The Independent
Essentially, this is yet another album of formulaic EDM pop and Latino R&B dancefloor grinders, more market tester than art. Cortana, what is “indifference”?
The Guardian
Melodies are frequently forced and characterless, and many songs possess an almost computer-generated quality: either riddled with counterintuitive combinations ... or resembling other people’s work.
I remember exactly where I was when I heard this. I was walking to the bus stop when I opened Spotify. What would I listen to. That 1985 album was pretty hyped up.
