not as crap as people think, although overall still crap
on 7 March 2004
i bought this album on the strength of the second single meaning of love, which i think is a beautiful power ballad and no other song on this album even comes close to this one. there are some other track on the album which i found enjoyable to listen to though, these were emotional, which is a bit of an uptempo and quite uplifting and will probably be the third single, too fast too slow is also another good song which sounds similar to a westlife song, cast the first stone is also quite an interesting song, and finally invincible which was writen by diane warren who also wrote songs like unbreak my heart by toni braxton. the rest of the songs are pretty dull and boring and sound pretty much the same. the album also contains a terrible version feelin good which michelle sung on the show on big band week, which was actually a good performance but the album version seems to have lost that ex-factor which it had when she sung it live. which is another thing that i found about this album michelles voice doesn't sound as good on recording as it does when she sings live.
overall this album is a pretty average pop album, although there is something quite plastic sounding about this album, as michelle doesn't sound like a true popstar and the album seems a bit rushed. fans of michelle should buy this while they still can as it will probably be one of michelle's last albums unless she can come back with something good and inspiring by her next album.
