Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Canadian R&B singer/songwriter. Melanie's music is an eclectic yet glossy mix of tributes to the past and contemporary R&B. Even before she released an album, she impressed Kanye West enough to be invited to be the opening act during Kanye's 2008 European tour! Universal.

I had been anticipating this album since the early summer release of the lead single, GIVE IT TO ME RIGHT and due to the push back of her release date (what is this the 4th?) I got scared that IDJ would do to Melanie what they did to Amerie and only release it overseas so I bought a copy from Amazon UK at a reasonable price.

It is a shame that Melanie hasn't gotten much shine on any morning shows or late night talk shows BUT what she has gotten is a chance to tour with Kanye this summer and has posted a few stunning live performance on YOU TUBE which gives listeners a chance to hear her stunning range.

The producers went for a certain throwback sound in producing this thematic album. The songs work well with her voice but my fear is that those who don't sample the tracks first may be deceived because the two singles released aren't representative of the whole album. Most of the tunes sound very much like nu-school Motown/Supremes tracks which lends cohesion but given the failure of a similarly presented album by Solange Knowles in the US, I'm not sure how well received Melanie Fiona's debut will be.

Having had the chance to listen to it a few times I think it's a good debut - it displays her vocal range and has a few memorable tracks, namely: GIVE IT TO ME RIGHT, G.A.M. (GROWN ASS MAN - only released on the import version), IT KILLS ME, BANG BANG, PRICELESS, MONDAY MORNING & YOU STOP MY HEART.

I love the hell out of this cd. Melanie has a voice out of this world and the songs were not the typical everyday songs that you hear on the radio.. It's nice to see real talent sing real songs.
This cd makes you nod your head and pat the steering wheel. Great cd!!!!!! The people who may not like are the ones who only get into "ass dropping on the dancefloor" music, or may think "Pop dat Coochie" was robbed of a Grammy. LOL.
Get real! This is real talent at its finest. "Learn it, love it, live it!"

It took me a few listens for me to get into the album. It was not something I loved on first listen. Partially due to the fact that the two leading singles are not representative of the sound of the album. Do not expect to hear a contemporary R&B album. Listening to the other tracks was reminiscent of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" album. However, Melanie doesn't quite master it as well as Amy was able to. Her voice is not the strongest but has to be one of the most pleasant ones currently out there today. My favorites track on the album "You Stop My Heart" meshes the backing vocals with her voice brilliantly. It's almost as though you're listening to an R&B lullaby. I believe this album has something for everyone and could be enjoyed by all ages. The Bridge has that sort of classic sound that will appeal to an older crowd, yet is still modern enough to be enjoyed by the top 40 listeners.

I heard about Melanie Fiona around the same time that I heard about V.V. Brown, and they have similar styles when it comes to their approach to music (that modernized throwback to the world of Motown). Personally, V.V. Brown is superior, but there is a lot to really love about Melanie Fiona's debut album, `The Bridge'.

For me, the best on the album is when Fiona sinks her teeth into the flow and vibe of the classics she is honoring. Songs like `Give it To Me Right' and the illustrious `Please Don't Go (Cry Baby)' are sure fire highlights. I love the way she completely sinks into the borrowed arrangement to The Zombies' recognizable `Time of the Season' (such a brilliant song), completely flipping it around and making it something new, fresh and exciting. The Motown feel really suits Fiona well, and so `Please Don't Go', which capitalizes on that spunky nature of the time and era, and Melanie's stellar vocal stylings prove to be infectious and a total blessing. I get similar chills when listening to `Johnny', a song that jumps off the page at you with a welcomed intensity.

1) Give it To Me Right
2) Johnny
3) Please Don't Go (Cry Baby)

Is it just me or does `Priceless' sound just like a Leona Lewis song? I love it, but I remember when I heard it for the first time I thought it was `Happy' at first. It's a great R&B/Pop song that hits all the marks right; perfect for radio.

4) Priceless

I love the slick vibe to `Monday Morning'. Melanie allows her soft yet commanding vocals to caress each word, so much so that you will be begging her to stay come Monday morning!

I just listened to Jazmine Sullivan's album and then I listened to Melonie's, and though I like Jazmine's music, in my opinion Melonie Fiona's, lbs for lbs, is the better of the two. The throw-back sounds are captivating and she seems to be better in touch with who she is as an artist. I love the hit " It Kills Me", and haven't loved a song that much in awhile. Kudos to the throw-back sound of Jazmine Sullivan's "I Broke The Windows Out Your Car", but Melonie has on her CD songs that could be hit after hit after hit if vigorously promoted. Good luck to all that have broken into the game. Peace!

She deserves a grammy for "It Kills Me" That's one of the most beautiful and heartwrenching songs I've ever heard.
