The lyricism and songwriting is incredibly bland and unimpressive. There’s not a single moment on here that has a relative meaningful impact. The production is pretty professional compared to Avicii’s actual projects he released while still alive, but they’re not as lively as his older work. It’s very pop influenced and just ... read more
