The Ballad by New Look is this weeks free single of the week.
This song is a good release from iTunes.
Apple has this marked as a pop track.
The music track is a 80′ style with drums and electronic keyboard sounds. The track is slow and repetitive for much of the song.
The song is well sung by a female singers, the lyrics are generally clear.
At 6 minutes is one of the longer free tracks that iTunes have given away.
The song does grow on you a liitle as you listen again.
Overall, this is a good song, it is a little bit slow and plodding for me, it has its moments, but is really verges on easy-listening than pop. The song just feels like it is getting nowhere and fails to grab you. This could be used as background music, but nothing I would actively listen to.
Price (at time of review): Free
