4.0 out of 5 stars A nice surprise, 2 May 2005
This review is from: Beautiful Intentions (Audio CD)
I must admit that I was never a huge Melanie C. However, this album was given to me as a gift so I decided to at least to give it a try. And to my pleasant surprise, I actually kind of liked it. Given that this is a self-funded album released on Melanie c's own label, it sounds fantastic. Very emotive. Very raw...very real. Opening track 'Beautiful Intentions' has a hell of a hook that makes it impossible to diss the track; follow up Next Best Superstar was a great first single but compared to the other tracks on the album it's actually outbest by practically all the other tracks (except for some which I'll get to); Better Alone kicks off the first of 4 ballads on the album. It does have a great effective chorus but the verse vocals are a bit patchy but otherwise a good track; Last Night on Earth starts off funky but ascends immediately into a upbeat rocker. One of my faves; You Will See is an ok track but it's not a good sign when the verses are better than the chorus; Never Say Never is my fave track off the whole album. very catchy and a fab chorus; Good Girl, the second of 4 ballads, is probably the best ballad out of them all. A simple yet bittersweet tune; Don't Need This is similar to Never say Never with it's very catchy chorus. Another one of my faves; Little Piece of Me is a good song but not the best; Here and Now, the third of 4 ballads, is rather dull. It never really seems to go anywhere; Take Your Pleasure is a very angsty song and the chorus very catchy; closer, and the final ballad of 4, You'll Get Yours is a bit weak but it's better than Here and Now.
Overall, it is a rather good album, and dare I say, better than anything the other Spice Girls have came up with.
How many good tracks? Nine out of 12
Best track: Never Say Never
Worst track: Here and Now
