Belinda, 62, admits that her sixth studio LP, 'A Woman and a Man', is tough for her to hear because she recorded it and she was in the "throes of addiction".
In an interview with Classic Pop magazine, the 'Summer Rain' singer - who got clean in 2005 - said: "That album is terrible, I was in the throes of addiction. I think there are a couple of decent songs, but for the most part it's not very good.
"I can't listen to that album. But when I say that in interviews, I get fans saying, 'What are you talking about? It's a great album.' Well, whatever... but I don't think it is.
"I wasn't as present as I should have been and I think that shows. It was the first time in my life that I didn't have the final say of what was going to go on an album.
"If I could do anything different I would have been more present, I wouldn't have been on drugs and would have put my foot down as far as what I wanted to sing, not what somebody else wanted me to sing. Because that's what I ended up doing because I was in such a bad place."
