Summary
Talk about a sidelong entrance into a pop career: when the pressures of trying to make it as a star in her own right became too much after the release of 2010's We Are Born, Sia Furler became a songwriter for some of pop's biggest names; but the hits she helped create ended up making her famous anyway. Even if it was not her plan, her time behind the scenes helped make the pop landscape into a place more hospitable to her charms. On 1000 Forms of Fear, it is clear that her time as a hitmaker for others not only brought her quirks into the mainstream, but also made the songs she kept for herself catchier. To be fair, We Are Born began this transformation; its unexpected but winning mix of new wave, synth pop, and R&B brought newfound polish to her highly personal style. Sia simplifies her songwriting-as-therapy aesthetic even further, using broader strokes and bigger hooks to convey freedom from the past and shimmering death wishes. Alongside these less insular but emotionally complex moments are sexy, sharp-edged or all-consuming romance, which any of her clients would love to call their own; though Sia was wise to keep them for herself. Some of 1000 Forms of Fear's best moments recall Sia's previous album's eclectic sprawl, an appealing balance of Sia the artiste and Sia the chart-topping songwriter. To say it is Sia's most accessible album yet does not diminish it or her previous albums; instead, it is the sound of Furler owning her success. -- Editorial Review provided by Heather Phares for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
