New Santigold album less than masterful
Santigold's debut album Santogold was a classic record. With new-wave/dance/reggae/pop-rock anthems like "Lights Out" and "Shove It." Yet on her second album, Master of My Make-Believe, Santi just doesn't have the punch she used to. While the album is great, nothing is as memorable as some of the songs on her first album. From the Karen O assisted first song "Go!" to the beautifully executed ballad "The Riot's Gone," this album is only just good. It takes a few listens for this album to even be good. At first listen, I wasn't impressed by any of the songs. While the album is worth buying, don't expect as much fun or any songs that make you sing at the top of your lungs. Below is the video for the single "Big Mouth."
