Music Reviews: #54

Cover, Song, Artiste & Album

Review & Rating

Obsessed
Mariah Carey
Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel

1. The video is alright – just didn’t like the ending of the Mariah’s Eminem lookalike character. But entertainment value wise, yes.

2. I am surprised Jermaine Dupri isn’t part of the song in any way; I thought I felt trademarks of him on this everywhere.

3. According to Cannon, his wife wrote this song in part with being a fan of “Mean Girls”, yes, the Lindsay Lohan film, where the chorus line was supposedly quoted from.

4. Despite all the trivia comments (above) that doesn’t really matter. this song is actually (secretively) addictive and way better than any release from her previous album.

5. Though, “Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel” is really, a stupid name for an album.

Fallin’ For You
Colbie Caillat
Breakthrough

An ingenious method, in terms of video, for making Colbie seem all natural and good-hearted in falling in love with an average Joe, who tries all hard for her attention, and gets a little of what he wants in the end of the 3+ minutes.

Also, a good cover up for otherwise what would seem to be a typical release from Colbie. Not that it is bad – it is adult contemporary – but it does sound like she is trying to please everyone, and we all know that is an impossible task to do.

So Fine
Sean Paul
Imperial Blaze

My letters to people naming Sean continue…

Dear Sean,

Let’s get straight to the point. With your absence from a release in 4 years, I am not sure if you’re still “in the game”. (Look at 50 Cent.)

Accordingly, you said you pushed back the album release because you wanted to move away from party songs to youth violence in Jamaica. This single clearly doesn’t feel so to me.

Yet, it is not an entirely bad song; a nice no-brainer dance anthem it is. Maybe it is the weekend and I don’t wanna feel like having a brain tumour (like how “I Gotta Feeling” makes me feel, except today – weird day!).

Regards,
Grandaudiomaster.
