One for the fans!,
This review is from: Messy Little Raindrops (Audio CD)
Would tend to agree with most reviews that have already gone up. At first listen 'Messy Little Raindrops' is a little bland and repetitive. It's not as strong as a whole as '3 Words'. However, on second listen there are some great feel good tracks that have potential as future singles. Most noticeably, 'Live Tonight', 'The Flood', 'Everyone' (with Dizzy Rascal) and 'Better to Lie' (with August). The already released 'Promise This' is probably the strongest song on the album though.
Truth is, as a standalone the album is unlikely to win over any new fans... but for the armies of devotees who already adore Cheryl Cole, they will find something to like here. And there's nothing wrong with being a fan pleaser. If nothing else, it's a good album for the car or to listen while getting ready to go out.
