No doubt these ladies are talented and can sure enough sing; however, I have been losing interest in them since "Mary Mary" . Grant it- they have had some great songs on their previous 2 albums "God In Me" "Get Up" etc but I just don't really care for their latest "Something Big"- the title track starts off where "T he Real Party" left off with the same kind of beat and call and response- I found it quite repetive and annoying. "Something Bigger" didn't help. I was annoyed with the fact that the song titles were so similar- the beat and the vocals were annoying to the point of turing off the speakers- the lyrics weren't good either. "Nobody wants to be a loser...." - ha- it implies that people are losers. I didn't really enjoy the album till "Never Wave My Flag" but it didn't last long. "Walking" is just a musical hot mess. The chord progression throughout the song is just strange. It sounds like somebody is hitting the wrong keys on the piano- there is major disharmony in the piano keys being played together. "Survive" was nice- although it was repetive AGAIN.
"Catch Me" was nice. "Homecoming Glory"- for me- was doomed from the start because one of my favorite songs ever is a song titled "HomeTOWN glory"- and it just didn't work for me.
2 out of 12 songs.
One of the BIGGEST factors of this CD that made it unenjoyable is the repetiveness of single words or simple phrases- that didn't really come together as a chorus.
