Just when you think you've heard it all before...,
This review is from: Whatever Gets You Through The Day (Audio CD)
So Lighthouse Family return after about three years since their previous release "Postcards from Heaven" with such teriffic pop-tunes as "Raincloud" and "High". On "Whatever gets you through the day" the duo is back, and although the style is still catchy pop, with a tip of soul and gospel, the songs are somewhat more gloomy and melancholy. Tunde Baiyewu's voice is still penetrating and charismatic, but the music and the lyrics have taken a darker turn. A product of their new style is heard on the opening track, "Run", a jazzy song giving you a quiet flow. And continuing that way, the CD produces great ballads, good pop-song and melancholic tracks, making fans love the new style. "Whatever get you through the day" hasn't reallu got any weak spots, but listeners must be equiped with patience. The title track is top notch, and on their third album, Lighthouse Family are more experimenting and fresh as ever.
