I really anticipated this a lot, but honestly this didn't impact me as much as I thought it was going to...the production did not save the tracks from his soulless voice like it did in Blue Neighborhood...I really thought it was going to be different, but I hope he attempts to explore his voice a bit more in the future...lyrically he still is strong, but several tracks just have the laziest bridges ever that could have been so different and elevated the track to another level instead... :-?

Love the album. Melodrama of the year for me.

The highlights of the album for me are Plum, My My My and Dance to This.

Plum is catchy, whilst still delivering a poignant narrative.

I love the whole album but yep, those 3 are the ones that scream “hit” in every single note. I really hope he releases “Plum” as the next official single.

My three highlight's would be "Plum", "Bloom" and "My My My", followed by "What A Heavenly Way To Die" and "Lucky Strike".

I don't know why, but around two weeks after the release of "Dance To This", i got over it so fast and the album release didn't make me loving it again.

The production on this is great like his debut some of the lyrics are great (not a fan of how clumsily Plum is written though). But like as been said before at times I kind of wished someone else was singing the songs his voice is so flat and at times monotonous.

The album is cute but not as good as I was expecting.

This is my exact feeling about the album. This This (bonus track) is probably my favorite.

In its second week this fell from:

#10 to #57 in the U.K.
#4 to #44 in the U.S.

Ouch :(

He's already released half the album as singles, suchba shame that's basically it with the era!

This is a cute album but there are too many ballads for a short album. He should have more bops on his next album. My My My, Dance To This and Bloom are great songs.

I kinda hope he releases a full uptempo album next to balance this discography.
