Bond – Classified
This is another great album from the string quartet Bond. For a long time Habanera fan (from Carmen), a song like Señorita is just a joy to stumble upon. The entire album is like that. Just familiar enough and just contemporary enough.
Cheryl Cole – 3 Words
This has grown on me over time and there are a few songs that I really liked. Not great, but good.
The Saturdays – Chasing Lights & Wordshaker
Chasing Lights is my favourite of the two. Up alone is worth it. A worthy Girls Aloud replacement now that GA are not making music.
Coeur de Pirate – Coeur de Pirate
Fantastic chansons françaises. Lovely voice, nice for listening to while driving.
Rihanna – Rated R
I have tried, really tried. But I cannot like this album.
Owl City – Ocean Eyes
Fireflies sounded good enough to get the album. But loaded as it is with songs like Dental Care, whose lyrics were probably composed when under the influence of some mind numbing painkillers, it is very hard to listen to this without fear of losing one’s sanity.
Kesha – The Animal
I wish I could get back the minutes I spent listening to this stuff.
