I couldn't disagree more that 'my girl' is terrible. True, the lyrics might make some shudder but I feel it's all very lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek a la Discovery. The beat and the groove to the song make it such a pleasurable experience and, as you have noted throughout the album, the vocals are great.
I personally love this album so far. And I have to say, live, chad valley is something else as long as you get lost in the music and I'm looking forward to seeing him again with trophy wife in a couple weeks.
I see it as sugary dance-pop done the way it should be. Cheese doesn't have to have a lack of musical imagination.
