Review: Unique II – Do What You Please (FM Track) (House)

This review covers the euro house track Unique II – Do What You Please (FM Track).

This track was released in 1996 as a single.

The track starts with a piano and a synth. After that, the vocals take the track pretty quickly into the first verse. The vocals are backed by a clap.

After that, the vocals take the track into the main chorus, bringing in a full drum kit in the process.

The vocals then take the track into the first verse. Male vocals then come in as part of a verse to rap out some of the lyrics. After that, the female vocals take over for another round in the main chorus. The male vocals serve as backup vocals from time to time here.

In the next section, the female vocals do some talking. After that, they do some non-lyrical singing. They then take the track into the next round in the main chorus. When the female vocals repeat the main chorus, the male vocals come back to provide backup vocals. After that, the track fades out.

One thing I do like about the vocals is that they go for the male rap, female singing dynamic. Unfortunately, I don’t hear much from the male vocals. For me, this is a bit disappointing. The ratio each side appears is so lopsided, the male vocals might have been better off not making such a brief appearance in a verse. Instead, just keep providing the backup vocals a bit more. Either the vocals are more evenly split or one set of vocals are there to provide backup. They way they appear as part of just one verse just seems a bit awkward to me.

On a side note, the talking part seems a bit awkward to me. Ultimately, this could have been easily axed, really. I wouldn’t have missed it if it was.

The bassline and piano give this track a nice pleasant sound. This seems to be aided by the slower BPM. It really reflects the theme of the overall track.

Overall, this is a pretty good. It’s got its strengths and weaknesses. The positive sound expressed through the bassline, piano, and slower BPM works quite well. Meanwhile, the lopsided lyrics may have been a bit of a stumbling block for me. The talking part didn’t really do this track a lot of favours. So, a decent track with strengths and weaknesses.
