Album Review: ‘Ciara’

ciaraReleased: July 9th 2013

Label: Epic

Purchase: Amazon | iTunes

Rating: 4/5

I truly enjoyed Ciara’s debut and sophomore albums but to be honest I went to sleep on her previous two. But now, her fifth studio album definitely has me wanting to pay attention to her music again. The self titled fifth album has concepts swaying from sex, love, being bold, and having fun. It’s actually quite tolerable as rudiments used aren’t all in your face and vulgar. Ciara does a rather classy job bringing forth tracks otherwise deemed as raunchy, and soars satisfyingly on more laid back mellow songs. There’s also some experimenting going on, with the presence of reggae, dance, a little bit of rock, and some electro pop even. A track by track will give you a better idea of how I’m feeling towards the album: Continue reading “Album Review: ‘Ciara’”

Album Review: ‘First Love’ by After School

as-single

Release date: June 13th 2013

Label: Loen Entertainment

Purchase: Kpoptown | Yesasia

AFTER SCHOOL’S BACK!!

I had to say that because I’ve been waiting, and I am somewhat satisfied. Not entirely in love with the mini album but I’m sold by the overall concept. I listened to the EP at least two times before writing the review so I can safely explain my impression of each track. From start to the finish, every single song had something of interest. With the exception of the intro, 8 Hot Girls, which I think should’ve been longer instead of only a minute and couple seconds, my reaction has pretty much swayed from sensual, classy, fun and upbeat, to warm and misty. I’ll break it down so you know which song rubs me in what way. But before that, let’s get into 8 Hot Girls. Continue reading “Album Review: ‘First Love’ by After School”

Whatever Happened to…?

R&B music. A genre deemed sexy, sensual, emotional, passionate, groovy, tasteful, for the talented vocalists, and often times contemporary. Like many, I’m a lover of rhythm and blues, in particular the 90s. Because in that era, there were people who actually could sing and performed songs that actually made sense. Its quite interesting how the genre hardly gets any recognition these days, and those who started out … Continue reading Whatever Happened to…?
