I think it's safe to say there's no artist like Idina. This album has a wide range of sound, with poppy, carefree tunes like Cake, meaningful ballads like Perfect Story, and songs you can belt out and have fun with like Queen of Swords. The lyrics are so meaningful, and Idina's voice is beautiful. This is definitely high-quality work.
Idina has a beautiful voice and better yet she released a good album. I like every single song and I am super impressed with this. "A" list artists aren't releasing music as good as this. I love this more and more every time I listen and it's now one of my all time favorites. Wow what a surprise. This needs good promo it is a great album. She better get promotion like Celine Dion in the 90s. That's the kind of artist Idina has the potential to be -she has a good team behind her music on this and the album cover is A+! ❤️
Bought this album a month ago. It's on repeat in my car. Great lyrics and music. She never fails to impress. It's a must purchase. The Perfect Story song will especially touch you if you've ever been dirvoced or grew up with parents that seperated. Small World and Extraordinary are my other favorites.
What can I say. There is only One Idina Menzel. This album is not perfect, but it comes close. Personally, I preferred the lower ranked, slower songs; they seemed more personal, more intimate. I am referring especially to "I see you,' and 'Extraordinary.' Well worth it.
I think Idina Menzel is on of the most talented vocalist of our time, so when I heard she was releasing a new project, I was very excited. She did not disappoint! Who said she can't transition to "Pop"? Ridiculous! This project reflects loss, new found love, self discovery....it has something for everyone. And I love that I can even run to a few of her new songs on my morning run! She will forever be a favorite, and this album will be played again and again. You will not regret your purchase. Idina could in fact sing anything in my opinion....and in this case, she hit a home run!
I'm mostly a fan of Idina's broadway work but this album sold me on her pop venture. I have a hard time picking which song is my favorite, it's all above average to me and of course couple with her vocals is a winning combination.
This is the greatest album Idina has come out with so far. Every single song is worth listening to and the range of sounds and themes present make it a great journey from beginning to end. I've had the album on repeat and don't plan on stopping anytime soon!
Some people hate this, but I don't understand why!!! She's Amazing, with suuppper awesome vocals, she needs a little bit more of attention that's all! Everybody likes Adele and her bundle of borrrrriiing voices, but Idina is something else, she's from another world! I love this Album! Idina don't you dare to feel small, old or ugly, because you are AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED!!! ❤️ people will never understand the concept of "DIFFERENT".
Idina never ceases to amaze! She's the only artist I know of who just keeps gets better! She's one of the VERY select few artists that can write their own music with beautiful, meaningful lyrics, actually have an amazing voice and range without any autotune, and is still an inspiring, humble, honest role model! This album is nothing short of magnificent! Way to go Idina, you are pure gold, just like this album!!!
As a mom and former rent head her album was made for me -- believe it or not. I can relate to so many of these songs, but queen of swords and small world are standouts. This is intensely personal and as with every Idina album there are a few throwaway songs (I mean it has been the case from day one- see straw into gold) . But above all it is intensely personal and showcases her talent so, so well. I love songs where Idina belts and she delivers so many opportunities for that. I see you is a song I thought would be trite, but I truly love it and can't wait for my daughter to hear it. Also Can't wait to see what song is from beaches. Love her and love that she remains true to herself. Everybody knows.. is a secret weapon and I hated perfect story the first time I heard it..but now I love it. Sometimes things need to be documented. Her son is lucky for that and we are all lucky for such a voice.
This sounds like Brittany Spears and a bad broadway singer in a blender. Idina Menzel is, if not, the worst singer I have ever heard and I can't understand how she became famous. She screams too much and the songs on this album are not written well at all. Maybe she should try modeling because she is a beautiful girl, just not a singer.
Idina has really outdone herself this time. I don't know how he does it, but she seems to inspire me with her music every time. From a heartfelt Extraordinary, to an inspiring Show Me, Idina's voice is going places that make for an exciting, beautiful new album. Personally, I love it. Some of my most recommended from the album: Queen of Swords Show Me Extraordinary Like Lightning
I'm a metal head by nature, and gravitate towards hard rock and pounding beats, so there should be no reason I like this CD and yet I cannot get enough of Idina's voice, it could be the worst written song on the planet and her voice could turn it into gold.
She was telling the truth when she said this album was the most personal thing shes ever written. Each and every song tells you a little bit more about her and you can even find yourself in some of these songs. They're all amazing and bring something to this amazing album!
I like Lea Michele and this sounds like her album, I guess it's because of the vocal styles, but I really don't like Showtunes turned into pop songs. I say those who like this enjoy, but I'll have to pass.
