Album Review

Whatever happened to the little girl with the voice of an angel? Well, Charlotte Church, like everyone else, grew up and decided to move from her comfort zone of angelic soprano albums in the supposed classical area (although her product had always been aimed at the pop charts), leaving behind Voice of an Angel, Charlotte Church, and Dream a Dream and entering a crowded female pop field already inhabited by the likes of Kelly Clarkson and Girls Aloud. The first two tracks, the disco-funk-oriented "Call My Name" and "Crazy Chick," both became Top Ten singles, with the Boy George-composed ballad "Even God Can't Change the Past" and "Moodswings" not far behind. She even tried her hand at songwriting, albeit with proven successful writers as collaborators: Guy Chambers, who had worked extensively with Robbie Williams, on the pumping disco track "Let's Be Alone," the Spanish-style ethereal ballad "Casualty of Love" (on which she got an opportunity to show that her soprano voice is still intact), and the final track, "Confessional Song"; Rob Davis on the aptly titled "Easy to Forget" (which unfortunately is not a patch on another of his songs); Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head"; and Gary Barlow on the midtempo "Easy Way Out." She sang "Don't you judge me as I leave it all behind, I was the victim" on the track "Fool No More," and one wonders if that was Church's attempt to explain the complete change of musical direction. As a little girl, she had no choice about the type of material she recorded, but here she grabbed the adult mantle with both hands, and smooth pop-soul would be the future for a singer who was not such a little girl any more.

Seems a bit wannabe

The lyrics are bad and it's really bubble gum pop and unoriginal. It seems like a producers idea though I'm sad that I haven't heard anything from her lately even if it would be something like this. Her voice still sounds really good though with a lot of bad instrumentals and horrible tunes. I mean if she was going to go into the pop genre at lesast choose something slowler or with more soul so she could show off her voice.

Pretty good

I've loved Charlotte ever since I was 6 or 7, and I bought this album a few years ago. As any kid just trying to fit in, I admired Charlotte for stepping into a genre that was "cooler" than classical. But now, when it's too late, I fully appreciate the work Charlotte did before. With this, and "Back To Scratch" just recently released it is clear that The Voice of an Angel will not be returning to the classical genre any time soon. As much of a pity as that is, her lyrics are catchy and the tunes are nice. She still sounds fine, she just sounded better before. And also, they should not have trained her voice so hard, so young. That's what destroyed it. Well, I suppose this will have to do. She seems to have a bit more substance than other pop artists with songs like "Even God" and "Confessional Song." So for now, I'll just enjoy her light and frothy pop stuff and wait for the day when she hits a high C again.

NO CHARLOTTE!

Why??? Your voice still sounds good but seriously? I love the angel side of you more! Don't feel as though you need to conform to today's pop society! "Even God" and "Confessional Song" are awesome though!
