One of my favorite vocalists, Sia, returns after a 4 year solo work hiatus with her strongest album to date. I loved her guest appearances on Zero 7 albums, but her solo efforts always seemed to fall just shy of her potential. The exception to this was her single, “Breathe Me” made famous as it played as the credits rolled over the series finale of the hugely popular HBO drama Six Feet Under (2005). 1000 Forms of Fear unveils the powerhouse voice within the often troubled Sia Furler. 1000 Forms of Fear marks a return to the public eye for an introvert artist that struggles with life in the spotlight. Over the last 4 years, she has worked behind the scenes as a successful songwriter for superstars like Rihanna and Beyonce. Her new album chronicles her painful journey beyond alcohol and drug abuse, depression, and suicidal ideation. It’s delivered with passion, and knowing the back story makes it even more moving.
