*** It's a shame this is by Chris Brown. I'd be more inclined to like the beat if it wasn't. This is passable though, he certainly has some shit tracks and this, for me, is not one of them. Last edited: 04.04.2012 14:31
** The derision that Chris Brown continues to cop is more than justified in my opinion. While I can ignore an uneventful artist who notches up a hit now and then, I always just question the need for such an artist. I suppose image comes into play and once someone develops a fandom for an artist, you can hardly blame them for perpetuating it.
Chris Brown SHOULD be the exception to this. In the wake of certain events which should result in him being a social pariah, Chris Brown manages to be more successful than ever. In the meantime, he shows no real remorse (that doesn't seem more along the lines of wishing he hadn't been caught. Debatable but that's my view), and persists in more ridiculous, news grabbing behaviour.
As I mentioned before, the real problem is that the music continues to be a non-event. "Turn Up The Music" is the biggest non-event of a hit in his catalogue of recent times. In its desperate attempts to latch onto a melody, I always just end up irritated by the soulless overproduction.
The real shame is that this gets to hog the spotlight over contemporaries who actually are worthy of attention. In all honesty, this extends to the vast majority, because when I listen to anyone else, I don't have the image in my mind that they have in fact, savagely beaten up a female celebrity (which is of course exemplified as I have an actual image of this). That's not to say I can't enjoy any of his hits, admittedly I do. But this is one of many that sicken me. Last edited: 24.08.2012 17:43
** Mal wieder ein Autotune-verseuchter Electro-Track mit viel "ohohohohohohooooooo", wenig Text und möglichst häufige Wiederholung der immer gleichen Textpassagen. Musikalisch relativ wertarm wie so vieles in der jüngeren Vergangenheit, was gerade aus den Vereinigten Staaten zu uns rüberschwappte.
***** Whilst the lyrics are *painfully* generic, the production on this is phenomenal and enough to forgive the aforementioned. An absolute club banger, Chris stays on his dance trend whilst appeasing the urban crowd with songs like 'Strip'. This will be one of the biggest hits of 2012, the video is also fantastic - 5 stars.
***** Find es witzig... Während ich von Flo Rida, David Guetta beispielsweise schon etwas ermüdet bin (weil da aktuell nix spannendes mehr kommt), bin ich von Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Taio Cruz u. Jason Derülo immer noch recht angetan.
Klaro der Track "Turn up the music" stellt keine musikalische Revolution dar.
Aaaber er ist temperamentvoll u. sauber produziert. Der Refrain prägt sich ein u. im Club will ich lieber solch einen Song hören als was total abgegriffenes.
