As a massive Anastacia fan, I was very excited to here that despite her second battle with breast cancer, Anastacia was recording a new album. I will admit I was concerned at the previews, I thought there were way too many ballads. However since buying the album I've realised its an amazing album. My favourites include: Pendulum, Stupid Little Things, Underdog, Resurrection, Evolution, Staring At the Sun, Lifeline, Dark White Girl and Oncoming Train. The other songs are all growing on me as well. Only song I'm not sure about is Left Outside Alone Part 2.... not a fan of the arrangement, but it also has grown on me.

Overall, I love this album and I'm addicted already.

"Resurrection" is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Anastacia, her first new studio record since "Heavy Rotation" (2008), but following chronically on her 2012 covers-album "It's A Man's World." The title of this new album refers to Anastacia's courageous reappearance after a period of physical and emotional pain, when she overcame breast cancer for a second time.

The power ballad "Staring At The Sun" is a great track to open this album, a hook-laden song propelled by her powerful and unique voice, followed by the slower, emotion-laden "Lifeline," before switching to the intense "Stupid Little Things," a very catchy pop anthem that is a true showcase for her immense vocal range and in which she belts in classic Anastacia style: "Now I know what love is worth in a broken world, But I can't get past the hurt, 'Til I give up on these stupid little things!"

Next is the tugging-at-the-heartstrings piano-ballad "I Don't Want To Be The One." The upbeat pop track "Evolution" is another album highlight, and you truly believe her when she sings: "It took everything to have to come this far." The somewhat bombastic "Pendulum" is another upbeat power-pop track. This is followed by the raw power ballad "Stay," in which she sings: "I'm not ready to go just yet, So I'm gonna stay," letting us know that she hopes for a bright future.

"I can see the light of day, Even through the rainy haze," she sings in "Dark White Girl," another upbeat pop song. This is followed by the beautiful piano-ballad "Apology," which is in turn ensued by regular album closer "Broken Wings," another album highlight and showcase for her fighting spirit. "Anyone would give up, but not me, not now," sings Anastacia in this ballad. "Even with broken wings I can do anything.

The CD has a very beautiful graphic design, the pictures are great. About 3 hits, but most of the record is full with ballad songs. It is good to have this beautiful voice back in action and touring again.

Resurrection is Anastacia's first album of original material since 2008's Heavy Rotation. Written and recorded during her second battle with breast cancer, it's natural that this, and also her recent divorce, has informed much of the writing. But overall Resurrection is a hopeful record which sets out to prove that her life, and career, are far from over.

'Staring at the Sun' is a strong album opener and leads into 'Lifeline'. Despite the fact that she doesn't share writing credits on either songs, both tracks feel like personal statements about her life in recent years. Third song, 'Stupid Little Things' is a definite move upbeat, and showcases her vocal talents to the full.

'I Don't Want to be the One' is another heart-breaking ballad, which is followed by 'Evolution' which is a nice change of pace as again it's another upbeat song, as is track six, 'Pendulum'. 'Stay', one of seven tracks co-written by Anastacia, could be a reference to her cancer battle - witness the lines "I'm not ready to go just yet/So I'm gonna stay".

'Dark White Girl' is another solid song which leads into the penultimate track, 'Apology', another classy ballad. The album closes with 'Broken Wings' which sees the singer vow to continue, no matter what obstacles life throws at her.

The deluxe edition of the album contains an additional four songs - 'Other Side Of Crazy', 'Oncoming Train', 'Resurrection' and 'Left Outside Alone (Part 2)'.

Although the album is a little ballad-heavy, Resurrection is still a very strong return from Anastacia, with plenty of good material. A welcome return.

Amazing album! Somehow Anastacia has become completely underrated over the past 5 years, this album shows she's absolutely still at the top of her game. A real must have.

Format: Audio CD
Only one word will suffice here. Knockout. (I've been a fan since the
beginning so expect extreme bias here...!) 'Resurrection' is easily the
finest release of Anastacia's career so-far. There's a raw emotion
in the voice which time and again really does make the hair stand up
on the back of your neck. Always a great instrument, here it reaches
for another level entirely. These are World-class performances.

There are ten tracks in the standard edition and every one's a gem.
There are few singers who can deliver a big, full-bodied rock
anthem with the energy and conviction of this lady and there are
some real corkers here! The dramatic opening song 'Staring At
The Sun' has Ms Newkirk ripping into it as though her life depended
on it (the power of her lower register had grown remarkably since we
last heard her on her 2012 album of covers 'It's A Man's World');
the tenderness and regret articulated in 'I Don't Want To Be The One'
clearly digs deep into something intensely personal but delivers a
universal punchline which anyone who has loved-and-lost will easily
connect with (have a box of Kleenex to hand!); so too the sublime
'Stay', arguably one of the finest vocal performances of her career
and a song which encapsulates her bravery and instinct for survival.

'Resurrection' is a transcendent display of strength, recovery and self-belief.

Essential.
