Robert Christgau (3-star Honorable Mention)[1]

Shut Up is the debut album of Kelly Osbourne. After its failure and her consequent drop from Epic Records, the album was re-released in 2003 as Changes, featuring her and her father Ozzy's cover of the Black Sabbath song "Changes". The album is also known for the cover of Madonna's song "Papa Don't Preach".

Reception[edit]

Shut Up received mixed reviews by critics. People magazine said "it takes a whole lot more than the right pedigree and the right haircut to make credible punk rock."[2] Till September 11, 2003 the album sold 155,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.[3]
