I love it....love it to bits in fact.
It's nuts how no-one thought to use it before.
(I didn't research the above assumption and will
doubtless now receive an almighty slap on the tail
from a Harry or Sally far cleverer than me for
Noisettes have given us a cracking little album here.
11 very fine songs performed with fierce confidence
The guitar/bass/drums formula is augmented with
subtle use of keyboards and electronics in all
the right places. Never too much - never too little.
Ms Shoniwa's voice is vibrant and full of life and despite
it's occasional limitations is always fresh and captivating.
Opening track 'Sometimes' is a composition worthy of the
late great Jake Thakray (....ask your Grandad to explain).
The woozy off-kilter opening harmonies lead into a beguiling
and unpredictably shifting melody. Easily one of the best songs
I have heard so far this year.
The dancefloor thrash of single 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' is
a blast of five star pristine pop - consumately executed.
The sunny "la la las" and handclapping of title track
'Wild Young Hearts' are delightful. It slips easily in and
out of it's big show tune production to reveal the rock solid
pedigree of this fine little band's instrumental skills.
Likewise '24 Hours' - the bass/drums backbone pins down yet
another winning composition. The chorus is irristible.
Truth be told there's not a bad track to be had here.
'Beat Of My Heart' is a stormer, destined to be a show-stopper
in live shows.Read more ›
As I'm a sucker for 50's/60's/70's music, my two favourite songs have got to be 'Wild Young Hearts' and 'Never Forget You' which are simply outstanding coming from a band in the 21st century, and songs I reckon will be remembered in years to come.
A MUST BUY!!
During the year I only buy a few CD's so I try and choose carefully. Once Wild Young Hearts arrived I popped the CD in the car and then played through about 8 times (with some tracks repeated) before I changed the music.
You might not realise I am not some young wipper snapper, but 55 and have a 12 year old daughter (even she loves this CD). This album should become a classic as there are no bad tracks, just some of them are slightly better than others.
This is definitely a 5 star album and should appeal to all age groups. I rate this as a must have album - so buy a copy today.
So why did I give this album 5 out of 5, cos it's the nuts that's why. If I was to be negative 'Don't upset the Rhythm' is probably the worst track on there, and that's saying something, as it's not a bad listen, and certainly not bad.
After hearing 'Sometimes' on last FM I decided there was more here then I thought, I'm missing something here and I was right. 'Sometimes' when played on my coveted Hi-Fi system just sent sweet heaven to my ears, in fact this style of high/low harmony blend is what they achieve best and I hope they remember this for future releases, a few songs practice this and it really does enhance their unique sound and make anyone with a pure music heart sit up and listen. The rest of the songs show a diverse understanding of how music should sound, with a female vocalist whose unique but still faintly sweet voice enhances the already excellent backing.
A mixture of soft rock and northern soul with their unique and modern twist, does not disappoint.
Believe me, if you like good music, you will like this.
