Top Customer Reviews
This album is her most consistent offering and really showcases her beautiful voice, thoughtful, often moving and seemingly personal lyrics, all enveloped in emotive melodies and arrangements.
The production and sound is full and balanced with a great 'band' feel ; overall this is an upbeat album with more powerful vocals than her last album and has memorable tunes- not one song is filler and you'll want to play it again and again. In my opinion she is amongst the best female vocalists of all time: timbre, phrasing and emotion. Forget the fakes- she is the real thing!
I'm lost for words really! 'High Energy Performance'? If you'd been to one of Sia's gigs then you'd understand that she's amazingly focused throughout singing her songs and then stupid and bubbly in between. She doesn't need to do any stupid dances or anything whilst singing because the quality of her songs shine through.
The album is fantastic. The arrangements and overall production and sound of the album is amazing!
I really can't say more than that.
Just, whatever you do, do not listen to the review below - Judge for yourself.
Sia is not another Amy Winehouse (thank god) she's in a different league. A much better classier league!!
I have played this album over and over and also bought her 2 previous albums (also great but very different). I like all the tracks but my favourites are 'Day too soon' (very uplifting), 'Soon we'll be found', 'Beautiful Calm Driving' (real grower) 'I go to sleep' (so beautiful - makes me cry) and 'Buttons'.
Buy it and hear someone with an amazing voice and real depths of emotion. I just love it!
Sia's voice is evidently incredible, and this album shows this off perfectly.
You know that with each song you have her heart too.
There are no 'filler' tracks in this album; every single track is magical and spell-binding.
This is the kind of album you could play at a dinner party, but it has a slight left-field flair to it - its quirky & charming but elegant at the same time.
For chilling out I recommend 'Day Too Soon', 'Lullaby' (the piano is stunning & compliments her voice perfectly), and 'Beautiful Calm Driving'.
For more upbeat moments, I recommend 'Death By Chocolate' & 'Playground' (it brings you back to your childhood!)
And for those Bridget Jones 'I'm a strong woman' moments, her latest single 'Girl You Lost To Cocaine' is perfect!
'Little Black Sandals' must have a mention too, this opening track draws you into the album, and it's subtle and gorgeous.
- I could never get bored of this album; it sounds perfect in a cold January, and perfect chilling in the garden in the summer. It truly is stunning - I can't wait to hear more from her.
Some People Have REAL Problems again bears a strong, accusatory title that the tracks don't really match in terms of tone. The songs here are mostly perky and quirky love songs - it's the ballady tracks such as 'Lentil' (which featured on her live album Lady Croissant) that work best. She's keen to flex her vocal muscles (which might grate on some after a while); the vocal acrobatics and daisy-chain rhymes are good on 'Lentil'. 'Day Too Soon' is an upbeat paean to a lover, which promises to "stich you up / fill you in my heart / Honey I will knead you...". Glazed lyrics like that haven't helped accusations that she's sold out to the Starbucks set (the album is being put out on Hear Music, the label that distributes through Starbucks), but Sia and her music comes across as a more complex and interesting person than that. Thankfully there is bite - she reprises a survivalist attitude on the piano and brass-accompanied 'The Girl You Lost to Cocaine' (where she quips, "See, I'll never get laid if I'm running your life") - and she stops short of the nonsensical eccentricity that Tori Amos has embraced.
Standouts: Day Too Soon, Lentil, Little Black Sandals, I Go To Sleep (a Ray Davies cover)

Purchased on the basis of the current 2 albums, I was not disappointed. Not as commercial as the new material but a good listen.Published 17 days ago by Kenneth Gratton
This album is really good. There are many good songs. I can listen to it again and againPublished 2 months ago by Janne Mølgaard
We Are Born, This Is Acting and 1000 forms of fear are fab. This one is OK, and Colour The Small One is surprisingly crap. Nothing like the 3 great albums, AT ALL. Read morePublished 4 months ago by C. A. Wilson
