I'm fine with her changing things up, but I think she can come better than what I've heard so far. I'm not saying she should make music to fit my taste...but I know what she's capable of when comparing some of her earlier works to this...stuff.
Even though nothing I've heard so far rocks my boat, I'm confident that I will like more of the songs not being pimped out right now. Those are usually the best anyway.
Samples are up, and it's a mess.

"Birds of Prey" sounds like it'll be amazing and a couple of the Sia tracks are really pretty, but wow what a snoozer. Whose idea was it to put all the ballads in a row?
I really want to like this album... Uh...
I guess 'Not Myself Tonight' really is the better one from this album.
'Stronger Than Ever' seems to sound okay from that tiny snippet.
I've given the snippets a listen and I don't think I like most of the up tempo stuff but I love the ballads. 'You Lost Me' seems epic just from the snippet.
And I do agree that 'Birds of Prey' seems pretty damn good just from the snippet. I knew the album would be heavy on the techno stuff but I'm not sure if I like what I hear.
I'll still buy it and give it a full listen. It is Christina. I'm pretty sure the stuff I do like will be well worth the price of the delux version. She never lets me down.
I won't listen to any of the samples, because I want to be surprised (hopefully pleasantly) when I buy the album.
You guys are scaring me with your reviews though.
LOL most of the album sounds like a giant snoozefest. All of the uptempo tracks sound the same (i.e., a mess). So far the tracks that are even remotely appealing for me are: All I Need, You Lost Me, and Birds of Prey. The rest of the album sounds like she just dropped a turd.
And btw, looks like Woohoo is indeed the next single. Great way to start off an album with 2 flop singles in a row!!
I love the studio version of Life Me Up. I thought nothing could be better than the acoustic but I was wrong. Overall I'm satisfied.
The album sounds hot I want it now
After listening to the samples of the entire album, I must say it is REALLY GOOD!!!
I particularly love the ballads/slow jams--they sound so unique. I understand that since it's the beginning of summer, RCA didn't want to release the slow songs now and instead, released the high-tempo songs, but NMT was a terrible way to introduce this album. It doesn't do justice to Bionic. What was she thinking?
Sounds good from the preview I heard. I want it now!!! I wanna hear the full song "I Am (Stripped)" like right now..
I don't understand all the hate for "Woo Hoo"....I fucking love it....i've been blasting it since it leaked....it's fun....it's dirty...it's summer
not all of her songs have to be "Beautiful"
Hearing the preview of Glam, I can understand how RCA scrapped it as the first single right away. It sounds good, but not good enough to start off the promo.
Oh god I love her sound, her ballads are chilling but the upbeat ones will infect you hahaha the byotch is rapping!!!
Yeah, I rescind my earlier comments about this album. Judging from the clips, it seems like NMT and Woohoo were the best tracks she has to offer from Bionic. The songs range from at best, mind-numblingly ordinary to at it's worst, mind-numblingly annoying. Yeah, I doubt Christina will blow me away with this set like she did with Back to Basics.
I'm just going to save myself the boredom by only downloading Woohoo, Desnudate, Sex for Breakfast, and Lift Me Up on the day of the release. The rest is too unremarkable and dull to make me consider buying the enitre thing like I planned to.
I was going to buy the CD for its packaging, but not anymore. Guess I'll just go back to getting it the usual way.
Life is a celebration. So celebrate, and live!
Thanks for posting the Youtube sampler. The Amazon samples weren't working for me.
I think it sounds f'ing hot.
I loooooove Xtinaaa !!!!
The album leaked So Fucking amazing best pop album of the year
Oh it's good. So much to choose from. I was a bit nervous. But she came through.
I'm loving this cd. The album version of "Lift Me Up"...amazing.
My Faves (songs that I can't stop repeating at the moment)
This album is so good. She sounds so different on "I Am", it didn't sound like her. I like the direction she took with this CD.
Elastic Love and Vanity were pretty cool. I’ll add them to my download only list too. Especially Vanity. Which I’m surprised I ended up loving so much. I gotta give it to X-tina, she went hard on those lyrics. Every messy queen across the country will be prancing about in their skivvies to that shit.
“If the shoe fits, wear it bitch. Read my lips, I’m a vain bitch.”
But as far as the rest of the album is concerned…
Snoozefest of the summer.
And if the beginning of “Glam” doesn’t sound like “Poker Face”, I dunno what does. The whole time I was waiting for her to bust out and go “mum, mum, mum, mah”. Like c’mon Christina, you know you want to.
I'm liking what I am hearing so far.
So i d/l it and love a few things on it.
The slower stuff is good. But overall it's a mess and every where.
It's nothing that will keep her on the map. She already had to cancel her tour.
I guess there's something wrong with me. I have been liking the majority of what I've heard so far or maybe I just like hearing her voice. The only song I have really disliked so far is NMT.
I have the album on my 4shared account. May erase it. Anyhoo I lovel ift me up and you lost me. I hate the rest. dated and nothing original. after 4 years floptina and this is what you give us?
^^ "floptina"?? Perez is datchu?!!! I thought the ticket sale only started THREE DAYS AGO? How's that indication that it's not selling? LMFAO. Lavandeira's (aka Perez) influence is bigger than I first thought!!
i m waiting for the record to be out to listen to everything
reading Perez's tweets about Christina are really pissing me off. I believe it was either his last birthday or 2 birthday's ago, didn't he have Christina perform at his party and on his site he was gushing about how much he loved her? My god, that guy is so far up Lady GaGa's ass it's disgusting...and now we have him pimping that crappy Travis Garland guy....I hate that he has such an influence on music now....I also hate how he says he discovers people...um no you don't
I'm waiting to hear the rest of the album on the day it comes out, but I've been reading reviews online and they seemed to be mixed.
Those who like it, really like it. Those who aren't into it, think it's garbage.
I wonder where I'll fall.
For some reason, I'm thinking that I'm going to love the ballads...but dislike pretty much everything else.
My overall grade for this would be a solid A. All the songs were good (with the exception of NMT). The ballads were beautiful and so were her vocals. Yeah I agree if only she didn't wait this long to put an album out because she is suffering from the Gaga comparisons. But the music should speak for itself.
Christina Aguilera Postpones North American Tour
Christina Aguilera has postponed her 20-date North American summer tour until next year, according to a statement from tour producer Live Nation. The singer was set to tour in support of her new album, "Bionic," due June 8.
"Christina Aguilera's summer tour has been moved to 2011 due to prior commitments that the singer had made to her film 'Burlesque' and to the promotion of her new album 'Bionic,'" according to a statement from Live Nation. "The singer felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour date this wasn't possible."
A new round of dates will be announced later this year, and ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.
Aguilera's trek was scheduled to begin July 15 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and wrap Aug. 19 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif. British pop singer Leona Lewis had been tapped to open the concerts.
Perez did not start floptina............. the britney fans did so get it right.
First of all not everyone listens to perez douche bag hilton. Stop being ignorant and realize that some poeple just don't plain like her and are not influenced by media idiots that you seem to know very well. (glad to know you know his last name). I don't even go on his site. you nob
The ballads are the strongest point. Lift Me Up may save her but other than that it's a stinker of an album
The Britney stans and the monsters are coming for that ass. Poor her.
even the media is throwing down
I don't know if any of you have seen this, but Christina has addressed the rumors/drama that people are making, and her thoughts on her contemporaries...
I would like to take a moment to clarify something that has been brought to my attention this morning. It is very easy for comments to be taken out of context and create unnecessary drama-especially between us women. So I would like to tell you all directly so my words can not be misconstrued to sell someone else’s story…I have absolutely nothing against Lady Gaga or any other female artist in this business.
Read the rest here
I LOVE this effing album.
Vanity is the hottest shit I have heard since Britney Spears "Toxic"
Not feeling a lot of the album after my first listen.....still LOVE Woohoo.....digging Vanity....need to give the album another listen though
Vanity & I AM & Prima Donna are the shit
I'm loving Prima Donna it screams Whitney's "Queen Of The Night" vocals to me.
Most people who dont like her would blindly judge the album without listening. Not me. I'll listen before I judge the album. I listened and admitted the ballads were good. as much as I don't like her, I give kudos where it's due and IMO the kudos go to the ballads.
On a lighter note - Lift Me Up
Inspirational and her vocals are not all over the place. Nicely restrained that the song flows really well.
You Lost Me - sounds like a 50's oldies song. Nice.
I Am - SIA <3 <3 <3 <3
I've listened to the album twice now, and I like most of the songs! Some of them might need to grow on me, the sound of the album as a whole seems pretty eclectic and very different for christina. She is an amazing artist and singer, and if you aren't into it, then bye bye! Stop complaining!
Desnudate is pure sex lol
Xtina On Idol tonight can't wait
Christina needs to quit while she's... well, obviously not AHEAD, but at least not so far behind.
Maybe things would be different for her if she possessed even a smidge of charisma; instead, she sits back and takes bitchy snipes at her more successful peers (Gaga, Britney, etc.), fueled by the overwhelming jealousy that she harbors towards them. It would be one thing if she had the charm and panache to back up her nasty attitude, but she simply doesn't. She just goes with whatever album theme her record company crams down her overactive throat -- Soul vixen! Rocker chick! Hip-hop diva! -- and masquerades as an innovator.
Oh, and Christina? You're a married, 30-year-old mother. Singing about getting drunk in the club and making out with girls doesn't look cute on you.
