Better than expected!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's A Man's World (Audio CD)
Before buying this album, I read the reviews on here. To be honest, there were not too many on the positive side - it was balanced as 3 and below with those rated at 4 & 5. So I bought it with the expectation that it would be good, but not much more. Essentially, it is Anastasia singing songs that are known to you from male lead bands or solos, sung by men. The first run through - I thought it is okay, good interpretation. The next time I listened to it, it really sunk in. Her powerful voice came through and the songs interpretation was entirely her own. I guess the problem with singing covers is that the singer is compared to the original singer, and not sounding as the original - we can easily give up. If you hear this one time, it will not sound as the originals, but give it a second try - straight through. You will be amazed, especially if you already are a fun of this little woman with that BIG powerful voice. The songs are hers and you'll start to play this more and more as I have. I think it is a great album and I am very pleased that I bought it. I am pleased that I didn't give in to the sceptics or the low score on the feedback. If you like Anastasia, or these songs - this album is super! Also, if you buy the disk, Amazon will allow you to download the digital versions anyhow - so you can put it straight onto your Ipod or other player and get going. Play it twice, and you'll love it. 5 stars from me.
