The truth? This album is one of a kind, consistently brilliant
on 27 November 2010
Paloma Faith, musician, actress, song writer and performer extraordinaire smashes the pop genre out the park with this wide vocal collaboration of soulful touches, of catching songs and purposeful lyrics that will delight many people of various ages and genders.
Myself, 21 year old male have listened to this frequently in the evenings to help me chill out from work, and on long walks on my phone.
Each song has a strong backing tune that always feels passionate to its purpose, such strong examples include "My legs are weak" and "Play on" missing strong beats and strong lyrics for the desired relaxation effect.
With a vibrancy and uniqueness to rival a Rihanna or a Lady Gaga, Paloma Faith is one to watch for the future, especially since she dived into acting as well.
There are 10 tracks on this record, with not a bad one on there and in complete honesty all sounding varied and unique, it is that special this album.
Released singles have not received the right chart recognition but all remain stand outs. "Stone cold sober" is a great upbeat lively smash whilst recent release "Smoke and mirrors" comes with a narrative connotation demonstrated in the music video.
Another great quality of this 2009 release is that half the songs are relaxing soulful pop songs, such as the album title track and "Broken Doll" and the others are vibrant ecstatic bouncers, "Upside down" and "New York"
I cannot recommend this album enough and I will close by saying this is quite possibly one of 3 albums I have listened to in my life where there is no bad or inconsistent track. Faith's album is vibrant, energetic and truly unique, have a listen and you will not be let down.
