Song recommendations: Moby, Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy and more

Moby

How about that? Moby is back with Everything was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt. Sure, you won’t find anything compared to Lift Me Up, but The Sorrow Tree will remind you of the electro era when Moby dominated the charts.

It’s been a month since Justin Timberlake released Man of the Woods into the wild. The Guardian’s Alexis Pertridis review title “From plain bad to bewitching” and a three-star score wasn’t a good omen.

While it wasn’t as good as the previous 20/20 Experience, I ended up liking it. One song in particular immediately struck my attention: Breeze Off the Pond. Calm, with a positive message, I recommend giving it a listen. (True story, I heard the song in my sleep for a week).

Come Fall Out Boy’s MANIA, as the band decided to push its release from September to January this year as “it felt very rushed,” with the end-product not as good as American Beauty/American Psycho. Again, Sunshine Riptide stuck in my mind with its reggae-like and upbeat sound.

Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues falls in the same category: a change in style from previous records, in this case, debut Songs About Jane; nevertheless, opening Best 4U is catchy, but calm, and for me the best of the 16-track record.

Remember my review of Tove Lo’s blue Lips? I gave the album a go, and ended lo..ving shedontknowbutsheknows, as it is “fresh and chilled.”
