I bought this album just before Christmas because it was £2.98 - it seemed rude not to, especially having enjoyed the single 'Black and Gold' so much.
At first, I didn't think much of it. The tracks had that eighties feel to them, not unlike Darren Hayes or some slow Scissor Sisters, which I kinda like. I perservered with the CD nad have grown to love it :-) It puts me in boppy, poppy mood thatcha just can't resist, shoulders movin' and fingers snapping'...
Highlights of the CD include:
Black and Gold
I love the way the track progresses from its initial intro beat (which is longer on the album than the single) up to a full blown song. The beat is addictive and the song has set itself aside from other radio tunes to join the realms of *super cool*
21st Century Life
A finger-clicking classic... Its uber-80s, glam feel is so optimistic and upbeat, you can't help but love it!
A catchy tune followed by an even more catchy chorus.
Weak monents - about 90% of albums have some track that is my least favourite (not usually 'disliked' though), and on this album it is:
The Americanism of the title gets on my goat in the first instance, and the odd subject choice for the song just leaves me wondering WHY?!?!
This album is currently one of my favourites, and will continue to grace my CD played for quite some time. The variety of tracks means it never gets boring - I can't wait to see what he delivers next!
