Without knowing much of Sia Furler’s history, ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’ could, on first glance, resemble the debut album of yet another singer-songwriter aping the sonic aesthetics of her big-hitting contemporaries.
As it happens, this is the Australian singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album, and the first since Rihanna called upon her writing talents for ‘Diamonds’, just one of a string of inescapable hits that Sia has penned for others in recent years.
Fortunately, these successes do not overwhelm ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’, with tracks such as ‘Big Girls Cry’ and ‘Fire Meet Gasoline’ more than matching the output of her past clients in terms of captivating, powerful pop.
