I came across this band when one of their songs was mentioned in a blog I was reading. I don't remember what blog it was, or even what song it was, but I looked up the song on youtube - loved it. Clicked another music video on youtube - loved that one too. I came to find out that while their sound may not be something I usually listen to, they did it in such a way that it all worked. Even the songs I maybe wasn't so crazy about at first grew on me with a few more listens (though I do think their strong suite are the faster, more dance-able tracks). I immediately thought Dragonette sounded like a cross between the funky electro-pop of Gwen Stefani and the disco-pop/dance of the Scissor Sisters. And even those comparisons might be too generalized for them...
1. I Get Around - 9/10. Very dance-able.
2. Competition - 7.5/10. Catchy song. Something you'll bop around to with your headphones on.
3. Take It Like a Man - 9/10. Again, very catchy. Great hooks.
4. True Believer - 5.5/10. An ok song, but not amazing.
5. Another Day - 6/10. Like I said, the slower songs aren't their strong suite, but its not bad.
6. Get Lucky - 5.5/10. Kind of a weird song. It has almost a rag-time feel to it. But its upbeat and happy.
7. Jesus Doesn't Love Me - 9.5/10. I LOVE this song. One of my favorites.
8. Black Limousine - 8/10. I really like this song.
9. Gold Rush - 9/10. Probably my second favorite song off this album. The bridge is the best part of the song, in my opinion.
10. You Please Me - 7/10. Slower song, but still singable.
11. Marvelous - 9/10. This song is greatly influenced by Indian music (something I'm not into usually), but I LOVE it. Again, one of my faves.
Their cover of Calvin Harris' 'The Girls' (Which they rename 'The Boys') is also a really good track, however, it doesn't appear on this album OR on their EP. Why? I don't know. Maybe it will be on their next one, but it is a really great song as well. It starts off really odd with the talking intro, but it gets so catchy and singable that I love it now!
I also recommend the songs off their EP:
- Magical Fantasy
- Shock Box
- Teacher Teacher
