5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly Beautiful Music, 2 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Sundown (Audio CD)
I must start by saying that I wasn't going into this album with the expectation of an enjoyable listening experience but this just blew me away. Incredible vocal harmonies collide with beautiful melancholy melodies, fusing as one of the most complete and coherant records ever made. From the first track-the jazz-influenced "Fool No More" its clear that this album is something special. Vocally its almost perfect-frontman Calvin's rough-cut teenage angst contrasting with the raunchy yet somewhat angelic vocals of the girls on "Big Fun". Another highlight is "Pretty Boy" with its lyrics of starcrossed lovers torn apart by the world, complemented superbly by spiralling keyboards and thundering drums. The more upbeat "Sundown" has one of the best bass-grooves I've ever heard in a song, propelling the album to yet further musical heights with a crescendo of epic proportions. Tearjerker "I just came to Dance" perhaps best showcases the eight's talent. It depicts a scene of a tragic death at a high-school prom-the irony of this portrayed wonderfully in its golden sunset tones draped in acoustic guitars and whirling synths. These are just a few of the highlights of this stunning, emotionally-charged record.

In short, this album is a must for any serious music fan-one of the greatest collections of our time, it puts supposed pop classics such as "Pet Sounds", "Thriller" and anything by the Beatles to shame. Purchase "Sundown" and be prepared to be transported to a far-away world where music still means something denser and more beautiful. This will make S Club 8 huge.
