4.1 - 4*

"A Perfect Contradiction" ist bereits das dritte Album der UK-Sängerin Paloma Faith. Während beide ihrer ersten Alben in ihrer Heimat Doppelplatin für über 600,000 verkaufte Kopien erreichten, ist sie ausserhalb der UK bisher noch weniger erfolgreich. In der Schweiz landete sie mit "New York" bisher immerhin ein Airplay-Hit und erreichte die Top20 der Singles Charts.

"A Perfect Contradiction" ist mein erstes Album von Paloma, weshalb ich hier keine Vergleiche zu den Vorgängern ziehen kann. Das, was ich aber von Paloma kenne (also die Singles der ersten Alben), tönte relativ poppig. Das ist auf ihrem dritten Werk aber überhaupt nicht der Fall, was vielleicht an Pharrell Williams als Mit-Produzent liegt.

Auf alle Fälle hat Paloma eine sehr starke, gute Stimme und kein Song ist schlecht ausgefallen. Für meinen Geschmack tönt aber vieles etwas zu ähnlich, so das nur die Lead-Single "Can't Rely On You", das eher ausgeflippte "Trouble With My Baby" oder auch das disco-lastige "Impossible Heart" wirklich auffallen.

Alles in allem also ein gut hörbares Album aber leider ohne wirkliches Highlight.

Highlight: "Can't Rely On You"

I haven't been enjoying this album overly and the main problem is that I don't like Paloma's vocals. The songs are generally well crafted and many of them are quite cool and have an interesting sound, however I generally don't find her voice pleasant. Sometimes it's inoffensive enough, but at other times it's quite irritating. 3.5

Smaken verschillen en dat is maar goed ook
Ik vind het stemgeluid van Paloma Faith erg prettig in kombinatie met de heerlijke songs
Na 6 songs geluisterd te hebben kon ik alleen maar op 6 sterren blijven
Dit album wil ik vaker horen

I have the same issues as bluezombie on this one, there are a couple of fleeting moments where you can actually feel really comfortable but they are few and far between.
There's no real wow factor either which is a pity because a few of the production efforts are pretty impressive.
Basically if you after the same as current chart topper 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' you're gonna be sadly disappointed.

37/66

Her voice is enjoyable in small doses. While I love OLCHLT, nothing even comes close to that on here. The production honestly sounds cheap to me for the most part and she does very little with her voice that makes you want to listen. A lot of the songs have a generic old-vibe sound and there's very little versatility. The slower, lighter tracks are definitely my favourite, and there's nothing here that I hate so that's a good thing. 3.9/6.

I agree with the comments above. The songs I enjoy are: Only love can hurt like this, Trouble with my baby & Can't rely on you (the scream it's funny).
