"Who is next, who's gonna steal your crown? The Sea."

There is something distinctly autumnal about and across the new Melanie C record. The eleven tracks that make up Melanie's fifth solo record 'The Sea' are a departure from her previous two records with a strong studio productional focus. This pays off dividends.
The artwork that accompanies Chisholm's record depicts a powerful scene of the sea itself with the former Spice Girl and West End star holding a formiddle pose. It is a strong image which reflects the grit and power which listeners will hear in Melanie's vocal across the collection.
Melanie's music sits somewhere between pop and rock. Wherever this place is, it's a very beautiful, intricate and eventful place indeed. This record contains an eclectic mix of acoustic, rock, electro and pop numbers. Listening to 'The Sea' is pure escapism into beautiful string arrangements, dramatic production (courtesy of Andy Chatterley) and glorious therapeutic lyrics talking the listener through relationships with lovers, friends, colleagues and yourself. You have definitely had the mother of all 'let-outs' come the time to hit replay. Save yourself a counselor and pickup your copy today.
Stand out tracks; ballad 'Weak', poptastic ' Burn', electronic ' Stupid Game' and Bond-esque ' Get Out Of Here'.
You'll like this if you like: Alanis Morrisette, Evanescence, Savage Garden, Will Young, Depeche Mode, KT Tunstall, Adele.

Worth buying for Enemy an 8 minute masterpiece.
The rest of the album is very solid.
Best femail solo album of the year along with Nerina Pallots

I love Melanie C and have done since her Spice Girls and Northern Star days, but I can honestly and unbiasedly say this album is fantastic! Her voice is sounding stronger than ever (her time in the theatre has really paid off!) and the songs are heartfelt and meaningful, striking chords with those who listen to them. Stand out tracks are Weak, Burn, One by One, Drown and the epic Enemy - which at 8 minutes long and containing beautiful string crescendos, is possibly the best song she has ever written. I cannot wait to hear these tracks live! Here's hoping for many more years of years of tours and albums from the wonderful Melanie Chisholm.

Easily her best album yet. The production on every track is simply breathtaking, and the songs sound so fresh and atmospheric.
"Weak", "Burn" and "Drown" are instant highlights, along with the single "Think About It".
Seriously do not hesitate to buy this beautiful album!
