OMG You lost me performance was AMAZING
OMG You lost me performance was AMAZING
Oh God the finalists' rendition of Christina-medley was horrible.
I don't really love the song 'You Lost Me,' or the entire album in general, but her voice is still phenomenal.
LOL at the haters HER VOICE ALONE speaks for itself..peopel saying she should quit or what not? If you're actually voicing your opinion doesn't that prove that she still has "some" relevance in the industry? LMFAO. Her performance of You Lost Me was chilling!! NO OTHER ARTIST OUT THERE CAN EVEN COME CLOSE TO THAT KIND OF PERFORMANCE.
On another note, I finally had a chance to listen to the album. You Lost Me, Sex For Breakfast, and Lift Me Up are my definite favorites. What can I say, she can attack mid-tempos to ballads well.
I downloaded it a couple days ago (because I'm simply too homo to wait for the release date) and it is AMAZING. Seriously, there is absolutely zero filler on the album + every song is a hit.
It is actually a different sound, yet you can't really pinpoint any genre. There are hints of just about everything. Also, Peaches, M.I.A., Le Tigre, and Sia are all on the album, and their influences are very well known/heard. The standouts are definitely "You Lost Me", "Vanity", "Elastic Love", and "Glam".
OH..and to all the Gaga disciples who are saying Christina's copying her, have you NOT seen Christina's many reinventions/experiments over the years or the video for "Fighter"?? She's always been edgy and eccentric. I don't see a Gaga influence at all, actually. If anything, I'd say she's copying Madonna's mid-90's image (the "Not Myself Tonight" video is an obvious "Human Nature" ripoff) - but let's be honest: Everyone and their grandmother copies Madonna. That's not a story or a newsflash.
Go buy the album!
Prima Donna needs to be a single now that song is awesome her vocals are on fire it reminds me of MJ's angry voice
The snippets don't do the album any justice. This album is on FIRE!
It's official...this album is a flop, critically speaking. She promised a ground-breaking album, working with all of these alternative artists like Ladytron ,MIA, Santigold, Peaches, Le Tigre, Sia.... And what do we end up with? Two atrocious singles, a video that should've never happened, and an album that is 95% filler. I'm more upset that her label though it wise to not let her have more creative control of this effort. The two singles reek of "we need what we think is a hit" record industry paranoia. It's no surprise the best songs (Elastic Love, Birds of Prey, You Lost Me...and yes, even Vanity) are also the most adventurous she's ever done. I was rooting for her, but she didn't deliver like she promised.
Blah Blah Blah the album is amazing and it's getting good reviews
by you? oh ok.
Fans have already gotten a pretty good taste of what they can expect from Christina Aguilera's upcoming album, Bionic, out June 8. In addition to the singles "Woohoo" and "Not Myself Tonight," other tracks from the disc have leaked online. Despite rumors that worries about the album's success are what prompted Aguilera to postpone her summer tour to 2011, songwriter Claude Kelly said it will be the album of the summer.
"I'm excited about Christina," Kelly told MTV News !
And by me the album is fantastic
I'm not fond of it but I wish Christina all the best with this album, I'm wondering how much her first week sales will be.
Life is a celebration. So celebrate, and live!
Another Good Review
for the record, I'm not anti-Christina. I don't see anything wrong with being critical of artists I like...cause I have a brain and stuff.
^^ lol you're not anti-Christina..yet you're already proclaiming that her album is "officially a flop" 1 week before it's actual release?! I think with Christina though she's always raising the bar with her albums, so fans & occasional listeners tend to expect a lot from her. Christina IMO got two type of fans those who favours her BALLADS (Beautiful - Hurt) heavily and those who actually enjoy the UPBEAT music (e.g. Fighter - Candyman). I honestly think those who are expressing their disappointment for this album are the ballad lovers. Her ballads on this album ARE NOT AS STRONG compared to STRIPPED & B2B. She's made songs here that even Britney Spears can actually sing (e.g. Elastic Love) and that's another reason I think why people are criticizing her, most Christina Aguilera songs are UNTOUCHABLE. Anyway I love the album coz I am obsessed with her voice, she said it from the beginning that it's about her having fun....so why not let her?!
I did say "critically speaking". I don't judge an album's success by how it charts, I'm concerned with the quality of the music. Bionic had potential to be her most interesting work yet but the content doesn't match her awesome album art. I compare this album to having a best friend who decided to wear a horrible outfit. Sometimes you just have to tell them "Girl...no. Try again" rather than lie to them and tell them they look good.
The album is amazing !!!!!
Go Xtina.. Fuck Haters !!!!!
Her performance on AI was good... not her best tho... I dont feel the song right now...
Back to Basics was what you'd consider "filler". Bionic, on the other hand, is the best example of an artist experimenting with different sounds on pretty much every track (well, the best recent example, at least) in a way that is very unique and refreshing. I'm not sure what most people consider to be a flop, but, in my opinion, this is definitely not one. It's ambitious and soulful, while still retaining Christina's style. I haven't heard "Birds of Prey" yet, but I would say 98% of this album is amazing ("Prima Donna" and "Sex For Breakfast" are the only ones that kind of stick out as the weaker links to me)...
If you're going by what music critics say, you're in trouble, because their opinions are just as extinct as those damn music videos. I'd say this album exceeds expectations!
I respect your opinion (not usually into mainstream stuff here either) it's just not my cuppa tea, is all. The concepts are great, but she gets a D+ on her execution. I only read reviews to poke fun at them these days, so my opinion is all me....just like yours is yours. You should do yourself a favor and listen to Birds of Prey as soon as possible....it's the best song on the whole thing.
nice blog, btw
A clip from Storytellers...
Vh1 Storytellers: Christina Aguilera premieres June 13th 10pm
Fighter is just her anthem...
best song hands down
I think Fighter will always be my favorite song by Christina. Unless something on 'Bionic' tops it--we'll see on June 8.
She hit like no high notes in that live performance.
I know she's a great vocalist and all but that was a shitty vocal from Christina, kinda expected more. I mean, she's Christina Aguilera for fucks sake!
Life is a celebration. So celebrate, and live!
I want these to be the singles:
1. Not Myself Tonight
3. You Lost Me
6. I Am
I was a little disappointed with her delivery on that performance too. However I think she's still trying to tone down her vocals.
The song on the Deluxe edition called Monday Morning leaked. I like it, it should have been on the regular edition to replace My Girls or something.
I love "Prima Donna" and "Vanity"....haven't given the rest of the album enough spins yet...but LOVE those 2!
I listend to I hate boys....
At first I was like WTF ??? is this aguilera ??? This is awful !!
But after a few listenings the song is hot.. I mean this is no I'm OK, Fighter... but you have to admit it's catchy, and I could see it as a huge hit over the summer...
Deluxe tracks leaked
Stronger than ever is amazing
Birds of prey is pure perfection
"Birds of Prey" + "Stronger Than Ever" are amazing! I can't believe they're not on the album....The deluxe edition will be available in stores, right??
Yeah, why Birds of Prey isn't on the first disc boggles my mind. She needs to do more songs with Ladytron.
hee hee I'll be getting my copy tomorrow!! June 4th, this has got to be her most diverse and daring album to date. I love all the songs...big mistake on NMT though, that should never have been the first single!!!!!!!!!!!
the bonus deluxe tracks are fantastic!
Bobblehead is so bad that it's amazing...lol
and Birds of Prey....no words...
I take back my first opinion of the album...I LOVE IT
lol @ Birds of Prey not being on the standard edition's track list.
Definitely a classic case of production releasing the wrong tracks as singles, and the wrong tracks on the CD.
^^Seriously. But more like a radio hit from 5 years ago.
Thanks for those booklet scans, Anton!
Shit is hot. Awesome art design...
I can't wait to buy this on Tuesday--as well as finally hear the songs. I've been holding out in excitement.
^^ I already bought the album on Itunes but I gotta have that album booklet!!!!!
Birds Of Prey is AMAZING!!! - total standout.
Bobblehead is cute love it.
Little Dreamer leaked and it's amazing
With the exception of "Bobblehead", which is puke-inducingly awful (rifling through Kesha's bag of broken, dirty tricks now? Shame on you, Xtina. ) the bonus tracks are quite incredible. It definitely wasn't an accident that the funkiest, most interesting tracks on the album ended up on the edition that will cost the consumer more. But whatever, they've successfully conned me. My love for "Monday Morning" and "Birds of Prey" has convinced me to buy a physical copy of Bionic when it comes out.
Which after listening to again and accepting for what it is (flaws and all), it's not so bad. It's actually a rather fun album. Still not as great as Back to Basics but better than Stripped and her debut.
And yes, if I wasn't sold before on the album, seeing the artwork for it definitely sealed the deal for me. It's extraordinary. Other than the songs I've previously mentioned and the ballads, it's too bad the actual album itself isn't as extraordinary.
Wow, Little Dreamer isn't even on the CD either? What the fuck? They should have cut out Polow da Don's shit and put in the Ladytron tracks. What a horrible business decision.
