    As a whole, Glassheart is listenable, with a few ups and downs in terms of the quality of the tracks, but does tend to keep to a very steady keel of mediocrity without much deviation.

    As it is, it's simply the next Leona Lewis album.
  3. This long-delayed third album sets out to make the Hackney diva "current" again.

    It's a sonic monument to marvel at, not a piece of art that's asking for your engagement.

    Granted, much of the record is still given over to quaking ballads like Fingerprint--an area where Adele now has the advantage--but several tracks demand attention.

    They've pushed unconvincing edginess with clubbier sounds, including the title track, an overloaded mess of dubstep breaks and house beats.

If you are a fan of songs that start with a melancholy acoustics followed by a warble-tremolo “oooh” or “yeah” vocals then you are in luck as this album has plenty. Full Review »

It could be such a hit album if 2012 if only SYCO did it a big promo. "Glassheart" — an amazing song with dubstep elements deserves more attention than it already has, imho. Everyone should listen that elecronic masterpiece. Full Review »

    Vocally, she's always on point. That's the main selling point here.
    Many speculated that this was going to be Leona's first dance album. A few electronic numbers here and there (the incredible title track and 'Come Alive') did make the cut, but the rest stuck to the ballad formula that made her a star. It's a good album overall, but much like Muse's 'The 2nd Law', the shame here is that it wasn't more electronic, more out of the ordinary, more experimental.
