After bumping into an advert for her first album in pretty much every website I normally visit to get my gossip or latest news in music I decided to downloaded and listen to it.
I have lost interest in “Glee” many seasons ago and even when I used to watch the show, Lea’s character Rachel always got on my nerves with that nasal voice, a terrible attitude and a face that makes you want to punch her very hard, so for me it was hard to sit down and listen a whole album just with her voice.
The album “Louder” has been released a little while ago in most countries but here in the UK it’s out today.
So, I pressed play and pray to goddess Beyoncé to help me…LOL
I have to say the album is not what I expected. A sort of nice surprise. But still doesn’t live it up for its title “Louder”.
All the fourteen tracks are well produced and all that jazz, if you know what I mean… but they aren’t loud enough.
Most tracks sound very similar to each other in many aspects.
The only track that stood out for me was a track called “Burn With You”, the rest it sounded like one long track.
I could easily imagine a whole episode of “Glee” where Lea/Rachel could sing every track that is on the album.
But it is not all bad, here are some very good points about the album:
- Is not made of cheesy pop songs
- The tracks are not like musical theatre tracks
- Lea Michele’s voice actually sounds ok, natural and she doesn’t belt note after note.
It is an ok album, nothing that we haven’t heard it before but if you are a fan you might get a bit disappointed.
I’m not buying it…. but good luck for her.
The first single was “Cannonball” and I got one word for it: DREADFUL!!!
