better... much better. However, despite the improvements on nearly every level, It still is the equivalent to musical wallpaper. I listened to this, and was left thinking... What does Jodi have that makes him standout from his contemporaries? To be honest, not much. He has a long way to go before creating a great project.
Edit: Revisiting this project, I underestimated just how high some of the highs are. Slow Dancing In The Dark, and No Fun are amazing and show so much potential for young Joji
