Cody Simpson Surfers Paradise Music Review

CD Review by Liam Butler

Cody Simpson entertains from the first beat of track one of Surfers Paradise.  La Da Dee is a well-balanced ditty that is irresistible to enjoy. La Da Dee is a teen love song that bops along as good as any other popular music track.Surfers Paradise will be adored by teenage girls and enjoyed by the rest of their families.

Cody Simpson grew up on the Gold Coast and this permeates the album like sunshine warms a winter’s day. Cody is a gifted singer who never resorts to forcing tune or resorting to fake angst to create some unnecessary drama to the album.  In Summertime of Our Lives Cody demonstrates his maturity as a vocalist beyond his years, with suburb timing, tone and pitch.  Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound NY has mastered Surfers Paradise for Cody at the high standard he has achieved for the likes of Rihanna, Madonna and Kanye West.

In the albums cover notes Cody suggests two things. Firstly, that we plug in our headphones and let him take us to his home of Surfers Paradise and secondly that we “do something cool”. We should listen to Cody as the young Aussie lad has got some corker ideas.
