<Play.com Review

R&B superstar Alesha Dixon returns to gain the spotlight with her debut solo album, The Alesha Show. Reinventing herself as a soulful songstress, Alesha takes inspiration from her time leading up to being crowned Strictly Come Dancing champion to present a genre-hopping album that sizzles with sparkling pop and show-stopping ballads.

Since her victory on Strictly Come Dancing, Alesha has focused all her energy in to co-writing and recording the infectious tracks that make up The Alesha Show. From the opening gambit, 'Welcome To The Alesha Show', Alesha marks her fiery return to the music industry in glorious style. Taking inspiration from her spell in seminal '90s R&B girl-group Mis-Teeq, Alesha swathes the catchy 'Breath Slow' with grinding garage synths and powerful vocals. While the dreamy ballads, 'Don't Ever Let Me Go', and, 'Chasing Ghosts', give her a chance to exhibit her impressive vocal range, the go-go explosions of 'Cinderella Shoe' and Italians Do It Better are infectious dance tracks where Dixon's funky tones dazzle over mambo beats. At the opposite end of the spectrum to up-tempo tracks such as the funky single 'The Boy Does Nothing', is the dramatic 'Do You Know The Way It Feels', written by Dianne Warren, lyrical-composer of hits such as Toni Braxton's 'Unbreak My Heart' and Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing'. Grand in proportion, the track is an emotion-filled epic that touches on Alesha's sensitive side with undeniable precision.

Presenting her capability as both a performer and songwriter, Alesha has taken her life experiences and channelled them into the varied sounds of this album. Touching on all manner of musical styles including '60s soul, big-band swing, and heart-wrenching balladry, The Alesha Show is an accomplished debut that will have lovers of all music genres dancing and singing along.

In a vain attempt to appeal to everybody, this album veers from one musical genre to another (with the sad exception of scat jazz). With so many people throwing ideas into the pot, it's no surprise that some of it isn't half bad. Trouble is, it comes across more like a Greatest Hits of someone who hasn't had any - rather than a properly constructed album.

It's catchy enough, but it doesn't bode well when the stand-out track consists of someone moaning about a man who doesn't do the washing up (perhaps she's spent too long on reality TV shows).

 Coming back strong

I bought this album last week and have had it on in the car solidly for the past week, I drive for 3 hours everyday! Initially I bought the album because I really liked the songs Alesha Dixon had released but I now love every song on the album especially"Do you know the way it makes me feel". The album includes a range of types of songs with upbeat tunes to dance about to but also really nice ballads to relax to, I can't recommend it stronger!

 Brilliant!

I bought this solely because I loved 'Breathe Slow' and 'The Boy Does Nothing' so was pleasantly surprised when I found every song excellent. There's a song for every mood of the day, great lyrics and amazing vocal performances. Alesha proves she is more than just a great dancer in this fab album.
