Eleventyseven: Quota | Posted September 13, 2011


Eleventyseven has been a long time favorite of mine. I was introduced to them when I found their song "Love in Your Arms" for free on I think it was their PureVolume site. I had never listened to any Electro-Pop music before; but I instantly fell in love with them and their style. I could not stop listening to their music. "Love in Your Arms" quickly became my most listened to song on iTunes. When I heard they were coming out with another CD (technically an EP) I was super excited. It has been a while since have come out with anything. I downloaded it and I listened to it, and I listened to it, and I listened to it, and I listened to it. The entire project is super catchy.

The CD starts off with the song "Don't Want to Fall," which picks up where they left off with on their last CD "Adventures in Eville." The song carries on the them of love that Eleventyseven is known for. This time instead of talking about falling in love, they talk about being cautious of love. "Colleges Girls" speaks of the hardships of young love and hits on the immaturity of some guys. "Book of Secrets" talks about a girl who he just cannot figure out.

The first three songs made me wonder if something happened to Matthew Langston to change his views on love. This album took a completely different look at love than "Adventures in Eville" did. Eville had songs like "Nightmare" which spike of his life being a nightmare unless he was with this certain girl. Now he talks about how he cannot understand her and how he needs to be more cautious with love. Maybe he is just growing older, but it seems as if something happened with this girl. Maybe they broke up. I guess I will never know.

The next song is "Divers in a Hurricane," in which the vocals are amazing. Matthews has always amazed me with how smooth and clear his voice is. "Divers in a Hurricane" made me even more in awe of his vocalistic abilities. 

"Quota" for some reason gives off a Hawaiian sort of vibe to me. I really cannot put into words how much I love this song. I am just in awe of how amazing this song is.

Of course "Take on Me" is an Electro-Pop version of the original song by a-Ha. Unless you have heard the original version and grew up with it, I am pretty sure you will like this version even more. In fact I think you will love it. The vocals are cleaner and the song seems to flow even better in Eleventyseven's version.

Overall the album is really good. I cannot really say anything bad about it. From "Don't Want to Fall" to "Take on Me," the whole album is rock solid. Eleventyseven never ceases to amaze me with their vocals and the greatness of their lyrics.

Favorite Song: Quota

Favorite Lyrics: "I don't wanna live my life just meet a quota, taking everyone's orders, marching around like a corporate solder. I wanna live life like everyday is golden. I'm gonna put my life on a hold up. I'm gonna take it over, take it over, take it over." (From the song "Quota")

Get it! | Posted May 08, 2011

Quota is yet another album that fully depicts the energy of Eleventyseven, just one listen to the album and you'll be totally hooked on it. Each song will have you singing along with it halfway through, pumping you full of a nitrous-like energy that Eleventyseven never fails to deliver.  If you haven't heard anything by Eleventyseven, this is a good place to start. Once you've thoroughly rocked out to this album, you'll be begging for more. Luckily for you, this album has several predecessors that are just as energetic and catchy. Go get it on iTunes-http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/quota/id429038695
