11 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The debut solo album from vocal powerhouse and Glee star Lea Michele is a luxuriant collection of big beats, torchy choruses (“You’re Mine”), and dramatic ballads (“Battlefield”). Fans of Michele’s work on Glee will recognize her emotional dynamism—even if this selection of songs eschews Broadway virtuosity for straightforward pop hooks. The hottest of the uptempo tracks—“Cannonball,” “Don’t Let Go,” and “Louder”—are layered with distorted guitars, synthesizer sparkle, and echoing production. And though these fill the majority of Michele’s debut, the ballads make an excellent showcase for her huge voice, which erupts on the moody, intense choruses of “Burn with You” and “You’re Mine.”

Greatest singer on the planet!

Is there any doubt that this girl has the most fantastic voice you've ever heard? As a fan of Garland, Streisand in her prime, even Baez in her earliest days, and Adele's "Blues," none of those ladies, excellent singers all, can hold a candle to this kid.
From the first episode of Glee and her killer rendition of "Don't Stop Believing" (ensemble), the brilliant solo in Season One's finale, "Don't Rain On My Parade," the 2012 Christmas show with "Nothing at All" and "Oh, Holy Night" (a tour de force if ever there was one!), to 2013's solo "To Love You More," Lea made me her #1 fan from the first syllable she sang!
She has the greatest "instrument" on the planet, to put it succinctly!
Awaiting March 4th and release of the full album with sweet anticipation!
Love you, Lea!

Lea Michele Louder

A truely incredible album so far, by the even more talented Lea Michele. I've been a fan since day one, and find everything dhe does to be amazing. I am not just saying that this is amazing, IT TRULEY IS AMAZING.

The three songs that are out so far (Louder, Cannonball, and Battlefeild) are the way i start my morning and the way i end them.

She has been through so much and has worked so hard for this! Very happy for her, YOU ROCK!
