Album Review #5

The #5 Review of “Modern Dating Tips”

What great pop! “Beauty Secrets” is a hit single waiting to happen! Catchy as hell, with a great, hooky verse and an equally incredible chorus and a terrific vocal. “Love Stained Eyes” is a beautiful song, meticulous construction with an inventive chord progression, and those double-tracked vocals and expressive strings; this one sent chills up my spine. I love the background vocals at the beginning of “Up & Out”; this song shows Jensen’s wide vocal range to great effect, and again, the song is catchy to the max. I’m most enamored with “Askin’ You Out,” a warm and wonderful tune that recreates that weird feeling of wanting to go out with someone and being afraid to pop the question; some really nice background vocals here, too. A thoroughly charming song. – – (“Pure Pop Radio” – Fairfax VA)
