Melanie C of the Spice Girls (best known as Sporty Spice) has released her newest studio album, "Version of Me", and it is a superb musical effort.
Most impressive about this album is that she co-wrote all 11 songs on there. It was released on Red Girl Records. Version of Me opens on an atmospheric note with "Dear Life," and it is followed by the mid-tempo Escalator," which has a laid-back, retro vibe to it.
Equally fun is the electro-pop lead single, the chart-topper "Anymore." She showcases her sultry and crisp voice on "Something For the Fire." She is able to convey a wide spectrum of emotions in the moving title track "Version of Me."
The groovy "Numb" is a collaboration with Sons of Sonix. Another stand-out track is the liberating "Room For Love." She slows down the pace for the piano-driven ballad "Unravelling," which she sings effortlessly. The mid-tempo "Loving You Better" is comprised of electronic synths, which add to its appeal. The album closes with "Our History" and with the ballad "Blame."
Overall, Melanie C delivers on her latest solo album Version of Me. All 11 tracks are highly eclectic, and there is something in it for everybody. She is not afraid to show her vulnerability as a recording artist. It garners an A rating.
