Album Review

The ten songs on Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, Paloma Faith's U.K. Top Ten debut, were touched by over a dozen producers. For Fall to Grace, the follow-up, the singer worked almost exclusively with the duo of Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran) and Nellee Hooper (Massive Attack). Naturally, as a result, it's more of a piece than merely a collection of songs. That's not to say that Gosling and Hooper don't provide Faith with a wide variety of backdrops. There's synth pop that pulses, electro-disco that just about bursts, ballads that occasionally preen and frequently roar, and grand Phil Spector-meets-Baz Luhrmann pop that teems with florid desperation. The significant uptick in theatrical flair pushes Faith to put forth maximum-effort vocal showcases that place the sound of her voice far above the meaning of the song. This steamrolls the potential for subtlety and even humor; in "Blood, Sweat & Tears," "You tell me I'm a handful, but believe me, I know" is sung with the same level of chest-beating desperation as "We can conquer the world, leave our footprints on earth." For every bullseye, like the white-hot cover of the Northern soul favorite "Let Me Down Easy," there's a wild misfire, like the societal ballad "Black and Blue" — the wrong material for a singer with a larger than life image and affected approach to singing. Commercially, she's faring well. Artistically, she's still coming into her own.

Beautiful voice

Her voice is haunting and gruff, the melodies are quixotic

Paloma is perfection

I've actually had this album since it was released in the UK thanks to some friends over there and Paloma is the real deal. She is so talented and you can feel her emotions so strongly in each song and performance. I hope that my country embraces her as much as I have and she can tour the states more extensively. Both of her albums are absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend them to everyone. xx

Flawless!!!!! ^_^

I mean every single song is a hit I love it she really did a fantastic job on this album along with her prior album I've already bought this album from oversea because I love it so much. Every song I can relate to and you can tell she put her heart into these songs the lyrics to each sing is impeccable and the feeling I get from listening to this album is beyond amazing I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ALBUM!!!!
