5.0 out of 5 stars Better than ever! April 27, 2010
By Dimi8x
Format:MP3 Music
While I was downloading this album from iTunes, I noticed a rating given to each song--and those ratings weren't all that great. "Fearless" was up there, as were the bonus tracks, but the others were in the 2-3 star category. I wondered what I had gotten myself into, until I started playing the album. This is Melissa at her best, as good as any CD of hers that I have, and better than some! Melissa is about my age, so the comment here about her sounding old is--of course (lol)--preposterous! If you love Melissa Etheridge's style, lyrics, power, and sound as much as I do, you will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! April 27, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I will make this short and sweet. I am not even a big Melissa Ethridge fan and even I have to admit that this is outstanding work. I know she has had a recent battle with cancer and I can only guess that going through that whole experience and coming out the other end ok has really rejuvenated her passion for not only life itself but also singing and songwriting as well. My wife is a big fan of hers so even tho I am not a big fan I am knowledgeable in regards to her work and this is easily her best work in a long long time. If you are an Etheridge fan then buying this album should be a no brainer and even if you aren't a big Etheridge fan you should definitely give it a listen. You just might wind up really enjoying it, I know I have.

5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album April 27, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Absolutely amazing album. She is truely one of the best artist of our time. Highly underrated her lyrics stand with Springsteen and other artists. If you don't buy the album I'm thinking maybe you shouldn't review it but hey to each their own. This album has so much emotion behind it and so much power if you LIKE Melissa and you have BOUGHT her other albums you will def like this one

5.0 out of 5 stars Melissa is Back! April 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Truth in advertising: I have been an unabashed Melissa fan since day 1. I know all the lyrics and I have seen her live 8 times. She is easily my favorite artist of all time. However... her output since Yes I Am has been... inconsistant. Your Little Secret sounded like the batch of songs that were left off Yes I Am. After a break she roared back with the amazing Breakdown, the most mature album of her career. But that was followed by Skin, a record that, while emotionally pure (as nearly all her work is) was simply lacking in good melodies or riffs and ultimately was rather forgettable. Lucky was an attempt at another big fun rock record and while the riffs were there, this time it was the lack of strong lyrics that let her down. The Awakening was a very somber record, understandably so, but not what fans of "Bring Me Some Water" may be looking for. Her seasonal album A New Thought for Christmas had some moments of a return to form, but seems trapped in its own concept.

Which brings us to her new album Fearless Love. For the first time since Breakdown, I am truly excited about a new Melissa album. Her lyrical focus has expanded beyond her usual repertoire of love, longing & loss to encompass more political concerns and her sharp turns of phrase that seem to have abandon her on Lucky and Awakening have returned. Best of all, this album ROCKS. Fearless Love may not be the sing a long that Like the Way I Do or If I Wanted to are, but it still will stick in your head and have you bopping your head along and pounding your fists. Miss California is a great indictment of the Prop 8 fiasco in California and has the added bonus of being read as a slap at former Miss California/bigot Carrie Prejean.

The band she has assembled is tight and straightforward.

5.0 out of 5 stars From start to finish, an amazing journey. April 28, 2010
By Alan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always appreciated Melissas journey. I remember being a young teenager and haphazardly finding "Yes I Am" on the floor at a friends house, popping it in and just being blown away by this voice, the music and most of all the heart put into it. I have been a fan since... and on this journey we have seen through a lot of pain, two divorces, 4 children, an Oscar, a book, countless touring hours, cancer, survival, fearlessness and finally an awakening to a more talented and amazing sense of awareness as an artist. Melissa doesnt sing about heartache anymore, she sings about life. She sings about triumph. I appreciate this. Truely one of my heroes.

This album is very driving and VERY much influenced by her own musical heros. I hear bits of John Lennon, Bob Segar and most definately U2. These three stand out most to me. Her writing is very much shot in the vein of Springsteen. Parts of this album are epic (see: "Indiana") and parts are reflective. For the very first time I have a sense of who Melissa is as a strong woman. Not who Melissa is, in love, in pain from love or in a reactive frame of mind (ie: "The Awakening"). She also incidentally is rocking out harder on this album than I have seen since "Your Little Secret" and "Yes I Am". The chord structures are the most complex I have ever seen her use. There was thought put into this record. For a while I thought we were going to have another "Breakdown" after her most recent divorce but this is not the case at all. What I got was a thoughtful record, full of melody, heart and THAT VOICE. That beautiful, powerful VOICE.

I can always tell her voice and tell her music. As a singer/songwriter, she writes from the heart and what she is feeling at the time. Read more
