Description

"Get Even" by Brother Beyond is an emblematic record of the late 1980s pop scene, released in 1988 at the peak of the band's fame. This album captures the quintessential sound of the era, blending catchy pop hooks with smooth production and danceable beats. Despite not achieving the legendary status of some of its contemporaries, "Get Even" holds a special place in the hearts of those who cherish the vibrant pop landscape of the 1980s.

The album's standout track, "The Harder I Try," produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, is a perfect encapsulation of the upbeat, infectious pop sound that dominated the charts at the time. The song's bright, polished production, combined with Nathan Moore's clear, engaging vocals, creates a feel-good anthem that remains memorable for its catchy chorus and optimistic energy.

Another highlight is "He Ain't No Competition," which further showcases the group's knack for crafting pop tunes that blend harmonious vocals with a compelling melody. The track's synth-driven arrangement and rhythmic bassline exemplify the production style that was a hallmark of the era, making it a quintessential 80s pop song.

"Can You Keep a Secret?" delves into a slightly more subdued, romantic territory, highlighting the band's versatility and Moore's ability to convey emotion through his vocal delivery. The track's smooth, melodic flow and heartfelt lyrics offer a contrast to the album's more upbeat numbers, showcasing the depth and range of Brother Beyond's musical repertoire.

The production of "Get Even" is characteristic of the late 80s, with a polished sheen that emphasizes catchy melodies and lush synthesizer textures. Each track is crafted to highlight the band's vocal harmonies and pop sensibilities, resulting in a cohesive album that captures the vibrant energy of the era.

Lyrically, "Get Even" explores themes of love, desire, and heartache, typical of pop music of the time. The lyrics are straightforward yet effective, resonating with the universal emotions of the band's youthful audience. The album's ability to connect with listeners on an emotional level, through both its upbeat and more introspective tracks, is a testament to the songwriting prowess of Brother Beyond.

"Be My Twin," another notable track, combines energetic rhythms with catchy hooks, further cementing the album's place in the canon of upbeat 80s pop. The song's dynamic arrangement and the compelling chorus exemplify the album's formula for creating engaging, danceable pop music.

In conclusion, "Get Even" by Brother Beyond is a vibrant snapshot of the late 1980s pop scene, offering a collection of tracks that are both reflective of the era and stand out for their melodic craftsmanship and emotional resonance. While it may not have the enduring fame of some of its contemporaries, the album is a testament to the era's exuberant pop landscape, characterized by catchy hooks, polished production, and an unabashed embrace of the pop genre's joyful essence. "Get Even" remains a cherished record for those who hold a fondness for the 1980s' pop music scene, encapsulating the infectious optimism and melodic innovation that defined the period.
