Honestly I was impressed with the album before the Welsh but after I heard verses in Welsh I was sold...

(First listen, may update with more detail)

Update: Unfortunately it's not an 89... It's still good, works great as a gym album and I love the Welsh on the album but other than that there's too few moments where it doesn't sound like a generic dance album, Still good but not AOTYworthy: 70
Idk man.

The high points on this album are washed out by the fact that this is over an hour long and has no real consistency. I certainly enjoyed a fair bit of this but there were some real head scratching moments
