Aqua / Aquarius : 3 of 5
Even though this band is so yesterday, I decided to buy their second CD since I enjoyed Aquarium so much (I guess they were shooting to name all their albums with words containing the band name!). Overall, this CD isn't as good as the first, but it still has some real stand-out tunes. I like Cartoon Heroes (any song that mentions Spider-Man has got to be good), and An Apple a Day is pretty fun since it's so bouncy. One of the best tracks is Cuba Libre, since it has a great Latin feel, and Bumble Bees takes the spot of the goofy sex song (with lyrics like "I'm in need for pollination"). Halloween is by far the worst track, which makes you glad your CD player has a skip track button! It seems like Aqua was trying to be a little more serious in general (especially since there are a few ballads, too), which is kind of the opposite of why I like them, but this is still a fun CD that makes me smile and sing along.
