LA ROUX - TROUBLE IN PARADISE (Album Review) - Sounds like the 80s

Hello and welcome back.....Been listening to this album in the past week, I can't put it down. Its that good.

U.K music artist "La Roux" (Elly Jackson) second album 'Trouble in Paradise' was released in July 2014 and features 9 tracks.

Im the first to admit, I love a good melody and this album is full of stunning synth sounds, catchy lyrics and sexy vocals from Elly.

Stand out songs for me include 'Kiss and not Tell, Paradise is You, Sexotheque, Silent Partner (Sounds incredibly like Bananarama), and Let me down Gently'
Pick of the album would be track No 3 'Cruel Sexuality', with dream like 80s (pads) synths, honey like vocals.... It is what I call "The Perfect Song"..Its a powerful song.

Also not only does Elly do justice with vocals, she also plays nearly all the Synths (including those delicious string (pad) sounds) and Drum Programing amongst other things... How good is that?

For me, Its a 10/10 album...La Roux  has the Looks, Style and Sound to be this years hottest release.

TRACK LISTING
1. Uptight Downtown   
2. Kiss and Not Tell      
3. Cruel Sexuality
4. Paradise is You
5. Sexotheque
6. Tropical Chancer
7. Silent Partner
8. Let me Down Gently
9. The Feeling

THE DREAM SEQUENCE - TAKE ME HOME (To the 80s) (Album Review) - Sounds like the 80s

Hello and welcome back..... I forgot I started doing album reviews so I am going to start again, with this album from electronic outfit "The Dream Sequence"

Using mostly 80s vintage synths like the Jupiter-8V, Mini-Moog & Korg Polysix just to name a few, this music would go under the banner of "Experimental Electronica"

There are 10 songs on the album starting with their most popular song "Take me Home (To the 80s)
My pick of the album would be "Take me Home" with a wicked bass arp, dreamy pad sounds from the Jupiter and little alien voices singing "Take Me Home" ... I love this.







TRACK LISTING

1. Take me Home (To the 80s)
2. Man Machine
3. 1984 (R2 remix)
4. Lets Go
5. Starion
6. Psycho Machine
7. Interplanetary Adventures
8. Night on the Galactic Railway
9. Serenity
10. Taste the Acid  (Bonus Demo track)

LISTEN / CHECK IT OUT HERE


This is the first album for Blue Mountains (Australia) music producer, has taken 2 years in the making and has a heavy influence on late 80s dance music including the acid (303) sound...

Worth Checking Out... 8/10 for me
