Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2008 U.S. edition of the sophomore album (entitled N.B. for the International market) by the Australian singing sensation features different artwork, track sequence and eight newly recorded tracks specifically for the US release, 'Love Like This' (featuring Sean Kingston,) Pocketful of Sunshine, Angel (all three are/will be US radio singles,) Happy, Put Your Arms Around Me, Happy, Piece of Your Heart and Freckles. Pocketful Of Sunshine is very much reflective of this 'different place' that she is in now, proving that affairs of the heart, although difficult, make for excellent song-writing material. Each track on the album explores a varying stage of the 'relationship' story, and the issues, experiences, and processes that come with these stages. Natasha worked with a stellar team of talent including Mike Elizondo of Eminem/Dre/50 Cent fame, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Greg Kurstin (Beck, Lily Allen), previous collaborators Steve Kipner, Andrew Frampton, Wayne Wilkins, Danielle Brisebois and Wayne Rodrigues and long time Madonna collaborator Pat Leonard. Sony/BMG. 2008.

On Pocketful of Sunshine, Natasha Bedingfield sounds like Joss Stone only bouncier. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, the brightness and buoyancy of this record will keep it spinning long after CDs that shoot for hipster credibility--with funked-up bells and fancy production whistles--have been deposited back into their jewel cases for all eternity. Check it out: "Love Like This," with Sean Kingston, puts its hands in the air for puppy love--the kind that'll bring you back to your "middle school kiss"--and a couple of other songs follow the youth-themed suit. "Backyard" time-travels to an idyllic childhood, while "Freckles" fleshes out, for the benefit of the insecure, the beauty in imperfections. Elsewhere, Bedingfield is her indomitably upbeat self. Opener "Put Your Arms Around Me" reeks of reassurance and tenderness. "Happy" implores would-be gloom-and-doomers to snap out of it, and while the title track doesn't wander all that far lyrically, it benefits from a chanted verse brimmed in (positive) attitude. The vibe, overall, is beach-blanket warm and blue-sky ready. Sunshine earns a pocketful, if not more, of pop-music props. --Tammy La Gorce

Shades of Jamaica, mon! Bedingfield heads off for the Caribbean with a few reggae-influenced tracks on her second US album, which is packed with music for easy listening on lazy sunny days.

Very different from her first album, this one is a little slicker in the production, and the lyrics more formulaic, but the feel-good aspect shines through in every track. A few more upbeat tracks wouldn't have hurt, but when she goes mellow, she sounds like Corinne Bailey Rae.

The hit of the album is "Love Like This" featuring Sean Kingston, an infectious reggae/hip hop track, but you should also try:

"Put Your Arms Around Me" - a sweet sing-a-long and sway number
"Pocketful of Sunshine" - a little faster track with an electro-pop beat
"Piece of Your Heart" - nice piano intro to a jazzy track
"Soulmate" - a slow pop ballad about finding that special someone
"Say it Again" featuring Adam Levine (Maroon 5) - pop song with a pleasant melody that reminds me of "Unwritten"
"Angel" - all together now, "A-N-G-E-L"
"Freckles" - sounds a bit like Katie Melua

The momentum peters out in the last few tracks, but you can try the above-mentioned songs from this pocket-sized burst of sunshine for an early taste of summer.

Natasha Bedingfield who had a smash hit worldwide with her debut album Unwritten and spawned a few memorable single hits aswell. Her debut album was a quirky cheerful pop masterpiece with funny playful lyrics about independence and single life of a young woman. Lyrics were just as good as the melodies/hooks and In my oppinion it was one of the best, if not the best Pop album of 2004. Sophmore effort N.B., which refers to her initials got a fair share of goodies aswell, but the themes are diffrent and rely more on finding Mr. Right and settle down then being young and having fun. It was well produced with good producers like Dr. Dre protege, Mike Elizondo and Timbaland protege Nate "Danja" Hills, but Steve Kipner appears again,(wrote several of her old hits) and so does Andrew Frampton. Adam Levine from Maroon 5 sang backround vocals on some songs, which is quite fascinating!. While this album got simularities with her debut, it focus further on production (and I must say it's really good) but not all songs have the greatest of hooks, but they grew on you nonetheless. Natasha Bedingfield is one of a kind with her natural and openminded attitute and ability to send out her feelings to the listener. The album was released last year in Europe, but it never saw daylight in North America, so instead she decided to hand pick the best songs out of N.B and add a few new one's for the anticipated North American release. She also decided to rename the album "Pocket of Sunshine" but like already mentioned it isn't really a new album.Read more ›

I was on a friends my space page when I saw the video, "Pocket Full Of Sunshine" and thought not only is she lovely, but this song is instantly loveable! But to be frank, that's the only song I was aware of by Natasha.

Then I started hearing it on the radio, (It's used in a commercial for a casino here in So Cal and then my wife was singing it as well)...

Fast forward---looking for a B-day gift and decided to get it for my wife, who loves it! But to be honest, if that was the only song on it that was good, I felt it would have served its purpose but today, I listened to all of it and I have to say, not only is that song great, but the entire CD is incredible! And what amazed me the most in listening to it---is she has some very powerful and meaningful messages she is delivering such as in "Freckles" and perhaps my favorite, as for content is, "Pirate Bones".

I'm really pleased that there is a performer that has an exceptional voice, who is also using her platform to send out positive messages to her fans, (particularly women), about morals and the things in life that really matter.

(A rarity these days for sure.)

Her voice I believe is outstanding, and she reminds me of various people like, Alina Smith, Lisa Stansfield, Lisa Lavie, Kelly Clarkson, Fergie (formally of the Black Eye Peas) and Teena Marie, and I just get the sense from listening to her, that she was heavily influenced by greats like Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston and Gladys Knight!

Very soulful delivery!

With a compilation of songs from her true sophomore album, N.B., only released in the U.K., and new work, Natasha Bedingfield serves up 'Pocketful of Sunshine', a refreshing album that outshines her previous album by far. Fans of Sara Bareilles and Colbie Caillat will delight over these songs. Here are my personal opinions of each:

1.) Put Your Arms Around Me- ****
This is a great opener. While the lyrics aren't very meaningful, the tune is happy and melodic. An over all of four stars because I don't enjoy the ping-y sound of the machines in the background.
2.) Pocket Full of Sunshine- ***
Again, with the unnatural machine noise! While I enjoy the song, I wouldn't listen to it on repeat, because this doesn't hold the originality of most of Natasha's songs. Three stars- I feel like it's too commercial.
3.) Happy- *****
One of the best songs I've heard of her. I like the lyrics and the message of the song. The chorus is cute and screams of summer hit. I think that this song will especially delight Sara Bareilles fans, because the intro strongly reminds me of one of her songs. However, this song is plenty original, and easy to listen to on repeat, as the song is great for a pleasing, happy spring/summer ambiance. Five stars!
4.) Love Like This- ****
A good song, but there isn't much to comment on. It's not as original as some of the other ones, but not bad. Four stars.
5.) Piece of Your Heart- ****
Different from some of the other songs on this album- less "happy summer hit", it reminds me of her previous album, Unwritten, where the songs somewhat slower and more moody. It's good that she has a variety of sons on the album. Four stars.
6.) Soulmate- *****
Again, a slower song.

Jeez Amazon, PUT UP Listening samples
You can find it on the Amazon UK version of the page. Also, I know the whole CD was on Vh1's The Leak, but I don't know if it still is. Hope that helped.
