I've been a fan of 5ive since 1999 and when they announced that they were breking up, I was crushed. But when Abs Breen said that he was coming back, I was feeling better since I thought that he was the most talented of the group. So here is the review of his first album Abstract Theory track by track.
1. Stop Sign, 8/10: At first listen, it sounded a bit like an Aaron Carter song but after a few listenings,it sounds great especially the bridge.
2. Miss Perfect, 9/10: great song featuring Nodesha
3. What You Got, 7/10: OK song
4. 7 Ways, 10/10: My favorite song, the bridge is fantastic cuz he sings it really fast.
5. Back To The Limbo, 7/10: Limbo song
6. Rain, 9/10: First ballad of the album, really great, he sings about his girl leaving him.
7. Turn Me Up, 8/10: Great up-tempo song.
8. Lovers Rock, 6.5/10: Another ballad, sounds like a 5ive song.
9. Roll With Me, 6/10: Slow song, sounds like another 5ive song.
10. Emotional 5/10: I think with this song, Abs was trying to get
back to his Turkish roots but it just doesn't work. The strings made me think that the song was going to pick up but it just another disappointment.
11. Shame, 6/10: OK song
12. Angel, 8/10: Great ballad, it's the song that saves the 2nd
half of the album from boredom.
13. Spin, 8/10: bonus track, great song, the bridge is great.
14. The One And Only, 6/10: hidden track featuring Caroline.
