A Million Lights - Cheryl Cole
Advantages: Not one bad song on the album.
Disadvantages: Not long enough, even with the Deluxe Edition.
Usually when people say artists who I like can't sing I usually tell them to listen to their debut albums, but that's completely different for Cheryl Cole. Her third album 'A Million Lights' is her best album yet with club banging beats, her vocal ability has definitley improved compared to her debut album which was released in 2009 '3 Words' and that follow up released in 2010 'Messy Little Raindrops'.
The opening track to the album 'Under The Sun' is a perfect chilled out song which you could listen to over and over again in the summer whether, you're listening to it on your IPod by the pool/sea or blasting it from your stereo in your garden while topping up your tan, this track is definitley pop influenced, lyrics and vocals are both amazing too!
The second track and lead single 'Call My Name' is an extremely catchy dance track written and produced by Calvin Harris. The beats are banging and this song is a perfect song choice to start any party
One of my favourite songs in a long time!
Third track features one of her best friends in the industry Will.I.Am whom has worked with Cheryl on hits like 'Heartbreaker', '3 Words' and Ncki Minaj track 'Check It Out'. Together on this song is electric, if this was released as a single I have high faith that it would be a huge hit, with his unusual beats rocked in to this beautifully written dance track. Love it!
Fourth track 'Girl In The Mirror' is a funky ballad/dance track with Cheryl "picking little fights with the girl in the mirror" its a fun and rereshing song with a the breakdown of the song full of dubstep. One of the best from this album!
Fifth track 'A Million Lights' is a beautiful ballad, the beats are slick and her vocals sound absolutley fantastic in this song. I love this song.
Sixth track 'Screw You' features Wretcha 32, whom I had never heard of until I bought this CD. The vocals are amazing in this song, beats are fantastic and the producing is fantastic. This is also one the best songs off the album.
Seventh track 'Love Killer' is probably my favourite song off this album and possibly my favourite song from Cheryl's career thus far. It is influenced heavily by dubstep which works very well on this track, her vocals sound sharp and determined. A very good pop song from Cheryl Cole!
Eighth track 'Ghetto Baby' is a soft sang ballad which is a very catchy pop song, lyrically I think iys fantastic. Its one of them songs I can never see myself getting tired of.
Ninth track 'Sexy Den A Mutha' is the most similar song she has ever done that can be compared back to her Girls Aloud roots. Its a very fun upbeat song that reminds me very much of Girls Aloud's hit single 'Sexy! No No No'. One of my favourites from her 3rd album.
Tenth track 'Mechanics Of The Heart' is another ballad which really shows off her her vocal ability, for people who say she can't sing I would reccomend them this song. I love it!
Eleventh and final track 'All Is Fair' begins with unusual beats, which if you've read any of my other reviews on music I absolutley love. Its another song which shows of her vocal ability. Its quite a slow song but one of those you cant help but sing along to.
Summary: Her best album to date.
