancing the notion of love as the ever-solid bedrock supporting even the stormiest relationships. "You Rescued Me," a steady rolling ode of gratitude to the lover who kept her on the righteous path during a tough time, finds O'Neal employing an interesting array of tonal ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Demonstrating range, authority, and deep feeling, Australian-bred Jamie O'Neal -- who's sung backup with the likes of Mindy McCready, Jason Sellers, Ronnie Milsap, Sonya Isaacs, and Chely Wright, and had her compositions covered by Wright and Tammy Cochran -- makes the most of her debut moment on Shiver. A tender/tough ballad, "Where We Belong" alternates reflective verses with bold choruses in advancing the notion of love as the ever-solid bedrock supporting even the stormiest relationships. "You Rescued Me," a steady rolling ode of gratitude to the lover who kept her on the righteous path during a tough time, finds O'Neal employing an interesting array of tonal shadings to evoke a woman under siege. The limpid, moody "There Is No Arizona" finds her coping compellingly with romantic loss, with O'Neal's languid vocal heightened by Jim Hoke's atmospheric chromonica lines. The provocative title cut is a big production spiced with soft-focus interludes, with lyrics that edge into R-rated territory in their evocative descriptions of physical desire.
All Music Guide - Rick Cohoon
Solid songwriting and powerful vocals course throughout Jamie O'Neal's debut album, Shiver. Though billed as a country recording artist, O'Neal's voice lends itself more to pop; therefore, the album comes across as a country-pop blend, with mandolins and the occasional fiddle giving it a country identity. The best cuts on the album are "When I Think About Angels" and "There Is No Arizona," both of which Mercury Records had the musical foresight to release as singles. This was probably a smart move to introduce the world to Jamie O'Neal, as almost all the remaining songs, with the exception of "Sanctuary" and "Frantic," will probably not be running through the listener's head all day at work. The mixing and engineering elements are all here and work in the album's favor, but the whole package, while not at all bad, lacks the polish of the pros. That said, Shiver would still be a fine CD to pop in while going down the road or for a quiet evening at home. As her career progresses, O'Neal's music will most surely get better and better.

    Amazing Album

    Absolutly amazing CD. I asked for it for Christmas, mainly for ''Arizona'' that I had heard on the radio but I think ''When I Think About Angels'' is even better.

    Jamie's song ''There Is NoArizona'' is the best song I have heard in a long time.

    Shiver is a MUST HAVE

    This album is so much fun. It's got a great variety of music from uptempo to ballads. My favorite is When I Think About Angles, but I like all the songs - it's hard to narrow it down. A great CD for listening in your car.
