You may have heard and loved “Chandelier,” but it’s time an entire album gets the recognition it deserves.

Australian pop singer Sia Furler, known as Sia, released her sixth album, “1000 Forms of Fear,” on May 29, 2014.

After almost one year since its release, the Grammy-nominated song “Chandelier” is still popular and the music video has millions of views on YouTube. Both the song and the video have many interesting and unique qualities.

I personally enjoy the music video because it is different and very well executed. The dancer who portrays a younger Sia, Maddie Ziegler, really connects to the lyrics of the song through her performance.

When it comes to the rest of the album, Sia’s unique voice makes every song stand out and gives each one an emotional feel to it.

Songs like “Eye of the Needle” and “Big Girls Cry” are both singles that have the potential to be as popular as “Chandelier” because Sia’s vocals are very well projected.

In “Eye of the Needle” especially, Sia’s deep and low voice makes this song profound, shown through the lyrics “Step and repeat, tears fall to the beat, smile through the pain.”

In January 2015, Sia released “Elastic Heart” as the fourth single from the album “1000 Forms of Fear.” The accompanying music video featured Ziegler and actor Shia LaBeouf.

Originally, “Elastic Heart” featured The Weeknd and Diplo as part of the soundtrack of the American movie “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” In my opinion, this version is better than the album version because the other artists add harmony to the song as a whole.

“Fire Meet Gasoline” is another track from this album that caught my attention because of her amazing vocals and deep lyrics. As I listened to this song, I felt the intensity that Sia intended for it to have.

Have no fear when buying the album “1000 Forms of Fear,” because it is truly wonderful.

5 / 5 stars
