Love is in the Air | Music for Romance | Louis Banks
Sometimes I wonder if I’m just justifying album name or track name with the music (with my imagination extended when they don’t justify, naturally). Thank God! Louis Banks saves me from such guilty feeling. Wonder how? Simple. As simple as listening to his album Love is in the Air: Music for Romance - II and read my post calling it RomanceLess (RomanceNONE better and apt!)
Some of my readers like my writing when I proscribe an album than when I prescribe. And sure enough, they are going to have a feast with this post. The album has 9 tracks in all and I listened to all of them questioning my own knowledge (experience) in romance: BTW, is there any other meaning for the word Romance other than intimate sharing between lovers? I’m still young, passion in blood, and am not out dated (also open to any *new ideas*). Has any ‘New’ thought on Romance emerged out lately without my knowledge? Hopefully, none other than Louis Bank has invented any new meaning — a new kind of romance that is stripped of all romance, as seen in his music album.
Except for the track Alluring Enchantress, all others border no where near any romantic feel. You wont believe it Mido, some tracks terrified me , on the contrary. What a ghastly vocalese! (Seems the new definition of any romantic whispers in Louis’ music lexicon)
When I was disappointed with a few tracks (and terrified by some), I jumped over to listen to Love is Like a Melody. When you call a track with such a beautiful title, wouldn’t it attract attention? Yes, that’s the trap. But Louis needs to know when he composes such irrelevant music for the theme the album (track) claims, it does drive away his listeners (I, for that matter, am already Out).
One of my friends (a dear one) visited my home the other day with his lover. To make their time pleasant, I accidentally played this album. While he was happily forgetting himself in her, I heard him shout on me ‘HellYouStopit’ and I ‘Stoppited.’
If you want my one word review for this album, let me repeat again (if you didnt notice it carefully):
