article imageReview: Pop group 98 Degrees is back with new album '2.0'

By Markos Papadatos     Jun 30, 2013 in Entertainment
Pop group 98 Degrees are back with their latest CD “2.0” that they released independently. It is their fourth career studio album and their first studio effort in over a decade.
98 Degrees consists of Nick Lachey, Jeff Timmons, Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffree.
“2.0” opens with their catchy lead-off single “Microphone” and it is followed by the infectious “Girls Night Out,” which is certain to become a favorite among their female listeners.
Other compelling tracks on the CD include “Impossible Things,” “No Part of You,” Let Go of My Heart” and “Lonely,” where the band members soar on harmony vocals.
Can’t Get Enough,” co-written by former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is a mediocre offering, meanwhile “AYO” is radio-friendly and very danceable.
“Take the Long Way Home,” co-penned by pop sensation Bruno Mars, showcases their ability to nail high-pitched notes, where the listeners can recall Justin Timberlake.
The album closes with acoustic renditions for their Top 3 hit “Because of You,” as well as their breakthrough single “Invisible Man,” both of which are refreshing and soothing.
The Verdict
Overall, 98 Degrees does a solid job on “2.0” and they showcase a lot of range and maturity. Their CD garners 4 out of 5 stars.
