Album Review

What was impressive about the Natalie Imbruglia album Glorious: The Singles 1997-2007 was that Imbruglia had a writing or co-writing credit on 13 of the 14 tracks, the only one not penned by her being the one that started it all, the classic "Torn." Starting at the most unlikely source as an actress on the daytime TV soap opera Neighbours (although it had produced singing stars a decade earlier with Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan), Imbruglia had carved out a singing career with a series of pop/rock singles with superb melodies, although never managing to top the exquisiteness of the single "Torn." So after three successful albums, Left of the Middle, White Lilies Island, and the number one Counting Down the Days, her record company, BMG, released this greatest-hits compilation to sum up her career to date and also move into the future with a smattering of new tracks not previously on the three albums. All nine of her singles were included — which had already been featured on the three studio albums — as well as "Glorious," the first single released from this collection. No doubt to give an impression that this was a new album as well as a greatest-hits compilation, "Glorious" kicked off the proceedings as the opening track, followed by those nine earlier singles. The track order was a compromise reached between the artist and her record company, with the four new tracks all bringing up the rear. Of these four, "Amelia" was an ethereal, haunting ballad and "Be with You," "Against the Wall," and "Stuck on the Moon" were midtempo AOR songs. She may search another lifetime and never find another song like "Torn."

Customer Reviews

Natalie Imbruglia

Natalie sings the socks off any one of her peers. She has quietly beaverered away over the last decade, keeping out of tabloid land and producing some pure and quality music. Natalie is consistently excellent and each and every song gets better and better. Her velvety voice is beautiful and you can listen to this retrospective collection over and over. Pure gold.

Simply Glorious!

When Natalie Imbruglia burst onto the music scene in 1997, many critics were quick to write her off as another generic soap star-turned-pop star, expecting her just to fade into obscurity after an album or two. Ten years later, Natalie has exceeded everyone's expectations and is releasing the first collection of her hit singles entitled `Glorious: The Singles - 1997-2007'. Additionally, Natalie has included five new tracks, including new single `Glorious' as a taster of what is to follow. Here's a brief review of every track. 1. Glorious (23): The lead single from this collection. Very upbeat and summery, lovely breezy guitar riffs and even mentions London's `Frith Street'. One of Natalie's best single releases - 9/10 2. Counting Down The Days (23): The second single to be released of Natalie's third album of the same name. A haunting track about being far away from one's love. Chimes are thrown in towards the end which add a certain charm and there's a slightly odd whale noise throughout the song - 7/10 3. Torn (2) - Natalie's debut single and the most successful release of her career. A very angst-y track with soaring guitars and is among Natalie's best releases 9/10 4. Wrong Impression (10) - The second and most successful single from Natalie second album `White Lilies Island'. Again, a very sunny and upbeat track with fast-paced, twangy guitars, reminiscent of The Sunday's - 9/10 5. Smoke (5) - The forth release from Natalie's debut. A heart wrenching song about domestic violence (?). Here we see Natalie experimenting with electronica and showing us that she really can write brilliant pop songs and sing! 8/10 6. Shiver (8) - Natalie's `comeback' song and the biggest UK airplay hit of 2005. An insanely catchy soft rock tune that I'm sure we all will know. Definitely one of the highlights of Natalie's career - 9/10 7. Wishing I Was There (8) - The third single from Natalie's debut. A very rocky and catchy track which just screams late 90's! Arguably Natalie's most impressive early release - 10/10 8. That Day (11) - The lead single from Natalie's sophomore release. A beautiful rock-tinged song with fast-paced guitars and impressive drum work. Lyrically, this is one of Natalie's finest moments with references to depression and coming out of it - 9/10 9. Big Mistake (2) - The second single to be lifted from Natalie's debut. Another angst-ridden track about an unfaithful partner asking for forgiveness. This one builds up nicely with mid tempo verses and a huge angry chorus, eventually climaxing and leaving the listener quite satisfied indeed. Another great release - 9/10 10. Beauty On The Fire (26) - The third and final release off Natalie's least successful album, White Lilies Island. Arguably Natalie's most experimental single, combining pop, rock and electronica. Smooth angst-y verses are coupled with a sun-drenched soaring chorus and the most impressive middle-8 to create, what is known to many as the best (and most underrated) Natalie single -10/10 11. Be With You - An unusual track for Natalie. This one has a thumping baseline which carries the song. Paired with some delightful piano work, this is one of the best non-single tracks on the CD - 8/10 12. Amelia - Another impressive non-single track and is very reminiscent of `Honeycomb Child' from the `Counting Down The Days' album. A very mellow and sweet track which is nice to chill to -8/10 13. Against The Wall - The heaviest non-single track on the album. Not much to say about this one other than the fact that it makes for a decent album track - 7/10 14. Stuck On The Moon - Another piano-driven downtempo track. Natalie always produces lovely ballads and this one is no exception. A highlight amongst the new tracks - 8/10 STANDOUT TRACKS: Beauty On The Fire, Wishing I Was There, Glorious, Torn, Shiver To conclude, as you can see I rate this CD very highly, which is a label I do not give to many albums. There is honestly not a bad track on the entire CD and if you are thinking of purchasing this release, just go for it. This is certainly one of the best hits collections out there and I look forward to hearing much more of Ms. Imbruglia in the future. *****

Glorious Indeed

An amazing singles collection from such a great artist. She may not have had THAT many hits over her 10 year career but they are of quality (although I actually prefer her music from "White Lilies Island" onwards) The album cover is worth 5 stars alone, Natalie looks stunning! Recommended: - Glorious - Counting Down The Days - Wrong Impression - That Day - Beauty On The Fire 5 stars - an amazing collection, recommended!

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Natalie Imbruglia first entered the spotlight when she starred as Beth Brennan on the Australian soap opera Neighbours in the early '90s, but she became an international star in 1997 when her cover of Ednaswap's "Torn" turned into a worldwide smash. Imbruglia's version is a cornerstone of adult alternative rock, a song whose sensibility is somewhat left of center but whose pretty execution is straight down the middle. Although she didn't manage to land a follow-up of equal magnitude in the United...
