Graeme, Goodwood. 14 October 2004
Just got the CD yesterday and already I've listened to it a couple of times. This is my vote for my favourite album of 2004. Natasha has already given us the two hits "Single" and the current hit "These Words" which topped the UK charts. Her album has also entered the UK charts at the No.1 position.
The album contains 11 amazing tracks which all should be hits in my humble opinion. Her next single will be the title track. My favourites, if I had to really really choose, are "I'm a bomb", "If you're gonna", "Silent Movie (co-written with Guy Chambers - Robbie Williams' ex partner) and "Drop me in the middle" featuring Bizarre from D12. The last sounds completely different to the rest of the CD, with its mix of R&B and Hip-Hop. The album also has its shares of ballads like "I Bruise easily" and "Wild Horses" which are definitely just not some fillers. The songs don't sound similar which is great and there is a good balance between the upbeat and slower songs.
She has co-written all 11 tracks, and rumours are that Britney is so impressed, she wants her to write for her next album.
This CD will be in my CD player for quite some time still, that's for sure. I can't wait for her 2nd album already. Daniel is to release his new before the end of the year, and he has his work cut out for him. Sibling rivalry has never been sweeter to my ears.

It would seem that the Jackson’s have got some competition when it comes to other musical families – in the form of the Bedingfields! Brother Daniel not only conquered the British airwaves a couple of years ago, but had world-wide smash hits with songs like Gotta Get Thru This and If You’re Not the One. Now it’s the turn of younger sister Natasha whose debut album, Unwritten, was recently released in South Africa. Natasha’s first single, Single, shot up the charts a couple of months ago, establishing her as a strong, independent woman with stunning good looks, a voice and talent to boot.
The second single, These Words, is already high up on most charts, even though Single is still charting on most of them as well. Not bad for a newcomer! Both these tracks are definite highlights an the album that is mostly pop-based with heavy rock, hip-hop and soul influences. Natasha tries various musical styles on Unwritten and shines in most. Some of my favourites include the stunning sing-along-pop title track, the slow and tender I Bruise Easily, the punk rock-ish If You’re Gonna and the raw and emotional Wild Horses. The album also has a hidden track at the end that is fairly acoustic and again shows off Natasha’s amazing voice.
Natasha’s voice is rich, strong and layered, ranging from a softer pop style to a strong, raw and emotional take - a voice that after a while becomes almost haunting. (Think a more versatile Pink if you will.)
