(Album Review) “All About Luv” by MONSTA X

K-Pop has been the absolute jam as of late.  Madness To Creation has decided to dive into some K-Pop to see what the fuss is all about.  The first album that Madness To Creation is checking out is "All About Luv" by K-Pop sensations Monsta X.  They released this album awhile back to rave reviews. "In the heat of the moment, when you're all alone and out of breath" croons Monsta X with that sexy ambiance.  The way that they sing it with passion immediately draws the listener in.  In the first verse and chorus of "Who Do U Love", the listener will immediately bop about the room as Monsta X sweeps you away with their tremendous harmony.  Usually, I'm not a fan of hip-hop bars for collabs in pop ditties, but French Montana adds that swagger in the second verse of the song.  The finger snaps...

The stage setup immediately felt like Christmas.  There were massive snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, along with large gift boxes and Christmas lights were neatly decorated all over the stage.  98 Degrees certainly wowed the crowd with their harmony and they also treated the crowd to...

MTC’s Throwback Reviews: Featuring Abz! From 5ive to Big Brother to Abz On The Farm

Disclaimer:  This is not a review on the British boy-band group Five(5ive), however, this is a review on Abz and his brief solo career that landed him several top 20 hits in the U.K. Out of London, England, Abz was born to a Turkish and Irish family and was one of the five selected in an audition to be part of Simon Cowell's British boy band Five(5ive).  Five would win a Brit award, an MTV award, and an ASCAP songwriting award while selling over 1.5 million copies in the United Kingdom alone, Five would see moderate success in the United States(obviously not to the level of Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, or 98 Degrees).  After Five split in 2001, Simon Cowell signed Abz to Sony BMG and proceeded to release his only solo album entitled "Abstract Theory". "Abstract Theory" had Abz peak at Number...
