This review is from: State of Mind [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
I've never been a Holly Valance fan. I really liked one on her songs though: "Naughty Girl". I liked this song so much that I bought the two single CDs of this, and to support the artist I bought her debut album and the second/last/this album, because the latter contains a bonus DVD with Naughty Girl on it.
And OMG, after listening the first album i found out that the compilation isn't bad at all, what is more it is incredibly good.
Mainly the ballads are my favorites but the other tunes are enjoyable as well.
But this review has to be about the second album "State of mind". As I said before, I bought this only because of the bonus DVD. I did not listen to it for weeks after I purchased.
And what an amazing surprise, like a fantastic, unanticipated gift, the songs turned out to be full of upbeat, catchy, poppy rhythms, fulfilled with delicate melodies of synthesizer, every track being a unique masterpiece of pop/dance style, as someone noted before, in a very resemblance with the 80s sounds.
The tracks are structured in a logical order, and almost every sound makes you dance/listen further, just can't get enough; listen over and over again.
As I am writing this, the album is playing 10th time in a row.
Very satisfied and very happy for buying it.
Sad I couldn't show more love to the artist when she was in business with music.
As I said, every track is far beyond good, but if I am permitted to chose a favorite one, then I choose 'Roll Over'.
So for everyone who like disco/dance/synt such as Kylie's or Dannii's music then this cd is a must have. It is way better than any of the mentioned artists' studio albums. Simply it has more enjoyable songs.
