Let’s be honest: Anthony Callea’s make-or-break comeback single of last year, Oh Oh Oh Oh, wasn’t up to much. The inane lyrics weren’t helped by Callea’s strong vocals being drenched in every studio effect known to humankind.
It was a particularly puzzling release because Callea had a surefire pop hit in his arsenal — Last To Go, the title track of this newly released EP, does everything Oh Oh Oh Oh doesn’t, juggling some Guetta-fied vocoder and dancefloor beats with a gorgeous, soaring, hands-in-the-air chorus. It’s easily the best song the pocket rocket’s ever put his name to.
Elsewhere on this seven-song EP, Callea goes into ballad mode on Tangled, offers up another slice of camp dance pop with Last Night, collaborates with Paul Mac on the ace gay anthem I Don’t Care What You Say and even lays down acoustic versions of Last To Go and Oh Oh Oh Oh.
