    #17, which isn't bad but it dropped out of the top 75 the next week if I remember correctly.
    But atleast she got a lot of critical acclaim for the album.
    If only critical acclaim equated to sales.

    Such a brilliantly flawless album.

          • I'm totally surprised that this album was so well-received here. I thought that I was one of 10 people who actually love this album.

            Last October, I went to Dublin to attend Britney's concert there and I spent some days there.
            I went to HMV and I saw "Cinderella's Eyes" in a shelf. I knew that she was a member of Girls Aloud and I read in another forum that someone was totally obsessed with it. However, I bought it without knowing any songs of it (I usually buy a CD as a souvenir). When I came home and listened to it for the first time, I was totally thrilled. It's an amazing pop album with great lyrics: A great mixture of joy, fun, but also pain and I love her style. It's so varied.

            My first thought she was goin' to sound like a wannabe of Cheryl's (you know, I have to admit that I'm not into Girls Aloud at all. To my defense, I only know two songs of 'em, which I dislike).

            I read some post in this thread and I'm totally in shock. I cannot believe that British media (and people) were so rude to call her "ugly".
            Was it really so fatal? - The only source I got are the lyrics of "Stick + Stones" and wikipedia.

            However, "Cinderella's Eyes" should be a smasher. It's one of the best pop albums, which I've ever listened to!

            My personal Top 5 of this album:

            1 Yo-Yo
            2 Porcelain Heart
            3 Lucky Day
            4 Cinderella's Eyes
            5 Beat Of My Drum

            • I can't wait for a second album from her. I always wanted a solo record from her and she did more than deliver. It's an amazing album.

                      I was like WHAT at first going 'Cheryl's albums aren't that bad, what about A Million Lights :evil:' Then realised this was written last year!

                      But I've been listening to this album quite a bit lately

                      My favourite is still "i" - the lyrics are so clever and the music is awesome. I love the lyric where she sings 'I hope you all like my new direction' <3

                      Other favourites are "Porcelain Heart", "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime", "Fish Out Of Water", "Gladiator" and "Beat Of My Drum"
                      I've now met Dean Ambrose FOUR TIMES - 28/03/15, 02/04/16, 20/08/16 & 01/04/17!!

                                • Well she's working with DJ Fresh.. whether she's the first GA to record her 'part' I don't know but it looks like it's just her.

                                    • Kween Nuhdeen and Cheryl's releases are quite weak compared to this. Shame this wasn't more successful.

                                      I just read the whole thread and there was a 2011 post saying she was already working on her sophomore release?

                                            100% agreed. This album is a pop masterpiece. Everything is just perfect. The singles were great. What a same the UK public totally ignored her.

                                                I so desperately want more from her.

                                                • This album is very good, but I've always found it slightly overrated on music forums. Maybe people praise it so much in comparison to Cherhul's disasters, I don't know... As far as pop music is concerned, it's definitely no Robyn-esque masterpiece.

                                                  • Lucky Day is one of my favourite pop songs from this decade. It's just perfect.
