Trying to stay positive with this release, I was having a hard time thinking about what Fergie was going to do next because well... all the tracks leading to this were without any doubt trash so I was extremely hesitant when giving this a chance.

I must admit that it's dense and it can get boring if you aren't used to long lenghts, however ... read more
