That's all in taste I guess. I'm one of the few ATL fans that likes Dirty Work. I think it's a solid album and I fail to understand why everyone hates it do much. Musically and lyrically I think it's on par with every other ATL album yet everyone describes it as some giant experiment gone wrong.
I think there's a couple good songs on Dirty Work, but as a whole the album wasn't as good. Their shift to pop-rock doesn't bother me too much, and I think "That Girl" is one of the catchiest songs they've ever released. I just...couldn't listen to the album front-to-back, even when I wasn't paying full-attention to it.
