    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?

    It's a brilliant album, too bad people didn't give this a chance and it flopped

    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.

    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"

    Nicola Roberts has made an assured solo debut that suggests she may outlast her flashier bandmates as a pop star of substance

    I was so proud of my Ginger Queen

    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

    #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.

    This should've been massive! It's such a fantastic pop record. Much better than everything that Cheryl has released so far...
