With so many great song credits under her belt, it’s no surprise Sia’s sixth studio album is chock-full of future hits. From its start with single “Chandelier” to its end with “Dressed In Black,” the singer/songwriter has managed to create her best release yet. Sia’s already stellar vocals soar even higher through the 12-song effort, giving her powerful lyrics the perfect vehicle to drive themselves into the hearts of fans. Standouts include “Elastic Heart” and “Fair Game,” though it is quite hard to choose a favorite, given there isn’t a bad tune on the album.
