  • Summary: The fourth album for the American singer features songs written by Ne-Yo, Rodney Jerkins and Guy Chambers.

  1. Positive: 1 out of 4

  1. Despite its occasional lapses into schmaltz and generic R&B, Heavy Rotation is still a charming and versatile record that has her unmistakable voice and personality stamped all over it.
  2. It's packed with I Will Survive-type anthems designed to get women dancing around handbags. They are exhausting to listen to, but so radiant with positivity it's hard to dislike them.
  3. Ultimately, though, it's her own barnstroming commitment and sheer affability that steer things safely home. [Dec 2008, p.123]
  4. Anastacia’s voice--once described by a critic as a ‘human air-raid siren’--is still hard to love: when she reaches for the trembling high notes your first instinct is to duck under the table and lock your head between your knees.

    After being a anastacia fan FOR VERY LONG TIME, this is one of her best albums.. for me it's a little disco, dance and pop and mixed After being a anastacia fan FOR VERY LONG TIME, this is one of her best albums.. for me it's a little disco, dance and pop and mixed with a little bit of R&B my favorite is the single 'I can feel you', 'absoultely positviley', 'heavy rotation' & 'you'll be fine'', 'you'll be fine' reminds me of Secrets of the 'Freak Of Nature' album, anyway if you don't have it in your collection or digital BUY IT!!!!!!!!
