This review is from: The Spirit Indestructible (Audio CD)
I've lover her since she released her first single. Admittedly, I wasn't overly keen on her debut but loved Folklore - such a beautiful and organic sounding album. Then came the commercial Loose which was packed with hits and brought the recognition she deserved. This album, takes the energy of Loose and the authentic of Loose and produces something magnificent.
When I first played the album I didn't take to the mixture of sounds, but after playing it throughout I came to love it. The album starts with big beat let numbers like the infectious title track and follows on with tracks like Parking Lot, which combines an infectious melody with pounding beats. High Life is a personal highlight and would of served a better lead single rather than the sometimes annoying Big Hoops. The album then takes a turn with more mid-tempo songs such as Bucket List and Miracles and then features some darker songs such as Enemy. The standard album ends on a high with Believers which is catchy and sounds like an already established anthem. But, if you're gonna buy the album pay the extra and get the deluxe version as some of the best songs, like End of the World are featured. Another personal favourite.
All in all its a solid album well worth 5 stars. Just a shame the album didn't match up to its more commercial predecessor as it is a more superior and mature album.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
