Lost In A Melody
A perfectly crafted run of sensible pop music from beginning to end, True is an EP that isn’t afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve, but also refrains from trying to achieve anything other than showing you a good time. There’s no over-the-top boundary pushing or ahead-of-the-curve production techniques here, it’s just a thrilling collection of songs that are full of soul and class. You don’t have to think, you don’t have to know your Tumblr memes and you don’t have to spend all day and night twerking in the club to understand and enjoy this. True has universal appeal, and that’s a rare thing for anyone to attain, let alone the sister of Beyoncé Knowles.

Been listening to a load of upcoming work by various artists, and I have to say I’m very impressed. They’ve been working hard, and there’s some pretty amazing stuff on its way this year.

In particular I should mention, N.E.R.D., Nelly Furtado, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Solange Knowles, Asher Roth and Will.i.am.

But added praise goes to Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. Two tracks I heard by these two were unbelievably good. I’m so excited for their actual release and final versions.

And good old Lindsay Lohan has a decent track going around. Bless her. I hope she can finally pull it back together.

Unfortunately I must warn you all to avoid the leaked Gaga stuff. It always sounds terrible until its officially finished. Just be happy we have a remix album for now.

One last thing I learned today. there are about 5 million unreleased Ke$ha songs and demos floating around, its ridiculous. And like 98% of them are better than the songs on her album. Crazy days.
