Disappointing at best,
This review is from: Fight Like a Girl (Audio CD)
Rehashed melodies of older more successful tracks, flat lyrics and a childish and above all a fallacious interpretation of modern mental health care make for an album which doesn't come close to the grandeur of Opheliac or even the slightly clumsy efforts of a young, new artist heard in Enchanted.
It falls far short of any of her previous work, and for an album two years in the making, it really deserves to be better. Instead we're treated to a slew of Feminism 101, lacking in any real nuance; and the continued of use of a by now slightly tired pseudo-innocent persona which doesn't serve her music nearly so well (in comparison to, say, Thank God I'm Pretty.)
The music underlying the lyrics is subtle, and itself a vast improvement on prior fare, but due to the lyric-centric structure of her non-instrumental albums and singles it's too little to save what I would be generous to call a mediocre album.
