This disc is full of ballads, some alright, some big and powerful, some formulaic, although "She Doesn't See Me," complete with Scottish bagpipes, is quite a compelling production. These guys try different styles of music all of them highly produced , including Latin on the somewhat cliched "Celebrate Our Love" and urban "I Wonder Why" , but overall, this is a straight-ahead pop disc, and a little less Euro-dance than their previous.
The Greatest Hits. One of the last British boy bands to make an impact on the charts, the four-piece A1 scored two chart-toppers, a Brit Award, and three Top 20 albums in their short three-year career.
Released to coincide with Ben Adams' appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, this belated Greatest Hits collection reveals that seven years after their split, the majority of their ten Top 20 singles have aged better than you'd expect. From their debut album, Here We Come, lead single "Be the First to Believe" is an infectious disco anthem packed with about three different choruses and "Summertime of Our Lives" is a Gallic house-inspired number that's as uplifting as its title suggests, while "Everytime" is an epic string-laden ballad that showcases the band's rather impressive songwriting skills.
Unfortunately, "Like a Rose" is so wet that it makes Westlife look like Nine Inch Nails, while "Ready or Not" is sugar-coated Motown that's just a little too sickly sweet. From their most successful period with The A-List album, their two number ones suffer contrasting fortunes. Their cover of a-ha's "Take on Me" sounded woefully dated on its release, and sounds even cheaper nine years later, but "Same Old Brand New You" is a glorious dance-pop stomper that recalls the Backstreet Boys at their finest.
On their final album, Make It Good, out went the brightly colored tank tops and unashamedly pure pop, and in came the musical instruments and a more mature acoustic sound.
Alunan choir pada bagian intro dan bridge menambah kesan megah lagu ini. Lagu ini memberikan semangat dan mengangkat mood secara lirik maupun melodi buat kita yang mendengarnya. Tembang ini lebih kental dengan balutan pop dengan sentuhan synth. Sedikit pembeda di tembang ini adalah aransemen vokal mereka dengan falsetto pada bagian chorus.
Tembang ini yang kental dengan nuansa pop ini didominasi permainan piano dan drum. Lagu yang melankolis ini seakan mengingatkan kita untuk tidak terus tinggal dalam kemuraman dan menantikan terang yang akan datang. Dengan beberapa elemen nuansa musik dan lapisan emosi, album ini memang berhasil memikat saya.
