JasonSara

1 – Bad Idea – Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz – A very funny song about infidelity, “let’s just keep coming till we come too”,. How bad an idea is it? She’s pregnant. A jokey good natured little rocker and despite a lame middle eight, it wins through on good nature – A

2 – Taxi Cab – Tracey Thorn – A great Vampire Weekend song about the price of romance and privilege , Tracy nails it completely. The change on sex works better than it should – A

3 – Be Right There – Diplo, Sleepy Tom – Before they get to the heavy duty dance, this is a lovely little pop song. Afterwards less so but not bad at all – A

4 – Hello – Adele – It is like as straight a continuation from 21 as you can imagine. A big time heartache ballad, though here she did the heartbreaking – B

5 – Turn The Music Louder (Rumble) – KDA, Tinie Tempah, Katy B – House track dance track, Tinie is really good and Katy B is back on her game after her disappointing second album – B+

6 – Younger – Seinabo Sey – Church organ leads into a heavy duty soul ballad, great voice but the song could be a touch better – B

7 – Oh, The Divorces! – Tracey Thorn – It belongs in the middle of a Sondheim musical -all exposition – A-

8 – Visionary – Farruko – Album opener, a touch laid back – B+

9 – Sprained Ankle – Julien Baker – Singer songwriter confessional obsessed with death, though the backing track is very good – A-

10 – Blame – Calvin Harris, John Newman – Love Newman’s voice but we’ve been here once too often – B-
