Album Review

Anastacia's sophomore outing, Freak of Nature, continues with the late-'80s bombastic funk/soul/pop revival ushered in by her debut, Not That Kind, but this time there's a few more ballads in the mix. Anastacia also leans more toward straightforward rock on this outing, while still maintaining the irresistible dance grooves that made her debut an international success. The album kicks off to a rocking start with the title track, which boasts a sinuous guitar solo reminiscent of "American Woman" and then leads into the soulful, bombastic rocker "Paid My Dues," a massive European hit. Other shining moments include the dramatic "One Day in Your Life," which follows the same formula as her previous hit, "I'm Outta Love," but better, with more soaring, epic vocals, and sounds like a rock version of a forgotten disco classic. The feel-good soul-funk vibe of "Don't Stop (Doin' It)" is a massive hit waiting to happen, and perfect for a breezy summer afternoon. When Anastacia slows down the tempo for the ballads (some organic and acoustic, some bordering on power ballads), she succeeds by utilizing her strong vocal chops without venturing into vocal histrionics. Reminiscent of Taylor Dayne at times, Anastacia successfully avoids the sophomore slump by delivering an album full of raw emotion, power, and musicality which manages to improve upon its predecessor. As a final note, the Destiny's Child-sounding "Why'd You Lie to Me" and the sassy "Don'tcha Wanna" both appear on the American version of Not That Kind. ~ Jose F. Promis, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Why is she not more popular in the United States? Anastacia's voice is amazing and the songs are all very well written and produced. Stand outs on this release are, "You'll Never Be Alone, One Day In Your Life, I Dreamed You." She is just incredible!

Introduced by Annie Lennox ... GREAT VOICE and ALBUM!

I was not personally introduced, of course, but on Annie Lennox's latest, she gives credit to Anastacia as one of the gifted artists that sings with her in the song "Sing". I imagined that Annie Lennox would only invite, admire, and credit someone with a wonderful soulful voice like hers, and although she is no Annie Lennox, she does have the soulful, smooth, rhythmic voice I hoped she was. I wish there were some newer releases, but this is worth buying if you enjoy strong female vocalists.

i like it

she has a voice from like the 80's.Like the rock/pop thing
