JLS – Beat Again

JLS are lovely lads, I’m sure, but is this the best their team could come up with after their X Factor semi-success? You’d expect more marketing expertise from such a vigorously relentless machine than the release of one of the least remarkable singles of the year. It sounds so late 90s – a time when boybands were already starting to go out of fashion – that it gives me flashbacks to being 20 years old, drunk, incapable of getting up to turn off Top Of The Pops.

The lyrics are depressingly based around heart-failure. Not broken hearts or heartstrings – actual, fatal heart collapse. And the fact that words about hospitals and CPR are occasionally fed through autotune makes it seem even more like your actually listening to the dying words of a stabbed man as a cat walks across the keys of a Casio organ.

But the music isn’t the worst thing about the video. It’s the dress code that flummoxes me. One of JLS is wearing a bowtie, while the little one – the one with the infant girl’s voice who looks like Howard The Duck – is clearly flouting all the rules. His shirt’s unbuttoned to his navel – and surely that kind of arrogance will rile the rest of the JLS posse?

I predict a shirt-button-code-based split is on the cards.

    I know everyone is allowed to have their own oppinions but surely theres a difference on having an opinion or completely slagging them off.
    i dont agree with this review one bit, not just because i am a jls fan but because i generally think the single is good as they are now being compared to NE-YO and akon because of it. Also their style is very fashionable and is a whole lot nicer compared to most people in this world

    well i dont agree with anything you just said, totally have it wrong! ‘The lyrics are depressingly based around heart-failure. Not broken hearts or heartstrings – actual, fatal heart collapse. And the fact that words about hospitals and CPR are occasionally fed through autotune makes it seem even more like your actually listening to the dying words of a stabbed man as a cat walks across the keys of a Casio organ.’ the song is actually about when someone you love goes away and you want them back so bad and if you dont get them back your heart wont ‘Beat again!’ and at Marvins part, ‘If I dided yeah would you come to my funeral would you cry, would you feel some regret that we didn’t try, or would you fall apart the same as I?’ thats about if he died and they werent together would you go to his funeral, would you cry because hes dead would you feel some regret that you two didnt try now that hes gone or wouldyou fall apart like he did?’ JLS are amazing and their fans love them, none of them sound like Girls? or look like ‘Howard The Duck’ i’m sure you wont have many people agreeing with what you said. Split? they’ve been together for already nearly 2 years, i say 2+more years!

    How dare you say that! Youu aree a sickoo!! Beat again is Amazing!! there dress sencee iss MINT andd Aston showing his 6pack is not arogant its lovily because all there fans love it!! I lovvvvvvvveeeeeeeeee them and beat again! so who ever you are shut up!!

    Posted July 10, 2009 at 9:40 am | Permalink

    Not to be rude or anything but i think theres no explanation for this harsh review other than the reviewer is jealous, because its obvious that aston is gorgeous and doesnt look like Howard the duck. all the boys are handsome and cute plus their dress code is on the top notch everyone knows that so a bit silly to talk about JB ’s fashion here.

    Is your opinion at the end of the day but be warned when the single does well as they’ve worked hard for it and deserve every single success !

    First off, “but is this the best their team could come up with after their X Factor semi-success?” can you name a runner-up that came out of the X Factor with a better single than this? No, I don’t think you can.
    The lyrics are for the metaphor of ‘love’. Listen to it, you might learn something.
    And they do not sound like last 90’s/early 00’s. They have a new R&B/Pop sound similar to acts such as Ne-yo, Akon, Chris Brown etc. Would you rather have a band like this or another molded, white-suited band like Westlife? Search ‘Shy of the Cool’ on youtube; another one of their songs.
    And why pick faults at their fashion sense? I thought the review was meant to be about their sound? Plus what’s wrong with expressing your personality with clothes? It’s what makes you an individual.
    IMO, JLS will be around for a few years. They have a huge, growing fanbase and check where they are in the album chart on itunes.

  • Posted July 10, 2009 at 10:31 am | Permalink

    Becky is right – JLS are better than Westlife.

    And Briley is right too Swineshead – you are a sicko.

    In fact, the JLS fan club all make such salient points I bet you now feel thoroughly ashamed of yourself.

    I have heard of constructive critisism but this definately isnt that! To be honest i really dont think you have a right to just completely slag off peoples success!! Well i mean, your not successful like they are, i may not know them that well but i am very happy for them because making something of yourself is great whoever you are!! I know everyone has their own opinion and i can understand you maybe not liking the song but you dont need to go as far as making horrible comments about their looks and voices, to me that just seems as if you are jelous! And to make faults with their song lyrics is just pathetic…you dont know how important these may be to JLS! All singers useually write songs about life experiences and this could of been one of their life experiences they have wrote about…to make fun of this is just totally out of order! And by the way about the looks comment do you have millions of fans all over the world in love with you?? i dont think so!!!! Obviously all of these faults you have picked with JLS and their song has just shown really how jelous you are! I know that many if not all people will agree with me when i say you really are pathetic!! I really cannot wait until the day you make a successful career (which will be 10 past never) because if i know it is you i would make sure i was first to pick out EVERY SINGLE bad point about you and EVERYTHING you do! Im pretty sure you really wouldnt like it! And havent you ever heard of the phrase ‘nobodys perfect’?? Obviously not, but i will tell you one thing YOU ARE CERTAINLY NOT PERFECT!

    i thought this was supposed to be a review not slagging them off god.
    hmm what till 6pm tonight and see how many comments u have bout jls on here and evry1 guarenteed will say there sucessful, exctremely good looking, individual sound, and amazing fashion sense. have u been on the jlsofficial website have u seen how many fans are on there, have u been to a jls concert and heard girls scream for them like i do. Have u ever met jls and relised how generaly nice they are, how chatty and friendly they are and how hot they are in person. lets see you try and do better in a music vid lets see how many fans u have at the end let me guess none. nobodys perfect but jls are pretty much the definition of perfection. ilove and always will love jls.

    “…listening to the dying words of a stabbed man as a cat walks across the keys of a Casio organ.”

    I assume this cat knows how to trigger the Portamento (or ‘glide’) setting which is key to the monophonic characteristic of auto-tune.

    Blimey, I bet Paul Morley never had to put up with this sort of shit.

    If you decide to make a music video Swineshead, I’ll help you out. I reckon we could knock up something pretty special. My cat would be well up for walking across the keys of a Casio organ.

    yeah sorry got that a bit wrong LOL i agree with flotsky that swinehead needs to do a video because they have totally slagged JLS off but i agree with april because it will just show how incredibly CRAP they are! And like april said how swineshead will need lessons from JLS

    JELOUSY again ha seems to be all the men who are jelous i wonder why that could be…because they can sing are increcdibly good looking have good dress sence write good songs are successful and oh not to forget they have all the girls in the world totally in love with them! Funnily enough unlike all people who have wrote horrible comments on her !!!!!!!!

  • Posted July 10, 2009 at 10:58 am | Permalink

    This is a woeful example of what happens when you get people together that can actualy sing but give them the same treatment as someone who can’t.
    All this vocoda treatment is totally pointless but helps to make this band sound as bland as all the other chart fodder.
    The song is the usual constantly repetative chorus, drilling into yuour head but ultimatly forgetable.
    It’s a shame because having sat through their performance on Britain’s Got Hardly Any Talent, they sounded much better than all the rest, now, they sound the same.

    Don’t worry girls, I’ve heard that they ALL have big cocks…..

    thats sooo funny, its a bit mean, but really funny, they seem really nice people, but the music vid is a bit lame, they could have done so much better then that! its a good song and really catchy, but the vid is rubbish, they have a massive room, but they stay huddled up in the middle, and have u seen the bit when the tall one lifts up his shirt, then it zooms in! i find that silly, theres no need to zoom in, yeah, lift up ur top, but dnt zoom in!! hopefully their next vid nd song is much better, cuz they can do sooo much better.

  • Posted July 10, 2009 at 11:00 am | Permalink

    I agree with Stacey but I think Danielle has a point and Amanda was just plain rude. However, Lucy and April should team up with Becky and disagree with Flotsky whilst backing up Danielle and shunning Stacey. Although April could form a breakaway faction and annexe the Sudetenland (or agree with Swineshead).

    Lucy makes some salient points, actually, regarding the comments on the relative endowements of the JLS band members. Clearly, the writer can have little or no direct knowledge of this and the remark smacks of jealousy.

    And I agree, it should be a requirement of all writers to do their own video before criticism. I think you have to out yourself out there and wear the shoes, so to speak, before you can have any reliable basis on which to found a critique.

  • Posted July 10, 2009 at 11:09 am | Permalink

    April, I’m prepared to bet you won’t always love them. In fact I predict in about five years time you’ll be into Emo Gabba Piano Sideboard, and you’ll be totally up on that, and you’ll have all your Emo Gabba Piano Sideboard mates round, and one of them will find your old JLS cassette in your record collection, and tease you lightly about it. And even though their teasing is in good spirits, you’ll feel a bit embarrassed, and know that they’ll never totally respect your opinion on Emo Gabba Piano Sideboard even though you do know a lot about it. And it will all be because of JLS, and you’ll resent them for a few years. When you have kids, you’ll see what they’re into, and you’ll sigh a bit, and like JLS mildly again as you remember just how into them you once were. But you’ll never get that love back.

    Hey Barry. Whassup? We know you never shot Jill, but now you’ve been released, making thinly veiled threats towards the tiny- cocked members of piss poor boy bands is only going to land you in more shit. I urge you to keep your counsel. You peado.

    This reveiw is SOO wrong in soo many ways. Fine have your opinion, but how can you just slag them off? Its such jelousy and its actually quite petty. The songs about wanting someone back and regretting breaking up,not heart failure or some other shit like that, its a song, you’re not supposed to go into to much detail about it, you should just respect that their singing their own music, the music they love and feel passionately about and keeping it JLS fresh for us fans. We love them for it and we always will whatever this reveiw says about it. This reveiw is wrong in soo many ways, “One of JLS is wearing a bowtie, while the little one – the one with the infant girl’s voice who looks like Howard The Duck” That really pissed me off, for one THEY HAVE NAMES and two SHUT UP! Dont talk about JB and Aston like that!!
    Ever thought that we like Astons shirt done up like that? And that we LIKE the dress code? It shows who they are and their personalities in the way they dress.
    Go play in traffic.

    Someones completely and utterly jealous. This is a decent debut single and it will be a sucess. As for the dress code, its their first video, the record company is not going to pump alot of money into a band that could potentially go both ways (flop or do really well) Take thats first video was awful and look where they are now! As for Howard or whatever.. his name is ASTON. Grow up.

    Unfortunately I’ve been busy over at STS and hadn’t yet experienced this amazing exercise in well constructed, grammatical complainery, so apologies for the late comment.

    OMG i soo agree with this review, i dont get how a love song can include someone dying, at least not in the way they portrayed death in this song. there is also little rhyming in the lyrics, its just like someone wrote a paragraph and changed a few of the words so it fit a particular beat. im also hoping that if tthey do any future songs then the videos wont just be about them dancing and being pretty boys but actually have some relevance to the song itself

That was until I realised I’d be able to see them for free at 606 Club, Chelsea with Steve Brookstein in 2011.

    That joke would only work if the people commenting could remember all those years back to X Factor series one. Back when everything was black and white and tiny cocks, the type JLS have, were seen as the mark of a civilised gentleman. Oh, how I wish that old excuse still flew.
