Great Mix of Old and New
on July 1, 2011
This is a good pop album. I guess the earlier reviewer didn't actually purchase the album, because if you prefer Cascada's old sound, this album comes with a bonus disc with some of Cascada's best songs from her earlier albums. The best songs from Disc 2 are probably Everytime We Touch, What Hurts the Most, Evacuate the Dancefloor, Fever, Dangerous, Miracle, Perfect Day, Bad Boy, Because the Night... Well, it is her greatest hits, so if you like Cascada, you're going like just about everything on Disc 2. The only song I suggest you skip on disc 2 is "Wouldn't it Be Good". That is without a doubt the worst Cascada song I've ever heard, I have no idea why that song would be apart of this collection, but other than that song disc 2 is amazing if you like the old Cascada style. Disc 1 is where the new material is. If you're a fan of Rihanna, Katy Perry, or Britney Spears this disc is for you. It's pure 2011 pop with elements of r&b and electro. The album starts out with the very radio friendly summer song "San Francisco". If you liked "California Girls" or "Tik Tok" you'll like this song, because there very, VERY similar. "Au Revior" is one of the most unique tracks. A very catchy chorus and some amazing vocal riffs make this one of the standout songs of the album. "Unspoken" is also one of the standout songs on the album. Elements of r&b and a very catchy rap and chorus make this song great. "Pyromania" is a decent song. But it won't hold your interest for long. Enemy is the only mellow, mid-tempo song on the album. It's quite catchy, has meaningful lyrics, and great vocals. One of my favorites. "Independence Day" is my least favorite song on the album, the lyrics are all over the place and fail at telling a meaningful story. "Stalker" is probably the furthest away from Cascada's old style. I actually really like the bridge of the song, but everything else is mediocre. "Night Nurse" is definitely one of the coolest sounding songs. It has a spooky feel to it and is quite catchy. "Sinner on The DancFloor" is my personal favorite on the album. The lyrics are complete nonsense and fun. If you like Britney's newer material, this is the song for you. It's ridiculously catchy. "Original Me" is a fun, but forgetful song. The chorus isn't very memorable, but it has clever lyrics and a neat bridge. The album comes to a close with "Hungover". This is the only ballad on the album. And unlike Cascada's earlier ballads, this one actually makes sense on a dance/pop album. Hints of Piano and Guitar make this a really cool, and meaningful song. A great way to end the album. Overall, you're definitely getting your moneys worth. This is 26 songs for the price of a normal album. The biggest thing this album is missing, is at least one new song with the old Cascada style to please fans. They also could've included some of Cascada's best remixes, because there are some great ones. So, I enjoyed this release, as someone who hadn't heard all of her old material, I definitely got my moneys worth. I think it's worth a buy.
