Danity Kane – “Make Me Sick”
Danity Kane’s album is out now and while I was EAGERLY awaiting this joint, I feel a little let down. Watching them MAKE the record was drastically more entertaining then actually listening to it. I feel cheated!
“Make Me Sick” is a Target bonus track (I mean, who buys CD’s at Target? Really?) and was produced by Rockwilder. THAT’S a name I haven’t heard in a while.
I feel like everyone is screaming at me on this song and it’s all over the place…I’m not really feeling this one. It is just a cacaphonus mess to me. Maybe if the vocals were a little more even and spaced out better….I wouldn’t feel like a wall of Danity Kane screeching was hitting me all.at.once. LOL @ Aundrea cussing — “I’m sick of yo sh!t!” OK, random.
People have asked what I thought of the album — overall, after a couple of listens, it’s fine I guess. But it just doesn’t “feel” as good as their first album I think “Welcome…” suffers from overproduction, some terrible lyric choices, and a lot of
Lazyhandz Danjahandz. HALF of it feels like leftover Blackout (Britney Spears)Â which is no fault of theirs — Danja just uses a lot of the same sounds, rhythms and effects. The vocals seem uneven at times. Overall, I see what kind of feel they were going for, but sometimes they get swallowed up in the music and their personality doesn’t shine through. It’s definitely for the most part a dance record with some R&B & pop overtones rather than vice-versa that.
I loved their first album so much, and could pretty much listen to it straight through. This album, not so much. “Bad Girl” really sounds like a Janelle Monae song (did she write that or something?! SRSLY!). And the song with Rick Ross makes me want to sacrifice my stereo to the Garbage Can Gods, seriously, I hate that song. DO.NOT.WANT.
