Gary is an amazing talent for our times. Album could've been a bit better, but it's cool to see him splice the blues back into pop.
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.
I'll say this (and its probably because I'm a fan boy) but I feel like so many artists try and do the diverse genre thing and are all over the place and it just doesn't work. For me, his dabbles into R&B/hip-hop just work. But I'm sure that's where most people will get tripped up.
