I wasn't convinced that "Charlotte goes pop" would work,but it certainly has.There's everything from downright raunchy to quiet and reflective.If you're thinking of buying on the basis of liking the two or three tracks you've heard on the radio,then go ahead:all twelve tracks are quality.There's no substitute for class.....and Charlotte's got it in abundance.

A wise choice to release the highly anticipated album on the back of the huge success of 'debut' single 'crazy chick'. Already being hailed as best pop single of the year, charlotte has had a fantastic start to her pop music career.
Although a risky choice to ditch the classical music and move into the mainstream market i think she has pulled it off and produced an album containing a whole range of genres and moods. A lot of pressure is on charlotte to be the saving face of pop music but she will be able to do it. Although the majority of the public love to hate her and will critisize her regardless of how good this album is, you cannot ignore her voice and songs such as future single 'call my name', the girls aloud-esque 'let's be alone' and intriging and personal 'confessional song' indicate that she is filled with confidence and maturity.
My personal favourites would have to be either the quirky upbeat 'moodswings' (brilliant lyrics) or the spanish operatic fusion 'casualty of love'
This is the perfect album to reflect charlotte's maturity, confidence and talent as both a singer and a songwriter with a album containing out-and-out pop anthems to Motown-infused tracks and heartfelt ballads which provides something for everyone to enjoy!

Charlotte Church is well known as the soprano from Cardiff who belts out the classics, selling millions of albums of hymns and light opera to crossover classics buffs. She's also pretty well known for her extra-curricular activities too, from blabbing boyfriends, weight related gaffes and other classic foot-in-the-mouth incidents.
She re-invents herself on this album, casting aside the classical façade, and releasing her inner pop star. The album lets Church show her pop, funk, rock and even flamenco talents, but she sounds like a different singer with almost every track. The opening track (and second single) "Call My Name" could have been mistaken for a Shania Twain song, and the same can also be said for the first single "Crazy Chick". They're both buzz-worthy songs, but a long, long way from "Voice of an Angel", especially the lyrics.
There's no filler material here, but listen for tracks where she sounds like Wilson Phillips, Madonna, Amy Lee and even Olivia Newton John. Slightly ballad-heavy, other tracks to watch are "Moodswings", "Finding My Own Way", the dance ready "Let's Be Alone", "Casualty of Love" and the grand finale "Confessional Song".
If this experiment pays off, it'll be extremely interesting to see which direction she goes in next.

Call My Name and Crazy Chick were good enough but the rest of the album is inventive, mature and I can't stop playing it. The R&B influence is just great and Charlotte sings it so well. What can I say... I'm impressed!

I'm quite possibly the kind of person that Charlotte Church was aiming at when she decided to take a change of direction into pop music. I would never even have considered buying her "Voice of an Angel" style CDs, purely because classical and operatic style music isn't my thing. I do, however, have a liking for well crafted pop music, so I'd always be likely to give her pop debut a chance, if it seemed worth it.

Church certainly seemed to have all the attributes to have a decent career in pop music. After all, she had the sports star boyfriend like Posh Spice and Cheryl from Girls Aloud. She had been pictured falling out of nightclubs like the Gallagher brothers of Oasis. And she has an ex-boyfriend selling all her secrets to the tabloids like…well, just about everybody, really.

Of course, living the life of a pop star doesn't mean you'll be any good at actually being one, as the winners of "Fame Academy" will be able to tell you. The only way to judge for sure if the transition is to be a successful one is on the music she produces.

For a first effort, this isn't all that bad and I suspect it will prove enough to give Church a start at a pop career, although she'll need to improve a fair amount for that career to be a long one. The variation of influences suggests she hasn't quite worked out what style is her favourite as yet.
The number of ballads, especially towards the end of the album came as a huge disappointment. Having proved with the early tracks that she can perform some real foot tapping pop songs, she then ruins the album by not having enough of them. I made the same criticism of Amy Studt's "False Smiles" album and this has gone down the same road.

Initially, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this album. I figured, she's got a good voice, it'll be at least half decent. Now that i've listened to the album from beginning to end, I have to state that this album is REALLY REALLY GOOD. I find myself bobbing along to the beat and getting caught up in the beauty and emotion of other songs. Charlotte's voice has done itself well on this album, showing her control and stunning voice. While there's no insanely high notes, the album shows her in a very comfortable range and does foray into the lower and upper parts. I would reccommend this album to anyone!
Favourite songs: Crazy Chick, Show a Little Faith, Easy Way Out, Confessional Song
