转型这个词对于音乐人来说可能一炮而红的创新，也可能是吃力不讨好的鄙视。所以这也需要极大的勇气和自信，Charlotte Church在发行专辑之前，在那首Crazy Chick中我就已经嗅出这张即将问世专辑的重要性了，既然是转型就得彻底一些，如果唱著Josh Groban式的歌曲也能当初的Charlotte Church没有什么太大的区别，于是一张集摇滚和流行为一体的专辑就成了我们的桌上菜了，先把专辑中的歌曲放在一旁不说，就说Charlotte Church在声音上的变化就让人瞠目结舌，曾经的古典妹妹现下成了性感的辣美，她的新的唱法完全没有当年古典的影子，就连到了高音，不没有一股用美声的感觉。
专辑中的12首流行类歌曲在这个流行已死的年代算得上是佳作的合辑了，Call My Name和Crazy Chick的偏摇滚化，到Moodwings这样Avril Lavgine式的小女生pop rock，不过没有了装样子的吉他，流行就是流行。接下来专辑基本上给慢歌类所佔据，英式的流行慢歌配上真正在唱功上过得硬的Charlotte Church的嗓言，就是流行也上了一个档次，Finding My Own Way是一首比较纯正的流行，而Let's Be Alone则是融合了电子风味的先锋派流行歌曲，前奏的一段美声像是在提醒著人们之前的Charlotte Church。有点拉丁爵士感觉的Easy to Forget考研了Charlotte Church再把我这类音乐的能力。

Whatever happened to the little girl with the voice of an angel? Well, Charlotte Church, like everyone else, grew up and decided to move from her comfort zone of angelic soprano albums in the supposed classical area (although her product had always been aimed at the pop charts), leaving behind Voice of an Angel, Charlotte Church, and Dream a Dream and entering a crowded female pop field already inhabited by the likes of Kelly Clarkson and Girls Aloud. The first two tracks, the disco-funk-oriented "Call My Name" and "Crazy Chick," both became Top Ten singles, with the Boy George-composed ballad "Even God Can't Change the Past" and "Moodswings" not far behind. She even tried her hand at songwriting, albeit with proven successful writers as collaborators: Guy Chambers, who had worked extensively with Robbie Williams, on the pumping disco track "Let's Be Alone," the Spanish-style ethereal ballad "Casualty of Love" (on which she got an opportunity to show that her soprano voice is still intact), and the final track, "Confessional Song"; Rob Davis on the aptly titled "Easy to Forget" (which unfortunately is not a patch on another of his songs); Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head"; and Gary Barlow on the midtempo "Easy Way Out." She sang "Don't you judge me as I leave it all behind, I was the victim" on the track "Fool No More," and one wonders if that was Church's attempt to explain the complete change of musical direction. As a little girl, she had no choice about the type of material she recorded, but here she grabbed the adult mantle with both hands, and smooth pop-soul would be the future for a singer who was not such a little girl any more.
英国民眾似乎还能够接受 Charlotte 的嫵媚和流行，首打单曲 Crazy Chick 之前已经登上英国单曲榜的第二名，不过这张专辑显然不会如她过去的作品一样光临古典榜。相信 Charlotte 的巨大改变，对她的歌唱事业来说是一次赌局，但愿这名少女能顺利「过关」。

The album represents a wholly new direction for the singer. Her previous album, Prelude, a 'best of' album, had concluded her classical career; Tissues and Issues is her first pop album.
The first single to be taken from the album, "Crazy Chick", released shortly before the album itself, reached number two on the UK Singles Chart. "Call My Name", the second single, reached number ten in October 2005. "Even God", the third single has debuted in the Top twenty in early December 2005. The fourth single, "Moodswings", was released on 27 February 2006, and peaked at number fourteen on the UK charts.
An early batch of the album had print errors on the right and left hand side title faces. The faces had the title "Charlotte Church : Crazy Chick", when it should have been "Charlotte Church : Tissues and Issues".
Tissues and Issues is Charlotte's last album with Sony Music UK.

This review is from: Tissues and Issues (Audio CD)
I was surprised to find out that the catchy 'Crazy Chick' single I'd been hearing on the radio was from an album by Charlotte Church. I must admit, i wasn't a fan of Miss Church's 'opera' songs, and it wasn't until the release of 'Moodswings [To Come At Me Like That]' that i really became a fan. Tissues and Issues is a complete turn-around for Charlotte Church. The angelic faced soprano is long gone, in her place is a feisty confident woman. The album contains a varied range of songs, from the soulful 'Fool No More' to the dance influenced 'Let's Be Alone'. co-writing more than half of this album Charlotte really shows us what she's capable of. If you're a fan of Charlotte's previous albums I'm not sure this one is for you, but if you're looking for an album full of beautifully sung, well written songs Tissues and Issues is a must-buy for you.
