About me

G4

I didn’t expect much from G4. And I didn’t get much.

Bizarrely, the sound levels on the tracks are set so that the music is far too loud, so that the loudest notes sound no more impressive than any other pop singer mumbling along to some trashy hit. And their version of Nessun Dorma, possibly my favourite aria of all time, is horrendous. It’s awful. It has about as much feeling as an anaesthetised slug.

The highest this album ever soars is to the dizzy heights of mediocrity. The group sound deeply uncomfortable with some of the stuff they’ve had to sing, and it seems like it’s an attempt to please a very wide range of people. And they succeed in impressing no-one. At least, not me.
