Earth Beat Movement - Be Stronger (Self-published)

In our review of '70 BPM', Earth Beat Movement's album from last year, we still declared ourselves unconditional fans of the Tuscan band, but unfortunately we weren't as taken with this successor. Title track 'Be Stronger' is still a more than decent opener, and 'Part Of A Plan', the dubstep-infused 'City Light' and 'Find Our Way', a duet with PieroDread, could all convince as well, but songs like 'Darling Music', a rather weak ode to the power of music, or 'Neena's Dream', lyrically just aren't potent enough, tracks like 'Tell The People' and 'Who You Are' just sound too to poppy, and the dancehall vibes of 'Fyah Alarm' simply aren't our cup of tea. Our apologies to Earth Beat Movement, but on 'Be Stronger' we'll take a pass.
