5.0 out of 5 stars Believing in the Music... May 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Melanie C has been one to watch since she emerged solo from the pop juggernaut that was the Spice Girls in 1999 with her debut breakout "Northern Star." Since that time, much has happened, Melanie has grappled with her self-image, been dropped by her label, started her own, & become her own artist.

Melanie often was dubbed "Indie Spice" or "Rock Spice," terms that were slightly accurate were limiting, but it seemed she bought into them herself on her third album, 2005's "Beautiful Intentions." While a decent effort, "Beautiful Intentions" felt as though she was trying to prove something, her credibility, her strength, who knows? It didn't resonate with everyone.

On her second album on her own label, her fourth overall, "This Time" finds Melanie has embraced herself & it is reflected in this amazing set of songs.

Opening on the Keane inspired "Understand" Melanie weaves an emotional tapestry of musical emotions, while still layering her songs in a fashion, so that they don't run together. The title track is a soaring inspirational number, one that shows how Melanie became the vocal figurehead in the Spice Girls. "What If I Stay" is a hushed gem, that features an Alanis Morrisette inspired harmonica break, "Carolyna" is an uptempo rocker that is sure to charm any who hear it.

Her duet with Adam Argyle (writer of "Next Best Superstar") "Don't Let Me Go", is romantic and comes off as sincere rather than canned lovey dovey fluff. The first single from the record, her cover of the 1960's cult pop cut "I Want Candy" by The Strangeloves, then made infamous in the 1980's by Bow Wow Wow, is pure fun. Punchy ska-like horns and a sunny vocal delivery show that Melanie has learned to love her pop-oriented roots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually listen to her 'This Time'. July 6, 2007
By P. Cruz
Format:Audio CD
Melanie C is back once again after 2005's Beautiful Intentions. Starting off in the famous pop girlband the Spice Girls, most people assume she is simply a talentless pop singer just like many others, so they don't waste their time. Melanie C has more than proved her talents though, people just haven't had time to listen. From the suberb diversity of her first solo album 'Northern Star', the lyrical honesty demonstrated in Beautiful Intention and her increadible live abilities in DVD 'Live Hits' (recommended). On This Time she isn't as honestly blunt as in Beautiful Intentions (which is a shame because Beautiful Intentions still stands as the best because of this, IMO) but the songs offer more diversity, are catchier and offer better production. Certanly not one to miss.

Understand (5/5) - One of the best of her career. Explores the concept of love at first sight in a desperate and slightly creepy way. Sounds a bit like Coldplay or Keane.
What if I Stay (4/5) - Beautiful accoustic song to listen to. Relaxing. Dreamy.
Protected (2/5) - Not one of her best. Sounds a bit like "Angels" by Robbie Williams but lacks power and meaning and comes off way too sweet.
This Time (4/5) - Very catchy pop song that will keep you singing along. It's empowering.
Carolyna (4/5) - Pop-Rock. Talks about a troubled girl who runs away from home and becomes homeless. Lyrics aren't superb but the song is one of the catchiest and most enjoable of the album.
Forever Again (1/5) - It's caught between ballad and pop-rock song. Does nothing for me. Bland. Boring.
Your Mistake (4/5) - About her parents divorce, the pressure to fit in her family and how it affects her to this day. The most personal song on the record but still manages to be fun to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hit out of the park October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always been a big fan of Mel C's and have all but one of her albums...being overseas had it's advantages. With This Time, she comes full circle and proves not only to the world that. She maybe a Spice Girl but she more than knows how to roll solo and do her own thing just as well. I've always enjoyed her vocals on previous efforts. She has a strong and booming voice when needed and on slower ballads it slowly builds to an excellent result-heartfelt and strong delivery.

She does this throughout her new cd. I only found a couple songs that i didnt really enjoy despite listening more than once those are:

What If I Stay (just didnt do anything for did almost put me to sleep though)

Don't Let Me Go (again i couldnt stay interested in it to be honest after a few listens)

But that's it everything else (everything) on the CD is crazy good and should be enjoyed by any and all music fans. Not just fans of her previous work or the Spice Girls, but music fans in general.

You don't want to miss out a cd that keeps you interested in what comes next after every song.

"This Time" is it for real.

Overall grade 9.5 out of 10 (minus .5 for the 2 songs that i wasnt feeling)

Grade A (4.5/5)

5.0 out of 5 stars Melanie's Masterpiece April 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Looks like Melanie is always making a great effort doing her music. This Time is in every single aspect, her best work up to date, even the cover is more much better than any of the previous ones: simple, but showing a very natural Melanie.

Northern star, Reason and Beautiful Intentions's title tracks showed to be some of the best tracks of each album, This Time is no exception, and in my opinion, is the best song in the entire album. Other great songs are Understand, Protected, Your Mistake, May Your Heart, Forever Again, Immune and the Chili Pepper style Carolyna.

What if I stay and The Moment you Believe are so far the tracks where you can really appreciate fully Melanie's great voice.

This album is definitely worth of buy! Is one of the best Spice's albums ever.
