Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Australia is not known as the home of genre defining R&B artists. Which is probably why Australian born Sia (pronounced See-ah) has managed, in her debut album Healing Is Difficult, to avoid all the usual cliché's, generic soul diva hang-ups and slickly sanitised production, and come up with the most imaginative set of tunes since Lauryn Hill's Miseducation. Not that she sounds anything like Hill, but her melding of hip-hop beats, stripped down funk grooves and enchanting melodies is just as sublime. Her captivating and quirky voice aside, Sia's natural talent lies in her flea market, mix and match attitude; marrying the rootsy beats; and jazz grooves that underpin tracks with things that shouldn't fit--Branford Marsalis styled soprano sax flurries ("Drink to Get Drunk"), the majestic orchestral march of Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet ("Single Taken For Granted") and lilting reggae/dub grooves ("Get Me", "Insidiously" and "Fear"). Over these stray sounds she slides her supremely sexy vocals, reeling off shopping lists of emotions, fears and relationships that are as humorous as they are touching, as childish as they are wise and as innocent as they are darkly twisted. It's a bizarrely brilliant mix--from a bizarrely brilliant imagination--that puts Sia and her inspired debut in an R&B class of its own. --Dan Gennoe
