I love when you know 30 seconds into an album that you're going to have it on repeat for weeks to come. I've listened to it at least five times today and am still overwhelmed with how good the first half is. It has stronger points than others, and it's no Aim & Ignite, but Aim & Ignite is perfect as it is -- I don't want another one. The autotuning doesn't bother me too much. It was pretty unexpected and I realize it's just a creative effect and I think it works awesomely with his voice. The writing is awesome and I keep finding myself saying "YES" in agreement to lyrics. Nate's voice sounds better than ever, as if that was possible.
Last night during the Grammy's and I saw the Chevy commercial "We Are Young" is played on and I thought, "wouldn't it rule if they were performing this song on next year's Grammy's?" I'm not putting it out of the question. At least VMA's?! So happy for them with the exposure it's getting already. Deserved.
