Melanie Fiona: The Bridge album, a good effort

November 12, 2009

Melanie Fiona

Melanie Fiona’s debut album The Bridge will be released in the fall of 2009. The debut single Give It To Me Right was released to radio stations on February this year. Here is the album review by Neil Spencer of the which I totally agree.

The opening moments of this debut album by Canadian R&B singer Melanie Fiona bode well, thanks to a strong voice and the deployment of an infallible Zombies sample on lead single “Give it to Me Right”. The daughter of Guyanese parents, Fiona aims to combine her musical heritage with elements of soul and hip hop. Pity that she’s chosen all the most inoffensive bits. “Walk on By”, about putting an errant lover through hell, should sound like an Amy Winehouse face-slap but it’s more about yodelling prettily than venting anger. The Bridge is perfectly nice but it’s short on what it seems most nostalgic about: soul.

It’s worth a listen this album – a good effort. Download the first single Give It To Me Right and other 5 songs (including You Stop My Heart, Johnny and Bang Bang) from Melanie’s The Bridge album here .
