*** I'm so sick of this group and their generic autotuned trash which is a poor excuse for music. I'm really quite ashamed to say that they are Australian; they are one of the biggest disgraces to the local music industry. It frustrates me that they even have a record contract in the first place when it's so goddamn obvious that they cannot sing, AT ALL! They went on Australia's Got Talent because they are DANCERS not SINGERS. But of course Sony decided there was money they could milk out of them so ta dah they have a record contract ::)
I suppose it's definitely an improvement on the previous single "Best Night" however that is far from a compliment as that song is a hideous piece of rubbish. The autotune in this is really not pleasant at all. The lyrics are generic like expected, no point going any further in detail. The instrumental sounds like "Rattle" and subsequently the whole thing sounds like "Get Up (Rattle)".
Another thing I need to mention is that this reminds me of The Janoskians. Well what a surprise considering the first thing I thought when I heard "Best Friends" for the first time was that it sounded like Justice Crew. Similarly that group are autotuned idiots who only got a record contract because of their popularity. As well as that this reminds me of Far East Movement as well in particular "Get Up (Rattle)", which is really not a good thing.
So really this is just same old Justice Crew, same autotuned vocals and same generic lyrics. But it's looking set to be a hit unfortunately, most likely due to them having a bigger name after embarrassingly scoring a #1 hit and having a follow up top ten single which is quite annoying considering how much of a flop their career was before "Boom Boom" was a big success. I cannot wait for the day when Justice Crew cease to make any more music, my ears will certainly benefit from it.
Despite all that it somehow ended up growing on me and has become a guilty pleasure. Their second best after "Boom Boom". Last edited: 26.01.2014 12:26
*** Generic, but I said that about Best Night at first and look what happened there. Can we not have this on an ad please; I'd prefer not to like it. Also, do they just cycle through different guys for every song? It seems like every time they have a new song out there are new people in the band. There are like two or three in this that I don't think have been in the band before.
** It's 'Talk Dirty' and 'Get Up (Rattle)' interpolated with the same formula applied to every one of their previous songs. They still can't rap or sing. They haven't changed, and neither has Australia.
** Pretty much the most generic thing ever. Also those lyrics are a mashup of all of the crazy party songs from the last three years and I really hate it for that reason. Otherwise i would enjoy this in a club or something like that.
** I agree bluezombie, some of the people in that single picture I must say I've never seen in the band before. It's funny just looking at them smiling.
The song itself is probably the most generic song that has ever come into existence. Every line from the song I can almost guarantee has been used in one of these party songs before. However, the beat (which too is also generic) makes me like it a bit more than I should. 2.5*
**** da hat man sich als Beispiel "Get Up Rattle" zu herzen genommen...typischer AUS Sound...wird dort sicherlich noch weiter hianuf steigen...^^ 4*
edit: wie schon vermutet ist es weiterhinauf...schon in den Top10 (#8) könnte mir vorstellen das es noch mehr geben könnte...solche dinger kommen auch nur dort hoch in den Charts :P Mustert sich langsam zu einem Ohrwurm -.- 4.5 Last edited: 09.11.2013 14:29
*** "I wanna feel the music in my soul" is just absolutely hilarious. But what I don't hate this? Vocally and lyrically dismal of course but productionwise it is not completely banal! Well it is a little considering there are only really two distinct passages and during the verses it's just standard FTTF. But still I don't mind hearing it.
**** Die nervigen Tröten verhindern eine bessere Note meinerseits - ich mag eigentlich so belanglose Dancenummern nicht, aber die Jungs sind mir sympatisch und bleiben ihrem Style treu. Eine 4 liegt allemal drin.
