THE SILENT RELEASE!
on 23 March 2009
since winning the x-factor in the uk..things went a bit silent for a while yet over the past few months we have had the debut album re-released and 2 storming singles!
when i saw this i had to check it was the same leona as i had heard nothing about it's release and think it is only available on import!
as she says on the sleeve notes " this is the real leona lewis, and embodies the true leona lewis"
however i think it is aimed many at the usa market.
no big power ballads, instead an album of dance tracks with a retro 70's and 80's feel! think chic, sister sledge!
although the songs are good, and vocally leona is on true vocal form..it lacks the special sparkle we know and love!
its great to hear leona but its a bit mariah carey disco tempo and gets a bit lost along the way!
the album remains a bit of mystery as to its low key release, maybe the record company are not to happy with it with the uk market!
leona fans will enjoy it! but not a follow up to the debut..more an experiment!
