Sia Furler is a very special singer, songwriter and performer.
Her penchent for dressing up in luminous stage outfits lives on
in the wonderfully quirky cover art of her splendid new album
'We Are Born'. Her 2008 release 'Some People Have Real Problems'
remains a firm favorite in The Wolf Cave (Mrs Wolf is an especially
big fan!) and gets an airing at least once a week.

The project contains thirteen new tracks and is perhaps her most
immediately accessible work to have appeared in the listening
world so-far. The sunny pop ambience which producer Greg Kurstin
weaves in and around the polished melodies suits her well, which in
no way implies that there has been a diminuition in Ms Furler's
wonderfully left-of-centre presence, or her capacity to light up the
sky with her distinctively soulful warble. A voice in a million!
(Listen to 'Be Good To Me' for immediate elucidation of her peerless
ability to communicate the heart and spirit of a fine song).

Cheerleader territory is not more than the length of a football pitch
away with the infectious handclaps and "Wo Wo Wo" vocal intrusions of
'Bring Night'. The spirit of the eighties is alive and well in songs like
'Clap Your Hands', 'Hurting Me Now' and 'The Co-Dependent', all cracking
tunes which Ms Furler brings to life with perky and quirky aplomb.

Madonna gets a nod and a wink with our heroine's nifty cover of
'Oh Father' from the 1989 album 'Like A Prayer'. It is a terrific
interpretation of a truly splendid composition, sung with real feeling.

My money's on 'I'm In Here', however, as the album's emotional axis.

Sia is quite a diverse and intruiging artist as she seems to thrive in a multitude of genres. Her debut album "Healing Is Difficult" included mostly contemporary R&B and pop, her second and third albums "Colour The Small One" and "Some People Have Real Problems" had a darker rockier sound with mature lyrics. On the fourth release "We Are Born", Sia seems to be wanting to have fun again, with catchy tunes that have a cool pop vibe.

The album starts off well with "The Fight" and the single "Clap Your Hands" which are very catchy, instantly likeable and infectious. The second single "You've Changed" confirms that Sia is confident with a more commercial sound. "Bring Night" and "Never Gonna Leave Me" also have a very catchy pop sound. "I'm In Here" is a nice pop ballad and "The Co-Dependent" is a cool pop rock number. "Big Girl, Little Girl" is a really querky tune with a unexpected ending. The album finishes off with a pleasantly hip cover of Madonna's "Oh Father". On the negative side, some of the songs do sound a little gimmicky, with over repetitive choruses and simplified melodies as heard in "Hurting Me Now" and "Cloud", but I will say that, overall, I prefer this sound for Sia.

I think that the numerous changes in direction in just four albums could suggest that Sia is trying to find a style that suits her best. On one hand, her previous two releases included some her best work, such as "Breathe Me" and "Little Black Sandals", but also some quite dull and dreary moments. On the other hand, this release provides a more upbeat and catchy sound, but less credibility as a serious singer-songwriter. Who knows what she will choose to do next, but if indeed all these changes are not experimental, then that is what makes her unique, right?

Adelaide born Australian Sia first started out as a backing/featured singer for Crisp, jamiroquai and with some success with chill out band Zero 7. I've been a Sia fan since back then and I await with Anticipation for her new albums. Unlike her previous albums WE ARE BORN is strictly an uptempo affair. You won't find many of her haunting ballad's this time, with exception to her Madonna cover of OH FATHER which works beautifully, and the down-tempo I'M IN HERE. But uptempo is good, and this album delivers a feel good cleverly penned dance around your living room album. It's hard to pin point stand out tracks as there are no duds on this album, but the single CLAP YOUR HANDS is excellent, as well as CO-DEPENDENT, THE FIGHT and NEVER GONNA LEAVE ME are definite stand outs. Massive in America, relatively unknown in Australia and one of the most used artists in soap opera TV series that I've ever heard. Sia fans will not be disappointed and new fans will, I guarantee you, be back tracking and purchasing her previous albums. Sia is here to stay for the long haul.

Another excellent album from the hugely talented Australian. This is a lot more upbeat than the earlier Some People album.
Virtually all these songs have a beat even when they don't necessarily need one. The first ear catching song is Clap Your Hands which has an infectious melody and is bouncy. Another notable early song is Be Good to Me. You should listen out for I'm in Here which would have made a huge hit for any other established singer such as Madonna. Magnificent. You should also be impressed with Co-dependent. Such strong songs further establishing Sia as a intense song writer not to mention a significant singing talent. The album finishes off with a cover of Madonna's Oh Father which is every bit as good as the original and just highlights how good the song is.

This is an album worth getting. Not as good as 1000 Forms of Fear but shows that Sia is more than just one great album
