Album Review: Melanie Fiona - 'The MF Life'
It's obvious on Melanie Fiona's sophomore album, 'The MF Life,' that at the time the album was recorded, she was still sad and bitter over a bad breakup. Nearly all of the 13 songs on the album have stinging words behind them as she tells her side of the story of the failed relationship. 'The MF Life,' which was released in the U.S. March 20, 2012, is by and large an album with a dark cloud hanging over it.
