Album Review: Sia - 1000 Forms of Fear

Sia 1000 Forms of Fear Album Review

Sia seems to be all over my Twitter feed lately and getting a lot of well-deserved love for her latest album, 1000 Forms of Fear. Breathe Me was one of the main contenders on my angsty teenage playlist back in the day and it still never fails to move me, so I was intrigued by what she had to offer a decade later. I bought the album a while ago with very few expectations, but after a couple listens I was impressed. She’s definitely taken a more produced and pop-py route than her previous albums, but this one is an absolute treasure trove of singles still waiting to be released.

We all know Chandelier and Elastic Heart (helloo Shia LaBeouf), which are probably two of the most powerful songs on the album. Then there's a couple of real golden pop belters in the form of Free The Animal and Burn The Pages. Good luck getting them out of your head once they're in there. Then there's those songs that tug on your heart strings, like Straight For The Knife and Big Girls Cry. Each and every track demonstrates not only Sia's remarkable vocal talent but also her creativity and knack for making catchy pop songs.

As much as I love the album, I do really miss that raw sound of her older music. Her voice is unbelievable and I wish there’d been a track or two that showed it off more since her voice can often be slightly overwhelmed by the production. Having said that, I have a gut feeling that if any one of these tracks were to be released as a single it would immediately top the charts. I'm hoping it's Free The Animal or Fire Meets Gasoline.

Have you heard any of the songs on 1000 Forms of Fear? What did you think?
