Review - Christina Aguilera's Lotus

Christina is definitely known for reinvention and I would say Lotus is a positive change for the super singer.  I really believe Christina could sing the phone book and it would be incredible!  Her voice carries this album and really shines.  While I did enjoy aspects of her last record Bionic, I felt there was too much going on that masked her amazing talent and maybe she was trying too hard to be edgy or to shock people. On Lotus, her voice stands out.  I feel like it's a throw-back to her older stuff, more like on the album Stripped, great songs to dance and sing along to but some power ballads mixed in.  Two of her three co-judges from The Voice are on the record.  Both songs are great, Cee-Lo is on the upbeat Make the World Move and Blake Shelton on the slower stripped-down Just a Fool.  I have listend to this album many times already all the way through and every time it went back to the beginning, I couldn't believe I listened and didn't have to skip any songs!
