i rated this album five stars because in its own sub-genre of being a fun energetic music it's excellent. being an admirer of christina's voice, i was first surprised to hear tracks which could be seen less serious as her R&B vocal endevours in Back to Basics. so i fell into that category of people that expected a great album from a great singer. the album is quite different from what the critics and fans probably expected, which may explain its slow ascending. once past that, you will discover that some of her albums were for serious music, some other albums were for experimental items, and some are just for fun. that's exactly what i think this album achieved. fun, energetic, pop-rock, sometimes reggiesh/funk, and as always very strong on ballads. her voice is consistently strong and beautiful on each song. as you know, christina is known for her mean streak, so you will hear explicit content on one or two tracks (but then again, it could be double standard, because no one would really question a male singer for using the same language.) personally, my favourite dance/energy songs are: make the world move, your body, let there be love, around the world, circles; beautiful ballads: blank page, just a fool; and a few power songs: army of me, cease fire, lights up the sky.

there is a common theme running through the album, but i think it's less of a concept album than the previous ones, so any individual song stands on its own. this is probably the strength of the album. (never use shuffle with concept albums where specific song order creates a cycle for musical journey like tori amos). cheers and enjoy the record.

Christina Aguilera's interview with Lucky magazine was what first got me interested in checking out her recent work. My curiosity was also heightened when she mentioned that anyone that likes the song "Fighter" is also going to like her new work and when Blake Shelton publicly endorsed her latest cd (via facebook). I consider both Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert naturally good singers. Naturally,I figured that "Lotus" must contain good vocals as well. I am glad that I went by this hunch because Christina Aguilera's voice definitely shines through on this deluxe version. I understand that others may prefer different songs, but these tracks are currently among some of my favorites on "Lotus": "Army Of Me", "Red Hot Kinda Love" "Make The World Move" (featuring Ceelo), "Your Body", "Let There Be Love", "Around The World", "Best Of Me", "Just A Fool" (featuring Blake Shelton), and "Light Up The Sky".
"Lotus" by Christina Aguilera is definitely recommended for those who enjoy "Fighter" and/or at least three songs by Christina Aguilera.

No problem with purchase or delivery. This CD is definitely not Christina Aguilera's best work. She has a sweet yet powerful voice but needs someone to write something a bit better to showcase her strengths.

Exactly what I was looking for, one of my favorite xTina album.
Third party sellers' delivery on time! Packing could be better, but I'm overall satisfied

Like a couple of songs but not most of them. Not amazons fault, it's just not in my taste. Love her on the voice and thought I'd enjoy her cd, but no!

Christina Aguilera continues to make beautiful music with "Lotus". It's definitely an underrated album, and I would recommend it.

I bought this CD for one song ( Just a Fool ), however, I found the entire album to be very good. Christina is at the top of her game!
