Review - And Then There Were None - Who Speaks For Planet Earth

And Then There Were None - Who Speaks For Planet Earth

2 out of 10

Sometimes, looking for a positive in something is the easiest thing possible. But sometimes it’s like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack - when the haystack’s really a stack of razor sharp nails.

And Then There Were None peddles a strange mix of Euro-dance and pop-rock. Though the rock claim is slightly exaggerated as I haven’t found a clear example of a guitar in this entire album. They may be there hiding behind the sub-par Scooter like beats that infect this.

I give the band kudos for trying something newish - but the fact they’ve not managed to put a single original part in this album really doesn’t help at all. Though a thumbs up for the Richard Marx cover - best track on the album (though clean vocals would have helped it - auto tune and vocoders aren’t always needed).

Back to the drawing board lads?
