EDITORS’ NOTES

It’d be a shame to adorn a voice as powerful as Glee star Lea Michele’s with too much fuss. So Places doesn’t; it’s a straight-up vocal showcase packed with engrossing, emotional tunes. On songs like the gentle opener “Love Is Alive”, there’s little more than a graceful piano or string section to guide her, allowing those expressive pipes to soar over heartfelt, typically uplifting lyrics. When she sings, “I’m still a believer/Can’t nobody tame this raging heart”, on “Believer”, it works as both a tender self-reflection and a battle cry.

Lea Michele has arrived

The songs Lea has released so far show that she has grown as an artist. These songs don't sound like anyone else. They are Lea Michele and stand apart as such.
"Love is alive " is a vocal master class.
" anything is possible" is a triumphant motivating fight song that inspires you to never quit.

Lea always had the incredible voice . Now she is in control of what she does with it.
Lea Michele has arrived.
Do yourself a favor. Buy this album.
She is an artist to watch for sure.
Can't wait for the full album and tour.
Fan for life :)

Strong Vocals

She has strong vocals, but these slow, droning, melodieless song don't showcase it to me. Many others like it, so to each his or her own.

A Little Exhausting

Lighten up, Lea! Not every song has to be a power ballad fraught with over-emoting. You have an amazing voice, but could you relax a little and throw in a couple of upbeat numbers or dancefloor bangers?
