SS501 – Destination

The South Korean quintet comes back with a darker concept but hardly a darker sound. I am blown away as to how well produced this mini is. I don’t think that SS501 have sounded as perfect and balanced as they do in Destination.

We have described the show as the love-child result of a wild night between the cult loser show Freaks & Geeks, The WB’s canceled-too-soon Popular, and High School Musical on LSD. Who’s the father? We don’t know.

Kate Nash – My Best Friend is You

After the fresh Made of Bricks, Kate Nash comes back with an album that’s better produced, but loses the rawness of her debut. My Best Friend is You still sounds like Nash, but that bundle of quirky energy has now been contained.
