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

Shut Up is the debut studio album by 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 featuring Osbourne's 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] The album had sold 155,000 copies in the U.S. by September 11, 2003, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[3]
