I like some songs, but I think she needs to define herself as an artist.
Which is what happens often to artists who don't write their songs.

Same with Selena Gomez: it could be anyone.

Stars and Cool For The Summer are by far the best songs.

So far "Lionheart" is my favourite song. Such a great anthem. Ina Wroldsen is so gifted.

I checked the album booklet.

Laleh seems to be a superwoman. She does it all. Write, sing, many (also not standard) instruments, arrange, produce - you name it - incredible talent!

Btw - why is she at MXM and not Wolf Cousins? I could not take a photo of the booklet but the credits are pretty interesting.

On first listen the first 1/2 of the album is pretty good but then it falters and you end up not knowing exactly who she is, what she feels or what she stands for. But I gather from interviews she has an interesting story to tell so you wish the album would dig deeper. I'm gonna listen to it again though. So far I feel Selena s album is better (never thought it'd be that way, Demi is the strongest singer but that's not enough)

This album sucks other than CTFS.

Even the Falk/Yacoub track is bad, other than the heavenly pre-chorus.

agreed. her vocals are atrocious. live and in the studio. terrible vocal production. the best song next to CFTS is Lionheart. but Demi's voice just isn't right for most/all of these songs. she strains and wails and it's not pleasant.

There's some similarities... but SAMPLING?

Come on.

CFTS has one of the very best snare drums in the history of music production.

@sample discussion: if they didn't use any samples of Sleigh Bells, they did a great job of re-producing the sounds hahaha

Justice Timberlake?

Just(ice) kidding, they definitely had an impressive sound for 2007.

We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song ‘Stars.’ Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line
