Product Description


Freak of Nature, the second album from former wedding singer Anastacia Newkirk, continues the late-1980s funk pop revival that her debut Not That Kind started. And in true 1980s style, everything's big. From the striding groove of the title track to the flag-waving chorus on "Paid My Dues" and the aerobic workouts of "One Day in Your Life" and "Don't Stop (Doin' It)", her larger-than-life vocals are matched at every turn by feisty attitudes and pounding tunes. As before, sincerity-challenged power ballads are the only sticking point; although this time they're kept to a minimum, and while it may be hard to tell her apart from Mariah and company on "I Dreamed of You", it provides ample opportunity to secure fragile crockery before her ferocious wail revs up again. Sticking to the anthemic Chaka Khan formula makes Freak of Nature a dependable follow-up album, but when it charts the middle ground between ballad and bombast--as with "Overdue Goodbye" and "Secrets"--it betters its predecessor. With lingering melodies and tender funk struts, Anastacia prooves she doesn't have to positively belt out a tune in order to soar. --Mark Daniels

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa, Girl Friend Got it goin on! 30 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A while ago I bought anastacias first album, "Not that kind". It was absolutely amazing, and when I heard about her doing a new album, I thought there would be no way that she could equal the quality of the last one- however, she proved me wrong. Girlfriends voice is 100% fantastic on every track, using her husky large range to deliver powerballads, and funky songs, and keeping the vocals tantalising. Here is my review for each song:
1) Freak Of Nature: 5/5, An exciting opening, with a really funky bass line.
2) Paid My dues 4/5, going back to the old pop delivery such as with the 1st album on I'm outta love. A good 1st single.
3)Overdue Goodbye 4/5, and interesting mix of country and pop, handled with expertise and vocally amazing.
4) You'll never be alone 5/5, amazing song, with fantastic lyrics, melody, and especially vocals. The best vocal on the album
5) One day in your life 5/5, a catchy follow up single, has potential.
6) How come the world dont stop 5/5, a really nice chilled ballad, showing anastacias more controlled side.
7) Why'd you lie to me 2/5, this song sounds like album filler, I generally skip over this one, however, her vocals shine through 1nce again.
8) Dontcha wanna 5/5, a sexy funky pop tune that is fantastic and catchy.
9) Secrets 5/5, a fantastic slower pop song, with a really catchy tune and lovely beginning.
10) Dont stop 5/5, this song grows on you with time, it will have you singing it by the end, along with anastacias fantastic vocals.
11) I dreamed you 5/5, a perfect ending, with mostly pianoaccapella. Without the beat throughout, sounds fantastic, and builds into a very aretha franklin style ending.
12) Overdue goodbye (reprise), 3/5, I think this was just a filler to bulk up the album, nothing different to the 1st version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 31 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
WOW! This album is brilliant!
Freak Of Nature- this sassy and funky song is definately a future single.
Paid My Dues- First single, and my goodness- what a single! Anastacia uses her mighty lungs to the full here!
Overdue Goodbye-Beautifully relaxing. I love the soft country sound of this one.
You'll Never Be Alone-Lovely. The type of song that Anastacia does best, yep it's a powerful ballad.Definately has single potential
One Day In Your Life- Same production as I'm Outta Love, but I've got no problem with that! It will be a hit when it is released.
How Come The World Won't Stop- My personal favourite- its tear-jerking, heartfelt lyrics get the eyes watering. Purely placid.
Why'd You Lie To Me- Lyrics,"good for nothing type o' brother" reminiscent of Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills." Fantastic!
Dont'cha Wanna- Groovetastic! I love the chorus.
Secrets-A wondeful, cooled down song, which includes lots of feeling and emotion.
Don't Stop-Another magnificent disco-tastic stomper.
I Dreamed You- Astounding piano ballad, which fits Anastacias amazing vocals perfectly.
Overdue Goodbye (Reprise)- Another reminder of the celestially chilled feel of the third track, polishing off another amplut album.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'She's no Freak of Nature' 3 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well what can I say that no-one else has already said about this fantastic album. Basically the whole album is pop-tastic, she has put together an album which outshines her previous one 'Not that kind' because the tracks are so upbeat a few are tracks that you can just chill out to after a hard day at work, and the rest just get you in the mood to get up and dance.
Here is a few tracks which I think are the Bees Knees: 'Freak of Nature' a very upbeat track which gets the adrenalin going, 'Paid my dues' classy number, 'One day in your Life' this one is a favourite of mine because it reminds me of certain events in my life.
So all in all a excellent album which is a must buy, so if you don't go out & buy it you have lost out big style.
All the best Cat
Anastacia fan from Northern Ireland

5.0 out of 5 stars What a powerful voice! 16 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
After buying this album, I can't believe that i actually used to dislike Anastacia! But a couple of her songs had grown on me, namely One Day in Your Life, and I'm Outta Love, so I decided to take a huge risk and buy her second album to see if these songs too would grow on me... So what happened? Basically I fell in love with it, because her voice is so strong and powerful, and she knows exactly what kind of music compliments it. There are a couple of weaker tracks here, but because they are surrounded by brilliant ones, they take their place too with the best tracks. My personal favourites are Why'd You Lie to Me and You'll Never be Alone.
If you liked the released singles, of which there are many, then this album will be exactly what you expect, no surprises, just good music that you can sing along to. Roll on her next album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot stuff! 5 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Whenever I hear some of the songs on her album, my feet start moving all by themselves, especially the hit single 'Paid my dues' has that effect on me. Even when I enter the training room bone-tired, if they put that song on, I'm a new woman, filled with energy and in a good mood. It works as well when I'm just lazing around and listen to that CD, my moods always goes up a few notches.
Great CD! Worthy music and damn, has she got a smoky powerful voice!
