I guess I am the only one who doesn't mind the music for T8! Maybe I am biased because it was already one of my favorite tracks in RPM
I haven't taught the release yet but the only song I'm not liking much so far is T6 however, I do appreciate a different style of music from time to time so it's all good!
I agree with guys that don't like the music for track 8.
This is one of my least favourite songs of the release, along with Track 3. The shoulder track is the last release was similar, but this was is even more extreme and just noise. We had a good run with shoulder tracks for awhile there from the early 80's, with "Be Cool", "C'est Bleau", "Welcome To The Club" and "This Is How We Rock"....songs that you can hook into the lyrics with and connect.
Many past (although certainly not all) shoulder tracks have been fun type songs (thinking back to "Ravers In The UK", "Hands Up", "J'Adore", "All I Ever Wanted") and the back track is typically more the dance base-filled type. But now the shoulder tracks are very similar to the back tracks. Members' feedback was that track 8's music was not well received either.
Warmup: messy and confusing. Too many bicep curls.
Squat: few too many singles, but at least it's decent music.
Chest: too fast.
Back: too fast, too much upper body. Hang cleans are killing my wrists and forearms. The leg straightening thing is unnatural - it should all just flow. What's with 1/1/2 deadlifts? Get rid of them - they're a quick way to pull a back muscle. In fact, I'm sick of 1/1/2 tempos everywhere. I'm also sick of sudden switches to wide grip when there's no break in the music to do so.
Triceps: messy with equipment and moving around if the floor work is behind the bench.
Biceps: too many fast singles. My elbows are complaining. Bring back slow control.
Lunges: should be a break in the 4/4 and return to the same leg.
Shoulders: proves one point - either there's no member feedback before releases, or the members who do trial the new choreography are deaf.
Abs: sick of the pelvic thrust, and sick of all mentions of 'posterior chain'. I want an ab workout.
Cooldown: never get to experience it in full, because CX beforehand is making all subsequent classes run late.

It's Christina Aguilera.
What is the purpose of shortening artist's name like that? It's stupid as it gives false information.

I know it's Christina Aguilera ;) Xtina is her nickname (better, shorter name)
Taught Pump today. This is only the second week since launch at this particular gym. For the first time ever, I had multiple participants come up to me at the end and ask me if I could get rid of the Shoulder track. I've never had anyone (let alone so many at once) complain about any of the Pump music before. Apparently if I just replace this Shoulder track with one from a previous release, then that would be acceptable to them.
I asked about the moves, they quite like them, just can't listen to the "screech" of the music. One guy even said the song made him feel like he had a hangover...ouch!
CavityCombat:My gym launched this release. Thanks in advance for the tracklist so I knew what to expect. For those who don't like track 8's music, I couldn't agree more! The lyrics are nice, but the bass drop is horrible!
Ok. I think the work out is good, but the music choice is not. :/
