I speak as a big fan of Natasha's previous works, 'Unwritten', 'N.B.' and the North American-only release 'Pocketful of Sunshine'. On this latest offering, Ms. Bedingfield thankfully stayed true to her original sound, stuck with her roots and maintained her genuity, whilst also evolving and maturing without taking any of that original sincerity she has always possessed, away. I'm so happy that she didn't move on to a sound and feeling untrue to her i.e. the current trent of electro-pop that everybody seems to be doing these past couple of years, which although I'm not particularly against, just isn't my preferred genre of music. Natasha herself says of the meaning behind the album; "It's about being human. We all look different, but when you strip it all away, we all have similar emotions. The ups and the downs, the joys, the sorrows, and the power. The uniqueness. The magic. Nothing can take away the beauty and the power of who we are, and the power of our voices." And with that said, I'm about to head on over to Amazon.COM, to order my copy for $9, since while I really do feel the album is worth it and more, I won't be shelling out £21 on here just because it's an import, until the official UK release! If you're a fan of sincere singer/songwriter type music, that doesn't stray too far from the grain but also manages to avoid being bland, and is filled with messages of hope and love, then this is the album for you. Definitely my favourite album of 2010!
