Product Description

Product Description

Diana Vickers was RCAs highest grossing domestic artist in 2010, the year in which her debut album achieved No1 status as did her first single. Having completed two sold-out tours in support of her debut album, Vickers soon decamped to LA to start working on songs for what would be her second album. In a music industry saturated with young female singers, there's a wonderful, almost indefinable quality to Diana Vickers' voice that manages to draw you in. In the three years since her debut, Vickers has continued with acting (Following her critically acclaimed lead role in the west end version of Little Voice to star in the forthcoming film The Perfect Wave), launched her own fashion line and dipped her toe in the modeling world, but all this has been extra-curricular; she's also been writing and honing her second album, Music To Make Boys Cry, a sophisticated collection of 80s-tinged electro bangers and featherlight, synth-lead love songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly fantastic pop 1 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
like many i discovered the fantastic miss vickers on the brilliant single once however her debut album did not cut it apart from some truly amazing pop songs (Chasing You,You'll Never Get To Hevan & Remake Me & You) and after the slighly bonkers but amazing girls aloud meets 60s girl band on a sugar rush "My Wicked Heart" she left her label for a more "Indie" sound i was worried however this album is pure pop brilliance with a twist opening track "Music To Make Boys Cry" is a fanastic glittery electro-pop gem with amazing songwriting and a hint of sadness is brillant and next track "Cinderella" is pure dreamy electro-pop amazing-ness and "Lighting Strikes" also follows in the footsteps of those tracks with a fanatstic "Hey-na-na-na" hook! "Dead Heat" is a blippy addictive electro pop number next "Boy in Paris" is catcy quirky pure electro pop song however the orignal production wich was relased along time ago is much better than this the one feels slighly over produced however "Mad at Me" is a fansatic fizzing slighly bonkers electro pop number with amazing whizzie bits and as amazing sexy vocols from diania! "Smoke" is a generic dubstep song wich isnt very good however "Mr Postman" makes up for it with its fantastic 60's production "Better in French" is a fanastic disco style pop song with flirty lirycs and a brillaint vocol perfomance then closing track "Blame Game" is amazing and steels the show! with its amazing production wizzie bits and lyrics it is euphoric yet tinged with sadness and makes you want to cry and dance at the smae time. all in all "MTMTBC" is a perfect sparkley,euporic,energetic cutting edge pop album that will make you cry and dance at the same time and one not to be missed!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay 6 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"It's okay" is the Amazon description of 3 stars, and accurate for this.

Frankly, you should just read Fjireland's "The Curse of Lengthy Gaps..." review which pretty much captures it, particularly the closing comment

"...fine but nothing to get excited about and that is sad because I feel she should be far more successful than she has been"

I Loved Diana's debut album. It was a really solid album that sold a healthy 500+ k in the UK. But after ONCE , she struggled to find a single that captured the public / radio which was a shame as the album had stellar tracks.
Her career has been frustrating to watch over the last few years. Like a lot of artists these days, she has suffered an unhealthily long gap between this and her last album. But the music industry overall is really struggling to adapt to the constant changes. Diana would obviously have benefited from having her album out sooner. Labels just seem to be so nervy and reluctant to truly invest in artists now. Look at heavyweights like Celine Dion and Mariah Carey who both have delayed and delayed their albums. Rush releasing stuff that isn't right isn't good either but surely there is a happy medium.

A gap like this isn't good for many reasons. Diana initially said she wanted to get a second album out quickly. Her differences with RCA that led to her parting with them and the delay hasn't been good as she has spent so long shopping a new deal. Her profile has slipped hugely and she is now long forgotten by the public at large.

But the real problem here is that Diana hasn't delivered the amazingly good album that I would have hoped. Sure, it has its moments and it's good in places but it all feels very half heartedly put together.

Cinderella never was a lead single. It is catchy in parts but it just doesn't grab you like Once did.
The fact that she titled the album Music to Make Boys Cry and chose a track she gave away free nearly two years ago as her second single and the lead-in single to the album launch is very telling. The goods aren't totally here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear! A Descent Into Electro Pop. 29 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, her debut was a remarkable album laced with good banging tunes like Once, The Boy Who Murdered Love, My Hip (where she got to play trumpet) and the beautiful ballads Four Leaf Clover and N.U.M.B. The songs were thought out and had a band feel to them (you know, real instruments played etc). She even talked of doing more alternative stuff as opposed to the mindless electro pop of her contemporaries like Ellie Goulding, but it seems she's done the exact opposite and become another corporate clone! The problem lies in originality and time. For a lady who has her hands in all pies, maybe music isn't her full time job anymore? Who knows Diana - you need to get your priorities right, you can't be an actor, entrepreneur and recording artist all at once!. No one has ever achieved that. The music will always suffer. Here we have cheesy songs in the name of the title track all following that same mindless electro beats going nowhere fast. The great works of her debut have all come undone. Diana you are a beautiful lady with a unique voice and potential to really rise above the rest but I'm afraid this doesn't cut the mustard with me, and i'm afraid i don't think you will make many boys cry if you can get any emotion out of them that is. This is just dire synth pop drowning in a sea of indifference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crying Boys Love Diana
I really liked this and it's a capable follow up to her debut album.
It's very 1980's retro synth pop - Diana could have given Yazoo a run for their money.
