JLS – Evolution

Nonetheless, the ascent of One Direction’s coy wetness can’t help but make JLS seem like a more vigorous proposition in comparison. They sound irrepressibly on heat but it’s a convincing lustiness. The obsession with going ‘all the way’ does lead to some unintentionally hilarious moments – album opener Dessert kicks off with the dreadful line “Girl, you’re looking like a menu/Everything on you looks good to me” and the metaphor only gets more pained as it goes on. Yet the song contains a one-line interpolation of Silk‘s Freak Me which is more successful than the entire Another Level cover, demonstrating how at ease JLS sound in this glossy environment. 

Have you ever wondered what I thought about JLS? I DID TOO.
