A really consistent album
on 3 December 2009
OK, I've never bought a Jay Sean album before but when I heard Down and second single Do You Remember, I was intrigued. Plus after hearing ex-Sugababe Keisha would be on it as well as Craig David, it became a must buy.
I think Jay Sean is his best on up-tempo songs. I mean the ballads are nice but I prefer his voice on up-tempos like the two singles and If I Aint Got You. Although the remix to Down is one of the best off the album as it really strips back the fast pace of the original. Keisha's contribution was superb (and shows she was the driving force behind the Sugababes especially the 3.0 version). Craig David was slicker than your average and Sean Paul was undoubtedly fitting on his collaboration track. My favs are Down, War, If I Aint Got You, Far Away and Do You Remember. And for UK fans, we of course like the brilliant Ride It and Stay. While Lights Off and the title track are also great. However, I was a little disappointed at hearing American rapper Drake would not feature on If I Aint Got You as rumoured as the track would have been even better! Also War should be the third single.
