Tokio Hotel, Mayer Hawthorne, and Showing My Hip Fan Colours (again)

Tokio Hotel – Zimmer (Room) 483

As expected, the kids have perfected the quiet verse/loud chorus formula of the 90s, and mixed it with several dragging ballad-like things (you know the type). And once again with those annoying nasal, faux breaking-voice vocals. Such ‘singers’ must be stopped. OK songs, they just really need a new vocalist. Maybe this would appeal to me more if I was 15 again.

Mayer Hawthorne – A Strange Arrangement

Reviving traditional soul and r&b, updated to the 00s with some trip hop elements. Yummy, for the most part, good vocals. Some nice late-night grooves mixed with a bunch of catchy, upbeat tracks straight out of the Temptations’ playbook.

Day For Night

Man, I am utterly convinced that the Hip’s Day For Night is one of the best records ever. Not just in this country. Anywhere.
