Vitamin C -- More (Elektra 2000)
by Randy Krbechek
Vitamin C (aka Colleen Fitzpatrick) dials in her sophomore effort, More. With a contemporary pop sound, Vitamin C continues the winning ways reflected on her hit single, "Smile."
Colleen's success with her debut release helped launch her onto magazine covers, radio, and movies (Colleen has screen roles in both Wes Craven Presents: Dracula 2000 and the Ben Foster/Kirstin Dunst flick, Getting Over Allison). Says Vitamin C, "It's all been an incredible experience. I feel good that I've been able to accomplish a lot of things that I originally set out to do."
With More, Colleen continues her blend of innocence and come-hither sensuality. With tracks like "Sex Has Come Between Us" and "I Know What Boys Like" (the old Waitresses' song), Colleen shows her bad-girl side.
Colleen shows her good-girl side on the ballad, "As Long As You're Loving Me," and the album's best track, "She Talks About Love" (with synthesized vocals).
Colleen has a terrific production staff, and makes music in the vein of the early Madonna. Catch this rising star.
