Album Review

The fourth album from 2008 X Factor runner-up JLS, 2012's Evolution features more of the British boy band's slick, dance-oriented R&B. This time, JLS have teamed up with big-name producers Mr. Bangladesh (Usher, T-Pain) and Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber). The result is a synth-heavy album that evinces a kind of updated take on the '90s new jack swing influence that first inspired the group. JLS' heart is in the right place, delivering material that mixes hip-hop production with an ear to pop songwriting à la bands like Tony! Toni! Toné! and Bell Biv DeVoe. Cuts like the dirty leadoff song "Dessert" and the would-be club anthem "Hottest Girl in the World" are radio-ready tracks built around percussive vocal samples. A few also feature some cheeky lyrical turns of phrase (like "Girl, you're looking like a menu/Everything on you looks good to me" on "Dessert," and replacing the word "boyfriend" with "toyfriend" on "Hottest Girl"). JLS also deliver some straightforward dance-pop tracks, like the Maroon 5-esque "Hold Me Down" and the romantic midtempo ballad "Don't Know That," which brings to mind the classic R&B sound of Boyz II Men and Jodeci.

this will take pride of place on the shelf next to all my other jls albums. bring on nov 5th which happens to be my birthday BAZINGA :)

Can't say it's not there because it was for charity because love you more was for charity yet it was still on the second album from jls. Proud was popular in the charts. Other than this the album is good! Put proud on the track list.


JLS are just amazing and this will be amazing so preorder it, ok bye.
