Editorial Reviews

Deluxe edition includes four bonus tracks. 2012 release from the Grammy-nominated Soulstress. The maturity Melanie Fiona displays on The MF Life is underscored by her remarkable versatility and cosmopolitan panache. The album showcases a stunning mix of vibrant new sounds from a host of A-list R&B producers and songwriters, each partaking of the originality that has made Fiona a sought-after collaborator by everyone from Cee-Lo Green ("Fool For You") and John Legend & The Roots ("Wake Up! Everybody") to Reggae superstar Stephen Marley ("No Cigarette Smoking (In My Room)") and U.K. rapper Tinchy Stryder ("Let It Rain'').

It was hearing "Monday Morning" non-stop in Croatia during the summer of 2009 that I finally became deterined to hear who was the artist with the gifted voice delivering such an emotional punch. Melanie's debut album "The Bridge" was good. "Give It to me Right" is an instant classic but overall the songs did not leave a lasting impact....

Three years later and after nearly a year delay; Melanie has returned with the album she has said "truly reflects who I am as a songwriter and artist." The result: sheer brilliance. There are several different genres of music from old skool rnb, to hip hop to dance / club but to her credit this album sounds highly refined, polished and unified. Think of how Adele's 21 was an improvement over 19. The diamond has finally been polished and revealed

"Change the Records" with B.o.b, "Bones" and "4 AM" will be tracks that you will play in heavy rotation.

Caution: Please do not judge the songs by listening to the 30 sec snippets as they will not give you a true picture to the depth and quality of the tracks, Try instead to visit her official website and watch her 2 part short interviews where she explains the story behind each song and their meaning. All the while you hear the each song for over a full minute in the background. This is what impressed me.

Of the 2 versions of MF LIfe, buy the one with the four bonus tracks. "Rock, Paper, Scissors" could easily be released as a single.

My ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT: Why was "Fool for You" a track she sang with Cee-Lo and won a Grammy for not included? It doesn't appear on any of the 3 editions / re-editions of Cee-Lo's "The Lady Killer?" I don't know why record companies do not want to reward true fans who still relish having a physical copy of our favourite music over a poorer quality mp3 digital file!

I write very few reviews because I'm usually not passionate about most things that I purchase. That is usually the case when it comes to music nowadays. I've heard very few R&B/Soul albums that I can be enthusiastic about. This album earned my attention.

I will be as objective as possible. Yes, she is beautiful but that has no bearing on my opinion toward her music. There are plenty of gorgeous and boring or untalented singers out there. She just happens to be beautiful and talented and soulful.

First off, there isn't a bad track on the album. Every song shows some attention to detail, effort in writing and production. THERE IS NO FILLER HERE! Every song on here is better than the majority of the music released these days. Most artists could only hope to create songs with a fraction of the quality that she puts forth. This is not the greatest album I've ever heard but it would definitely go down as notable and worthy of listening to. I've listened through the whole thing about 8 or 9 times, at this point in time, and I find something new to love about it every time I listen.

I think one of the things that made her last album stand out was its old school feel. She has a more modern sound on this album, although a few songs still reflect an "old soul". She did not sell out, just upgraded. Another quality that she possesses that a number of R&B/Soul artists lack, is the ability to pull off an uptempo song without it sounding forced or corny. She is not restricted to ballads. "Bang Bang" was my favorite song on the first album because it was so rhythmic and authentic.

I was a little nervous initially when I saw all of the rapper cameos on the track listing. Usually when a singer starts to co-mingle their work with rappers, its not good (i.e. Mariah Carey).

For 3 years, I have been waiting patiently for Melanie Fiona's second album, since falling in love with It Kills Me and Give It To Me Right, and the wait has been worth it. This is one of the greatest Soul/RB album I've had the privilege of owning in a long time. The album has a modern soul beat mixed in with a classic oldies sound. Songs like Running, This Time, and Watch Me Work have me up and dancing while others like Gone and Never Coming Back and Wrong Side of A Love Song pull at the heart strings. The Bridge was a great album, but The MF Life is phenomenal and beyond any sort of expectations I ever had. Melanie Fiona is one of the most genuine, gifted, and talented female vocalists out there today yet still falls under the radar to many music fans. This is one of those albums that will only get better in time. Melanie is the real deal and 2012 belongs to her!

Melanie Fiona is one of many super-talented vocalists who a majority of people agree can really 'sang' yet are not passionate enough about her to support her albums. She is beautiful, drama free & seemingly normal which unfortunately in these times makes her easy to ignore. Also her promotion sucks - if the label wants her to appeal to a broader audience, they have to do a better job of making her known to that audience. I also wish that they had selected one of the uptempo songs to launch the album so that people wouldn't label her the "sad breakup ballad queen" and write this album off.

This is a great album and seems to follow my personal theory that artists go "all in" when constructing their sophomore albums in an effort to build on the success of their debuts. Melanie certainly fits my theory - this album has a great variety of sounds from old school r&b to hip-hop influenced contemporary r&b which should appeal to a wide audience...if only her label would release more than 1 or 2 singles.

My favorite tracks are:

WATCH ME WORK - this uptempo rock/soul track could've arguably been the perfect lead single since it's such an unexpected sound from Melanie;

4AM - smoking ballad about a woman done wrong by her man;

THIS TIME (f/ Jay Cole) - uptempo hip-hop sounding track this is great way to open the album;

BONES - features lyrics about loving a man so much that she wants to invade his body right down to his bones (love the almost eery sounding chorus of "ooo's");

6AM (f/ T-Pain) - yes Mr. Auto-Tune himself.
