Jedward are an example of everything that is wrong with the social media generation. They are poster boys for the ‘shout loud enough, and you will get heard’ school of thought. ‘Planet Jedward’ perfectly illustrates their inability to sing and rap, even through a haze of auto tune and overblown ‘pop music by numbers’ backing tracks. This pathetic attempt at music is given a pass by many because it’s marketed at children. I call bullshit. Children should not have these bombastic ball bags held up before them as an example of ‘success’. It’s damaging to our society. I’d rather slam a phillips head through my ear than have to listen to this tripe one more time.
[…] songwriting by numbers, put together by someone apparently suffering from dyscalculia. While their first album shit all over some classic pop tunes, this a whole different ball game of bullshit. If I had a […]
Total crap! You’re judging them from when they were 17/18 and first appeared on XF! Maybe see what their doing now! Writing their own music, producing their own music videos ect! Stop listens to to bull in the media and take time to investigate and find out for yourself!
That picture you’ve used is from their first rushed out album released in 2010! They’ve had three since! Take a look at Young Love! Their 3rd studio album or attend one of their sold out concerts! Full of adults and young people! Watch them perform an accoustic set.. Then at least you’ll have a current opinion.
It might be worth noting that this is a review of their first album. It’s not that difficult to work out, given the title of the article and the picture, which you have obviously (based on your comments) seen.
Yes. But why review a four year old album? It makes no sense? It would be more logical to review something more current? With just a little research you could have commented on something more relevant.
If you did ‘a little research’ you’d see that the previous album I reviewed was a 42 year old album. Unless ‘Planet Jedward’ is no longer available, it is still relevant to the music listening public. Do you not listen to old music because it’s not relevant? If so, I pity you.
For what it’s worth, I take requests for album reviews, and this album was requested. So I reviewed it. I will happily review their most recent album for you, if you like?
