CHRISTINA PERRI Head Or Heart HAUNTING sums up Christina Perri's second and latest album Head Or Heart. After providing us with two of the best love songs of the past four years - Jar Of Hearts and A Thousand Years - and a promising 2011 debut, Lovestrong, the 27-year-old singer had a lot to live up to.

Human, which secured a spot in the UK Top 20 at the end of 2013, picks up where her earlier hits left off, while Burning Gold is an album highlight with its Abba-esque feel.

This filler-free collection is a strong follow-up to her debut release. RATING: 4/5 KAISER CHIEFS Education, Education, Education & War DESPITE frontman Ricky Wilson joining forces with Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Will.i.am as a coach on BBC's The Voice, the Kaiser Chiefs' latest release still seems very much geared towards an indie audience.

After the recent departure of drummer and key songwriter Nick Hodgson the album sees Kaiser Chiefs fall back on what they do best - sing-along post-Britpop anthems.

Solid as the songs are, ultimately, the group's hesitation to experiment five albums into their career seems a waste of their renowned exuberance. RATING: 3/5 VARIOUS ARTISTS Muppets Most Wanted OST THERE'S nothing like the Muppets to brighten up days, and the newest soundtrack, accompanying their latest big-screen romp, does that.

New Zealand musician Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for the song Man Or Muppet from 2011's The Muppets, has outdone himself with this wonderful collection of tunes featuring Kermit and co.

RATING: 3/5
