    BURN, Jo Dee Messina's follow-up to her breakthrough CD I'M ALRIGHT fairly bursts with joyful energy. Unsurprisingly, considering that in the two years between the CDs, Messina pulled herself out of bankruptcy and found both record-breaking chart success and love. If you're looking for heartbreak here, you're in the wrong place. Nearly every track on BURN is celebratory and upbeat, both lyrically and musically.
    In song after song, Messina exhorts her fans to seize the moment ("Dare to Dream," "These Are the Days"), better their situations ("Angelene"), give themselves over to love ("If Not You," "Closer"), or believe that things will get better ("Downtime," "That's the Way"). Messina's powerful alto has never sounded better, and Tim McGraw's impeccable, acoustic guitar-heavy production rocks without being too slick. McGraw pops up as a guest vocalist on the CD's mesmerizing, stripped-down closing track, "Bring On the Rain," a song about--what else--triumphing over life's adversities. But the CD's centerpiece is the title track, which sets a delicate, poetic lyric against a passionate, power-ballad chorus. Messina's relentless exuberance makes BURN a love letter from a survivor who made it through--and wants you to join her.
