Product Description

Play (Mini Album)

Amazon.com

Composed of winners of talent contests and the star of the Scandinavian film Adam and Eve, the Swedish quartet Play strut the kind of girl power not seen since the emergence of the Spice Girls. But it may not be evident from their music, which is generic, synth-laden Europop buffed with slick R&B beats and polished harmonies occasionally marked by flashes of charm ("Disco Hippie"). The nasally vocals and tinny background of a wan version of Olivia Newton-John's "Hopelessly Devoted to You" is more the norm. The group's spunky lyrics, however, push the tunes beyond purely inoffensive Top 40 techno lite. No wallflowers sitting at home pining after the boy next door, the girls champion independence, self-reliance, and pride on tracks like "Us Against the World," "Cinderella," and "I Don't Get Down Like That." Such positive messages give Play's music a much-needed injection of attitude and originality. --Annie Zaleski

I can't Play this album enough!! Play are obviously very talent girls, their music is the best!! Here's my review of the album:
I'm gonna Make You Love Me (Featuring Chris Trousdale of Dream Street) - A very catchy song!! Faye's vocals are especially great in this song but the whole of Play (and Chris) do a great cover of this song!
Us Against The World - This song is incredibly cute!! All about friendship!! Very danceable and popish!! Love this song!!
Cinderella - Very catchy song about independance!! The girls do a great version of this song.
Hopelessly Devoted - A cover from Grease (originally sung by Olivia Newton-John) Play take this song and give it a pop theme! They do a really good cover of this song!! I LOVE listening to this song!
Is It Love? - A slow song where Anna sings a lot. She doesn't sing that much on the album and this song shows how she can do well when she's given this chance to sing!! This song is very good!!
I Don't Get Down Like That - Great beat to this song!! Enjoyable to listen to and puts a message across at the same time!! Great song!!
Disco Hippie - Very good song to dance to at a party!! Cute and put you in the dance type of mood!! Listen to it and dance away with your friends!!
I would recommend this album to Play fans, pop lovers, basically people who like to listen to good music!! The only downside to this album is it only has 7 tracks!! I LOVE this album!! Faye, Anais, Anna and Rosie are talented and awesome and... I could go on forever!! If you haven't already bought it then go do so!! Right now!! You'll love it!!

This album may not be as good as "Replay", but at least it has some good song. Here is my rating"
1.I'm Gonna Make You Love Me: 3/5 This song is kind of slow, but sometimes when you listen to it too much, it gets boring.
2.Us Against The World: 5/5 This is my favorite song. The music and lyrics are so beautiful. It is about how friends always come first, even if there is a cute boy. I just love the line "Whenever you're near/There is no fear/ It just feels like there's nothing I can do/ You make me feel strong/Cause it's here with you that I belong."
3.Cinderella: 5/5 This is my second favorite song. I like this song better than The Cheetah Girls. Their music is so low and really slow. While Play is really loud and fast. The Cheetah Girls just sound like that they are not even trying. Play is really trying and that is what make it better. It is about how the girls can take care of themselves and that we don't need any boys to save us. I just love the line "I can slave my own dragon/I can dream my own dream/My knight in shining armor is me." and "I'll be there just as strong as he will be there for me."
4.Hopelessly Devoted: 4/5 This song goes from slow to fast.
5.Is It Love: 4/5 This song also goes from slow to fast.
6.I Don't Get Down Like That: 3/5 This song is not really that good.
7.Disco Hippie: 3/5 This song is really a hip hop kind of song.

PLAY is a multi-tlented group and I think that this album and everything they've done in previous years proves it.
'Hopelessly Devoted' was my least favorite song on this album just because, the way they do it makes it sound too.....happy, I guess. Olivia Newton-John's way better on that song.
With 'I'm Gonna Make You Love Me', I think Faye's voice was even better then it is on other songs, and Chris Trousdale was perfect for the part.
I got sick of 'Us Against the World' very very quickly. It's a great song, but it gets annoying after awhile.
'Disco Hippie' is very cool. I like the 'Ooh-Sha-la-la's that they had in that song.
'Is It Love' is a slow song that I'm taking to my school dance next year and I'm going to dance it with my best friend who happens to be a guy.
'Cinderella' is a great song, too, and it was by far my favorite song on the album. I love the way they sing it. It's amazing.
'I Don't Get Down Like That' sounds like it was written about a guy at my school who a lot of my friends went out with and then dumped him really quick. It's a perfect song if you just wanna boogie down some night! :)
Faye and Anais are obviously the lead singers(Faye more than Anais), and I don't think Anna sang lead at all! I don't know if she does on any of their songs that aren't on the album but still, she should sing lead on at least one song!
All being considered, this is an amazing album and I can't wait for PLAY's next one!

This CD is the best! Those 4 girls are a great relif from all the sadness and unhappiness in songs today! They have great voices and i met them 3 times, they are sooooo sweet! They are all my idols, even though i'm a year older than them! They really rock and this cd is the best!! Lemme give you my opinions for the songs...
1) I'm Gonna Make You Love Me~This song rocks! It features Chris Trousdale, formally from Dream Street. Faye and Chris have a great vibe in their singing, and in the music video Anais and chris have a great chemistry going on! It's a remake from Diana Ross and the supremes with the temptations, and they picked the best band to remake it!
2) Us Against The World~ Personally one of my fave songs...wait wut am i saying...the whole CD is my fave! Well this is their debut album and i love this song, it's a song for best friends saying how they are always gonna look out for eachother when it comes to boys and such, it's a great song to kareoke or to dance to!
3) Cinderella~ Another remake, this was originally a song from the group I-5, but they turned it over to Play and they did a great job with it! Anais sings her sweet side and has a great voice in it!
4) Hopelessly Devoted~ Again, another remake, this is from the movie Grease, but it's a faster and in my opinin better version. Anna sounds so grown up in it. Anyone whos a fan of this song, at first you think the grease version is better, then after listening a few times, you get hooked on this song.
5) Is It Love~ A great love song, all the girls sound great in it. Anna dosent sing much in songs, but she has a pretty big part in this one, and let me say she can handle it. It's a sweet song, and can relate to most girls.
6) I Dont Get Down Like That~ finally a song liek this was made!
