Leona Lewis - Glassheart
Album Artist: LEONA LEWIS
Dr. Puke presence: MINIMUM (co-wrote "Lovebird")
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 ). In this case Leona is telling her lover it's not her fault he's suffering because she already warned him. 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 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 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 I could be listening to it all day.
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 ) but that's it. I don't see it as a second and last single, a really bad choice.
4.- Come Alive
It's hard to understand the song, she pronounces well it's not that 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 I think it could be a good song... For Eurovision Because I swear I've listened to a bunch of similar songs in there But this one is not even catchy.
Beautiful song. I wish I could understand the meaning of this one The sun is a hole full of fireflies, there's no night, there's no day, it's all light The melody is beautiful from the start to the end.
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 She wants to know his feelings Cute song
7.- Shake You Up
FINALLY. Stop ballads! Stop feeling fragile You can tell from the start that this one has nothing to do with the rest. Her vocals are orgasmic and this one it's catchy, it gives me Circus vibes I don't know why.
8.- Stop The Clocks
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG. YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS A mid-tempo, R&B delight
I'd rather spend my life
Motionless with you
Than dancing with another
9.- Favourite Scar
PERFECT What a bop all eyes on me
in the center of the ring in the middle of the street screaming out your name The message lets me speechless 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.
10.- When It Hurts
It's another mid-tempo ballad similar to Favourite Scar. Nothing new but nice.
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 It's a shame it was only the title of the album
Emotional ballad to close an emotional album.
Bonus tracks (CD-2)
The melody is beautiful and she sounds like an angel but this verse is so cringe I can't give it 5 stars
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Sugar still tastes like sugar and there are a lot of songs already on the album that sound like this one 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.
