Sia, "We Are Born" (Jive/Monkey Puzzle)
While many contemporary singers try desperately to create the next big party song, Sia — with little effort — easily wins with the infectious jam "Bring Night".
That's just one of the many gems on her fourth studio release, "We Are Born." It's the follow-up to 2008's "Some People Have Real Problems," a brilliantly crafted CD that was morose and downbeat.
But Sia switches it up on her latest effort — and change has never been better.
"Clap Your Hands," with its killer hook, is addictive, as is the relationship anthem "The Fight," which properly — and cheerfully — opens the disc.
Even when the 34-year-old's not singing happy songs, like on "Stop Trying," where she advises "We like you, this is a game already won," the uptempo sound never fails.
She still leaves room for her touching ballads too: The eerie-sounding "I'm In Here" and the exceptional "Be Good to Me" are both pleas to a lover. And there's also a nicely done cover of Madonna's "Oh Father."
More than halfway past this year, "We Are Born" is surely one of the year's brightest albums.
