I’m one of those fans that was anticipating the return of Christina Perri, with her addictive indie flow and that versatile and meaningful music. This woman deserves more recognition for her art and I’m pleased to be able to not only listen to her sophomore album, but to write a review as well. No bias. Just appreciation for authentic sound that needs to be appreciated.

***

Love that gritty feeling that plunges in with the opening guitar strings in Trust. Then once the melodies hook you, Christina leaps in with these skin-tingling vocals. What I enjoy about her sound is not only the subtleness, where the songs aren’t overdone with all these instruments or beats in the background, but I love her clarity and ability to connect on a unique level. Trust is almost like a part two to Jar of Hearts. It certainly plays on that ache and moving on from it, because Christina sings about learning to trust and knowing that its hard but she has to move on from it.

Burning Gold picks up the tempo and is all about empowerment and knowing when to say goodbye to the things that hurt and won’t uplift you.

Be My Forever is a wonderfully sweet and romantic duet with Ed Sheeran. This song is already a fan favorite and is garnering lots of attention for its flowy harmonies, catchy hook, and groovy beat. I also love that happy go lucky vibe depicted throughout the song, and towards the end you actually hear some laughter. It gives you this warm, fuzzy feeling inside and you’ll keep listening and remembering it even after you close your eyes. Love it.

When I heard Human, I was like whoa! Christina Perri is back! I absolutely love this song and cannot get enough of it. This song is always on blast when I put it on and that has been every day since its release.

Last year I was lucky enough to see Christina Perri live as she was the opening act for Jason Mraz. I didn't really know who she was at the time, but after seeing her and hearing her, I was a fan! She is GREAT! This album is a fantastic and beautiful album from the talented Christina Perri. Well worth buying, just as good if not better than her first album. Every song on the cd has melody, structure and they all seem to flow together beautifuly. They are all very well written, too, and they each have a story to tell. There's not a bad song on the whole cd! Probably my favorite song so far is "burning gold." The cd has a really pleasant, natural melodic flow to it, and Christiana's beautiful voice always conveys just the emotion she's looking for. All in all, if you liked her first cd, this one is a must have as well! Great!

This CD has grown on me. At first I only had a handful of songs I liked, but after listening to it a few times it's become a favorite. It is a bit different from her first. But Christina Perri always tells the truth through her songs. She's honest. And she has a great voice. I can't wait to see her live on the 26th! This CD is beautiful and haunting, you'll find yourself humming it at random times.

I have loved Christina from the beginning. Her first album was beautiful and she is amazing in concert, but for those thinking this CD is more full of more ballads, which is her wheelhouse, she breaks new ground on this CD and has a mix of songs that are all great. Usually listen to samples before I buy a cd, but this was a no brainer for me. Great new stuff!

Christina Perri is a marvelously talented singer. I've been looking forward to this album for months, and it was more than worth the wait. Her voice is stronger, lyrics tighter, production perfect. lovestrong. was a great first album (and luckily I got to see Perri live for the lovestrong. tour; I really recommend her shows--she sounds even better live), but I think Head or Heart is even better than lovestrong. This album shows her growth as a songwriter and I love that she isn't sticking to one sound. She's clearly grown as a person, so her music has evolved as well. A+

I'm kinda late to the party in reviewing this but here goes: This is ONE BEAUTIFUL ALBUM !!!!!! I bought "Lovestrong" a couple of years ago. Liked most of it, but not as much as this release. I have to say that just about every song is superb. While there were some "gems" on Lovestrong, with "Head or Heart", I can listen to it from beginning to end without getting tired of any of it !! I've been listening to music for over 50 years & there isn't too many albums I can say that about. (No doubt I'm one of her "older fans".)

I really like her writing style. Its obvious she wears her heart out on her sleeve & the songs show that. No hidden meanings or innuendo here, you know exactly what she's singing about !! In this release, every song sounds different than the previous one, which is a big plus. She can write in a variety of styles & tempos. Yes, most of her songs are either about relationships (good & bad), or about dealing with life's many challenges, but thats OK, I can relate to all those things.

Her voice is powerful, emotional & a little different than some of the other female artists I've listened to over the years. It has a bit of an edge to it that some may not care for but I love it !!

I'd like to pick a few favorite songs, but its hard to do because I love them all. From "Burning Gold", to "Human", to the beautiful "Sea of Lovers", to "Shot me in the heart" & ending with the inspirational masterpiece "I believe", it's all very, very good. She is a true "artist", which is somewhat of a dieing breed in music these days. She really has a knack for writing great songs.

Being somewhat "old school" as far as what I look for in music, the true test is a live performance. A couple of weeks ago my wife & I caught
Christina performing most of the new album at "UB Center for the Arts" outside of Buffalo.She did not disappoint, sounding every bit as good as we hoped.

Keep the great music coming Christina !!!
