Classic Album Review: Boomkat | Boomkatalog.One

Your little sister will love this California duo's poppy, playfully melodic dance fare.

This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


MEMBERS: Vocalist-actress-model Taryn Manning and her more musical-centred brother Kellin.

HOME BASE: Beside the pool in LaLaLand, waiting for Jared and Chloe to call.

MUSICAL GENRE: Hip-hop for the top of the pops. If Deee-Lite, One Ton, Bran Van 3000, Nelly Furtado and T.A.T.U. didn’t exist, these kids would have the market cornered on playfully melodic dance-pop sampledelia. Since they all do exist, though, that renders this unexceptional album rather superfluous. Especially since Taryn’s vocals seldom rise above tolerable and Kellin’s musicality rarely exceeds passable. Still, your little sister will love it.

PERFECT ALBUM FOR: Hiding from your little sister to make her cry.
