For the past week, I’ve been trying to write a review for Language by Starchild & The New Romantic. The writing has been going – or hasn’t been going, really. There have been distractions, like naps, trying not to sweat, Prince videos, Netflix and more Prince videos, etc.
I will just tell you what I like about this album. That seems simple enough.
What I like about this album
- It’s not cheesy. It’s not without romantic sentiments but the songs are more subtle than the usual R & B tracks.
- I like Black Diamond. It’s a little bit disco and a little DeBarge. If you don’t know DeBarge, go to Google immediately. I tend to get sidetracked by Chico DeBarge. It is what it is. I’m totally going to watch Chico in between Starchild and Prince videos.
- The songs do not all sound the same. I love it when an album has variety. Black Diamond is not like Ophelia’s Room which is not like Some People I Know. They are all great songs in their own way.
