#28 on the UK albums chart - how is this not already on the list?

Yeah, the 2000s girly pop is sorely under represented on this list, and this makes for an interesting entry.

Never thought I would like a pop album this much! It's totally not cliché in any means. Some good beats, easy lyrics to sing along.

Random dance pop from the 00's? wtf! I was ready to put 1 star and rant about the selection... but then 'Crazy Boys' came in and.. ok, it is pretty good. 'I Will Be There' is not bad at all. Sampling The Cure on the next one? wow... OK, it is what it is... but I have to admit is much more inventive and catchy than what you normally get from the genre. Looks like Rachel was part of the band S-Club and this was her second solo record. One third and last was released -unnoticed- a few years later. A shame, she deserved better. Thanks for sharing

6/10. Very bold of a 2000's pop song to claim "I'm gonna stand the test of time". I liked this music in a nostalgic sort of way, but the album was definitely a little longer than I would have liked.

If Come and Get It was delayed for ten years, nothing would have kept me from discovering it during my college poptimism years. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it today. Though a historical shame, the fact that Stevens's discography is shallow is convenient.

Very much the example of heavily produced mainstream Pop. Which is fine but not particularly, you know, special. Can this person really sing? Did they have anything to do with these lyrics or were they written by one of these teams of Swedish savants? Not quite interesting enough to bother looking into.

I do appreciate the slick pop-album from time to time. And that is exactly what this is. Will it change my world? Bring me insights into new musical realms? Trigger me emotionally? No. It doesn't do any of these things. Should it, to be enjoyable? No, it shouldn't. It is just a well done album with plenty earworms on it. Job well done.

Call me crazy, but I actually enjoyed this at some moments. At first I had my review already written down. But after a few songs I felt a different vibe than with her other candypop sisters. A little sophistication if you will. Long story short, sometimes there's more than meets the eye.

A fun bubblegum pop LP to mix things up a bit – ran a bit long for its melodic content, but was a mostly fun listen that was evocative of what I heard on the radio while growing up. Fun to see everyone's different tastes here, even if I don't like every single album it's much more varied and exploratory than the canon 1001 list.

It's pop music. Never heard of this artist before, most likely won't in the future. However, album was pleasant entertainment.

Not something I would normally listen to, but it's poppy and fun. Nothing wrong with that. Reminds me of Madonna. 3 stars.

“The Guardian placed it on their "1000 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die" list.” Yeah, ok. I find this completely soulless and manufactured. Sorry.

What if Britney Spears was named Rachel Stevens? What would that be like?

A unique pick. Not sure how its an all time greatest (I mean, other than someones favorite that made it through the list of 1001). In the vein of "Albums you must listen to" I don't feel this falls on that list. Come and get it.

Not much my taste. Prefer other club music instead

lol it's the chick from S Club 7. Just pointless, mindless 00s dance pop. I vaguely remember thinking she was the hot one of the group. But still: fuuuuck off. This has to be a wind up. 2/5.

It wasn't awful but it was just there. Nothing memorable, kind of bland. Move along.
