Product Description

Long-awaited debut album from the 2006 X-Factor winner. The album is a mixture of pop ballads and soulful R&B tracks and includes her first single 'A Moment Like This', the international hit single 'Bleeding Love' and 'Better in Time'.

Amazon.co.uk

Leona Louise Lewis is something of an anomaly. Not only is she pretty and endowed with a wonderfully elastic (four-octave) vocal range--she’s also a committed vegetarian and one of the few X Factor/TV talent show winners not to immediately try to capitalise on her success with an album of weak covers. Instead, her mentor Simon Cowell (and team) have coaxed Lewis into the studio with some of America’s biggest talents--Dallas Austin, Jam & Lewis--and come up with an album of weak originals. You couldn’t exactly call "Spirit" a bad album. It carries memorable melodies, some classic song-writing and, of course, Lewis’ seriously potent voice (she’s been compared to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey already). But what the album lacks is personality. Songs like "Bleeding Love" (produced by Ryan Tedder and Jesse McCartney) are technically flawless, but you’re left thinking ‘is this all the sass and sparkle a bonafide Hackney gal can muster?’ "The Best You Never Had", the Ne-Yo produced "I'm You" and many other songs here follow this play-it-safe formula, while the album’s ballads--"Footprints in the Sand", for example--are so bland even Whitney and Mariah would wince. Still, there’s no doubt Lewis is a real talent. Perhaps if she ditches the overpaid ‘superstar’ producers next time and makes the album she wants to make, we might finally hear some of her real ‘spirit’. --Danny McKenna

Leona Lewis has been away for a year working on her debut album and to sum it up: it was definitely worth the wait! There is a fantastic variety of songs on Spirit, with a nice mixture of styles merged together. Here is a track by track breakdown:

1. Bleeding Love - Amazing comeback single! Seems like the whole of the UK is loving this one. It's had so much success and deserves it! Fantastic song, very catchy, great production and vocals from Leona! 10/10

2. Whatever It Takes - One of my favourites on the album. I love the soul/gospel sound and it's also really catchy. Definitely a possible single, nice feel-good song. 9.5/10

3. Homeless - Very emotional song, Leona's vocals are just perfect and the song is great. I love the subtle sound effects of rain at the beginning and end. The music really helps with the emotion of the song. 9/10

4. Better In Time - One of the stand-out tracks! Very catchy melody and chorus, love the use of piano and strings. My only criticism would be a longer final chorus with a bit more oomph and don't fade out at the end some amazing vocals. 9.5/10

5. Yesterday - Another one of my favourites. Takes a few listens to fully appreciate it I think. I find myself listening to this song a lot, great vocals once again and I like the old-school beat. 9.5/10

6. Take A Bow - Another of the stand-out tracks and DEFINITELY has to be a single. This will be a smash-hit I just know. Ryan Tedder produced this and Bleeding Love. He is an absolute genius, simple as. 10/10

7. I Will Be - A song you wouldn't expect on a Leona album! Definitely Avril-esque. Nice to see her delve into the pop-rock genre a bit. I'd like to see a few similar songs on her next album. 8/10

If you are tempted to buy this based on the heading [Bonus Tracks] I would watch out. The UK album has 14 tracks listed and this has 13.

The UK album has the tracks listed above except tracks 5. Forgive Me and 6. Misses Glass instead of these the UK album has Homeless (UK track 3) and The Best You Never Had (UK track 11) and A Moment Like This - UK Bonus Track

Opinions seem to be divided when it comes to Leona Lewis.

Firstly, there are those who lump her in with every other reality show winner (and loser) as some kind of offence to the Gods of music. Citing `commerciality' as a criticism, they paint of picture of Leona standing over proper music's bloodied corpse, her affinity with Simon Cowell being proof enough of some Faustian pact to destroy all that is good and true.

Then there are those who fanatically proclaim Leona as a pretender to the throne, a jester in the court of Mariah - as though there were only room enough in this world for one octave-molesting uber-voice. These people seem to miss the point that the only remarkable thing about Mariah, aside from her distended ribcage and allergy to clothing, is just how long it's been since she recorded anything with a melody. Or that her gritty, R&B edginess seems increasingly disingenuous in an artist who cannot manipulate her own drinking straw.

And then there are the people who got a bit carried away, and mistakenly saw Leona's Christmas victory on the X-Factor as proof positive of her status as the second coming. The ones who misinterpreted Simon's proclamation of Leona's world class abilities as a sign - a star in the night that would lead us all to the finest fourteen tracks in the history of recorded music. Songs so powerful that they would need to be packed away in a crate and hidden in the depths of some unimaginably cavernous warehouse.

OK, I'm getting a bit carried away. Suffice it to say, I think all of these people are wrong. And the fact that Leona inspires such fierce debate is simply a sure sign that she has a big career ahead of her.

There's no doubting Leona is the best thing that the show has produced so far, but I have to say she needs better songs, this is the kind of bland music that's ten a penny out there these days, Cowell can smugly think she's the greatest thing since sliced bread but for me its both the songs and the artist that make a great album, and unless she delivers better material in the future she'll disapear just as past winners have.

It's so sad, I nearly wept! Not for the song content but for the disappointment!

I waited a whole year for this album, and now it's finally here, it's such an anticlimax. I was so hoping she would include a rendition of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', because that was the best performance EVER. Leona has such a powerful voice, and she's an incredible singer. But the songs on the album are mainly love songs.

Where are the power ballads, Leona??

I have to give her credit for 'Take a Bow', because it is a good song. I just hope that she and Simon Cowell rethink for the next album, because she's so much better than this.

I was really looking forward to this album and its awful. Bleeding love is a great song and there's no doubt Leona has a great voice and will be a great talent. Unfortunately in my opinion the rest of the tracks on the album are very weak.
