We Are Born (2010)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jun 22, 2010; Lead Performance: Sia; Genre: Pop

Sia Furler may still be best known for her silken vocals on down-tempo touchstones like Zero 7's ''Destiny'' and her own ''Breathe Me.'' But a girl cannot live on gauzy balladeering alone. On We Are Born the chanteuse explores more caffeinated avenues: cut-a-shag-rug funk (''Clap Your Hands''), finger-snappy soul (''Never Gonna Leave Me,'' ''Stop Trying''), and even squiggly disco (''You've Changed''). It's party music with a heart. B+
