There're good and horrible moments. His voice is pretty decent but he needs to stop using too much awkward high notes. The production is fine.
Best: Paris in the rain, Paranoid, The other, Enemies, Chasing FIre, Breathe, Never Not
Worst: Comfortable, Come Back Home, Question, Easy Love, Adrenaline
"I Met You When I Was 18" is a great pop album. Lauv is such an amazing artist and he deserves more and more attention in this industry.

(10/9/2020) - My opinion on this album have changed quite a lot. Biggest issue here is probably longevity.

I decided to revisit Lauv's older work after listening to the disappointment that was "how i'm feeling." And wow - "I Met You When I Was 18" is filled to the brim with bright, punchy production and charming lyricism. One of my favorite pop releases in recent years and a very solid exhibition of Lauv's appeal as an artist.

best: never not, paris in the rain, i like me better, breathe
worst: question, easy love
this "playlist" is better than his album. like most of this album fucks so hard. it's smooth and buttery like pop but has some interesting elements to it. there's definitely an indie influence here. this is the album that made me fall in love with lauv as not just one of my favorite performers, but producers, writers, whatever. he's great. even though this isn't meant to be an album in his eyes, it's a great body of work.
