Nothing Really Special... a little bit grating
on November 30, 2011
The album was $3.99, which is really why I got it. Like a lot of other people who listen to the radio, "Tonight, Tonight" has been stuck in my head for awhile so I figured I may as well. I listened to the samples for awhile, and none of the other songs particularly struck me but... $3.99, right? This is how I have no money.
One thing that's worth noting is that most of the songs on 'Whatever' sound the same.
Apparently they all contribute to vocals, but each song sounds like the same guy going for the high-pitched screechy voice and achieving it well. "Tonight, Tonight;" "Whatever;" and "Forever Unstoppable," which are a lot less painful to listen to.
Actually, "Forever Unstoppable" has a unique sound. It's a lot different from most of the rest of the songs on the album, and that's refreshing because the rest of them are really similar.
"The Only One," is another try for a slightly slower song. Unfortunately, the chorus ruins it.
"Why Don't You Love Me," is the obligatory love ballad. The vocals behind it are more stable than "The Only One," and a lot of the other songs. Demi Lovato compliments this vocalist well. The song itself is a little... bland. But that's likely to happen when it comes to sad love songs, so...
Overall, the album is worth $3.99, but I wouldn't spend more than $5 on it.
Highlights include "Tonight, Tonight" "Radio" and "Beautiful Freaks."
