    Whether or not stadium pop is to everyone’s taste, this is it in its smartest and most human form.
  2. In sound, composition and performance, Sia captures the melodrama of teen life, with all the lunatic exaggeration it deserves.

    Just consider it a solid project from an artist who, after creating albums since the late-90s, is finally getting her recognition in front, instead of behind the curtain.

    1000 Forms of Fear is a anguished pop album for our uncertain times, crafted by an artist who is conflicted and torn by her celebrity as well as her vulnerable heart.

    Fortunately, these successes do not overwhelm 1000 Forms Of Fear, with tracks such as ‘Big Girls Cry’ and ‘Fire Meet Gasoline’ more than matching the output of her past clients in terms of captivating, powerful pop.

    Though her new material is of mixed quality, Sia’s instrument remains uniformly magnificent. She executes vocal cartwheels throughout these twelve songs, delivering great pain with even greater triumph.

    1000 Forms Of Fear certainly has the songs and contemporary sheen to make Sia a star in her own right, but it’s at the expense of both her emotional intimacy and her offbeat personality.

    Très bon album, qui s'ouvre avec Chandelier, titre aussi parfait que l'est son clip.
    Le reste de l'album est un concentré de bons titres

    Le reste de l'album est un concentré de bons titres (Elastic Heart en tête ou encore Fire Meet Gasoline).

    I remember time when Sia was a cool artist. She used to make unique music but then... Something strange happened and she released "Chandelier"I remember time when Sia was a cool artist. She used to make unique music but then... Something strange happened and she released "Chandelier" and later this awful album "1000 Forms of Fear". I can't **** understand why she hides her face. Everyone knows her face so what's the problem? Anyway, this album is an average and boring work. Compared to her old albums... this is really weak. Expand
