Stronger Deluxe Version - Kelly Clarkson
Advantages: Great Kelly Clarkson Power!
Disadvantages: Few weaker tracks I wouldn't recommend
I have always loved Kelly Clarkson's Albums since she won American Idol in 2002, and I have always purchased/downloaded the albums when they are released. I love her strong voice and her empowered songs that always seem to strike a note with how I am feeling. When "Mr Know It All" was released I knew the album was going to be good and when the Album came out on October 21st 2011 I headed straight to iTunes. Stronger is her fifth studio album and named after her second single from it "What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)".
As I bought the album off Itunes I obviously don't have a case of booklet but I will tell you what I can. The album has an image of Kelly Clarkson on it in Black and White. She has a chain around her hand which is colured gold. At the top it states Kelly Clarkson in Gold and Stronger in Silver underneath.
The album is available in CD format from Amazon, Play.com, HMV etce from £7.99 - £9.99. On Itunes it was £8.99 when first released. For the 17 tracks this is great for the money which when based on the £8.99 price works out at just £0.53 per track.
The album has 17 tracks on the deluxe edition and Kelly has been involved with writing around 50% of them
Mr. Know It All
What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)
You Love Me
Standing in Front of You
I Forgive You
The War Is Over
Let Me Down
You Can't Win
Breaking Your Own Heart
Don't you Wanna Stay
Don't be a Girl About It
The Sun Will Rise
My favourite tracks include "What Doesn't Kill You" - an upbeat mid tempo, inspiring song to show you can come back from whatever is thrown at you; Dark Side, a fairytale intro to another mid tempo song which asks you to love everyone's dark side; "Breaking your own heart", a slow Ballard that really pulls you in.
The album is full of a great variety of songs from upbeat mid tempo tunes like Don't be a Girl About It" to slow ballads with moving lyrics such as "Honestly".
I love the album with only a couple of songs I can't take to which are "Don't be a Girl About It" and "You Can't Win and find the lyrics on "Einstein" very weak compared to the other songs
Everything else is pure Kelly Clarkson class with strong inspiring lyrics and great music to suit every mood. I have found this album equal to Breakaway in its quality!
Summary: Kelly's Fifth Album shows she keeps getting "Stronger"
