Jupiter Rising

Spencer Nezey and Jessie Payo have a clear ambition with this album, to make modern r'n'b with real commercial appeal.

The title song is reminiscent of Timbaland's productions for Nelly Furtado and Gwen Stefani. "Go!" sounds like a future hit, Payo's impressive voice bouncing off the kinetic beats. "Hero" is less cloying than other ballads with that name. Payo holds back a little which makes it better. "Wicked" is a sinuous groove that should get dancefloors moving. Payo plays the siren and Nezey backs her up well. His rapping on several tracks is good too. Jupiter Rising seem to be on the rise with this album.
