Album Review: Mabel - About Last Night
Mabel - About Last Night
About Last Night; Animal; Let Them Know; Shy; Definition; Good Luck; Take Your Time; Let Love Go; Overthinking; Crying on the Dancefloor; I Love Your Girl; When The Party’s Over; LOL.
While the singles charts seem to be awash with solo female singers so auto-tuned to death that they all sound the same, it is a relief to hear Mabel yet again standing out from her peers on her second album - About Last Night
The whole album feels and sounds like a good night out with the singer embracing pop, disco and hi-energy over the course of this sparkly yet unpretentious album.
Mabel much like Dua Lipa knows the value of a good song. Employing a list of songwriters from America and Britain the quality never drops with every song having a commercial edge.
Highlights include Let Love Go
, which should be heard in every disco from Iceland to Ibiza; Animal
could be a Kylie track whilst Let Them Know
utilises a solid House music groove that takes Mabel to a higher level. The song was released as a single last summer but never ignited the charts.
When The Party’s Over
might be the sound of the party coming to a close, though when Mabel decides to go on tour to promote the album you can be sure that it will be one of the best parties you have experienced.
A good dose of feel good music with songs that will lift your spirits.
