Summer cut 'She Makes Me Wanna' heads up the set with RedOne-helmed Euro-club beats, while seasonal follow-up 'Take A Chance On Me' is a heart-warming slice of R&B sweet-nothings. In keeping with JLS's strict annual criteria, the remainder of the record continues to evoke the group's own mix of street-wise uptempos and swoon-worthy ballads.
'Do You Feel What I Feel?' satisfies the guys' penchant for sampling a classic by retweaking a Bing Crosby hit to suit their 18-30's party lifestyle, while 'So Many Girls' hears them scouting dancefloors to find 'the one' over a familiar-sounding chorus straight from the '90s - complete with a cheeky nod to B*Witched. That said, there's a liberal sprinkling of duff notes to be found among the party anthems.
'3D' is a techno-snooze affair with predictable lyrics ("I'm going to turn you on like a TV") and 'Shy Of The Cool' is a pan-flat composition of sullen strings that closes the record with the kind of enthusiasm felt before a maths GCSE exam. Unfortunately, the final result is much the same; while the record has its full-marks pop ditties, the majority leaves you feeling that JLS could have put in a little extra revision time.
