Sia has the most amazing voice and she writes such beautiful songs.
Allison Siu
It is rare that I can listen to an album from the first song to the last without skipping a song.

So now I've listened to this CD a few times and with every listening I find something new.

Sia has had an unconventional trajectory; diagnosed with Graves disease, boyfriend killed in a car accident, addiction to drugs and alcohol, attempted suicide. Plus, she hates fame so much that she poses with a paper bag over her head, and performs with her back facing audiences. Responsible for a plethora of international pop smashers for some of pop's biggest names, and while working on many other projects, there was still time to produce an own record. As the title and cover art might reveal, Sia goes back to her darker side for this, her 6th studio album, spiralling into destructive depths of weakness, vulnerability, desperation and struggles, all returning points for her.

Longtime fans know what to expect from her, new followers are probably curious to learn about the person behind the colossal hits. Perhaps all too aware of what the public wants from her, Sia gives the public exactly what they want. She offers strong and well produced pop ballads, some uptempo tracks, and the occasional slower numbers, all accompanied with her unique and always impressive voice, the sound of someone singing for their life. She is dabbling with pop, experimenting once again with indie pop, electronica, acid jazz, soul, dance, and trip-hop. Produced by Lily Allen's former collaborator Greg Kurstin, they have sculpted a beautiful masterpiece of an album.

Her enrapturing talent and torment shines throughout "1000 Forms of fear"'s 49 minutes. Very often I found myself paying more attention to the lyric metaphors and the dramatic vocals, rather than enjoying the songs. Sia has a certain vibe in her music which, although it cannot be missed, it tends to overshadow the sonic excellence of this album.

I rarely write reviews because I just don't have the time. However, I will make time to praise Sia, on this her sixth album and honestly, one of her best. I've been a fan of Sia's long before she went "mainstream". She is absolutely one of the most underrated performers of my generation. Her voice is captivating, with raw emotion that is sometimes full of hope, pain, despair, love, longing and fear. The feelings that she envelopes the listener in are awe-inspiring in the sense that her music can make my heart swell, my eyes mist and my brain race with a plethora of ideas. I listened to her album a week ago on iTunes Radio and I was hooked. Afterwards, i listed to all of her albums (I own everything she has ever created and released) and compared her new album to those gems. I must say, her vocals on 1000 Forms of Fear just hit all of the right emotional notes, her lyrics conjure up events in one's own life and I must say, Sia deserves a standing ovation and a Grammy. It is rare that I can listen to an album from the first song to the last without skipping a song. I have listened to 1000 Forms of Fear about 15 times already, no skipping needed. Beautiful album, beautiful woman, beautiful soul...thanks Sia for being so brave and putting your heart on display, you have created, in my opinion, a masterpiece.

My taste in music varies from rock to pop to rap to metal to R&B to indie genres to pretty much anything whether its popular or unknown. Well Sia Furler, shortened to Sia is one of those rare artists. She has been around for years and is just now hitting it big in the US. I came to know her as a songwriter who penned many big hits for many huge artists. I also knew one of her early songs "Breathe Me" thanks to its masterful usage in the series finale of the show "Six Feet Under". But still, even though she was the puppeteer behind multiple successful songs, she never had her own song headlined by herself. She was almost a legend in the music business. She had a hit with "Titanium", but the credit mostly went to David Guetta. She had a hit with Flo Rida, but again, credit wasn't typically thrown in her direction. Well things took a turn when she released her catchy and powerful song "Chandeliers" along with it's viral video. Her depiction as a great singer who didn't want her face exposed during live performances also caught much attention. Well I'm the type of guy that still buys CDs on a regular basis if the CD is worth it. I needed some new music and found out this album just came out and was on sale, so I made a impulse buy with it. At first I thought I was gonna feel less masculine buying it, but after giving the album a few listens, I realized this was a modern masterpiece. Here is a track by track review.

1. Chandelier: The song is a powerful lead single with a chorus that many will cover and sing along to at concerts. Though a lot of the lyrics again are aimed at females, I still love the song and feel the chorus each time it hits. Definitely a worthy song to kick off her long awaited recognition around the world. 9.5/10

Sia's new effort "1000 Forms of Fear" may not be groundbreaking or novel given her discography but it delivers more than what any pop album these days is typically supposed to offer. The new album is a cross between "Some People Have Real Problems" and "We're Born" capitalizing on the somber and emotional moments of the former and the joyous and exuberant moments of the latter. Songs such as "Burn the Pages" and "Hostage" picks up from where "We're Born" left off and sound like the natural next steps in Sia's music direction. But the new album reveals its stronger tricks among its slower moments. "Big Girls Cry", "Straight to The Knife" and "Eye of The Needle" are heartfelt, raw, and lyrically poignant. Right on these songs, Sia's voice shows its strength by vacillating between clear notes to vague sounds in order to communicate her emotional journey. ''Elastic Heart'' is probably the best Sia song ever with its examplary chaotic combination. What makes "1000 Forms of Fear" a stellar pop record is that it remains dark even in its relatively more lighthearted songs (e.g.,"Fire Meets Gasoline"). The album indeed doesn't have a single dull moment and all of the songs have the potential to hit the airwaves. Sadly, this last point is also what precludes Sia's latest effort to be a masterpiece. The album plays too safe and it feels rather incomplete and restrained. Sia doesn't hold back to write about her feelings but this time around, she sounds almost too vulnerable and fragile to let her listeners in. Instead of going experimental on her uniqueness, she stands distant and detached and hesitates to provide the full range of emotions she is going through. If only the album featured more tracks like "Dressed in Black" and "Fair Game" but even at her most conservative and reserved version, Sia manages to pull of a strong pop album and remains as one of the most prolific and intriguing pop artists around.
