My first concept album of 2022, Sinatra gives an easy but thought-provoking narrative filled with his signature delivery and many emotionally evocative moments. Simplistic and even heart-warming, Sinatra relates a rather melancholy love story that's vague enough to incite intrigue but also presents very matter-of-fact lyricism that's not drenched in metaphor or ambiguity.

To echo a sentiment I made in a separate review: sometimes things need more than one look, more than one chance to be fully understood and therefore fully appreciated, especially things that aren't straight-forward and are instead ambitious and uncomfortable at first. It's so easy to fall into this comfortable trap of evaluating/judging things so quickly when we find ourselves in these situations. My initial listening experience for this album exemplifies what I'm talking about exactly.
