What's the story?
DAY26 is the self-titled debut album from the winners of the MTV show Making the Band 4. They are hand-picked by hip-hop mogul Diddy himself and MTV viewers to be the \"next ultimate boy band.\" Along with Diddy, the R&B album was produced by heavy hitters in the biz, Mario Winans and Bryan-Michael Cox.
Is it any good?
Day26 has been called a mix between 112 and an urban *N Sync. No doubt, these boys can sing, and sing in harmony and all over the scale a hundred times and back again. There are some fresh attempts at mixes, but by track 5, boredom sets in. The lead single "Got Me Going" has a cool drum beat/hand clap-Will Smith thing going on, with some dramatic synthesizing and pretty piano and strings in the background. "I'm the Reason" keeps a jungle beat with drum rhythm and chiming that give it a little interest under the Jackson-esque vocals. After that, there ain't a whole lot to write home about, other than some very similar, slow, R&B beats that leave you wanting a little more of that Diddy "uumph."
