Remember when people were dismissive about Kylie and then she brought out 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' and instantly became a national treasure? Well it's that moment for John and Edward now - this album makes you want to jump up and dance, it's amazing at full blast in the car, and it's brilliant to sing along to. Buy it and love it before you get left behind...

A GREAT 'POP' ALBUM FROM THE JEDS/Jedii.

If you like 'pop' then you should like this album which is a substantial improvement over their last album (of cover songs).
The album opens with the brilliant Eurovision anthemic track - Lipstick (the extended version, not the single), immediately followed by the really catchy uptempo - Bad Behaviour, their second single from the album.
Track 3 Everyday Superstar - starts with some random talking, has a good catchy beat, this track grows on you;
Track 4 My Miss America - A lovely softer song which is just as effective as the more upbeat numbers (don't you just get a picture of Britney Spears every time you hear this !!!);
Track 5 Your Biggest Fan - Starts slow then building in the chorus - a total 'ode to Britney' but a good song nonetheless;
Track 6 Distortion - Straying a bit from most of the other tracks, but still a great song, sort of a cross between Rave/Dance/Pop/Hip-hop almost !
Track 7 Pop Rocket - Possibly one of the weaker tracks, but not a bad song;
Track 8 Saturday Night - A track that grows on you, love Edwards (?) laugh at the end;
Track 9 Techno Girl - Brilliant pop song, more of a dance track than some (2nd best contender for next single);
Track 10 Wow O Wow - Really different, much slower than the rest of the album, but grows on you, you can really hear the JLS influences here (one or more of the members of JLS wrote this track);
Track 11 Celebrity - Another great uptempo pop track, really catchy;
and finally Track 12 - Hold the World - This is a fantastic song, vaguely remeniscent of Westlife, a great finish to the album. This should definately be their next single (hopefully ........)
One of the few albums that you can play from start to finish, over and over, without wanting to skip any of the tracks.
Hey, Jedward may not be the best 'live singers' in the world, but they do seem to be really good singing acapella, and they exude that elusive X Factor in bucketloads. NOT WINNING the X-Factor was possibly the best thing that could have happened for them !!!
