Fire Within is the second album from British singer/songwriter Birdy. The album sees Birdy come to the forefront as a songwriter in her own right, having written/co-written all of the 11 tracks on the new album. Collaborating with some of the biggest names in the business including Ryan Tedder (Beyonce), Dan Wilson (co-wrote and produced "Someone Like You" for Adele), Rich Costey (Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros) and Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons, whom she’s collaborated with in the past. She’s also worked with musicians including Rage Against the Machine bass player Timmy C and Paul Jackson Jnr and Omar Hakim (Daft Punk's band on their album Random Access Memories).

Birdy bears comparison to early work by the magnificent 'Jewel' one of my all times favourites, if you have not heard her Foolish Games, give yourself a treat!
If Birdy can continue to produce work like this, we are witnessing a new star! Cannot wait to see her live at end of October.
Because I have played the digital version of Fire Within to death. If this were a CD it would have developed a fault long ago through overplaying.
"Wings" may be the song that has brought Jasmine Lucilla Elizabeth Jennifer van den Bogaerde to the public's attention but the whole album is a masterpiece and so relaxing to listen to.
Yes Jasmine Lucilla etc.etc. really is this talented young lady's real name. Thank goodness for her decision to go with Birdy.
If you're wondering where the idea for Birdy came from, well so was I. Apparently as a baby she would open her moth so wide when being fed by her parents that they called her Birdy. Brilliant !
Birdy's gravelly voice is utterly beautiful, so relaxing to listen to. So refreshing to listen to an artist where I can comprehend every lyric.
So if you liked Wings and wonder what the rest of the album is like I couldn't recommend this more
1. Wings - Birdy's well known track kicks off the album and it may be a hard act to follow but.....
2. Heart Of Gold does a very good job and I love this track as much as Wings.
3. Light Me Up - is a more uplifting song than the previous two with an addictive chorus.
4. Words As Weapons - back to a more haunting melody with a very gritty track
5. All You Never Say - This is a heartfelt ballad and Birdy really does do the excellent lyrics justice.
6. Strange Birds - Birdy is back with more avian references with another gritty ballad
7. Maybe - The mood lifts again with a really nice, more lyrically optimistic tune.

continue to listen to this album, I discover new gems. All I can say is don't go in seeking a repeat of birdy's first album, just keep an open mind and get ready to be enthralled. This cd has so far been overlooked, what a pity this is! Birdy is evolving in quite the songwriter, and given the right support, this cd will be the beginning of many other gems!
The Auto Rip is a bonus for two reasons..... 1. Not having to wait until the cd arrives to listen and 2. Bought this cd rather than the deluxe version due to the price difference but the album you get to download is the deluxe version.... Handy!! Maybe this is a mistake so buy it quick before Amazon realises ;)
My favourite tracks so far are Wings, Maybe, No Angel and All About You. They're all good tracks though, none of them make me want to skip to the next :)
