Product Description

Following the release of 2 UK Top 10 albums, resulting in over 2 million singles and albums sold to date, Matt Cardle returns with his third studio album.

The album goes even further than his previous efforts in showcasing his startling, inimitable 4 octave vocal range. On the album, Cardle seamlessly incorporates everything from Rock, Pop, Funk, Soul, Gospel and Blues to create his most musically diverse piece of work yet.

I'm going to stick my neck out here.... I've never bought a single Matt Cardle album before.

I read a review of this album in The Mirror, where they awarded it 5 stars. I saw it here on Amazon and took a chance.

Where has this guy been hiding? I'm not really a fan of the X Factor, so I wasn't that aware of him.

I read the album booklet only to find out he wrote, produced and played all the instruments (except violins!!!) on this album. What a prodigious talent he is!

There is a great diversity of sounds and flavours and his vocals are exceptionally good. He has a humongous vocal range and has crafted some classic melodies here. There's gut wrenching heartbreak, passion, soul, attitude and also some lighter moments when you just want to turn it up full blast and sing along.

It's almost a shame he went on X Factor because I imagine there is a lot of prejudice against him - hopefully people will look beyond that and listen to this fantastic collection of songs.

I thoroughly recommend this album.

Sincerely,

A new Matt Cardle fan.

Each of Matt Cardle's albums so far has been different but they all contain excellent music. One thing that all three albums have in common is that you don't feel like skipping any of the songs on any of them. Matt Cardle is only the second artist that I've known (after Michael Jackson) to produce such albums. His musicality, his personality and attitude to work and his fans is most admirable and these are also the factors why his work will do well in the future. The Porcelain album is a real mixture of different genres of music and shows off his talent as a fine vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and writer. The only way to do great work is to love what you do and this album certainly shows to be the case. Anyone who loves to listen to good music will love this album.

==Introduction==
The third album to come from Matt Cardle is called Porcelain and it is actually the first album of Matt's to be made available world wide. It is with great anticipation that I have been waiting for this album after Matt and his manager have been posting bits and pieces about the album for quite some time but it is released on the 28th October 2013. The album is the second to be written and produced by Matt himself and I love the way he has taken his music this way because you get to hear so much of the musician himself as opposed to manufactured music in my opinion. I have been listening to the album all week despite it not actually being released yet because he has previewed the full album on digital spy!

The album is available in CD format and of course digitally too. I treated myself to one of the 500 limited edition signed vinyl formats of the album which comes with the name of those ordered in the album sleeve as well and I plan to have it all framed and put on display somewhere at home. The physical CD copy of the album costs £9.99 on amazon whilst the download costs £7.49 currently. The cover of the CD is a gorgeous black and white shot of Matt's face with his blue eyes highlighted to make them look really piercing and lovely. It looks quite arty and cool in my opinion.

==The tracks==

I think it is important to note here that Matt plays the instruments on the album too. He learned all kinds of new skills for this album and I love that the whole thing is all about Matt. It show cases him as the talented musician he is and shows he isn't JUST a singer!

The album contains ten tracks and it is my intention to run through each of them a little within this review.

==1) In Chains (4.

There's no doubt that this is Matt's best work to date. Letters and The Fire were excellent albums but he's taken Porcelain to another level. Lyrically, musically and vocally stunning, the diversity of the songs is amazing and shows that Matt is a truly talented singer/songwriter/musician. This album deserves to be a huge success. A masterpiece.

Having heard an album sampler, I can say hand on heart this is an epic album. Following on from the success of his No.1 independant album and Top 10 OCC Porcelain is his strongest and best album to date. From haunting opener In Chains to closer Porcelain this album is pure quality. It flows like a dream and every track is superb. Each and every one of could be a single. Its hard to choose a fave. Highly recommend buying it!

... this line from the lyrics of the album's title track single-handedly sums up Matt's journey as an artist and a person. If there is a more apt way to describe the album, I honestly can't think of one right now.

Yet, I'm in two minds (or more) which label to put on this album. It's not that "Porcelain" makes Matt's previous album, "The Fire", look bad, not at all. I wouldn't even say that it tops "The Fire". Neither am I comfortable with characterizing it as being on a whole new level.
The most adequate way I can put it is that it stands apart. It branches off and out to new territory where Matt has never gone before.

What remains the same, though, is Matt's remarkable vocal range. This guy is armed with a unique voice and is definitely not afraid to use it.

For me, "Porcelain" defines a whole new category of album.
Usually, one only gets treated to something like this on a sampler that spans decades of an artist's work. Yet, this CD is not a "Best Of" sampler, it is indeed an original album. An absolute standout album at that. What "Porcelain" has to offer is a diversity of genres - not only spread across the album itself but also incorporated into each of its tracks.
This, on a side note, is the reason why neither the previews from Amazon, nor from iTunes, not even the previews on Matt's youtube channel will give you the whole picture. They are rather like ... decoys.

Once you've listened to the first track "In Chains" in full you will get an idea of what I mean.
