Sleep Deprived Music Review: Starchild & The New Romantic

a4005693735_16

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

  1. It’s not cheesy. It’s not without romantic sentiments but the songs are more subtle than the usual R & B tracks.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Watch this video!
