Have you ever been interested in an album that belongs to a category you would probably never listen to? I have, it's as you probably suspect, Sonique's "Hear My Cry".
Why? Because I loved "It Feels So Good", and "Sky" so I had to listen to the album. And to be honest, I don't regret it. Her voice and writing/producing ability make this record beyond genre. Sure, most of it is dance, but it's a in completely different league than what springs to mind when you normally say 'dance music'.
Her voice is strong yet very emotive and she always knows how to use it. Apart from the hit singles you'll find some more top quality dance tracks such as "I Put A Spell On You" as well as the moving "Empty (Hideaway)". It's not a perfect album - there are some less brilliant tracks, album fillers, however the highlights make "Hear My Cry" definitely worth a listen.
