    I decided to listen to some of her albums yesterday to fully discover them. So I listened to Anastacia, this one, Resurrection and Evolution.

    I have to admit that this one was my favorite of the 4. I remember people not being happy with this record cos it was a drastic change from what she was doing before but actually were these people right? I find this album actually very reminiscent of what she did during her first two eras but with a more modern and USA related touch.

    The song Heavy Rotation sounds like something any artists could’ve done but songs like Absolutely Positively, Same Song (which is GORGEOUS!), All Fall Down, sound very Anastacia to me.

    Concerning the other albums : Anastacia had the strong single choices but the album as a whole was kind of disappointing.
    Resurrection : LOVED her voice on this one but it’s a bit samey as a whole.
    Evolution : nice songs that again reminded me of her beginning but very hit or miss.

    I think it was a good album TBH.

    I listen to it quite regularly, but I agree it was a sell out of her artistic alblities.

    I call it love is among my favourites ever, and All Fall Down, Never gonna Love again, defeated, the way I see it and In summer are great!

    Today is 6 years since this was released, she's definitely better in a better position now! This was an awful album and a complete flop!

    Was listening again to HR yesterday, this album felt weak at first but now I realise it is pretty good, very eclectic and In Summer is one of her best tracks, it's gorgeous, it really deserved more. So looking forward to her new one, it feels like a long time since the last original album!

    Exactly!! That also sums up why it flopped so badly imo.

    LOL at my excitement in this thread! I was a 100% stan when I joined!

    My journey with this album...at first I played it like there was no tomorrow and loved it, after a while I realised the album was not that good and was lacking something big, after not listening to it for a long while, recently feel like it is a solid album in fact! It is so diverse but having said that it still is probably her weakest for me.

    Happy for a new album from her this year, can't wait!

    Yes the press she had was bad as well, poor Ana, oh well hopefully her next album is better received! She is my favourite pop star ever, it would be such a shame if she was not around any more she is fantastic! :x

    ^ I think it was just a big change for Ana fans, her image, sound was just different and different in a not so good way.

    It's so funny looking back in thread, I was so over-excited and totally non-objective, I've grown up so much since then.

    I was just reading her discography, she had 3 albums that were 3x platinum in the UK!!!... and then this one didn't even go GOLD! Why is that? Looks like a DIDO to me !

    I really like AP, but it was not a good single choice at all, the only one song on the album that would have been a good single is Defeated, however generic it is. :-? Not a bad album but definitely my least favourite from Anastacia.

    Good. Did she really release ICFY and AP simply because of his involvement? :-?

    I also must remind that during that period(I don't why) but British press was brutal to her.. They really did damaged her image a little bit..

    and yeah crazycrazy, I remember ages ago Anastacia said in goofy way on twitter, that Ne-Yo will not thouch her music ever again

    Yeah I think a few things contributed to such a drastic drop in sales. Her image was horrible as were her live performances, the lead single was very limp and it took me (a massive fan) ages to like it. Not good.

    Her lead single needs to be great this time round, if Ne-Yo gets near her, I'll shoot him down myself.

    Album is pretty good effort.. She even had quite a big promo for it also, but what went wrong were terrible single choices... I can't believe that after flop I Can Feel You they went with Absolutley Positevley to save album, what they were thinking..

    If the singles were:

    1.Heavy Rotation
    2.Defeated
    3.I Call It Love
    4.Same Song/I Can Feel You

    this would be another besteseller album for her!!

    Atleast her "Heavy Rotation" tour was moderate success and showed that people still cared for her!!
