My first listen to it I kind of only liked “love so soft”. But, after listening to it again, and listening to the lyrics... I am addicted to this album! I am so glad she was finally able to do her own thing that she’s been wanting to do since winning American Idol. It took 15 years for her to get out of that contract. The power of her voice in the whistle tones that she hits the 90s/soul R&B vibe that she gives is amazing. Every albums been better than the last and she never disappoints!!! #TexasRepresent
A whole new sound that has an amazing groove!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Kelly Clarkson is back and oh my word, she is astounding.
Wonderful music but her Christmas music is better
Great Job Kelly! Great vocals as always but this entire album is my jam, not just one or two songs. I love them all!
Love so dog I’m loving this song! This is fav song by Kelly Clarkson!
Strongest compilation by this artist ever...Talk about feeling comfortable in your skin...this is it. Congrats on a wonderful album. Your strength powers through.
I love this album!!! I was looking for new music to blow a gift card I got for Christmas and wanted to get another song I thought would be her next single. Couldn’t decide and had to just the entire album lol. I swear I look forward to my next drive home just so I can just listen to it all the way thru. I love this woman and this entire album is amazing!!
Once again the Mastering that Itunes does, doesn't! Beautiful voice Kelly, why let corporate greed tone it down. Keep singing girl.
Don’t sleep on this album!!! Great songs and songstress!! Kelly this is one of your best!!!
@MegaMan1118 Okay but now I need to see Kelly Clarkson killing cultists...
@BrynnCartelli: 1 year ago today. Forever thankful. So many people have helped me on this journey: @NBCTheVoice @kelly_clarkson my frien…
@milesSI Didn't know you liked Kelly Clarkson
This album is great; Love so soft is so fun & did you see that video wow cool. The album is great she put her heart & soul into it.
Just heard Kelly do her new song Love So Soft on Graham Norton....my goodness, couldn't get to iTunes fast enough!! Fantastic....do yourself a favor and find her rendition of Run Run Rudolph.....among her best....perfect time of year!! Great work Kelly!!
The whole album is off the charts, you will be reminded just how good a singer this girl is. Love So Soft, Meaning of Life, Whole Lotta Woman (so much soul in this song), Medicine, Cruel, Didn't I ... oh just go buy the whole album, you'll be glad you did
Best album so far from KC!
Yet another example of a once untouchable pop star trying to change with trends and failing miserably. This doesn't sound like Kelly Clarkson at all. More like Adele mixed with Nicki Minaj. Back in the late 2000's and early 2010's Clarkson was unstoppable. Her songs had heart, her songs had meaning. But this is overproduced and sounds like it's trying wayyyy to hard. There are some good songs on here, but the album as a whole goes to show that Clarkson is completely past her prime. She's in a rut because her style of music isn't around anymore, and she will soon fade out, just like Katy Perry.
Amazing! Love her
OH MY GOSH! Kelly’s voice ages like fine wine; it gets better with time! Her vocals will always leave me in shock! Love this album and all of the soul!
I've been a Kelly Clarkson fan since I was 9 years old, watching the first season of American Idol with my mom. I remember always saying that the girl with the highlights and the big voice was my favorite. And I voted for her every single week until she won. But the moment I became more than just a regular fan was when I heard "Since U Been Gone" on the radio and that same weekend, she performed on SNL, singing "Breakaway" and "Since U Been Gone". The next morning, I had my dad take me to Target to buy the album, and the rest is history. I played it nonstop throughout 2005 and 2006. All of her subsequent albums have had a profound affect on me, as well. 'My December' literally saved my life as it came out during a time when I was suicidal, and hearing "Irvine" was such a relief because I knew that I wasn't going through it alone, that someone who seemingly had everything she could even want could feel that way, too. But over the years, my taste in music has slowly drifted away from pop, for the most part. Now my main genre is alternative, and while I still love well done pop music, it wasn't my main genre anymore. I loved 'Piece by Piece', but not as much I had loved her previous 4 albums going back to 'Breakaway', well 5 including her incredibly wonderful Xmas album, 'Wrapped in Red'. I had resigned myself to the fact that while Kelly would always be my favorite singer, her music wasn't exactly my favorite thing in the world anymore, it didn't do completely justice to her talent. A lot of that had to do with her former label RCA, who she was with from her winning Idol through the release of 'Piece by Piece'. They refused to let her have the creative control that she had rightfully earned by that point, and they were obsessed with trying to make a "Since U Been Gone" versions 2, 3, 4, 5, 20, etc. They severely hindered her artistic growth by the end. The most creatively adventurous thing that they let her do was 'Wrapped in Red', which ended up being her best RCA album vocally and production wise. Now we get to 'Meaning of Life', her first album under her new label, Atlantic. She finally has creative control, and they let her make the album that she has wanted to make her entire career, hell, her entire life. And it paid off truly wonderfully. 'Meaning of Life' is the best album of her career. Her vocals have never been better. It's soulful, R&B flavored, and inspired by the divas of the 90s like Mariah and Whitney, while still being pop and still having modern production. There isn't a single bad song on this album, which is just bonkers, because even the best albums have one or two bad or "meh" tracks. But not 'Meaning of Life'. It's sonically and lyrically cohesive, the whole album tells a story. A story about a woman who is finally ridiculously happy who found the love of her life and made a family and is the most confident she has ever been. And all of that shines through every song. And speaking of the songs, the hooks and the melodies are just out of this world. If Atlantic gives her proper promo, and chooses the right singles ("Heat", "Medicine", the title track, "Go High", and "Would You Call That Love" all have massive single potential), then Kelly could have some of the biggest and most iconic hits of her career. I couldn't be more happy for her or more proud of her. She made an album again that I truly, truly love, and I wholeheartedly believe that you will, too.
Excellent! It is so great to hear an album by an artist who is daring and strong enough to walk to the beat of her own drum. Omg I love her voice. Update: omg, omg, omg. LOVE THIS WHOLE ALBUM. My favorite hands down is Heat. 😘😘👍👍😍😍👌👌☝️☝️
