Royal Headache – High

Royal Headache = Noddy Holder + EZTV

High builds on the foundations of the “upbeat” and “infectiously catchy,” building off solid hits “My Own Fantasy” and “Need You,” and then, much like a roller coaster, drops off an edge with the track “High”—the latter having less than inspiring lyrics while trying to maintain the punchiness of the former two tracks. But don’t worry because the fun picks up soon after with “Another World,” and all is smooth sailing from there—especially when the track “Garbage” punches through my speakers and through my chest with its delicious rocking sound. So, reader, dig this: Overall, this album has me jumping about with a certain youthful giddiness that I thought was long lost on my more youthful self—it’s simple and to the point with high-charged poppy excellence. –Nick Kuzmack
