I have to admit I almost counted her out after "Back to Basics". But "Liberation" is a great album. It´s so diverse and has not one bad song on it. I also love the production and how she uses her voice.
My fave songs are:
Deserve Masochist Sick of sittin Twice Fall in line
I recently also purchased "Bionic" and "Lotus". "Bionic" is great too but very special. Christina experiments a lot and sometimes you forget it´s her and not the act who produced the track. It´s like her fan album of other artists in a way. But I really like it - especially the Deluxe tracks. "Lotus" is very overproduced and lacks individuality. And in places it´s a screamfest.
And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I hope she also performs her first album hits in the NYE medley performance. It would be a mess if she focused on Stripped tracks as always. She has performed "Fighter", "Beautiful" and "Dirrty" way too often.
In all honesty I still wish we would have gotten an original Xtina x Gaga collabo. As much as I enjoyed the DWUW remix, I feel they could have come up with something better if they would work together on original material.
