On her solo debut, Vitamin C (A.K.A. Colleen Fitzpatrick) offered up a pop-friendly, genre-jumping disc of chart-oriented songs that, to listeners familiar with her past, was surprisingly far removed from the alt-rock sound of her former band Eve's Plum. The follow-up album MORE continues more or less in the same vein as its predecessor, but with even more of a pop sheen in both the production and the songwriting (the presence of hitmaking composer Billy Steinberg is a clue to the direction here).
The bubbly electro-pop/R&B of "The Itch" and pure pop balladry of "As Long as You're Loving Me" might not sound out of place on a Britney Spears album. Meanwhile a turbo-charged update of the Waitresses' '80s hit "I Know What Boys Like" seems like a natural move aimed at the ears of a new generation of popsters who never heard the original.
Rolling Stone (2/01/01, p.59) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Ultra-catchy ditties that deal with some eternal pop dynamics....Her ability to wink at the microphone while generating teen pop's requisite sincerity personalises [the] factory-made hooks....If you crave teen pop's sparkle but spurn its saccharine, Vitamin C may be just what the doctor ordered."
Spin (3/01, p.148) - 7 out of 10 - "...Vitamin C++...her bandwagon has become a Lexus low-rider....Groovy detail-freakism. Every space on MORE hums with blip-skipping bonus beats, phone-sex coos, and backing vocals boingin' like bungee cords..."
Entertainment Weekly (1/26/01, p.102) - "...[She] certainly has the witty, danceable electro-pop thing down....[but] where she really shines through is on timeless AM-radio fluff like 'Dangerous Girl'..." - Rating: B
