Album Review

Adhering to the old proverb, "strike while the iron is hot," reality show staple Peter Andre has now recorded almost as many solo albums in the last 12 as he had done in his entire career. Accelerate is his third studio LP to be released since his acrimonious split with Jordan last year, a rather prolific work rate which, unlike his 2004 pop comeback, has resulted in success both as a TV personality and as a genuine, charting pop star. But whereas his last two releases, Revelation and the Valentine's Day-themed Unconditional: Love Songs struggled to distance themselves from his dated '90s sound, Accelerate, inspired by the 2000s' dominant urban electro scene, is a much more contemporary affair. The synth-heavy uptempo tracks "Kiss and Tell" and "After the Love" are reminiscent of Jay Sean's transatlantic club anthems, "XLR8" and "Under My Skin" echo the funk-pop of Justin Timberlake's last effort, while there are songs co-penned by the likes of chart-toppers Labyrinth and Taio Cruz. Only lead single "Defender," an homage to Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation," harks back to the formulaic, watered-down R&B of his previous work. Even the ballads, usually the nadir of any Peter Andre album, are dragged kicking and screaming into the new decade, thanks to the clattering beats of the Ryan Tedder-inspired "Perfect Night" and the Ne-Yo-esque seductive slow jams, "Wondergirl" and "Prisoner." Without the baggage of his naff early singles and tabloid headlines, Accelerate would undoubtedly earn more credibility and acclaim than it will inevitably receive. If he could just rein in the vocal histrionics and the less than subtle lyrics, his ambitions to be taken seriously as an artist in his own right would no longer seem so far-fetched after all. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Great album

This man is seriously underrated in the music industry, I know his done some cringeworthy and cheesy songs in the past but that was the 90's? This album is just as good and should be just as credible as any other album out there at the moment. Just wish radio stations would give him a chance and play his music coz this guy is very credible now and this album is great!

Pretty darn good!

I love Pete but have NEVER bought his music before because it was never my cup of tea - until now. I fell in love with the new single Defender, loved it's MJ vibe, so I decided to download the new album Accelerate. The title track is funky and slick and After The Love is another belter. For me, Defender is still the best track but this is by no means an album of fillers. Cool, modern, it's like Ne-yo meets a bit of old school MJ with Pete's own flavour thrown in. Peter says he has strived to become a credible artist and I think he's finally cracked it. Never bought a Peter Andre record before? Now just might be the time to start. xxx

Accelerate is Amazing

This album is absolutely fantastic. My favourite track is 'Perfect Night'. Keep playing album on repeat. Well Done Pete! XX

In 1992 and 1993, Peter Andre defied the odds by becoming a pop star in Australia when the last thing the country was looking for was a singing, dancing, muscle-flexing R&B pop hero. In 1995 he achieved the near-impossible again by repeating the same feat across Europe. Originally born in England his family relocated to Surfer's Paradise, Queensland when he was ten years old. This proved to be a major turning point in Andre's life and ultimately, his career. He had just started getting into dance...
