OK but not brilliant,
This review is from: FISH OUTTA WATER (Audio CD)
I bought this for pretty much the same reason as the previous reviewer, i loved Jurassic 5 and especially Charli 2na - he's got a great voice. Unfortunately I was a little underwhelmed. There's not enough of Charli 2na, the callaborations are a bit weak and it ends up sounding like some of the mainstream "cheesy" hip hop or R n B - stuff I really dislike.
The album starts off ok, Get Focused and International are solid tunes, then it drops off a bit until track 7, Comin' Thru, which is the stand out track on the album. Classic vocals, smooth beat and a great hook, reminiscent of old J5 tunes.
That's the high point though, it doesn't get any better and in fact gets worse. I find the rest quite difficult to listen to, granted Charli 2na has an excellent rapping voice and throws in some good rhymes, unfortunately the high points can't be sustained.
If you really like Jurassic 5 and want more of the same then I wouldn't recommend it. If you're looking for an album with the occasional good tune and a quality vocalist then you'll like. Unfortunately it's not for me.
