I like to play CD's in my car, and since this CD was never released here in the U.S., I had to order it from Amazon. I have been playing this CD on repeat since I got it! I loved the first 3 songs on the CD that were released as singles, so naturally I liked the other songs as well! I think it was definitely worth the money and it is a great CD! (I love his island accent!)
I bought this because I had heard that if I liked Jay Sean,or Jason Derulo I would like IYAZ's cd. Turns out that it is a really good cd, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes the artists I mentioned above. For those who wonder the musical style is feel-good pop with a little hip-hop flavor. Very good!
One of the most infectious club tracks I've heard all year, `Replay' has been playing over and over in my head since I heard it (probably because I have it on instant replay on my ipod...haha, like the song). It reminds me quite a bit of Sean Kingston's `Fire Burning' and I mean that in every `good' way possible. Like if Akon sang `Fire Burning' you'd get Iyaz's `Relay'. It's infectious, fun and totally memorable, with witty lyrics (even if the general scope is nothing new) and a likable factor (how can you NOT LIKE a song like this). I'll be listening to it for a long time to come, I just know it.
This album was released in the U.S. on February 9, 2011. And it was available on amazon and itunes for awhile. And then they stopped making it available for digital download not to long ago. I do not know why but they are re-releasing this album and the review under this pre-order version said the earlier edition was out of print or unavailable.
Iyaz = best island voice yet. I can't wait for the new single Pyramid. The club version releases December and the radio version in January. Iyaz and Charice tear-it-up! Charice is the real life Shorty you can't get out of your head!!! Charice's last two albums Charice and My Inspiration are both certified Platinum in her home Country. Being featured on Charice's new album releasing in February should help Iyaz. Finally they get to work with someone their own size ;-)
