      Disadvantages

      A change for the better? No. But regardless of that, Ten is still a good collection of uptempo tunes

      The relaxed jazz style of Climi's first album 'Lessons to be Learned' has been ditched in favour of a more commercial electropop beat in 'Ten'. When I say commercial, don't immediately expect my review to be bad. Alot of artists have gone commercial and it works for them. Unfortunately Climi's voice is lost and hardly identifiable under the heavy use of voice changer.

      What If You Know is a prime example on the album of a song which shows a complete change from 'Lessons', as the beat goes more uptempo and Climi opts for a more polished feel. This leaves me with mixed opinions. While the album would fit in with the current trend in the music industry (La Roux, Little Boots, Pixie Lott) I don't think that's what people want from her. Not another artist who does the same thing, but someone who tries to change the trend and bring songwriting and composing back to the forefront of the industry.

      In the end it depends on your musical taste. Do you prefer someone who gives Amy Winehouse a run for her money, or someone whose songs could just as easily of been recorded by the Sugababes?

      7 / 10 (just verging on getting three stars)
