Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"I have two different sides of my personality," she explains. "I have a crazy, wild, humorous, outspoken personality, and then I have a depth that only opens up when I am alone or with one other person, and that is captured with this album. I really couldn't do one without the other."

Product Description

There are two sides to every story, as the old adage goes, and there are certainly two sides to the story of singer-songwriter Laura Bell Bundy's daring Mercury Records debut release, Achin' and Shakin'. Laura Bell bypassed the tried-and-true Music Row approach usually taken on country albums and instead created a bold concept album that is essentially two separate albums within one project. The album's title aptly describes the project's division: Achin' is a collection of slow and sultry country songs and Shakin' is a group of sassy songs that are equal parts humor, confidence and attitude. One side presents a modern-day mixture of Loretta Lynn, Minnie Pearl and Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw; the other unveils country's answer to Norah Jones. The debut single, "Giddy On Up," is an irresistibly upbeat and saucy kiss-off to a cheating lover, while the romantic "Drop On By" oozes sensuality as she beckons a lover to visit. Both sides pay homage to traditional country and soul music with a reinterpretation featuring modern production. "'Two records, one woman' is my motto," jokes Laura Bell, who penned all but one of the songs on the album. "I have two different sides of my personality," she explains. "I have a crazy, wild, humorous, outspoken personality, and then I have a depth that only opens up when I am alone or with one other person, and that is captured with this album. I really couldn't do one without the other." Laura Bell Bundy is a well loved star from New York's Broadway, where she made a name for herself in some of the biggest musical theatre productions in the world, including a lead role in Legally Blonde, Hairspray and Wicked. She has also had roles in various films, including Dream Girls and Jumanji.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bundy Shakes the Genre with an Achin' Verve April 13, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Prime Cuts: Drop on By, Homecoming Queen, When It All Goes Down South

If albums were horses, then Bundy's major label debut "Achin' and Shakin'" is a Trojan. Just like the mythical equestrian, this disc housed a myriad of genres drawn intricately from Bundy's colourful background. Drawn initially to dance music as a child, Bundy later became a star at Broadway musicals. Though she had made her splash on shows such as "Hairspray" and "Wicked," her greatest claim to fame is her role in "Legally Blonde: The Musical" where she has even garnered a Tony Award Nomination. Yet, Bundy has never felt constrained to one genre. "Aching' and Shakin'" finds her calling country music home. Even though the moniker "country" is applied to this Mercury Nashville Records debut, lead single "Giddy On Up" has galloped up not only the country charts but also the Billboard dance chart. This makes Bundy the first country female artist to have a debut single charting in these two different terrains. But don't let the lead single misdirect you: "Giddy On Up" is not representative of the entire album. Rather, this CD is a concept recording the two reflective moods associated with love. The "Aching" side of the record is a sultry indulgence into melancholy entanglements of love where Bundy's deep throated contralto has a nostalgic throwback to the times of Tammy Wynette and Lorrie Morgan. On the "Shakin'" side, she dons her Gretchen Wilson outlaw-ish attitude whereby she rocks with a reckless yet seductive charm.

Honestly, the "Aching" side is the better of the two sides. Perhaps her theatrical background is to credited, when she slows down to croon a torch-song, she has a way of reaching deep into her soul to express the ache that is just infectious.

4.0 out of 5 stars LBB deserves to be famous! May 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Laura Bell Bundy's for a few years now after discovering her through her roles in "Hairspray" and "Legally Blonde" on Broadway. A lot of people assume this is Laura Bell's debut country cd but her cd "Longing for a place already gone" and a Christmas cd have been out for a few years now. But anyway, I was quite excited to learn that after Laura finished her run as Elle in "Legally Blonde", she was heading to Nashville to make another country cd. Here are my thoughts on the cd:

Achin' (the first six songs are slow):

1. Drop on by - 5/5 The second single and a perfect song to play when you have a night alone with someone you like or love. It's my second favorite Achin' song.

2. Curse the Bed - 2/5 a song about how one feels after a break-up. It's probably my least favorite Achin' song and I think it's my least favorite song on the cd.

3. Cigarette - 4/5 Kind of a bluesy song. It's my third favorite Achin' song.

4. Please - 5/5 A song about asking your boyfriend to forgive you after cheating. I love this song. I think it's my favorite song on the whole cd and of course my favorite Achin' song. I love the beat and the lyrics.

5. Homecoming Queen - 4/5 This song has grown on me. At first I didn't really care for it but as I listened to it more, I found myself identifying with it and I end up singing along with it.

6. When It All Goes South - 5/5 About Laura's long distance relationship. A beautiful song and I think it's a great way to end the Achin' themed songs.

Shakin' (up-tempo songs that might get you up and dancing):

7. Giddy On Up - 5/5 The first single. I know that some people are not fond of this song (or the video) but I happened to love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the last CD by Laura Bell I will buy. July 11, 2010
By S. Rose
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first CD by Laura Bell that I have purchased. I love it. I play it over and over while cleaning house. I like the division on it of slow and fast tempo grouped together. When it is ont he slower songs, I do something more relaxing like wash dishes or fold clothes and then when the tempo picks up I move to more active cleaning. I can't stop singing along to the lyrics and was glad the words were included. Great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laura Bell Bundy Kicks Booty! June 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I LOVE this CD! Great idea to seperate the slow songs (Achin, tracks 1 thru 6) from the fast ones (Shakin, tracks 7 thru 12), that way you can skip to the song sets that fit your mood. Overall very catchey tunes and nice variety of music on the cd. Beautiful liner notes, with lyrics included ... a nice touch. Also a cd that I can listen to with the kiddos in the car, very little questionable language or adult themed lyrics... and they just LOVE track 7 (Giddy on Up), and ask for it to be played over and over again ... I would recommend this cd. Thoroughly enjoying our purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid Album May 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Laura Bell Bundy's "Achin' and Shakin'" is a very solid debut album. It includes 6 songs for the achin' side and 6 songs for the shakin' side. She sounds great on this cd and should have a long career in country music.
