REVIEW - Glassheart by Leona Lewis


ChooseyLover

1,867 views

Leona Lewis - Glassheart

A woman stands against a pink-coloured brick wall. Her long dark brown flowing hair is pulled to one side and she stares directly at the camera. She has two star-shaped beauty spots, one beneath each eye. Her red and black sequin dress sits across her shoulders.

Title: GLASSHEART

Album Artist: LEONA LEWIS

Genre: R&B/Synthpop

Dr. Puke presence: MINIMUM (co-wrote "Lovebird")

 

1.- Trouble

This song is about heartbreak. But not the typical heartbreak a la "Too Little Too Late" or "Leave (Get Out)" (R.I.P. JoJo blog http://i.imgur.com/p8UAm7x.png). In this case Leona is telling her lover it's not her fault he's suffering because she already warned him. http://lh5.ggpht.com/_twrXBYPQoWk/S0A61jaOXjI/AAAAAAAACM0/WroYqC1V6e4/s128/mariah4.gif I think it's a bop and a good choice as a lead single, her vocals are great as always and the chorus is powerful but repetitive. I don't think it would grow on me to be honest.

2.- Un Love Me

 

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BALLAD! I'm a ballads lover and I must confess this one slayed me http://thepopzone.net/uploads/emoticons/default_moocry.gif Once again, it's a break up song, she was cheated but she can't break the relationship because she is still feeling things and remembering memories cry5 Fierce vocals. It's catchy, the chorus is nice but the best part are the other verses. It's a 4 minutes song but it's so short at the same time cry9 I could be listening to it all day.

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas

 

3.- Lovebird

Another break up song. I loved this one too! Lyrically I think it's wonderful the way she compares a overprotective relationship and the freedom with a bird and its wings. Nothing new really but I think it's cute. It's a pretty dum dum diddy song (I'm not mad, the chorus says this ny6) but that's it. rav2 I don't see it as a second and last single, a really bad choice.

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas11px-Star_half.svg.png11px-Star_empty.svg.png

 

4.- Come Alive

It's hard to understand the song, she pronounces well it's not that rav1 It gives me heartbreak vibes too but on the other hand it's a song that clearly talks about sex, and how she embraces the pain but I don't know what kind of pain brit10 I think it could be a good song... For Eurovision brit10 Because I swear I've listened to a bunch of similar songs in there jj4 But this one is not even catchy. brit2

5.- Fireflies

Beautiful song. I wish I could understand the meaning of this one cry1 The sun is a hole full of fireflies, there's no night, there's no day, it's all light lotus1 The melody is beautiful from the start to the end.

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas11px-Star_empty.svg.png

 

6.- I To You

Heartbreak. Again. A song that talks about a mother who loves her husband but he doesn't really love her. She's not sure about it, she would give it all for their relationship just for their babies. But on the other side she demands the true alex1 She wants to know his feelings alex1 Cute song

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas11px-Star_half.svg.png11px-Star_empty.svg.png

 

7.- Shake You Up

FINALLY. Stop ballads! Stop feeling fragile alex1 You can tell from the start that this one has nothing to do with the rest. wendy2 Her vocals are orgasmic and this one it's catchy, it gives me Circus vibes I don't know why.

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas11px-Star_empty.svg.png

 

8.- Stop The Clocks

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG. YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS cry2 A mid-tempo, R&B delight oprah2

Quote

I'd rather spend my life
Motionless with you
Than dancing with another

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas

 

9.- Favourite Scar

PERFECT oprah9 What a bop shock1 all eyes on me  in the center of the ring  in the middle of the street screaming out your name alex1 The message lets me speechless alex1 The moment when you love someone too much that even the things they hurt you are irreplaceable, that's why the song is called like that. alex1

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas

 

10.- When It Hurts

It's another mid-tempo ballad similar to Favourite Scar. Nothing new but nice.

11.- Glassheart

The "heart" of the album. It should have been the lead single. It's a meaningful song and a song you could bop to in the disco demi1 It's a shame it was only the title of the album jj3

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas

 

12.- Fingerprint

Emotional ballad to close an emotional album. cry9

Rate: 4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas4/5 estrellas

 

Bonus tracks (CD-2)

1. Colorblind

The melody is beautiful and she sounds like an angel but this verse is so cringe I can't give it 5 stars

2. Sugar

Sugar still tastes like sugar and there are a lot of songs already on the album that sound like this one jj4 Nothing special on this song.

3. Collide (Afrojack remix) with Avicii

Something different inside the album is appreciated. Nice bonus track

I loved this album! Great vocals + great lyrics + Leona's incredible voice are always a perfect mix. There are 5 or 6 songs that talk about the same, that's the only thing I didn't like. I would expect a little more of variety maybe? But the album is called Glassheart, so I think it makes sense.

Come Alive is by far my favourite song on the album, and possibly the most interesting she's done from a production standpoint, while Stop the Clocks and Favourite Scar are among my least played off the record dead1 Anyways, I think it's pretty nice for your first review, keep writing.

Well, Spirit is better but that's about it. Echo and I Am are both pretty mediocre while Glassheart is a fun album.

Also: Colorblind is a cover, so dinging her for the lyrics is a bit weird. jj4 

I had no idea rip3 That doesn't take the fact that the lyrics is what it is rip3
