Gabriela Cilmi - Ten


Gabriella Cilmi (pronounced “chill me”) has always taken luck into her own hands. “When I was little, I would cut one piece off a three-leaf clover and put it on another to make a four-leaf clover,” the Melbourne, Australia, native says. So, it’s fitting that her debut album, Lessons to be Learned, will be released on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2009, in ... Read more in Amazon's Gabriella Cilmi Store

Product Description

Product Description

Aged only 21, Gabriella Cilmi is back with the release of a new album The Sting. Released through Sweetness Tunes, the album marks a clear departure in both look and sound for the Australian-Italian singer-songwriter who seduced the world with her international hit single 'Sweet About Me'. Five years earlier, aged just 16, Gabriella became known around the world for her soulful smash 'Sweet About Me' (over 2 million copies sold, top ten in 16 countries, 37 consecutive weeks in the UK singles chart, and over 27 million views and counting on Youtube).

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabriella is back on top form! 12 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
Gabriella Cilmi may unfortunately be known by many people simply for one single, her 2008 smash hit single 'Sweet About Me', however if one were to take a look into her back catalogue as well as this new record you'd realise just how criminally underrated this shining Australian songbird is and that she has the ability to pull off any musical style which is a rarity in artists nowadays.

Ms Cilmi first burst onto the scene in 2008 with her critically acclaimed debut album, 'Lessons To Be Learned' which contained elements of pop, soul, rock, funk and jazz and showcased her rich, raspy vocals perfectly. This record was soon followed up in 2010 with the release of her sophomore album, 'Ten', which moved away from her original soulful sound in favour of an exciting eighties-esque, new wave, electronica flavour. Despite being praised by critics, Gabriella was unhappy with the change in direction and felt like nothing more than a mere puppet in the music industry. After low sales of 'Ten', she broke away from her management and label to do it all alone. Three years later, a much more wiser and maturer Gabriella Cilmi returns with her long awaited third studio album, 'The Sting', which sees her yet again shift musical style. This time around, Ms Cilmi takes on a much darker almost ethereal sound, taking inspiration from old soul music and the connotations of the Italian neo-realism photography.

So, without a major record label to back her and with no 'smash' lead single in the vein of both 'Sweet About Me' and 'On A Mission', does this album hold up as well as the others? In short, the answer is simply yes. I can't help but feel like this is Gabriella's most personal album to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature new sound. 3 Dec 2013
By T. Dar
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
'The Sting' is a much more mature, mellow and moving album than Gabriella's previous album, 'Ten'. Although I enjoyed 'Ten', in particular the stunning 'Defender', 'The Sting' definitely provides more substance. I've only listened to it a couple of times so far, but I would definitely recommend it. It contains a lot of soul and thought. Gabriella Cilmi is definitely an underrated and often overlooked artist (like many talented Australians, unfortunately).

2.0 out of 5 stars sure ain't for us 13 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
TEN, being a TEN, was a high key upbeat favorite CD on every driving trip of ours.
THE STING goes down an opposite avenue. It's just way too mellow, way too weird, not for us.

We understood that Cilmi felt that TEN was simply not her way to go, and that's all fair,
but the down beat of THE STING sure ain't for us.
Next time young and talented Gabriella puts a new CD out we'll just make sure we listen to
the whole thing in the store before we part with our cash on a leap of faith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good 8 Dec 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I liked this album. It's a departure from her previous works which is nice, and the album is suited to played all the way through. However, I find that some of the songs can get a bit same-y. But I would recommend this if you like her music, but it's not necessarily for everyone.
