All Music Guide - Jose F. Promis
Anastacia's sophomore outing, Freak of Nature, continues with the late-'80s bombastic funk/soul/pop revival ushered in by her debut, Not That Kind, but this time there's a few more ballads in the mix. Anastacia also leans more toward straightforward rock on this outing, while still maintaining the irresistible dance grooves that made her debut an international success. The album kicks off to a rocking start with the title track, which boasts a sinuous guitar solo reminiscent of "American Woman" and then leads into the soulful, bombastic rocker "Paid My Dues," a massive European hit. Other shining moments include the dramatic "One Day in Your Life," which follows the same...

Anastacia also leans more toward straightforward rock on this outing, while still maintaining the irresistible dance grooves that made her debut an international success. The album kicks off to a rocking start with the title track, which boasts a sinuous guitar solo reminiscent of "American Woman" and then leads into the soulful, bombastic rocker "Paid My Dues," a massive European hit. Other shining moments include the dramatic "One Day in Your Life," which follows the same formula as her previous hit, "I'm Outta Love," but better, with more soaring, epic vocals, and sounds like a rock version of a forgotten disco classic. The feel-good soul-funk vibe of "Don't Stop Doin' It" is a massive hit waiting to happen, and perfect for a breezy summer afternoon. When Anastacia slows down the tempo for the ballads some organic and acoustic, some bordering on power ballads, she succeeds by utilizing her strong vocal chops without venturing into vocal histrionics. Reminiscent of Taylor Dayne at times, Anastacia successfully avoids the sophomore slump by delivering an album full of raw emotion, power, and musicality which manages to improve upon its predecessor. As a final note, the Destiny's Child-sounding "Why'd You Lie to Me" and the sassy "Don'tcha Wanna" both appear on the American version of Not That Kind.
Entertainment Weekly - Mark Bautz
Anastacia has major-league pipes, solid rhythm, and an ear for the commercial hook. [B]

    Anastacia is back!

    Do you remember that single I'm Outta Love (from her album: Not That Kind)? It was a great song! Anastacia's last album (Not That Kind) included many cool songs, so is this album any better? Yeah it is! Freak Of Nature is a great album that includes many different styles of music, but Ana still got her very own musical soul all over the album. Anastacia is not just beautiful from outside, but she's got cool music, lovely lyrics and an amazing voice. You can check out any track on the album Freak Of Nature, such as my favorites: Paid My Dues, One Day In Your Life, Why'd You Lie To Me and How Come The World Won't Stop, to see what incredible voice we're talking about here!

    Anastacia does it again!!!!

    I totally loved Anastacia's first CD Not That Kind because of the power of her voice and lyrics....well she has done it again!!! The power of her voice really shines on the title track Freak of Nature and also on You'll Never Be Alone and of course One Day In Your Life!! This is a VERY talented artist and you can tell she writes and sings from the heart which is so refreshing these days!! She is definitely a Diva in her own right!! She also shows how full of life her personality is on the tracks Paid My Dues, Overdue Goodbye, and Don't Stop Doin It. She and Faith Evans really kick it and blend well together on I Thought I Told You That. As with her first CD, I love every song on this one too!! A definite must to add to your CD collection!! Can't wait til she goes on tour so I can hear that powerful voice and full of life personality in person!!

    The best album i ever bought

    Do you want an album that opens up all your emotions? Makes you want to dance, cry and dedicate songs from it to your loved one? Then this is the album for you. Track 1. A funky and upbeat song that you will want to dance to Track 2. A song you will want to hear again and again (and know all the words to) Track 3. Would make a top ten single Track 4. This one is for all those in love play it to your loved one Track 5. The song of the summer! Track 6. The cool and relaxing tune that every album needs Track 7. Play this to your ex- (boyfriend, girlfriend etc.etc) Track 8. Play this in the car full volume Track 9. Chill out in the garden and listen to this Track 10. It rocks!! Track 11. My favourite just the song that you will play to remind you of that special someone in your life Track 12. It¿s the perfect way to end an album. This album is something you will listen to again & again and never get tired of it and that¿s a promise.

    Anastacia has another hit!

    wow, Anasatcia does it again! I bought the import several months back, and I'm glad I got the new U.S. version too. ''one day in your life'' is the current U.S. single, and I hope the new song ''I thought I told you that'' will be the next single, since it is not on the import, and it features Faith Evans. This cd has not came out of my player since I got it 2 weeks ago. This DIVA is ready to hit U.S. with full impact as she has already done worldwide! She's soooooo huge she was even chosen to write and perform the theme for the World Cup 2002!

    the girl done good

    The sassy soultress has done it again!The second album ''Freak of Nature'' is a mixture of soulfull ballads to full on rocking power.With the funky intro of the titled album''Freak of Nature' we take a rollercoaster ride of every emotion that Anastacia has to offer.From the emotional soulful ballads of 'How come the world won't stop'and 'You'll never be alone' to the powerful hard hitting songs of 'Why you'd lie to me' and ' One day in your life' to the catchy tune of 'Don't stop(doing it)' to an unusually slow,melodic beat of 'Secrets'.If you are a fan of soul or rock and maybe you just fancy a change then this album is for you.It is a must have in everyone's collection.Well done Anastacia!

    Are you a Freak??

    If you are then buy this album!! You will NOT regret it. This is the second album from the supervoiced Anasatcia and possibly her best work yet! With its earth undertone and its pop divaness along with the power that resonates from that voice make this THE album to buy. All the tracks are off the hook the the best being the collaboration with Faith Evans with its hip hop edge! This album takes you through stages in Anasatcia's life which can be heard in ''Overdue Goodbye'' ''Paid My Dues'' and the current single ''One Day In Your Life'' and the title track just says it all. If you loved Not That Kind then you're gonna be blown away by this,so what are you waiting for go but this album!!

    ''Freak of Nature'' is more like ''Diva of Nature''!

    Upon first listen to the single, ''One Day In Your Life,'' I was instantly turned into an Anastacia fan. The song has a catchy melody, pure-dance/pop production, and a STUNNING VOCAL performance worthy of the very best. The CD as a whole varies from Pop to Ballads to heavy-duty R&B (she is evenly-matched when teamed with Faith Evans!), and never misses a moment. Everything about ''Freak of Nature'' is right-on, and should bring Anastacia into the U.S. music scene in true Diva-fashion (i.e. a little late, but worth the wait!!!).

    I really can't belive such a great- strong- and beautiful voice. She's amazing,She's a black person inside a white body... In my country Venezuela, I know people that are huge fans of here. Great for you ANASTACIA,And by the way I'm a freak of nature too. Keep going ....You're one of the best!
