Anyway, the song was “Dynamite,” and the thought was, “You know, this might be the best song Max Martin ever made.” Even as the thought occurred to me, I recognized it was crazy.
It's been six years since Brisbane-born twins Jessica and Lisa Origliasso brought their pop-rock fusion back to their homeland..it was well worth the wait. Sure, all the decade-old hits were still there - ' Hook Me Up', ' Untouched' and '4eva' - but in place of the angst-ridden teen anthems of Veronicas' past, audiences were treated to a more stripped-back, mature and humbled version of the pop fare by the now 30-year-old identical twins.
They disappeared, at least to American eyes, for seven years.
In that time, they've been invested in self-discovery and health, exploring new sounds and new friendships.
I dunno, pandering to the lowest common denominator and laughing all the way to the bank or something. I knew the Backstreet Boys were largely inconsequential.
They were talented entertainers, of course, but they weren’t artists; they were just the vessel for this song.
