By Alyson Camus | November 20, 2014

The sleazy misogynist character wants to marry Swift and is in love with Grande, but does he really think anything of all this or is it just a series of bon mots? Does he really like Taylor Swift, or should I read again

This will do it, a fine modern pop album with one hit after another and a deep throated smart as hell lead singer. when “Bang Bang” isn’t even the best song on your new album, you know you’re on your way to the very top. A fine pop swirver – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-

Jessie J has released four songs off the album and only one hasn’t cut it so that should be enough even before we listen to anything else. Otherwise, Foxygen, Bob Seger, Idina Menzel… no wait, that’s a holiday album. Looks like a smewhat lame week to me.

By Iman Lababedi | September 30, 2013

Two killer songs here, the new Jessie J and the new to me Ben Pearce. Compare this to the US charts and what do you notice? None of those lousy fake cowboys from Australia and therfore a much much better chart.
