I still need to give this a listen, Luis is always reliable for making a few great pop tracks. Nice job.

His last record was just ok to me. From what I've heard from this record so far, I believe it could be better than One Full Year.

Sounds very disappointing so far in my opinion. His bubbly-cheesey lyrics are really annoying

I'm liking this, honestly. Should I be listening to this before One Full Year?

EDIT: Not loooving it, but I can't say it's bad.

I'll give it a sincere listen, but not expecting much. I'll have to agree with the lyrics, the songs released were amazingly weak in that department

edit: post 11,11 for me. making a wish. BANG

He should just do his hardcore band thing. I hate bands like this.

I can never get into anything with a vocoder. It always seems like a crutch to hide vocals.

I heard Saturday and liked it, but this album is disappointing on first listen.
It just doesn't mesh well together. But there are some highlights. Saturday and What's Wrong, for instance.

I'm so tired of hardcore music, I'd rather hear a vocoder and auto-tuned vocals on top of decent music than some dude screaming for 3 minutes (usually 2 minutes) and understanding 2 words out of 100.

Similar to my opinions about the album. I can definitly see the lyrical regression

Quote:
acting this bubbly around girls is not smooth and will not get you laid. You'll just look like a loser.

This made me laugh. Brilliant.

Do you honestly think there's not enough hardcore bands out there?
