Songs Of Mass Destruction showcases an artist who is unafraid of pushing boundaries and challenging herself. Annie delivers thought provoking and intelligent lyrics matched with her distinctive pop sound. She says that this album is the closest she’s been so far to that authentically raw and emotional place, infused with the contrasts of beauty, yearning and sadness. The result, from the haunting introductory song, Dark Road (the single) to the closing epic, Fingernail Moon, is a sumptuous musical soundscape within which Annie's soulful voice shines and soars.Meanwhile, it is TRUE that the song called Sing has Madonna, Sarah McLachlan, Celine Dion, Fergie (eww), Faith Hill, Pink, Dido, Gladys Knight, kd Lang, Angelique Kidjo, Bonnie Raitt, Shakira, Melissa Etheridge, Anastasia (eh), Joss Stone (eww), KT Tunstall, etc on it!
