Review and listen – JLS – Evolution (album sampler) – oh boys you are 10 years late!
JLS – Evolution (album sampler)
The JLS boys have definitely moved in a more ‘adult’ direction - channelling Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake’s sounds in the process.
The first song contains lyrics surrounding a girls ‘ass’ and ‘licking’ her ‘up and down’ saucy indeed.
The boys have also been punched in the googlies as they really strain for those falsetto notes on a lot of the tracks.
‘Hold Me Down’ seems to be more in line with their older sound – it really reminds me of the Backstreet Boy’s too – in fact a lot of the songs sound like they could have been released a good ten years ago.
‘All the Way’ is one of the more clubbier sounding tracks on the album sampler along with ‘Give Me Life’ – I think they do this genre really well.
I think the problem with this album is that they won’t gain any new fans with it, true JLS fans will of course buy the album but I can’t see the UK warming to their new sound. They make try and make it in the US with this collection but they are 10 years later with this sound.
Edit – as the sampler goes on it just get worse and worse!
