    7 Billion was a 'single' of some sorts, wasn't it?
    But yeah, my love for Claire obviously helped (even in just playing the songs until they grew on me) but it is a ridiculously solid album

    Well, almost kinda 5th single off the album... which i guess is way more than most popstars get out these days.

    Personally, I'd have released 7 Billion over Shame On You. And Don't Leave Me In This Love Alone in place of End Before We Start.
     
  3. Yeah, the singles actually released weren't the right choices.

  4. Maybe I need to give the album another go. Outside of a couple of the "singles" I only listened in full maybe twice as it just felt a bit too MOR.

    But Claire is amazing as a vocalist so maybe as a few of you said it's a grower....

    On My Own
    7 Billion
    Ruins
    Wildest Dreams

  6. On My Own
    Don’t Leave Me In This Love Alone
    Shame On You
    7 Billion
    Wildest Dreams

    would have been my choice. Though I love the remix of My Heart Is Heading Home
     
  7. On My Own
    End Before We Start
    Shame On You
    7 Billion

    In my opinion Claire’s single run was amazing I wouldn’t change a thing my favourite single is Shame on you

  8. I love the entire album but the singles run could have been better. End Before We Start is a great song but second single it is not. My run would be:

    On My Own
    Don’t Leave Me In This Love Alone
    7 Billion
    These Wings
    Brave

    That was one of my requests. That song always makes me well up.

    In other news, just before lockdown her husband posted about her being "in the studio", I wonder if she's planning on a follow up after Steps. She does seem to be really invested in singing 'full time' again, finally!
     
  12. Perfection!

  14. Sorry for the bump, I found these instrumental versions of My Wildest Dreams on YouTube which I hadn't heard before, shame it's not the full album. Beautiful arrangements!

    Oooh not even the splitter.ai versions.

    Where's My Wildest Dreams and Don't Leave Me In This Love Alone

    *edit, My Wildest Dreams


    Steve Anderson, you're a genus.
