Album Review

Another World opens up strong, with a massive, chanting piece in "New World." The sound is slightly electronic, slightly dance-pop, slightly made-for-consumption straightforward pop. But it catches the ear. Much more standard dance-pop takes up a couple of songs, but the tempo suddenly changes and goes for a more dramatic bent in "Nothing Is Impossible." As the album progresses, the sound turns odder and odder. "Some More" is an excellent attempt to display what happens when Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga are put together into a single aesthetic, full of reverb and emptiness at the same time. "In the Red" starts out with a synth intro that could have been taken from Eurythmics' noodling before turning into an acoustic guitar outing. With "Truth," the group pumps out a sudden, surprising round of urban aesthetics and holds up to the beats fairly well. The album finishes out in well-trod territory with a couple of basic ballads that are the bread and butter of boy bands like W-inds. Another World shows some interesting promise for the boys of W-inds to move beyond the most basic of boy band material that they're used to. At the same time, they stick close to their roots, with standard fare for much of the course. Fans should be impressed, but others may do better to look up a few singles.
