my random musings, now in words.
Man, this is soulful to the max.
Imma huge fan of Christina. When she came up with Back to Basics, I thought that she really did find her niche. She works on her vocals so far better in comparison to her previous record. The way she plays with the deep lyrics are intoxicating. It felt like the moment her beautiful voice came out, the time freezes. Everyone’s eyes are glued to her. She has this strong persona that makes a person suffers from inability to take her away from their eyesight. That’s how powerful she is. She commands for attention, and obviously she received it. And then Bionic took off, appearing like some sexed up version of Stripped. Don’t let me get started on her first debut single. To me, it spells ‘TMTH’. With respect to Christina, she may be well on her way into her many ‘changing’ phases. Like a re-invention. Like Madonna. Like Aerosmith, circa the 80s. A bit like Mariah, after the release of The Emancipation of Mimi five years back. It was a nice surprise though I kind of missed the old Mariah, the one who sings nice ballads. But what’s for sure, Christina will remain her absolute best with this kind of genre. The kind with soul. The kind that makes jaws drop.
