High energy brit pop might be a bit too sweet for some.
“Cheeky for a Reason” is a high energy brit pop romp that will bring a smile to your face and a spring to your step. However, the album is so sugary sweet, it’s hard to listen to all the way through without feeling sick. In fact, some songs are borderline annoying. The strength of this album is its handful of single-ready songs. This album isn’t doing anything new or particularly exciting but it’s got a few summer jams worth listening to.
