Beauty and the Beat - An Album Review

As part of our school, my brother and I each chose an album to listen to throughout that week to review on our blogs. I chose "Beauty and the Beat" by the Go-Go's, which I got for Christmas.

The Go-Go's are happy and fun. Their music is upbeat and great to dance to. They have great harmony. The songs got stuck in my head very quickly. I like to listen to songs while I clean my room such as "Call Me Maybe" and "Brighter Than the Sun" so "Beauty and the Beat" was another great addition to my "Cleaning Up Playlist." They reminded me a lot of Cyndi Lauper. A lot of their songs sound the same and I thought that they could've had a bit more variety, but overall the album was fun to listen to.

The album had 11 songs total, but my top three favorites were "Our Lips Are Sealed," "We Got the Beat," and "You Can't Walk in Your Sleep (If You Can't Sleep)." "Our Lips Are Sealed" sounded as if it could've been the opening song for a movie. "We Got the Beat" is one of their more famous songs and is just fun and happy. "You Can't Walk in Your Sleep (If You Can't Sleep)" had really cool harmony and different singing parts that sounded really great together. (Sorry, I could only find a live video for "You Can't Walk in Your Sleep (If You Can't Sleep).")

I would give this album a 4 out of 5.

Excellent review. I didn't really listen to the Go-Go's when I was younger, but I've learned to enjoy them since knowing Mommy. It is really upbeat, happy music.

I remember this album. I think I was in middle school when it came out. They were the first all-girl band I can remember.

I don't think I've ever heard of this band... you learn something new every day, I guess! :)
