Anastacia returns with a new sound, impressive!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavy Rotation (Audio CD)
It's taken a while but one of THE best vocalists of the decade and beyond has returned with her 5th album! It sees Anastacia adopt a much more mainstream and commercial image and sound than ever before! At first I was upset by this and thought that she may have lost her edgy appeal, but it isn't the case. For the most part the tracks are quite positive and upbeat and does reflect Anastacia's current feelings with her life. The 'Anastacia' album was a painful and raw album but this album sees a happy Anastacia which is quite refreshing. I must say that the album didn't instantly hit me apart from a few tracks i.e. 'The Way I See It', 'I Call It Love' and 'Heavy Rotation', but this is because Anastacia has taken yet another risk with her sound and has gone totally out of her comfort zone, so fans may take a little while to adjust to it including myself. Anastacia's voice fits perfectly with some of the more contempary sounds and some of the tracks see Anastacia use her voice in new ways i.e 'Never Gonna Again'. It is interesting to see Anastacia sing this material, even if you don't like her or aren't sure about the lead single 'I Can Feel You' give the rest of the album a listen and you'll be pleasantly suprised. This album is yet another example of her versatility, some people may complain about the very varied sound clashes on the album but I personally find it exciting to listen to!
