iTunes Review

Going into her seventh album, Sia Furler wanted to try “an experiment.” She would record self-written tracks already pitched to but rejected by A-listers. “I feel like they’re hits, but nobody wanted them,” she said. She was right. This Is Acting dives headfirst into pop’s waters but its bold and beguiling songs retrain their author’s earthy edge. Sia’s cathartic voice is, as usual, the star—“Alive” and “House on Fire” pulverize all before it, big-night-out anthem “Cheap Thrills” is a ton of fun, and “Reaper” (a Kanye West co-write) is the sort of midtempo empowerment jam only she can nail so triumphantly.

Another ace album


Even better than 1000 Forms of Fear

I loved Sia's last album but this one is even better, it's got a few more upbeat songs than 1000 Forms of Fear. I genuinely can't stop listening to it! My favourite so far is Reaper, I'm so glad Sia ended up recording it rather than who it was written for. The only song I'm not taken with yet is Space Between but I've only listened to that one a few times compared to the rest of the album! Sia is unlike anyone else in the charts at the minute. Her voice is on another level, absolutely incredible!!

A Very Sold Album

It's 12 tracks of solid-pop. Sia's writing abilities and vocal talent creates the perfect recipe for a fantastic album. Given that these songs were written for other artists, (in the hope of them becoming singles) it feels like there is effort and time behind each track. Standout tracks are 'Alive', 'Move Your Body', 'Cheap Thrills' and 'Unstoppable'.
