But that's what's good about Back to Basics -- even though she strives hard to be a classic soul singer here, she can't help but sound like herself, and surely there is no other big-budget pop album in that bears the stamp of its auteur so clearly.
As she did on Strippedshe has gotten to indulge herself here, but where she was more concerned with sound than structure last time around, on Back to Basics she spends just as much time on song and structure, often coming up with strong, memorable ballads and dance tunes on both the dance-oriented Various Back To Basics disc and the slow-burning second. Of course, she reveals more than she intended through her indulgence. Try as she may to sound like a classic singer from the '40s, she really seems to have learned all of her moves from Madonna in Dick Tracy ; whether she's shaking her hips to a canned brass section or breathing heavily into a microphone, every move seems to have been copped from Breathless Mahoney -- and that's not just on the campily retro "Candyman" which sounds like a rewrite of "Hanky Panky"but it's also true on the deliberately modern numbers like Various Back To Basics No Other Man," whose stabs of sampled brass sound straight out of early-'90s jazz-rap.
There are Gene Chandler Mr Big Shot I Hate To Be The One To Say of a couple other artists here -- some echoes of Norah Jones on the torch songs -- but the fusion of Madonna and Fiona Apple is so inspired and unexpected, it sounds original because nobody else would have thought of it, or put it together in such wildly weird ways as Christina does here.
Sure, Back to Basics Various Back To Basics way too long at two discs and some of it doesn't work quite as well as the rest, but it has far more hits than misses and it holds together as an artistic statement certainly more so than any other album made by one of her teen pop peers. It may be all about style, it may be a little crass and self-centered, but it's also catchy, exciting, and unique.
It's an album to build a career upon, which would be a Don Cherry Organic Music Society achievement by any measure, but coming after the near career suicide of Strippedit's all the more impressive.
