Now I know the I Am album is criminally underrated as a whole but I really do think "Power" was the true gem of the album and sadly it is probably never going to get the recognition it very much deserves. sad.gif In my opinion, while it isn't the most obvious chart hit, I could see it being used as a film soundtrack (kind of like how 'Happy' was used for Precious) - it particularly would make a fitting soundtrack for the next Avatar movie. wub.gif

Obviously that's just my opinion though. Is "Power" criminally underrated or am I talking a lot of crap?

I don't think so - it's one of the fan favourites from I Am and came 3rd in the album rate. I could definitely see it being used in a film, would be amazing if it was used in a big film and became a massive hit.

I think it is in that I think it was probably the biggest likelyhood of a hit off of I Am, and out of all the singles pushed it wasn't considered and didn't get a full performance on tour, was only used in a mash up.

True but lots of people probably don't even know of it.

That's what I think. 'Another Love Song' and 'I Got You' overshadowed 'Power' in terms what would have the most hit potential since they're very up-tempo/"dancey". Then, FUMF 'I Am' and 'Thunder' were all chosen as singles. Island wanted 'Ladders' to be released too. I just think there's something really special about 'Power' - it has such an emotional effect on me. laugh.gif

I agree and I feel like Power has the most interesting production too, so feels a bit more contempory, as well as being a big vocal moment that she sounds excellent belting the chorus on!

I know! It's quite innovative actually yet the verses are very contemporary and would sound instant on the radio.
