Original and Way Better Than I Expected.

Sticks + Stones - Cher Lloyd
Advantages: Its original and alot like a juke box with different genres.
Cher Lloyd is a contestant from the 2010 X Factor series. She came 4th in the series and was one of the most controversial contestants from that series. I think that she has changed quite abit since X factor she was portrayed as quite a chavy brat in X Factor but now she seems to be more calm and graceful. I think like the way she is portrayed much more now.
Her Sticks + Stones Album was released in November 2011 and consists of 10 tracks in which most of them she co-wrote. The Album to me is very original and enjoyable to listen to it has something for every mood.
1. Grow Up-Feat. Busta Rhymes 3:00
2. Want U Back 3:34
3. With Ur Love-Feat. Mike Posner 3:45
4. Swagger Jagger 3:12
5. Beautiful People-Feat. Caroline Liar 3:31
6. Playa Boi 2:52
7. Superhero 3:28
8. Over The Moon 2:58
9. Dub On The Track-Feat. Mic Righteous, Dot Rotten, Ghetts 3:53
10. End Up Here 3:30
The tracks on the album are very diverse in genre and you can see the effort she has put into her album as there is definitely something for everyone.
There is a bit of dub step for the dub step lovers with track 9 Dub On The Track having an up beat dub step instrumental with Dot Rotten featured rapping on the track.
For the pop lovers there a few pop tracks on the album including Want U Back and With Ur Love featuring Mike Posner. The Want U Back version featuring Astro from the American First series of X Factor is not available on the album because it was produced after the album was released. However that version of the single is available on iTunes for 99p.
She also proves that she can sing and not just rap in the song Beautiful People and End Up Here. These are much slower peaceful songs for people that arnt really into up beat tracks.
For me the best song on the album would have to be Superhero. I really like Superhero because the song is catchy and something that I can relate to and sing along to. Its one of my top played song on my iPod.
The worst song probably being Swagger Jagger. Swagger Jagger was the first release off the album and went to number one in the UK charts. Swagger Jagger is a conceited song that all she talks about is everyone hating on her and her being the best. This is not what won me over into getting the album as I thought after I heard this that she was definitely going to be rubbish even though the song was number one I thought she could of done better for a first release.
The thing that won me over and made me get the album is when she released on YouTube samples of all the tracks on her album. When I heard some of the songs that was on their I thought maybe it may be good and brought it. The fact that she had Busta Rhymes featured on the album too was another plus for me as I haven't really heard much from from him recently so wanted to .
The album artwork feature her lying down with her legs in the air with letters and numbers on her legs. Her name in the top left and the album name in the bottom left she has a colourful swirl running through her. I think she looks really nice on the album cover.
The album is available on iTunes for 5.99 which I think is a very good price. If your not really a fan of digital copies it available to buy on Amazon new from 5.19 for the CD copy. I think this album is aimed at young adults teens and pre teens.
Summary: Its original and alot like a juke box with different genres.
