On Francis Starlite’s third album, his music turns spare and stark as he comes closer to his finding his essence as a songwriter.

Though nothing actively offends, or annoys on Just for You, it’s difficult to resolve one of pop music’s snappiest writer’s instincts with something that seems so inexact in its lyrical matter and so cool in its lacking immediacy and subtleness.

I have never witness someone perform with so little self awareness. Seriously, I thought it was a comedian fucking around. Everything is auto tuned crap. He must have a daddy or boyfriend in the biz because I cannot see how this no talent schmuck was discover by anyone unless the person had alzheimers

More subtle and understated than last year's 'Farewell, Starlite!', this short but beautiful album feels more like Francis playing backstage to his close friends before going out and playing an energized set.
The songs here are often muted and their beauty comes from small moments and production flourishes.

Boring... stale... another disappointing release from what appeared to be a promising group on Chance the Rapper's Summer Friends and their big single "Friends."

It's not a bad album. It's just not all that good either. It seems designed to be background music. Every song is understated and there is nothing that stands out.

It would be a decent ambient album if they cut the vocal track. But it feels almost like it is determined to be background music for people who need noise but don't want to concentrate.
