New Song: JLS – ‘The Club Is Alive’ (Full Version)

Published: Saturday 8th May 2010 by Sam

The full version of ‘The Club Is Alive’, the first single from JLS’ sophomore LP, has surfaced. Check out the Stevie Mac produced cut below…

Put simply, a dated hot mess! Lyrically empty, the song fares no better on the production side of the fence either – with its over-reliance on auto-tune and synthesizers. If there’s any justice in this world, the song would travel back to 2001 where it belongs. Truly appalling.

The saddest part of it all is that this will probably do well over here. SMH…

Hit or Miss?

    This sounds like a NSync-rejected song: dated, horrible and shows no talent of a group. It sounds like one person is singing this song.

    I know that Europe accepts anybody as talent, but they look too weird, boring and gay to be taken serious in America.

    However, if Ke$ha, Jason DeRulo and Taio Cruz can have #1 hits in America, then it is very possible for these boys.

    That Is All.

    F****** HELL!! …Well you know how irrelevant boy bands are when they start sampling ‘The Sound of Music’ *DEAD*. I trully feel sorry for all the empty-headed people who will buy this nonsense…smh. I strongly doubt the US market will be fooled though, boy-bands have no place in the music industry…they better save all the promo money and actually produce some credible songs!!

  22. Laura Dee May 9, 2010

    I do like it, but there is too much auto tune in the song, which is a disappointment to be honest.
    It’ll grow on me, hopefully.

  23. Charlie May 9, 2010

    why do you enjoy putting people down so much, if you don’t like it just leave it at that and don’t bother commenting. I don’t think it’s a bad song at all, yeah i agree there’s bit too much autotune (after all they don’t need it as there one of the few bands/singers that can actually sing!) but apart from i like it

  24. …? May 9, 2010

    Hmmm… Let’s see now. Ears cleaned thoroughly. Feet resolutely stuck to the floor. Fingers un-twitching. Heartbeat steady. Head facing floorward and unmoving. Face expressionless, with no urge to smile or frown. Pupils unreactive and un-dilated. Nervous system untroubled by excess adrenaline. Hair on back of neck – unruffled. Breathing – regular.

    ^This is not me preparing to listen to what could indeed be compared to the audio suicide that goes under the name of JLS’ ‘new’ (about as new and as interesting as bread) single, ‘The Club Is Alive’… it is me actually listening to it.

    As you can see, four gay boys who spread vocoder on their vocals more plentifully than butter on toast doesn’t really do much for me.

    Is this supposed to ‘crack’ the States? Oh dear… they’re parading s*** in front of the world that’s gunna make Britain look like a pound for talentless freaks. Mind you, we did a great jod of that at Eurovision didn’t we?
