Editors’ Notes

Two years removed from her breakout victory on American Idol, Sparks returns with her second full-length, Battlefield. The album is filled with pop tunes ranging from modern R&B shakers and electronic-tinged club heaters to emotional ballads, all of which feel like an extension and natural progression from her eponymous solo debut. OneRepublic maestro Ryan Tedder wrote the Battlefield title track, which finds Sparks shimmering amidst clomping drums and delicate piano before erupting on the choruses. Meanwhile, Sparks penned the album’s most breathtakingly classic tune, “Faith”, which she wrote just before performing it at President Obamas inaugural ball. For Sparks fans fond of her ability to reinterpret songs, rest assured: Sparks nails the cadences on a Fefe Dobson cover (“Don’t Let It Go to Your Head”) and sounds remarkably cocksure on body-groovin’ “S.O.S.”, which includes the chorus from Shannon’s ‘80s jam “Let the Music Play”.

Customer Reviews

Jordin Sparks & Shines

1. Walking On Snow - Instantly catchy and the best bit is "you huff and you puff but I'm not blown away" - the tune on this too is actually quite heartbreaking! 2. Battlefield - brilliant song and so dramatic the way it builds - why has this song not been a bigger hit? 3. Don't Let It Go To Your Head - One of the best songs on the album - so catchy and still has that mid-tempo No-Air kinda feel that got her career off the ground in the UK. A cover of the song with the same name by Fefe Dobson (but hers was more rocky) 4. SOS (Let The Music Play) - Can't wait to dance in the club to this song - a great up-tempo song similar to Rihanna and is the second single! 5. It Takes More - brilliant...one of those songs that really grows on you after not seeming to have a big catchy chorus - but I go round singing it all the time. 6. First point on the album where I'm not so positive - but whenever I don't instantly like a song I just keep repeating it to get to like it so thats the plan! 7. No Parade - OMG I love this song! It is brilliant - so sad and catchy at the same time! And I love all the belting high notes toward the end of the song - show that you can sing R&B and still use your range!!!! 8. Let It Rain - not such a good song - the backing track is kinda annoying and sounds like a church organ or something and its too loud! Love the verse, hate the wannabe rock chorus that isn't quite good enough! 9. Emergency (911) - A great up-tempo song - could do with a few more on the album - however the beginning of the song is terrible and should have been edited to start when the actual 1st verse begins and what the hell is with the ringtone sounds that just don't seem to have any timing about them so it's hard to sing-a-long cos the timing is terrible! 10. Was I The Only One - Lovely slow stripped down song but there is something missing. 11. Faith - Brilliant, slow ballad that builds to a belt - what more could I ask for? 12. The Cure - Fantastic - instantly popular with my eardrums! 13. Tattoo - The first single by Jordin since winning American Idol and I still love this song so much - one of my all-time most played songs ever on iTunes 14. One Step At A Time - Can't help but walk in time with the walking sounds at the start - brilliant song and single - LOVE IT 15. Papercut - reminds me of Big Girls Don't Cry kinda song - love it also! 16. Postcard - at first I thought it was forgettable and s**t but its growing!

Jordin Wont Need An S.O.S With This Album!

from start to finish, this album is very entertaining, and very easy to listen to. I must say, The only tracks from her first album which i could listen to easily were the 3 singles, but she has definately improved with her latest attempt. It's not going to top the charts over here because of lack of promotion, but it does deserve too. S.O.S seems to be a favourite by most, which is probably why its going to be the second single, however i prefer song, ''emergency 911'', which is definately one of the stand outs to me. Best tracks are: -walking on snow - Battlefield - S.O.S - No Parade - Emergency - the cure and papercut, plus of course, the two bonus tracks 'tattoo' and 'one step at a time' (Why are they included? oh well im not complaning!) I'm suprised battlefield didnt top the charts over here, its much better than JLS. GO JORDIN!!! i would recommend buying the whole album rather than picking tracks, but its your choice!!

Let the Music Play..

I still often skip a lot of the tracks after the middle mark on Jordin's first album, but there isn't an out of place or seemingly "filler" song to be found on this sophomore offering. Involvement in the writing and production of some of the songs [and alot of the leftovers from the 'Battlefield' sessions] as well as the singing, show me that Jordin really is the full package, and can only get better. Her vocals have clearly progressed and so has her style musically, still obviously with similarities to the sound that caught everyone's attention with her first CD, it's another satisfying yet kicked-up-a-notch mixture of R&B, Pop and [soft] Rock influenced music. My favourites would be the catchy and addictive opener 'Walking on Snow' and the slower yet twice as hard hitting 'It Takes More' as well as the title track and lead single. With the right promotion and more hit single choices this album could {and should} do really well, I hope she has as much success as she deserves. Apart from the UK version adding 'Tattoo' and 'One Step at a Time' which can also be found on her self-titled debut, to the tracklist, I can't say a genuine bad word about this album. Definitely worth checking out if you were a fan of her during Idol or after; even if you're not yet, it's better late than never. 5 stars. So let the music play..
