Album Review

Beautiful Intentions, the third solo album by former Spice Girl Melanie C, marked a turning point in the big-voiced pop star's career; it was the first album released on Melanie's own label, Red Girl Records, following her departure from Virgin Records. Thus, Melanie C was finally allowed to don the name "Indie Spice," which she had lingering around her for some time already. The new creative control that Melanie C had over her album broadened her horizons considerably; Melanie allowed herself to fly more freely on Intentions, giving her solo music — which was always rock-tinged pop music — a sharp new look. On Beautiful Intentions, Melanie C developed her style into an aggressive pop-angled album boasting heavy beats with dramatic rock swings doused in musical cyclones of energy. She borrowed qualities from other heavy-talented rock divas such as Anastacia to produce a more bombastic sampling this time around. Individually, the majority of the songs were well suited for radio, with strong lyrical support, thanks to Melanie, who co-wrote all but one track on the album. What's most exciting is how, on the album's choice ballads, Melanie C actually soars over the music and kicks Spice booty with terrific vocals; the poignant "First Day of My Life" is the strongest individual track, as Melanie glimmers with poise over simple yet classy music. Tracks like "Next Best Superstar" and "Beautiful Intentions" showcase Melanie C best in the pop light, and the remaining ten tracks all support her stunning voice with contemporary rock synthesized with pure pop. The final product is simply dazzling; and Beautiful Intentions is without a doubt the strongest solo album by any of the Spice Girls. Truth be told, it was one of the strongest solo pop albums of 2005, regardless of artist.

Kicking Spice

This is great. I loved the first album, the second was a bit iffy but this is back to what she does best -rock. Forget spice girls, her music is makings its own name. There is a good mix of songs that make you tap your feet and feel good. This is in my most played and i think it will stay there for a while.

Top Class

Excellent Album - just as good as her previous two. Look out for the top class song 'First Day of My Life' (written by Guy Chambers) which has been released in Europe as a single and added to the re-released Beautiful Intentions album. Unfortunately, this has not yet been released as a single or added to the album in the UK.

Surely this isn't a Spice Girl?

Utterly astonishing from start to finish. If someone had played this to me without telling me who it was, I'd have refused to believe it when told. Yet here it is. I'm floored, frankly. Predjudice needs to be left at the door when you listen to this. I'm eating so much humble pie after all I said about the Spice Girls, I'm liable to choke. The girl's done good - and how!
