I hated the EP, thought I'd love it since I'm a huge fan and I normally like this kind of music. These clips do nothing for me, I feel like he's trying too hard and the production seems too busy. Like he needs to take a couple of instruments out.
You know the other version of Spotlight was released on his EP, right
Yeah, and I have it and listen to that song pretty often. His EP didn't interest me either. I guess I just associate his voice with rock music more than soul music or whatever genre he's going after here.
I'm not going to listen to these clips, but I really like the EP and will be pumped to get this. I wish it was a little more "organic" in its nature, or even a little more hastily thrown together and lo-fi (like AFI side project Hunter's Revenge), but Patrick has always been interested in glossy production so I'm not terribly surprised with the route this project has taken. I'll buy this first day.
