Johnny Favourite

New and Notable Releases

Rating: N

ht Album (Universal) Rating: N

If Johnny Favourite somehow thought that by removing the now-dreaded swing tag from his handle people might take his music more seriously, he’s in for a shock.

For all their electric sitar samples and big-band overtures, Favourite’s new bag of disturbingly straight-faced power ballads, wacky novelty tunes and Boomtang Boys remixes may be even more hollow than his swing thing. Stripped of even a hint of irony, The Tonight Album could generously be called a comedy album without the laughs, although whoever convinced Favourite to do a reggae version of Let’s Do It may well be the funniest person in the country right now.
