I wasn't sure what a Union J album was going to sound like. Could they find a way to differentiate themselves from other boy bands out right now? The answer is YES! Union J have their own look and more importantly their own sound. This is a solid debut album. It isn't some bubble-gum pop album that you'd expect from a boy band. Their vocals are strong on every track and the majority of the tracks are upbeat with a catchy chorus that will have you singing along in no time! There's the ballad (Amaze Me), the get-your-dancing-shoes-on dance song (Save The Last Dance) and uplifting songs such as Beautiful Life and Head In The Clouds which are sure to turn your frown upside down.
It's actually hard to believe they came from The X Factor with a debut album like this. They've really improved since The X Factor and definitely have potential to make their mark in the music industry. If you're not a fan of boy bands or The X Factor, I really do recommend giving Union J a listen because I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at what these four young men are capable of. I recommend listening to Amaze Me. It's a stand-out ballad with beautiful lyrics and their vocals are simply breathtaking!
All that's really left to say is, watch out world, Union J are coming!
