Single Review: Tina Arena – ‘Love You Less’

2 min read

With a successful (though very short) performance at this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras under her belt and still riding high on the wave of success that has been achieved with the release of the songbirds new record, Reset, Aussie vocal powerhouse Tina Arena has decided that the next single from the album is in order and she couldn’t have chosen a better track from the record to release as single number 3.

Love You Less is the opening track from the singers latest studio album and was always soaked with single potential and follows previous Reset singles – Reset All and the albums lead single, You Set Fire To My Life. It’s a radio friendly pop hit that follows in similar footsteps as previous outtakes from Reset. Its uplifting chorus and soaring vocal arrangement fronts the track as you would usually expect from any Tina Arena single.

TinaArenaResetThough there is nothing particularly unique about Love You Less in terms of lyrical content or musical structure, the vocals that Tina delivers are the main attraction, as with most Tina Arena offerings. As she whips through the almost four minute track, goosebumps form as soon as she hits the pre-chorus and sails through the infectious and sentimentally delivered chorus with her flawless instrument. There is something so calming and mesmerising about her vocals and that talent has been something that has kept me so intrigued with her since her early years – a flame that has ceased to burn bright over a solid 20+ year mainstream career.

You may try your best to love Tina Arena less but I can assure you, as with previous hits the singer has offered us over the past couple of decades, it’s fairly impossible with a song of this calibre.
