Product Description

Product Description

EMMA BUNTON Free Me (2004 UK issue 12-track CD featuring the second solo album from the ex-Spice Girl. Includes the singles Free Me Maybe Ill Be There and Crickets Sing For AnaMaria. With lyric booklet picture sleeve featuring some stunning snaps of Emma)

Amazon.co.uk

The title track from Free Me is so evocative of James Bond it should come with a free Martini. On her latest album Emma Bunton tries to reinvent herself as a modern Sandie Shaw. Following the title track is a Sergio Mendes style piece of Brazilian pop. To continue the club-tropicana feel there's even a cover of Brazilian Marcos Valle's irresistible "Os Grilos" ("The Crickets"), here known as "Crickets Sing for AnaMaria".

Will her fans get this? Does she still have fans? Who is Emma Bunton? Like all the other Spice Girls she's searching for a musical identity after losing a collective wholeness. Note the change from Emma Bunton to Emma, another way to separate past from present. But having Brazilian musical plastic surgery doesn't cover up the fact that underneath the alterations is a woman undergoing the painful process of finding artistic individuality. She best achieves this on the ironically titled "No Sign of Life". This is by no means a bad album. "Breathing", after a few plays, sounds like a possible No. 1. "Who the Hell Are You?" could easily power a car advert. It doesn't say a lot but sounds fun, which is about right for this album. --Jake Barnes

When I first heard about Emma's new album I was admitingly excited. :-) I wanted to hear the new stuff and what she had to offer. Little by little I heard the new tracks, and I started to love her. The cd to me is a full on 5 star album. It's a great compilation of 12 songs. The strongest being the Title track "Free Me" and a funky up beat song "Crickets Sing For AnaMaria" And the hit single "Maybe" which is still pleasing. The latest single "I'll Be There" will please many to know that the album has many others like this song. So all in all this new album will make Emma HUGE in my mind. I'm an American fan. And I plan on letting people know about this album. It might actually break into the USA..Which I hope it does. But I would expect to see HUGE Sales in the UK! And All I have to say is CONGRATS EMMA!

I bought this album today - and I think it is wonderful. It contains 12 light pop songs to be enjoyed. For information about them see the other reviews here. I also wish to draw your attention to a review listed here entitled: It's a good job we're all different, 9 February, 2004 .Reviewer: viletrog from manchester United Kingdom. This reviewer refers to Emma as "this sad fat bloated tart". I find this highly offensive. The 'reviewer' goes against Amazon's policy of having listened to the album before reviewing. And then they make an offensive personal comment which has nothing to do with the CD at all. I reported this to Amazon and asked them to remove the offending 'review'. They did not bother to. Nor did they reply to my email, apart from sending a 'standard' reply which of course made no reference to my complaint. I am really sick of Amazon allowing people to write reviews on CDs they obviously haven't heard. And I am sick of Amazon allowing offensive personal remarks to be made about artists. They even allowed someone to write a review about Michelle's new CD a month ago (it only came out today!) saying she should stick to eating pies! I am so sick of Amazon not replying to my emails while they are only to keen to process my purchase orders. So where does this leave me? I will henceforth buy all my CDs from CD-WOW and am looking for another site which sells books. I hope this has made you think. By the way 'Free Me' by Emma is fab! And did I buy it from Amazon? Of course not, I paid over the odds for it in MVC. But it was worth it.

Emma Bunton takes the youth of today on a journey back to the swinging sixties, with top ten singles such as 'Free Me', 'Maybe' and 'I'll Be There'. The album's success relies on its simplicity, it is not deep or emotive, but more fun and cheerful, a reflection of the music of the 1960's- think the Supremes, the Beatles etc... It is also highly original for its time period, something commendable in its own right. This album has many standout tracks, however obvious ones include:
Free Me- The James Bond esque power number, with a strong chorus and sexy verses "how I long to seduce you/ let me loose to love you"
Maybe- "Love isnt funny, when it is burning inside/ when all you think of is how to get through the night", the high-production number, which has a great stage presence and perhaps most reflective of the 60's influence which Emma claimed to have had.
I'll Be There- great chorus, very uplifting and catchy, simple yet charming- "I'll Be there/ whenever you need a friend". It is perhaps one of the most anthem-like songs on the album, a song everyone will know of at the end of its radio run..

No Sign of Life- Another song which would not sound out of place on a James Bond soundtrack, No Sign Of Life is probably one of the strongest, lyrically on the album, with such lines as "won't see me crying/but tears still flow through my veins" "there's something dying/but my world lies broken in two",
Breathing- well produced, with excellent instrumentation and vocal performance: "imagine a feeling/of passion are you seeing/the sounds of us breathing/why does it feel so cold?

I 'ummed and aahed' over buying this album. I loved the three singles, but was aware of the stigma attached to supporting a former Spice Girl.
But, I am so glad I held my head high and purchased this fantastically different album. It is a breath of fresh air compared to the stale sounds of the manufactured charts, which may seem ironic considering that it is 19 management behind Ms Bunton, but you certainly would not think so!
Ex-Baby Spice is not reknowned for her strong voice, but picking up on the 60s theme suits her soft vocals perfectly.
All 12 songs (better value than the average Spice albums!) are catchy and possible singles, which is rare for albums these days. It is a real shame that Emma has been ignored in the media previously because she seems to be the only Spice worthy of any musical credit.
Advice: If you loved the singles, you'll love the album. Very classy!!!

Today I got my album from Amazon.co.uk and I can't stop listening to it, Emma has done a good job with this one, the sounds on it are very James Bond's movie but with Emma's style, her voice suits every song, even Crickets Sing... that its a cover, sounds great. Every song has a different story, but the same taste. It's hard to decide wich is the best one on the album, but you will be inmediatly in love with: Free Me, Maybe, Tomorrow, CSFA, No Sign Of Life & Something So Beautiful. If you enjoy good music and you wanna try something different this will be definately your album...
