I haven't listened to a Passenger album since 2014, and I may not still; I don't want to go any further after hearing 4. I was always a big critic of his songwriting, which was grating and pandering then and tried doing way too much thematically which lead to corny lyrics filled with cliche tropes.

I haven't heard of Passenger in so long almost like 8 years now, famouse for his hit song, Let Her Go which i won't deny, i did listen to in 2013 and the nostalgia on that songs is quite high for me but I will admit his songwriting and technical ability has never impressed me and with this 2021 release Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted it seems like one he not grown as an artist, two still stuck within the same sound and lastly so behind the curve for quite a lazy, easy to digest folk pop ... read more

Boring, predictable and kinda cliché. No need to listen to more than 4 songs to know what this whole album is about. Still somewhat good as background music, otherwise it won’t stand the analysis.

DECENT.

Unoriginal folk pop that only occasionally surpasses the bare minimum to please the soul.

Passenger's latest album already serves its purpose. It's not exactly supposed to be adventurous, but you do get the sense that he's not already doing what he hasn't done before. That said, it is ideal for just kicking back and forgetting about the worries of the world.

Despite not really enjoying anything from Passenger, I still check into his recent output from time to time, hoping that his constant flow of releases would mean he'd stumble into something decent, at least by accident. I will give Michael Rosenberg this - "Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted" is the best collection of songs I've heard from him since I became aware of his music. That does not mean I think it's good.

This record is inspired by a recent breakup, and I think it's ... read more

Terrible album from a terrible songwriter. Passenger became first known when in 2012 he released the commercial radio success "Let her go" and if his quality back then was questionable I think it is safe to affirm that after 9 years have gone by his song writing competence has not improved much. The formula is the same: basic and dull folk-alike melodies mixed with cringy lyrics "‘Cos I’m fine and then I’m not / I’m spinning ‘round and I can't stop ... read more

Residing at the grey apex of all things bland and unsurprising, "Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted" is just fine - no more, and no less.

This is a decent outing from Passenger. The instrumentation is pleasant and there are some good melodies. However, like many Passenger albums, the songwriting below average. “London in the Spring,” the album’s final track, is a perfect example. He sprinkles in a political message of a society without monarchs or beggars, which fails horribly, because his songwriting is not good enough to tackle such a large topic.

The dude who made “Let Her Go” still makes music, and his current music is still mediocre and forgettable. Nothing to see here, folks...

Lazy songwriting and very generic folk type of music.

Passenger I never really cared of it's music.

I figured I give this album a chance and I was right.

I wasted my time

I mean, I'm a sucker for soft indie music, so I can't really rate this poorly and feel right. However, this album, as nice as it is, does fall into an issue that's common among many soft indie artists: every song sounds the same. There's not a lot of variation or playfulness in this album, but honestly it's not a bad piece. I would have hoped that after all of these years that Passenger would have pushed his work more to have a little more interesting ideas at play, as he's a very talented ... read more

As bland as you expected. The album is forgettable and probably fits best as a background music like many albums Passenger have released before.

Fav Track(s): The Way That I Loved You, London In The Spring
Least Fav Track(s): Sandstorm

Nothing original but I enjoyed it (I love this style of music so tbh I'd enjoy even "pretty bad" in this style ^^).

For over a decade, the English singer-songwriter Passenger re-wrote slight variations of the same ten songs over and over again; consistently sounding as if he was bound to merely a handful of musical ideas. Before 2009, Passenger was a band. They eventually dissolved leaving Rosenberg alone to keep musically pushing forward. He kept the band’s name and began releasing his solo material. After his 2013 track “Let Her Go” went on to become one of the most successful singles of ... read more

It's been a while since I've listened to a new Passenger song (thinking fondly back to 2012's "Let Her Go"), so my exposure to Mike Rosenberg's sound is still minimal at best. His folk pop sound seemed to win over many as the aforementioned single went on to become a huge commercial success. Here we are, almost nine years later, and he has released his twelfth studio album, Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted, a somberly titled affair. So, what do I think of it? Honestly, I liked a ... read more

Listen to Let Her Go once again, and youve heard the entire discography of this guy. I still kinda enjoy his songwriting tho, lol.
