*** Not too bad, unimaginative but at least has a semblance of fun unlike the previous two singles. Still, it's laughable that it only lingered outside the top 100 on iTunes after a performance on Australia's Got Talent and could only get into the top 50 by being put on the thingy. A real show that the public was getting sick of Timomatic's shtick. Everything is allowed except originality, I suppose. Last edited: 08/06/2017 15:01
*** Seems that most of the people who bought the first six singles (it's gotta be the same ones surely!) might have collectively decided that six copies of the same song was enough and there was no need for a seventh. Now please stick with that idea guys!
** The [s]king[/s] prince of [s]worldwide[/s] Australian pop is back with a hugely [s]unique[/s] generic [s]smash[/s] song that people will forget about in a few months.
To be honest the situation surrounding Timomatic scoring top 50 hit after hit is just no longer amusing, it's just a bit sad. There's never really anything to enjoy about his music, it's just in-one-ear-out-the-other pop that I can't really care for. I hate to sound elitist or anything like that, because the reality is I can so often be a sucker for mindless mainstream pop. It's just that Australia seems to have created a carbon copy of Taio Cruz that is, two years on, still more nauseating. 1.75
*** It's quite amazing that this ends up to be more formulaic than "Waterfalls". It's fair to say at this rate that regardless of what it's called, his next single will probably just be an exact replication of "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, except it'll probably be of poorer quality because I assume Sony are too cheap to download a proper copy (or they just don't want to give Universal money), so it'll probably be one that they downloaded from YouTube and then awkwardly reformatted for iTunes. I might prefer to listen to that actually.
And of course it's called "Everything Is Allowed", assumably as a double whammy to say that it's ok for Timomatic to release a single that doesn't pertain to downward motion (since the rules of gravity generally dictate that, but in this case everything is allowed, I would assume that more things than normal would be travelling upwards under these circumstances), and also as a way to suggest that his super questionable actions in the "Timomatic" narrative were justified and legal. Clever Timomatic, clever.
And yep, it sure is formulaic, but it's a formula that works to an extent. It sort of takes me back to "Can You Feel It", one of his few singles whose energy isn't completely forced. The whole thing is at least reasonably catchy, so I'm not to dismiss it completely. I eagerly await the full album so I can contextualise it further. Last edited: 30/11/2013 16:46
