Editorial Reviews

'Standing Tall' is the debut solo album from former Hear'say vocalist Kym Marsh. Pure mainstream pop with simple lyrics & catchy tunes. Much in the same vein as her other pop contemporaries Natalie Imbruglia, Emma Bunton & Appleton. This UK special edition CD includes her top five solo single 'Cry' as well as the single 'Come On Over', along with 13 other tracks. Universal. 2003.

5.0 out of 5 stars Standing Tall is the best of all January 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Kym Marsh's debut CD is great!!! Despite rumors of her just being dropped by record label after poor 3rd single sales, this album is one of my faves. This album charted at no.9 in the UK
Cry - 10/10
- First single. This is a great mid-tempo track is considered the greatest track on the album. The chorus is really catchy as violin strings give it a great effect. UK Charted no.2
Come on over - 9/10
- Uptempo no. and the 2nd single The acoustic is really catchy on this track but the lack of beat linking the chorus and verses slow the song down for a little bit. Charted UK no.10
Sentimental - FAVE
- 3rd single and my fave track on the album. This is really different from the two singles beforehand, it is more rocky. It starts off simple acoustic but then the rock sound kicks in at the bridge. UK Charted no.35
I think it's gonna rain today - 9/10
- This is a really husky song. Kym does little singing and is more talking. Is similar to the Kelly Clarkson track 'Beautiful Disaster'
After Goodbye - 9/10
- First ballad. This song is really epic and the guitar is brill! Kym's vocals are really strong and the song is strong throughout
Girl I used to be - 9/10
- This is a carbon copy of Cry. The acoustic is basically the same and the vocal beat is basically the same. Doesn't make it rubbish though, is very catchy
Standing Tall - 10/10
- This opens with an electric guitar and sets the pace for the rest of the album. This is really unique from the rest of the album as it's something that a rock/pop artist would do
Cross every river - 7/10
- If country music is your thing then this song is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! May 30, 2011

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved the album! Especially songs 1-3. Come on Over and Sentimental were the two big Hits. Cry was also another one. I loved those 3 songs! Theres are also videos for all 3 of them too. The rest of the album was nice! I wish she did more with her singing career. She is very talented. However I also enjoy her acting career on Coronation Street! Keep it up Kym!

3.0 out of 5 stars Songs of the Dead June 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Kym Marsh's album. Where do you go?

Kym's an extremely sexy woman, with deeply alluring rough edges. She grew up on a rough housing estate, worked for Ann Summers(!), started celeb-life fat, in horrendous Hear'say and finished up marrying a failed soap actor as well as regularly appearing in a famous soap opera herself. (She plays a dysfunctional matriarch, who earns a crust from bar-maiding and sleeping with the greasy pub landlord. Her son was swapped at birth (I think!) and her family is dropping like flies, but she still has that envied Northern sassiness and brassiness so coveted in soft Southern boroughs, and, almost supernaturally shiny hair and lippy. Her character is called...Michelle.) Kym's a Manchester version of Cher, hard-faced and soft-hearted.

So what about her album? What about the review?
Well in a review context, it has a few good songs and quite a lot of bad ones. 'Come On Over' is the star, solid acoustic strumming and Kym's seductive vocal make it a winner, and 'Sentimental' also works quite well, Kym showing a range and an uncharacteristic lack of fear of doing something a bit different.

About a third of the way in though, it starts getting bogged down by dreary ballads and predictable pap. 'After Goodbye' is weak, so too 'Here Comes Heaven' and the rest of 'Standing Tall' is sort of fair-to-middlin' with the exception of 'Cry' which is a mouldy stinkhorn.

A wholly predictable 3-star album, over-produced to death, and not letting us see enough of Kym, battling valiantly against the double threat, real on the horizon, of the solo careers of Emma Bunton and, (gasp!) the Wicked Witch of the West; Mylene Klass.
She needn't have worried, neither did much better, but it must've hurt that they were both so much posher.
