2014 Albums Update // Part Two

29 August 2014

Probably one of my most anticipated albums of the past year, and with a title that notes both Cher's disappearance from the UK music scene, and the delay of her albums, 'Sorry I'm Late,' is a perfect collection of pop. It comes across a little too bubblegum at times, but is broken down with a couple of honestly heartbreaking ballads and enough hooks to ensure that at least one of the songs is stuck in your head at any given moment. Believe me. Although she's grown and matured, it feels like too much of a transition from her debut, which packed much more edge, and variation. Still, it's great.

Ever since they burst into the charts with the rebellious 'Trouble,' I've been very excited by Neon Jungle. I love a good girl group, so I was watching very closely, and it just so happens the next 3 singles were absolutely brilliant. I expected a lot from the album on the back of it, and was a little disappointed to find only 6 tracks - that didn't even come close to the singles, but still enjoyable nonetheless. One of them was also a cover.

It's a bit of a shame that this has been rushed out, as it can only mean one of two things when it comes to the world of pop - either they're splitting up, or they're doing badly. Both seem pretty feasible, but on the flipside what a collection of singles it is. I, honestly prefer the newer, more dance-y material to their older stuff, but even then the older stuff is still pretty damn good. The new tracks are incredible and catchy, something sometimes pretty rare for a greatest hits collection, and I can't wait to see them done on tour.
