Natasha Bedingfield – Pocketful of Sunshine (2008)

January 19, 2008

On Pocketful of Sunshine, Natasha Bedingfield sounds like Joss Stone only bouncier. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, the brightness and buoyancy of this record will keep it spinning long after CDs that shoot for hipster credibility–with funked-up bells and fancy production whistles–have been deposited back into their jewel cases for all eternity. Check it out: “Love Like This,” with Sean Kingston, puts its hands in the air for puppy love–the kind that’ll bring you back to your “middle school kiss”–and a couple of other songs follow the youth-themed suit. “Backyard” time-travels to an idyllic childhood, while “Freckles” fleshes out, for the benefit of the insecure, the beauty in imperfections. Elsewhere, Bedingfield is her indomitably upbeat self. Opener “Put Your Arms Around Me” reeks of reassurance and tenderness. “Happy” implores would-be gloom-and-doomers to snap out of it, and while the title track doesn’t wander all that far lyrically, it benefits from a chanted verse brimmed in (positive) attitude. The vibe, overall, is beach-blanket warm and blue-sky ready. Sunshine earns a pocketful, if not more, of pop-music props. –Tammy La Gorce
