Review: MO x Caro Emerald

MO x Caro Emerald is an electro swing album filled with love songs such as The Ghost of You and Something For Christmas. You have jazz meeting the sounds of modern house and electronic music. MO x Caro Emerald is another electro swing albums many people ignored and slept on.

Tahitian Skies has a tropical house sound and vibe which meets electro swing and modern jazz. The mod and vibe are totally laid back. The song is about illicit prostitution.

They come from all around nobody checks a thing. Men walk mysteriously then the ladies follow in. Take the quietest giant steps for a cruise in the morning light. They top and stare like they’re all possessed their inhibitions get devoured. Everybody is on a quest and so the rest of the world can wait. Caro’s lips are longing for the taste of another man. Danger is divine underneath Tahitian skies. Knowing every mother lies. But Caro doesn’t mind that.

They live in secrecy at no fixed address. Everyone escapes to get some respite and go rest before the heat is on. There’s a hustler beside the bar has a room with an evil eye with sinister and malicious intent. Heaven knows what he does in the day what he turns into at night. Who wants to know? Everyday surrounding him but his eyes in a fist of rage.

Caro’s attempts to write a letter her boyfriend. However she cannot bring herself to write a letter to her boyfriend. That is what the song Home is about.

Caro’s boyfriend is playing in her dining room. She makes the candles weep. It’s after 4 AM. She got a pen in hand. So Caro refuses to sleep. She stops and starts and starts again. And tries to pretend that this letter she will write to her boyfriend is the letter she will never send.

If that’s what romance is, then what is love? They had our chances which can’t be undone. One weekend in Paris and two nights in Rome. Why did he go home?

The ink is wet and the paper is dry. It’s waiting for the words. An incomplete letter is like an unfinished melody if there’s far too much to say. That is if there is too much to say. From the windmill spinning in her mind and the voice she never heard. Walking blindly under the angriest of skies to the very place they met. One of them remembers and one of them can’t forget.

Caro’s boyfriend spoils her by getting her anything she wants. Especially around and during Christmas. That is the synopsis of Something For Christmas in a nutshell. The song is filled with evocative sounds.

Caro’s boyfriend loves to give Caro things. He gets me ruby encased jewelry for Valentine’s Day. For her birthday, he gives her bubble baths and Champagne rain. He puts Caro on a pedestal. He makes sure her experience, joy, and desires are unforgettable. He thinks there isn’t harm in spoiling Caro. Caro is getting something for Christmas.

Summer was a hot affair. He knows what Caro likes and where they stayed in on Halloween. This is because he says Caro tastes like candy all damn year.

Her boyfriend is sure to put the cherry on top and turn this winter into something hot. There ain’t no harm in spoiling Caro when she gets what she want sand more. She damsels her boyfriend like a sugarplum Queen by wrapping around him in the winter scene. Fireworks and her kisses come in New Year’s Eve. She needs to show him what he does to her. She’s getting something good for Christmas.

Caro dances by herself with the ghost of her ex-boyfriend on The Ghost of You. The Ghost of You is one of the spooky paranormal spiritual jazz songs with a slightly spooky vibe. Things get quite eerie.

It’s 4 AM in the morning. Caro sashays with herself. Couples all in love surround her as their eyes all aglow. All her steps are memorized swaying to a nice rhythm. Patterns of her feet tattoo the floor. Her feet are frozen like ice. Caro dances with the ghost of ghost of her ex-boyfriend. What else can she do since she is all by herself? He seems too far from view. So she dances with the ghost of her ex-boyfriend.

She stays on the floor defying everything. Advances aimed and towards are effective. She’s not saying a thing to a soul in order keep her heart protected. Sirens (other women) think Caro gets in their way. Their logic won’t compute with her logic or viewpoint. Instead she is adding up the hours she spend with everyone but him. He seems too far from view. So she dances with the ghost of her ex-boyfriend. What else can she do since she is all by herself?

They say there’s not much difference between a good man and a long drag from a cigarette. Sometimes you feel it, sometimes you don’t. And sometimes you need it, and sometimes you don’t. But no one likes a ghost.

I rate this album 5/5*****!!
