Night & Day (Day Edition)
After a year-long wait, The Vamps has finally released the second part of its two-part album, Night & Day.
The first part, the Night Edition, gave birth to catchy numbers like All Night, Middle Of The Night and Hands, which were met with significant success.
Unfortunately, its follow-up, the Day Edition, isn’t as memorable an effort. Don’t get me wrong, there are enough fun, toe-tapping numbers such as Too Good To Be True and Hair Too Long to sing along and groove to.
But the songs just don’t have strong enough melodic hooks to match its predecessor.
With the Night Edition, every track on it sounded like they could be released as singles and they would perform well.
The tracks on the Day Edition pale in comparison, though there are standouts like Just My Type and For You.
Despite the four-man band’s intentions to have two sets of songs with different musical directions, hence the idea to create the Night Edition and Day Edition, the differences between the two aren’t vast.
In fact, they sound quite similar, both sporting that carefree dance-pop vibe. As such, both editions could’ve been just released at one go.
If the Day Edition had an entirely different quality to it – a darker feel, for example – it’d be more interesting and it’d make better sense to release them separately. And the difference between night and day could actually be felt.
