This is a grower of a album. Not as good as Sticks and Stones but still a very good album. Sirens is a brilliant single and should of performed a lot better. If the album lacks anything it's a killer tune that makes the album stand out. There is a slight progress in sound from her 1st album but nothing to drastic . A very enjoyable album which will grow on you

"Sorry I’m Late” is the sophomore album by British bubble-gum pop sensation Cher Lloyd, who made a big splash in 2011 with her debut record “Stick + Stones.” Now, she is back with a 11-track CD that has the Swedish Shellback serving as executive producer. It also shows why it wasn’t a fluke that the former X-Factor UK phenomenon has morphed into a multi-platinum British singer-songwriter, as Cher wrote or co-wrote 7 of the tracks on this album that’s filled with radio-friendly electro-pop melodies.

“Just Be Mine” is the album opener, its groovy jams turning this track into an appealing bubblegum ode about an on and off relationship. Next song, the catchy pop-song “Bind Your Love” with its outstanding “When you call me, I will always find you” chorus, is one of my favorites on this album. This is followed by “I Wish,” a track that features guest vocals from American rapper T.I. These days, you have a lot of overused guest raps that can be a detriment to a great pop song, but on this kiss-off anthem, the pop and rap blend well together. The beautiful power-ballad “Sirens,” another favorite, shows a very different side of her, and it’s no wonder this was released as a single.

The bouncy and bubble-pop fun of “Dirty Love” gets suggestive as she sings about: “I need a wild boy, Something unpredictable, Go ahead and be a caveman.” The melancholy power-pop ballad “Human” is an outstanding showcase for Cher Lloyd’s vocals, revealing what she is capable off vocally. Another standout is “Sweet Despair,” a heartbreaking ballad-meets-EDM that again showcases her growth as an artist. Next, she shows that she hasn’t completely left the brat-pop behind, as we find out on “Killin’ It.” She raps and sings her way through another track with explicit lyrics, but a dance-floor ready stomper, rampant with infectious hooks and a killer chorus.

She again shows a very different side of her with the stripped-down ballad “Goodnight,” her very delicate vocals turning this into a track that would make for a great lullaby. The snappy track “M.F.P.O.T.Y.” is another return to brat-pop, as the explicit lyrics on “M.F. Party Of The Year” bear witness. A powerful teenage-girls anthem, it has snarky lines like “Keep it all in your pants, boy” to keep the brats away for when the girls just wanna have some fun on the dance floor. The album closer “Alone With Me” is another glitchy, Euro-pop/pop-rock track.

Cher might offer us an apology for being late in the form of this aptly-titled record, since the release of this album was pushed back almost a year, but it was certainly worth the wait. “Sorry I’m Late” turns out to be (so far) one of the better pop albums of this year. Because of the ballads, it might have less off the trade-marked Cher Lloyd-attitude of her debut album, but it does have enough bangers so it shouldn’t be alienating the fans of the previous CD. All in all, “Sorry I’m Late” shows her potential as a pop star who’s here for the long run.

This album shows how grown up Cher Lloyd the tracks on this album have some very grown up subject matters. I love the direction that Cher Lloyd is taking, being married has really helped her writing. Check the following tracks out:

Sirens
Human
Sweet despair
Goodnight

I first saw Cher Lloyd as she auditioned on X Factor, though not an avid viewer of the programme I found her a very excellent singer/artist I LOVE all these songs on this CD and listen to it most days. I find it superb

Such an underrated album. Cher has matured a lot in recent years, and it is evident in the voice and lyrics displayed in this album. A great mix of pop hits, R&B and emotional ballads. Would definitely recommend.

This is definitely Cher's best album, it has lots of great, catchy songs like I Wish, Dirty Love and Killin' It, but also some personal moving songs like Sirens, Goodnight and Human.
Cher wanted to move away from that "pop princess" image that she had with her last album and she's done it in a mature way.

its okay. I bought it for my daughter. personally preferred her debut though there are some reasonable tracks. a bit cheesy in places but that's okay if you're in the mood for cheesy pop.
