Prepare to eat your words. Even if you don't want to, you'll love this album. There's no way you can disregard this one. The Late Night's "I Said Goddamn" has got your attention from the second you press play. Piercing vocals, pull you in, but with their longest track running at a mere 3 minutes, you're always craving more. The first song "Cardiac Roulette" is familiar but blows you away on the album. "Am I everything you want, I never kiss & tell. It's a knockout kiss in the final round" You'll be seeing that in everyone's away message come February 24th…
The album’s title track, keeps up the energy of “Cardiac Roulette”, with even more intensity. The type of song you listen to when you’ve been having an “everyone one in the world sucks, but me day” “She poisoned the apple to take my breathe away” is a line that immediately draw you in, as you hear Yamil belt it out in “Listen Up All You Cats”
The Late Night chills the mood with “Popped.Dazed.Polite,” showing Yamil has quite a set of pipes on him, with this one minute and thirty second ballad featuring an eclectic mix of adjectives (haha).
I have to say “I Want You To Look Good Naked,” has one of the most ridiculous hooks I’ve heard in a while, but you still can’t help to dance, so it does it’s job. Plus the way it ends with overlapping vocals is a very nice touch, an it leads perfectly into the instrumental interlude.
Then the song that everyone waits for the whole show! “Let’s Talk Some Jive!” EVERYBODY DISCO… need I say more? Although it’s a strong song. The highlights of the album are “Phones for You… I Think It’s The Devil” and “Redemption” Both songs that make you really realize Yamil can actually sing. The lyrics are thoughtful as well, and differ greatly from the rest of the CD.
The album leaves you feeling a little happier, regardless of if you like them or not, you’re guaranteed to have an inclination to dance at least once, and will crack me a smile with each chorus line.
