OK so far...
"Can't Stop Won't Stop"
is boring, why on earth they picked this as the opening track. I really like I can't cant stop it can't can't stop it
is actually pretty great, it's definitely a grower. I can see why everyone dislikes it though, generic Dance-Pop track. "Climax"
is amazing, duh.
I really appreciate the production of "I Care For U"
. The same with "Climax", it's an R&B slow jam that incorporates Dance/Electronic elements. The vocals are totally outstanding on this one, but the melody isn't that memorable though. Don't think it would work as a single.
is a bit bland. It kinda remind me of his old stuff, don't know. "Lemme See"
is still hot till now.
Oh yesss "Twisted"
is AMAZING! Unlike "Dedication To My Ex" which is totally a "Forget You" rip-off, this one sounds different. I'm not sure how it would work as a single, but seeing that both "Dedication" and "Forget" did brilliantly outside the States, then I'd love it to be one. Oh, and for some reasons, I think it would fit into Christina Aguilera's Back To Basics
is another OK track. It feels relaxing and he delivers another outstanding vocals on this one, as well as in "What Happened To U"
. "Dive" could probably work as an Urban single, not sure though. Both are not the type of songs that I'd like to play over and over again.
"Looking 4 Myself"
is OK. The chorus is really nice. But it's not that similar to "Somebody That I Used To Know" as everyone said. I think it could be a single actually. And i don't see what's special in "Numb"
, seriously. "Lesson For The Lovers"
kinda remind me of "There Goes My Baby". It's really nice but still has to grow on me more.
"Sins of My Father"
I love it, I thought it's gonna be a ballad but glad I was wrong! LOVE IT LOVE IT! It's the sins of my fathaaaa...
should definitely be a single for sure! Not that I like it, even I still think "Scream" is better though, but the dance breakdown really makes this song!
The beat itself >>>>>>>>>
Definitely a [Urban] single worthy. Love the Indian vibes on it. But the melody could've been better, it's not that catchy and I find that the whole song is kinda flat.
"Say The Words"
is bawrrinnggg. Oh, "2nd Round"
- another hot beat that's wasted IMO.
OH YASSS at "Hot Thing"
, this is what I call a BANGER! It's very Trey Songz-ish but I'm complaining.
Highlights: "Climax", "Twisted", "Sins of My Father", "Scream", "Lemme See", "Hot Thing".
Overall, actually I don't want to say this but I'm not impressed like everyone else did. As sambo said, they melodies are weak, though it's really brilliant production-wise. The combination of Electro/Dance elements into his signature Urban sound really works. And I haven't found any tracks that I'm obsessed with, unlike the previous album where "Foolin' Around", "Guilty" and "So Many Girls" totally stole my attention on the first listen.
