5.0 out of 5 stars A1 Make It Good, 28 Dec 2003
This review is from: Make It Good (Audio CD)
A1 are probably one of the few boybands i've really liked, Their early music was catchy and up-beat with choruses that once in your head lodged themselves there for what seemed like an eternity. Unlike most boybands however A1 do play their own instuments and write or co-write the majority of their own songs and in a country where manufactured pop seems to be the only way to guarantee a big hit, that's quite an achievement.
This 3rd album sees them going for more of an adult orientated sound, perhaps because they've realised that their audience is growing up or perhaps because this is the type of music they always wanted to do, whatever the reason it works. Like any good pop album there's a good mixture to the style of the tracks, with up-tempo rockers like 'Isn't It Cheap' and 'This Ain't What Love Is About', middle of the road pop songs 'Caught In The Middle' and the title track 'Make It Good' and ballads 'When I'm Missing You', 'Crazy For Leaving You' and 'Cherish This Love' A1 have produced an album which plays at a consistantly high level and gels together much better than their previous albums. The songs are well written and catchy and show that boybands can actually grow up. A very good album.
