OK let me put my stan mode on. Doo-Wop & Hooligans
was my #3. It's such a brilliant record and it just shows that Bruno's voice is so versatile that he can do any kind of record from Rock 'n Roll ("Runaway Baby") to Reggae ("Liquor Store Blues"), from Pop ("Just The Way You Are") to sexy R&B slow jam ("Our First Time").
However, I wasn't really happy with the singles choice. "Just The Way You Are" was one of the biggest songs ever but for some reason, it's one of my least favorites from the album. It's just plain annoying. "Grenade" however, is a brilliant Pop/R&B record. "The Lazy Song" is average but I can see why they decided to release it. I don't see the point of making the video for "Liquor Store Blues" while the label didn't even bother to promote it to Urban. "Man Down" reached the top 10 on the R&B chart and this one could've done the same. And why they released "Runaway Baby" so late? It should've been released first in the UK following his X Factor performance, and then the rest of the world would follow and it would've gotten a bigger boost and probably would've gone to the top 10 after the Grammy performance.
It's just brilliant as a whole album, urgh, I would've put it at #2 if they had released the right singles instead.
Kanye/Jay not in the top 2? *SHOCK*
So, is it really gonna be between Beyonce and Kelly? Unless the rules changed and anyone else were allowed to vote for Adele but I didn't know about that?
