CD: Christina Perri - Lovestrong

Rating: 3/5

The debut album by the waitress-turned-songwriter of Philadelphia in the US is all about love and heartbreak. It features her smash single, the tender ballad Jar of Hearts, and shows off her solid vocal range and powerful lyrics.

Christina is certainly a talent to watch but the album is weighed down by a ballad-heavy track list. You can feel the passion and genuineness of the lyrics in each song though – check out standout track sweet, soul-influenced Penguin.

A must for fans.
