It's prescient of you to write that. Most reviews so far are pretty meh about it. I guess the hype machine has me tethered to this thing for the long haul. I've been a fan since Bright Lights, can't stop watching his YouTube videos, and just really dig what he's going after. What about the disc rubbed you the wrong way?
I also dug Bright Lights. I don't want to give off the impression that I hate this album! haha I think it's a good album. I think it's what he needs to kick off his career in the limelight, just not his best. A little too unfocused, but that's also sort of the point of it I'm guessing. Like a demonstration of all of his talents.
