“I'm fully aware that when some people hear my name in a musical context, it's not often equated to anything earth-shattering. Yet, in many ways, this new record finds itself in a similar vein to the previous one, "Wild Hope." While “Amanda Leigh” was recorded in a much more concise period of time, both albums just feel like a real body of work, more ... Read more in Amazon's Mandy Moore Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

She is only 15 years old and has already opened for 'N Sync on their nationwide tour. Is currently on tour with the Backstreet Boys and her 1st single, "Candy," is currently Top 30 on the Billboard Top 40. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

In the market for a single album consolidating most of the selling points of mainstream female teen- and dance-pop of the past few years? Try Mandy Moore's So Real. Various cuts here demonstrate her (and her writing and production teams') mastery of the styles of Britney Spears, the Spice Girls, Janet Jackson, and early Madonna. While projecting a playful sultriness much like that of Spears, the younger Moore takes pains to keep things chaste: not only does she promote "trust" on "What You Want," she rhymes it with "crush," not "lust." Complete with a hook that defies interpretation ("I'm missin' you like candy") on the breakthrough single "Candy," and a can't-miss Janet-style ballad in "Walk Me Home," So Real adds a welcome note of CD-length consistency to the current girl-pop formula. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC ALBUM....FANTASTIC SONGS December 27, 1999
By Piper
Format:Audio CD
All I have to say is this-- Mandy Moore--So Real--So Good. Really, I ain't joking. I really don't know what the deal is with this Spears chick, but I'm telling you, Mandy is NOTHING at all like her. Her songs are more meaningful, upbeat and...good. She has songs that will keep you humming to the tune for days. (Trust me) I'm going to be honest to all you music-lovers, out of all the eleven songs I heard, I liked...all of THEM. Finally, an album where I enjoy listening to all the songs in the track. Now, of course, I'm a person that enjoys listening to pop. Please, don't buy this cd if you like listening to Korn or Hole, or something like that. It's just not for you. I have absolutely no regrets buying this cd. It's the best. And you're talking to an experienced person here. So go on and buy the album, and try it and see. Really. Go do it. Now.

Well I just bought this Cd and it's good and it's music sounded like Britney and Christina Beat in together, and so this cd is great for those who are Mandy's fans, and also for Britney's and Christina's Fans. Also Mandy is only 15 yrs old and is the my best 15 year old singer. So if you like my review, try to buy the cd it's great. My favorite Musics are: #1 "So real",#2 "Candy", #3 "What you want",#5 "Lock me in your heart",#7 "Quit breaking my heart" ,and #9 "Not too young" from the CD track. So this is a great Cd. So try to buy this cd is great and the beat is good too.

I have to admit, when I first got this cd I was not so thrilled with the tracks and the singing. It was different than other things I'd heard, like Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera. But that's what makes it better than their cds: It's different. Mandy does seem to follow with the other girl trends, but it looks like she's started her own path. Her songs are fun, not too serious, and innocent. Nothing naughty here.
It takes a while to warm up to it, but I've listened to it and listened to it and it just gets better and better every time.
Go Mandy! You've got the right idea! This cd is perfect for anyone who loves pop. You don't have to love Britney to get into Mandy Moore. :o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Question? December 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I just don't get it. Mandy Moore is ten times better than Britney Spears, so why isn't her album in the top ten yet? Her cd provides upbeat and refreshing music that's such an improvement from "Soda Pop" and "E-Mail My Heart" So HOW COME BRITNEY'S ALBUM IS SO ON TOP AND MANDY'S ALBUM IS SO BELOW? I am truly concerned. And Angry

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, happy album December 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album because I was in the mood for some bubblegum music. I didn't buy So Real because I wanted some life-changing, earth-shattering music. I just wanted to hear some fun music and that's what I got. This album is really good and songs like "So Real", "Candy", and "Love Shot" are fun up-tempos. "Walk Me Home" and "Quit Breaking My Heart" are sweet. I love "Lock Me In Your Heart" and "Love You For Always". "I Like It" is a HUGE surprise. It has a genuine R&B/soul, mature sound. If it was released as a single, it would shock a lot of people. It's not bubblegum at all. I can imagine any respected R&B artist singing "I Like It" and Mandy does a great job on it. If Mandy decides that she wants to be more than a bubblegum artist, she should do more songs like "I Like It". Overall, this album is a lot stronger than Britney Spears's. With Britney's album, I only like about 3 songs but I like most of Mandy's album. Mandy does have an average voice, which really shows on "Not Too Young", but it's not awful... Buy this album if you like fun music. Yes, most of it is bubblegum but sometimes that's not so bad. Who wants to be serious all the time?

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Funky Fresh! February 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Okay, it is inevitable that Mandy is being compared to other teen "pop princesses" like Britney, Christina, and Jessica. And to tell you the truth, I am fans of them all. But out of all their debut CD's I like Mandy's "So Real" the best. I saw Mandy live twice opening for *N Sync, and I met her, and she is really sweet, and seemed truly happy to be there with the fans. When her single for Candy came out, I bought it before I even heard it on the radio. She has an amazing voice. I truly enjoy every song on this CD. "Candy" has all the makings of a pop hit. "What You Want" and "Not Too Young" are original funky lil numbers. And her voice sounds so sweet on ballads like "Walk Me Home" and "Quit Breaking My Heart." Out of the 12 songs on the CD, there are only 2 that are "just okay" in my opinion. I think that Mandy is talented beyond her years, and she has a great future ahead of her.

By Mandy Moore's own admission, this was a poor album. A few of the singles are catchy, so save your money and buy them instead of the entire album.
