His 7th Album, Titled 7 Funnily Enough,
This review is from: 7 (Audio CD)
On First listen, the album didn't really hit me like his previous albums 'Enrique' and 'Escape'. The beats seemed to hit harder and the music seemed louder and rockier but the songs just didn't seem as instant. After a couple of listens however, the songs start to work their way in to your mind and suddenly you just find yourself singing along.
The album shows another continuation in his music and shows that he is not an artist that likes to stand still with tracks like 'The Way You Touch Me' a lot more rockier and harder edged than anything he's done before however the latin rhythms that first bought him to the attention of people seem to be missing. The lead single 'Addicted' is another ballad along the lines of 'Hero' although again seems to be a bit rockier and is nowhere near as memorable. However, 'Break Me Shake Me' is absolutely fantastic and will hopefully be a future single.
The album on the whole, i do quite like, although I'd definately prefer to listen to 'Enrique' or 'Escape'.
