Since this album supposedly leaked weeks ago, the buzz was not so favorable. I waited until the release today to take it in for what it was and, as expected, it just totally wasn't true. I don't know what people were listening to, or if they even know music enough and/or the delivery of the artist behind it, to jump to these conclusions.

The thing that divides Christina from many of her peers is the fact that she knows music--she gets it--and she knows how to craft an actual album. She's an artist, apparent in the way she reinvents her sound with every release. She takes her time, which is evident in the 3-4 year gap in between her projects. She researches her options and isn't afraid to 'go there,' which is why she rarely repeats producers and collaborators. You get that if you know music, you don't if you're more accustomed to what radio feeds you and content with the smoke and mirrors of the industry.

'Bionic' is a departure from 'Back to Basics,' and a slight throw-back to 'Stripped' only in fluidity and brass. Half of the album is a mix of dance-electronica-pop, which is the direction she hinted she was going in after the conclusion of the 'Back to Basics' era. The other, soul-adult-pop.

The set begins with the Switch-assisted 'Bionic,' which sounds like a left-over from a Santigold or M.I.A. album. It's different, probably more effective as just an album intro, but it definitely makes noise and grabs the listener. The lead single, which probably shouldn't have been her reintroduction to music listeners' ears personally, 'Not Myself Tonight,' is heavy on synths and bass, but it gets better if it alone left much to be desired.

It's been four long years since Christina Aguilera released her last studio album, 2006's "Back To Basics." Whereas that album was a throwback to artists and sounds of yesteryear, Christina goes in an entirely different direction on "Bionic." We got a preview of her new sound on "Keeps Getting Better" in 2008. Christina is an artist that I have admired for a very long time, so my expectations and excitement for "Bionic" were high, and frankly I was not disappointed. After having listened to this album for over a month now, it has become my personal favorite of Christina's. Personally, I very much enjoy the whole sound of the album. "Bionic" is sort-of like a patchwork of where popular music is right now, and where it might be headed. It also harkens back somewhat to themes that Christina explored on her "Stripped" album in 2002, such as independence, and having confidence within yourself.

Unfortunately, this album has not been received all that well with listeners, which I think is a shame. There is much to admire here. The ballads, which make up the heart of the album, are among the best ballads she has ever done. "I Am," "Lift Me Up," and "Stronger Than Ever" are amazing. The up-tempo tracks are very good as well. It's impossible for me not to love "Not Myself Tonight," "Elastic Love," "Glam," "Prima Donna," and "Vanity." Overall, I feel that "Bionic" is her most thoroughly enjoyable album from start to finish. Her amazing vocals are well utilized here. While some of the lyrics are not high are by any stretch of the imagination, the album is pure fun to listen to.

There are many different version of "Bionic" available for purchase.

While I've never considered myself a huge Christina Aguilera fan, I've always admired her ability to reinvent her image and her sound with each new record she puts out. From trashy bubblegum girly girl to classy burlesque babe, her voice and songwriting skills have proven she can successfully pull off just about anything. And that's why her latest album, Bionic has me scratching my head, because while it's obvious she's still very much a creative soul, I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what her mission is this time around. She throws a lot at you and none of it makes much sense when taken all together.

My main concern is why a mature woman (or so she seems in interviews and live footage I've seen) would intentionally dumb herself down with low-class garbage like "Woo Hoo," "Vanity," "Bobblehead" and a handful of other tracks that would better suit one of the other numerous young girls trying to break into the music industry (or the never-evolving Britney Spears). I'm all for strong women and speaking your mind, but find it ironic how she feels the need to whore herself out to get the message across. There's also a good amount of electronic voice effects, rapper guest spots, and crude lyrics, which isn't necessarily terrible, but in 2010 that approach has a very "been there, done that" connotation and is actually quite embarrassing coming from an artist like Christina Aguilera who generally is considered a visionary, not a follower. Even some of the better dance tracks, like "Desnudate" and "Not Myself Tonight" never fully amount to a distinctive, catchy melody and will probably require repeat listening to appreciate, though prove to be a lot of fun if you don't think too hard.

Where this CD really shines is the ballads, which Christina has always excelled at.
