Aly & AJ - Into The Rush

2007-07-17 11:11
Into The Rush is their debut album and its pretty much everything you’d expect from a teen pop duo whose biggest claim to fame so far is having one of their tracks featured on the soundtrack of Disney's The Ice Princess. Think 7th-grade lyrical prowess; tight-harmonizing, sweet-sounding Hillary Duff-wanna be hooks; GO-TV-jiggle-ready catchy choruses and production so spotless and sparkling it makes Hello Kitty look like a horny stray tom. And just when you think it can't possibly get any worse, the sisters raid their mum's music stash to deliver a cover version that turns one-hit wonder “Walking On Sunshine" into a mall-side sing-along. The perfect gift to sedate your fussy-eating, so-clean-she-squeaks little sister.

- Miles Keylock
Aly & AJ? If you think that sounds like the title to one of those feel-good post-Dawson Creek coming of age teen TV drama’s you’d be right. Almost. Actually they’re a pair of sunshine-blonde, singing tweenie siblings who look like what might emerge if the top half of Avril Lavinge had the bottom half of Sheryl Crow grafted on to it because of some medical emergency.
