    There are a few good tracks on this album but overall the it is far too saturated with producers to have any sort of cohesion. 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.

    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

    As much as I want to like this album, I just can't. Thing is, there are many vocals like "ooh", "yeah" (for example, from Fireflies), or "dum dum diddy" (from Lovebird) and cliché texts which make the album kinda dull at some points. Another thing is, the producers didn't do a very good job which also makes the album an utter mess.

However, the album's vocals and a few good songs (Trouble, Glassheart, Colorblind) are the album's saving grace, but there are also bad songs (Come Alive, Lovebird, I To You) and When It Hurts which is completely useless. Overall, in comparison to Spirit & Echo, this is a very huge decline from her previous albums. Expand

    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.
