But that undersells the fact that doing the whole solo-artist-self-titled-album thing isn’t about separating from the past on this go around, but reconciling it.
We’ve been spoiled for pop dance records in a year that feels so distant from a dancefloor, but Melanie C demonstrates that watching the genre’s developments first-hand over the past 30 years is a strength. With unceasing energy, contemporary twists that feel earned, and even heartfelt lyricism among bass-driven thumpers, Melanie C makes the case for the comeback.
