Though this project’s sights and sounds can be a bit boyish and boisterous, there are enough cross-genre gymnastics and self-awareness here to keep nay-sayers at bay for a while. What we have here is an outrageously bright talent who renders substance with style, all while encumbered with fears and thoughts that he’ll take to the grave.

This was a tough listen.

I was hopeful for this considering 'Power Freaks' is an amazing single. The other singles released leading up to the album were very underwhelming and boring. There are multiple clear influences here and I don't think he will rise to that level without creating more of his own sound.
