(Island Records)

If your nightlife is in need of a pick me up, you need Too Young To Fight It. There aren't many who can blend perfectly crafted 80's synth, strong falsetto, and powerful guitar solos into one album but Dan Keyes, Young Love's frontman, seems to know what he's doing. "Discotech" sets the mood with its infectious drumbeat and catchy chorus that tells of late night hookups ("I can't help it / The way I'm feeling / It's gonna happen"). "Give Up" and "Closer To You" are both songs of longing with gentle guitars and soaring harmonies that make yearning for the unattainable seem poetic. The album's title track brings a reggaet├│n, trip-hop vibe to the sweaty nightlife Keyes preaches about. Grit, sweat, love, loss, and a little recklessness are thrown in to round it all out. New York City never sleeps and Young Love's got what it takes to keep it moving.
