The electro-groove they start out with is as infectious as can be, and their vocal melody is fantastic.
All that all builds up flawlessly into this huge chorus that I would probably sing along with if only it didn't make me feel like a complete dumb-ass. I mean, I feel embarrassed enough just listening to these guys much less praising their songs on my Blog much less bring myself to singing along with the chorus. Oh, and the synth-instrumentation is fun, especially during that playful bridge after the chorus. Man, oh, man. My taste in music is questionable. And there's even more goodness here.
Hmmm, it seems even Arabesque weren't so immune to the influences of Kraftwerk! They get an infectious electro-dance-groove thing going, and they give it an attractive melody to boot. And wow, these hooks are fantastic ; I can't possibly dislike a song with hooks like that.
That's yet another song that I find impossible to stop listening to once it gets started. The downside is the instances of blatant plagiarism are greater than any other Arabesque album I've heard before. Either that, or I've been better at catching them. There's also a part in that song where it seemed the songwriters desperately wanted to turn it into a disco but couldn't because that was no longer the style.
Even barring the obvious plagiarism, that's a disappointing song; the only good hook is the one they ripped off, and it doesn't even flow that well with the rest of the melody. Or maybe it just jilts me a little bit that they're not singing the chorus I'm expecting them to.
They should have just covered the song. This album has its flaws. I mean, this is an Arabesque album and so of course it has flaws. But it's entertaining. Take my words with a grain of salt, because I can't trust my own opinions anymore. What I have sacrificed for them. Let's start with my dignity. After reviewing their previous album, I still have not been able to stop playing "Dance Dance Dance. Please make it stop! While it has a few decent tunes on it, nothing here quite approaches that level of pop-crack.
A few songs here are mightily catchy, but too much of the rest comes off as either underwhelming or weirdly misguided. In other words, this was Arabesque back to their usual standard.
Well, almost. You see, this was their first and only album made after ABBA broke up. And with no more ABBA songs to rip off, they found themselves at a loss.
To compensate, they chose some a few other acts to closely mimic. Which is a cryin' shame, because at least when they were ripping off ABBA, they were ripping off an act that I liked! But it's still a huge letdown. Its groove is stiff and lifeless, and worst of all, it's bereft of that good-hearted charm I've come to expect out of this group.
That celestial object happens to be tied with the stars as the most consistent thing that there's ever been recorded throughout human history. But anyway, its synth-pop production is smooth, its hooks are about as immaculate as they could ever be, and I get positively addicted to it when I listen to it.
God, make it stop. Another song I enjoy way more than I should is the title track, which not only has quite a few solid pop hooks to its name, but it also has a beat you can dance to.
So, good work, Arabesque. Unfortunately, just like the previous Arabesque album, this has also its fair share of shameless plagiarism. Seriously, guys, you sound a whole lot better when you're not writing inferior versions of better songs. Obviously they were making a play at Adam Ant there, and what a horrible idea. These girls never sounded more out-of-their-element.
Yes, there are a few icky spots on it, but I'd say its strong moments definitely overshadow those. As an epilogue to these Arabesque reviews, here is what would become of its members With him by her side, she would go on to have a hugely successful solo career throughout Europe and Asia as the German-Madonna. In the '90s, she and her husband would go onto amazingly!
However, those singles wouldn't do much of anything, and the group would fold soon thereafter. However, in the mids, Michaela Rose would return to us, reforming Arabesque with two new members, and embark on a series of successful tours across Europe and Asia. Of course, they would not tour in the USA, but that's because nobody from that country has ever heard of Arabesque.
