As a Cheryl Cole fan who so wanted to love this album, I write this review with disappointment oozing from my pores. It took me about 10 listens to like Fight For This Love. I then loved it. With this in mind, I gave the album a few good listens. Perhaps the repetitiveness of songs like Parachute "I don't need a parachute baby if I've got you, baby if I've got you, I don't need a parachute" and Make Me Cry "are you trying to make me cry? are you trying to make me cry? (repeat approximately 87 times) where in fact brilliant and I was somehow missing the point. I decided to gloss over the less than impressive lyrics because even the lyrics to Fight For This Love are terrible. Perhaps she will show off her brilliant voice and impress me. Nope! Not since the release of Victoria Beckham's self-titled debut album have vocals been so bland and uninteresting. In fact, this album has absolutely nothing going for it. Nothing! If you own the single Fight For This Love then you'd be as well just not buying it. There isn't one redeemable song to be found - not one!!! Stand Up puts up a good fight, but Cheryl sings the song with such a lazy droll that she manages to make a dance song send the listener to sleep. The chords used throughout the album are really depressing too. The worst song by far on the album is the absolute drivel that is 3 Words - a song that I can only imagine ever being played at 5am at a house party when everyone is lying on the couch feeling the comedown of the alcohol euphoria they felt a few hours previously. The fact that she's releasing this as the next single is astonishing. But then is it? I have no idea what else she could possibly release as a single from this dire album. With all the money that was thrown at this, she could have come up with something a lot better. Why did she even work with Will.I.Am anyway? I can see the point in maybe working with him for one or two songs, but an entire album??? In one of the songs he makes her sing "whichu" instead of "with you". It sounds ridiculous. It's as though he said "where are you from?" - "Newcastle" - "Nope! You are from gangland New York when you are in my studio, got it???". And - now this is hilarious - the very last track on the album is Will.I.Am's own song Heartbreaker that Cheryl Cole does quite literally only sing three words on. A lot of people are going to feel letdown by this album. So, to summarise. I gave the album a chance. I overlooked the weak production, the depressing chords, the baby-ish lyrics, and the voice that couldn't carry a shopping bag let alone a tune. But what it all comes down to is that this is just a really, really crap album.
