I picked the album up for the song "My Hands" because it's the theme for "Final Fantasy XIII" and I'm a big fan of the game. I loaded it on my mp3 player and I loved what I heard. This is a wonderful album and I would pick this up if your a fan of Leona Lewis. It has some good beats and is full heart filled music.

'Echo' is the follow-up album to the highly successful debut, 'Spirit'. In many ways, this album titled definitely lives up to its name; this album seems more by-the-book and sticks to a strict pop music formula, making it something of a weak imitation of her first album. Don't get me wrong, 'Echo' has some tracks that show off Lewis' impressive vocal abilities. At the same time, it lacks the personality and "spirit" that made her first album resonate with so many listeners. Lewis had a hand in writing and developing more tracks on this release than her last but after a few listens, I don't at all have a sense of who she is beyond having the ability to hit a few high notes that'd make Mariah Carey watch her back.

The Good: 'Echo' sticks to what could be called Lewis' area of expertise; songs about heartache and love backed with melodramatic, sweeping, epic productions. Certain tracks sound as if they came directly from the previous album. "Brave" has the expansive, epic vibe that made Leona Lewis stand out from her competitors. With this song, it's not the production but her voice that is on display. "Broken" is another song that, production and quality wise, sounds as if it's taken from 'Spirit' and features Leona Lewis' great vocal talents and ability to deliver an emotional performance and not just sing pointless words and lyrics as many artists do. As with any successful follow-up, Lewis does venture into new territory. 'Echo' has Lewis' music experimenting more with uptempo tracks and venturing away (just a bit) from the standard emotional heartbreak that made 'Spirit' a bit dull after a few listens.

...if you've listened to her first album:

1) Vocal Perfection

2) Emotional Lyrics

3) Ballads

This album is very similar to the first, but after several listens to both, there are SUBTLE differences, including better (more mature) lyrics, epic background music, fewer love songs, and a little more focused style-wise. She does stick to the same basic formula (mid-tempo ballads with 1 stand-out track, "Forgive Me" on the first album and "Outta My Head" on this one), but it works for her.

Pretty much, you know not to expect synthesizers, A-list (or more than 1) guest appearances, rapping or rump shaking beats. So people should not judge the album based on what everyone else is doing. As for growth, this album showcases VERY sublte changes that I will not classify as better or worse than the first album. It sticks to the same formula without sounding EXACTLY like the first album (play both back to back and you will notice variations more easily).

I think this is a good album if you enjoy vocals more than dance tracks. The lyrics are mature enough for adults to enjoy while being clean enough for kids to listen to without parents blushing. Everyone doesn't have to be Madonna, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, constantly changing to more controversial and less clothed to grow as an artist.

Favorites:

Happy
I Got You
Outta My Head
Brave
Alive
Broken

P.S. This is one of those albums that you may have to listen to once or twice, shelf for a few days, then listen to again in order to love it. Unlike other albums that stand out at the first listen then slowly fade after a few weeks, this is one that you appreciate more with time.

Apparently Kelly Clarkson was rather upset with singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder as she says the song he wrote for her "Already gone" was a rip off of Beyoncé's "Halo", which he penned. It would be interesting to know how Leona Lewis feels as she's got two on her new CD "Echo". Lead-off single "Happy", and "Lost then found" (featuring Tedder's group OneRepublic) sound so much like the afore mentioned song.

The funny thing is, despite supposedly being composed and produced by an armada of songwriters and producers, much of the album is more of the same. Not bad, but nothing special either. I guess they decided to play it safe and not tinkle too much with a winning formula, seeing as her debut sold some 6 million copies worldwide.

Fortunately, some songs rise above the anonimity of the rest; "Broken" is a beautiful power ballad, "Stop crying your heart out" is a delicately sung ballad and a cover of an Oasis song (much like "Run" on her debut was a cover of a Snow Patrol hit), "Don't let me down" (a nice throbbing song with shuffling beats and a slight Timbaland feel, produced by Justin Timberlake's production trio the Y's), the power ballad "Alive", and the hidden beautiful piano ballad "Stone hearts & hand grenades" with simply beautiful dreamy harmonies and choppy strings in parts.

She does attempt some sonic variety on the upbeat synth-driven Donna Summer/La Roux-style "Outta my head", and two perfunctory Rock songs, "Love letter" and "Broken".

A good record which offers nothing beyond the anticipated. I still await the day Leona comes out from underneath mentor Simon Cowell's shadow and releases a CD more befitting of her stunning voice. As it is, this is merely an "Echo" of her debut.

Is it wrong that...
I agree 100%! I mean, I'd rather pay like $4-5 for an three track EP of new material then $15 to get two or three new songs, plus 12 or 13 that I don't need because I've already bought them. Album re-releases are the exception to "The Early Bird Gets the Worm" rule. If you're not a die... Read More

I'm listening to the album right now and I have to tell you guys, this is unbelievable!! I wasn't a big fan of hers before but really liked "Happy" from the movie Precious. The songs are gorgeous, believable and the dance tracks (yes, dance tracks) are superb! Bravo, Leona!!
