Rebecca Ferguson - Fake Smiles sample track,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fake Smile (MP3 Download)
Having followed Rebecca Ferguson's career, and bought her last album, I was intrigued to see how her latest offering would compare. Thus I accepted Amazon's offer to download a sample track, Fake Smiles, from her forthcoming "Freedom" album.
Although pleasant I found the track did not exploit her unique and powerful soul voice. Whilst appreciating that this artist is trying a wider range of material to appeal to a greater audience I personally feel that this "sample" track, although perhaps not representative of the rest of the new album, may not be strong enough to tempt either existing or new fans into buying "Freedom".
I hope that Rebecca still has the potential to become a worldwide "diva" and, out of curiosity, will of course buy the new album for my collection. Whether I will be as moved by her new material as I was by her past performances is open to conjecture and I sincerely hope that fans will also buy "Freedom" - we shall see!
