Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Being Somebody builds on the success of Liberty X's debut and is more of the same pop-soaked R&B: raunchy but in a child-friendly format. Liberty X have matured into a major-league pop act and their sound has not yet become jaded, unlike so many bands on the same circuit.

There is little here that stands out as amazing but by the same token there is nothing that stands out as bad. The album opens with a short musical skit bigging them up and continues with the first two singles, "Jumpin'" and "Being Nobody". These are clearly standouts, but the rest of the songs still hold their own.

With the UK charts currently being dominated by US pop-R&B, the influences on here couldn't be more apparent and nowhere more so than on "Whatcha Doin' Tonight", a funky electro-rock/hip-hop number in a frighteningly similar vein to Christina Aguilera's "Dirrrty".

Being Somebody is a decent collection of songs with good production but Liberty X are still a long way off their US counterparts. --Steve Beefmark

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy! 28 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
After listening to Liberty X's new album 'Being Somebody' I can clearly see that they have changed their image from a once garage/Pop band to a more mature RnB band. They have worked with various RnB producers which is noticable in the album, each track is completely unique in style.
There are of course the up-beat dance tracks which they have been renowned for, like Jumpin' and Being Nobody, however the album also includes some powerful ballads such as Maybe and Forever, these are not the same pop ballads like Holding On for you and No clouds but are much more mature which i know will be favorites on the album.
My favourite song on the album is definitly Everybody cries or Maybe, Everybody cries is quite a slow song, which shows off the band's great voices, after touring the UK the band thought it was important to include live instruments in the new album, this is very noticable in Everybody Cries with fantastic violin backing which compliments the powerful song which in my opinion should be their 3rd release of this great album. One of the songs "I'll be remembering" is so RnB i orignally thought it was an American track by TLC or Destiny's Child.
Liberty X have really broken away from any manufactured pop tracks and are expressing their real talent in song writing etc,
With many great songs, 2 top 10 hits and a great new style i give this album 5/5 a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being Somebody??? Damn right! 19 Oct 2003
By Adam G
Format:Audio CD
It ain't half been a bad year for Liberty X; Brit Award, sell out tour, ivor novella award, double platinum album etc...the list goes on. Now with the release of their highly anticipated second album, 'Being Somebody' on the way...can they match that success? I think so!
1. Intro (Being Somebody)
This is only 20 seconds long, but instantly you can tell the American influence 'Being Somebody' has taken. (Can't really give it a score).
2. Jumpin
You've all heard this now. Definitely the best party song on the album! (Personally my favourite liberty x song to date) 9/10
3. Being Nobody
This was the first single to be released of the album. Very cool! But it's probably the odd one out on the album, because of its electronic sound. 9/10
4. Everybody Cries
Without a doubt the BEST song on the album! This is a killer ballad! It's not your typical pop band ballad; it's very mature with a full orchestra! Vocals are superb! 10/10
5. Watcha Doin' Tonite
Uptempo dance number. Very catchy with a solid beat. The verses sound a bit like Christina Aguilera's 'Dirrty', but that's a good thing! It's certainly single material. 8/10
6. The Poet
At first I was intrigued by the title of this song. So I was anxious to hear what its about. And its superb! Nice ballad with a cool piano catch. Good song. 7/10
7. I'll Be Remembering
This is VERY rnb! I really couldn't believe it was Liberty X when I heard it. I think people will be very surprised! Its soulful and sexy. I really like it, but I don't think Liberty X's younger fan base might appreciate it as much. It sounds a bit like TLC's 'Waterfalls'. 9/10
8. The Last Goodbye
Nice song! Cool guitar catch at the beginning. Jessica sings really fast in this, but its well class!

Just a short review. This album is a real grower. Give it a chance because each track, bar maybe Wotcha doin tonight and I'll be remembering, are excellent. There is a great variety here and the overall sound is extremely atmospheric. What really makes this album superior to the first are the vocals. All the band members stand out, but it is Kevin who shines the most, particularly on the second half of the album.
Buy the album first, listen a few times and you will be hooked. Don't let Liberty X become another pop band who get dumped. They are worth it. Keep on listening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Special 23 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
A distinctly average release from Liberty X, lacking flair and originality. The up-beat numbers are hugely disappointing, with "Jumpin" and "I Just Wanna" suffering from dire lyrics. However the ballads and the RnB numbers are much easier on the ears. "I'll be Remembering" comes close to recreating the class of "Just a Little" and is a personal favourite on the album. "Maybe" is a beautiful ballad capable of making the hairs on the back of neck stand on end. Other than these gems the album lacks credibility and the edge expected from top artists like Liberty X. A pleasant enough album but nothing special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool album, but just a bit too much ballads 4 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I heard Jumpin' and I just couldn't wait for the album. To be honest I was a bit disappointed. Although Liberty X have really improved in singing and have proved to be good songwriters this album isn't as good as "Thinking it Over".
There is so much RnB and HipHop our right now and so little (decent) garage music in the charts. And although the debut album Thinking it Over screamed garage with all it's raunchy party tunes Being Somebody is more of a pop album covered in ballads. It's still has a few decent tracks like Jumpin', Whatcha doin Tonight and Close Your Eyes but a lot of the songs are a lot slower. And of course I like ballads, I just think 3 or 4 is more then enough. But this is just me, if you are into the slow stuff then this is the album for you. If you are more like me and into the fast party tracks then maybe you should rent it first.
