CRITIC REVIEWS

In 1000 Forms Of Fear, we have what is probably Sia’s finest body of work.

83
Consequence of Sound

She’s all over the place because her writing is strong enough to let her dabble in every tide pool, and the cross-pollination just strengthens the album’s heart.

80
Time Out London

‘1000 Forms of Fear’ isn’t a string of Number Ones; it’s more dialled down than that, less obvious, a little deeper, and sometimes middlingly generic.

80
Exclaim!

One would be tempted to say this comes off as a glorified demo project, but that doesn't do Sia's songwriting and singer abilities proper justice.

80
AllMusic

On 1000 Forms of Fear, it's clear that her time as a hitmaker for others not only brought her quirks into the mainstream, but also made the songs she kept for herself catchier. 

80
Spin

Listening to 1000 Forms Of Fear, you can hear how strong Furler's influence is on the pop stars with whom she works. 

80
PopMatters

The occasional filler that clutters 1000 Forms of Fear prevents it from really lifting off as a cohesive piece, but as mainstream pop albums go, there are few as well-crafted or executed as Furler has delivered here.

80
Rolling Stone

Her knack for heart-swelling choruses shines through on a set of tracks you might play while winning a marathon

80
The Line of Best Fit

1000 Forms of Fear is a anguished pop album for our uncertain times, crafted by an artist who is conflicted and torn by her celebrity as well as her vulnerable heart.

68
Paste

It’s an album that acts as if simply existing was success enough. Yes, it is successful in this light, but it could have still tried to be more.

67
Pretty Much Amazing

It finds Furler in stark, naked view. But I can’t muster more than a nod of admiration. Sia deserves a crowning accomplishment to match her phenomenal talent and remarkable story.

60
The 405

1000 Forms of Fear is a massive disappointment based on Sia's previous songwriting credentials and the strength of 'Chandelier'

60
Drowned in Sound

Sia’s become a victim of her own ubiquity and doesn't have the force of personality to persuade you otherwise.

50
A.V. Club

Perhaps because she’s been so immersed in writing songs for other people, the distinctive edges of her singing voice and music feel largely subsumed by external influences and validation.

Um dos nomes mais badalados dos últimos tempos é a cantora/compositora australiana Sia Furler, mais conhecida apenas como Sia. Dona de uma carreira longa com seis álbuns já lançados, Sia ganhou notoriedade mundialmente quando a sua parceria com o DJ David Guetta se transformou no hit Titanium. As parcerias continuaram com outros artistas resultando em outros sucessos comerciais. Além de participar como featuring, ela também se firmou como a ... read more

Totalmente diferente do seu antecessor o 1000 forms of fear o que eu chamo de perfeição, em cada música sia conseguiu passar o sentimento que ela queria, isso fica ainda mais perceptível em dressed in black, que tem um letra impecável e que fechou o álbum perfeitamente.

Best Track: Chandelier, Free the Animal, Fire Meet Gasoline, or Cellophane
Worst Track: Big Girls Cry
Most Overrated Track: Eye Of The Needle
Most Underrated Track: Fair Game

The production sounds pretty bland, and the song structures are formulaic and predictable, but I like Sia's singing. It's emotive and rife with imperfections that only add depth to the music.
