I definately don't like that much what Sia's been doing lately. maybe you guys didn't know her music before "Chandelier", but she did pretty amazing things before becoming a pop star. "Some People Have REAL Problems" is her best album definately, although is more artistic-oriented instead of commercial pop (take a listen to the singles "Buttons", "Soon We'll Be Found" and my fave "The Girl You Lost to Cocaine").

I LOVE Sia before she became the go-to writer of current pop music. Her music with Zero 7 and initial steps as a solo musician were of pure gold!

I don't really like her past or present work, every now and then she squizes out an above average song and that's it...
I just really really loved her rendition of California Dreamin' :love: her unique style and this song mashes well together and the production is great

I like 'Titanium' and most of her latest album. Other than that she's just a weird overrated mess. And the whole "hiding face" theme she has going on makes absolutely no sense when everybody's seen her face already cause she was famous by the time she started doing it.

To be fair, she started withdrawing from the public before this album. She didn't feature in any of her dance feature videos, I think the last time her face was shown in a video was 2010. And I think the last time she performed "normally" was in 2011.

But yeah, it does seem a bit pointless to do something like this this far into her career.

Sounds good. Nothing outstanding and definitely not topping 'Chandelier', but better than at least half of her previous album.

The 3:52 moment was brilliant, thought it will sound so bad live...

Edit: After a few listens the song is fucking brilliant. Definitely her best single after 'Chandelier'.

Sia is very hit or miss. Alive is pretty good. She could have tone down her vocals in the chorus though.

New version of Cheap Thrills with Sean Paul. I like Sean, but not with Sia. If it were RiRi on the track, maybe.

So, out of nowhere she dropped a non-album single featuring Kendrick Lamar

It's okay, but I'll take it over what else is out right now.
