Jesse McCartney - Leavin
Owain Paciuszko 13/06/2008
Sounding like Michael Jackson singing over a Timbaland produced version of the Rugrats thing this does so many things that so many other current R'n'B pop songs do that it's merely a checklist of elements. Multitudes of backing vocals swamping the chorus? Check. Little whiny electro noise whistling between channels? Check. Basic structure and distinct lack of imagination both musically and lyrically? Check. There's nothing about this track to set it apart from any other song of its type in recent memory, by the same stroke, it's so desperately inoffensive that I probably hate it even more!
