Timbaland – Shock Value II (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews, New Singles, New Songs

01. Timbaland – Intro (by DJ Felli Fel) The intro starts off sounding like a THX intro before a movie, and a lot like the start of the Sugababes’ recent single “Get Sexy”. It then proceeds into sounding a lot like Timbaland’s older sounding productions that used 8 bit samples such as “Do It” by…

Leona Lewis – Echo (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews

Leona Lewis’s first album, Spirit, was the biggest selling album of 2007, so she has a lot of pressure to recreate her initial success with her latest release “Echo”. More is expected of this 13-track album though, which hasn’t exactly started too well as its lead single, Happy, failed to set charts alight internationally (though…

Taio Cruz – Rokstarr (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews

I have a lot of respect for Taio Cruz, he has to be the most talented male solo artist in the UK at the moment. Who else do you know that has had a #1 album which they produced and wrote themselves? I can’t think of one. The reason that I like Taio so much…

Cheryl Cole – 3 Words (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews, New Singles

So here we have Cheryl Cole’s debut solo album. Is it going to sell well? I don’t think I even need to answer that, Cheryl seems to have attained an almost godlike status in the UK now – she can do no wrong. She has recruited some musical heavyweights to help establish herself as a…
