A good singer but UTTERLY appaling!,
This review is from: Hurt: The EP (MP3 Download)
Nothing against Leona at all...she genuinely has a terrific voice....but the choice of songs on this e.p....Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nail's HurtIris'Hurt' is the definative version and shows a life lived and the video is stunning and heartbreaking. 'Iris' is without doubt the Goo Goo Dolls finest song and one of the best rock anthems of ALL TIME. Neither needed covering (again) and this smacks of career desperation...too many X Factor contestants have gone down the covers route and with this and Little Mix recording 'Cannonball' all you can say is that only good things to come out of it are the songwriters (people who actually WRITE songs!!!!!) will get royalties and hopefully people will be encouraged to seek ot the original, MUCH finer versions! Leona...you used to write ALL your own stuff...please go back to that again, rather than be manipulated by management and the record companies! Will get off my soapbox now.
