Victorious 2.0 is very hit and miss

The Cast of the Nickelodeon show Victorious just released their second set of songs from the hit show. Victorious 2.0 contains dance pop anthems performed almost exclusively by Victoria Justice. The songs contain influences of rock and hip hop music. Out of the six songs, four are good, one is okay and one is stupid.
The best song is the second single "Take A Hint," which is a duet between Justice and her cast mate Elizabeth Gilles. The song is a dance-rock song that is like a teenage version of "U + Ur Hand" by P!nk. "Get your hands off my hips, before I punch you in the lips. Stop your starin' at my, hey! Take a hint, take a hint," the girls sing in the chorus. The song takes the music of the show in a more adult direction and that's just fine.
Another standout song is the cover of "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds. The song features a more modern take on the song and Justice shows a little more emotion on this cover than she does on the other songs. The song doesn't trump the original but it sure comes close.
The worst song is "5 Fingaz to the Face." The song features the entire cast rapping and is a terrible rip off of "You Can't Touch This." The song is so bad I'm done talking about it.
"Make It In America" is a dance-pop song about making it big in America. The song was written by Justice and Martin Johnson, lead vocalist of Boys Like Girls. The song isn't the best but it's a good song that'll be stuck in heads all over.
This EP is definitely worth checking out and it goes to show that the cast of Victorious will only continue to make catchy songs from a great show.
Below is the song, "Take A Hint."
