First Listen Review: Alesso – “Forever”

alesso-forever-cover-art

Genre: House/ EDM

The Good: This album comes nicely this time of year. It has the mood of a sunset whilst sitting outside an English pub in a seaside town. It’s housey, but not too upbeat. It’s poppy, but there is a blend of instrumentation with chorus that doesn’t make it repetitive. There is also a good collection of additional singers added to the songs like Calvin Harris and OneRepublic.

The Bad: For playing at a party, this album lacks the necessary loudness or pounding bass. It’s often more light house for listening in the car, apart from a few tracks like “Tear the Roof Off”. That doesn’t mean it is a bad album, but i feel this wasn’t what the artist was going for.

Would i Listen Again: Yes
