    It's really sad when you wait for an album for so long, and when it comes, you only like one song. "Bounce" with Kelis is that song. The rest of the "album" I can throw in the garbage bin.

    18 Months seems more like a compilation album than an actual album. The singles are on par with Harris' previous works, but the rest are simply horrible produced, barely registering with the listener. It is without a doubt that the strongest songs on the album are the singles, all featuring guest vocals for one. This album is generic and derivative in nature, perhaps fitting for commercial18 Months seems more like a compilation album than an actual album.

This album is generic and derivative in nature, perhaps fitting for commercial success, but unlikely to be retained in the public 's memory for long. It is simply an album to dance to, with little artistic value. Compared with Harris' previous album, this album is overproduced and sacrifices creativity for mainstream success. Judging by the commercial sales of this album, it is unfortunate that this is the direction Harris will be heading in the future. Expand

    Yawn. That sums up this album in one word. This was something I regretted listening to and something that is on the borderline of whether it is proper music or not.

    While 18 Months, Harris’s third solo full-length, is pretty much the hit-making monster that launched him in to the world spotlight, the truth of the matter is that it feels like a rather compromised vision of who he is an artist, sacrificing his quirkiness for a brooding new persona that starts to get stale over the course of a complete full-length.

    this sounds like the soundtrack to the hell of cheese-ball Las Vegas bottle service clubs.

    In a half-hearted effort to dilute the homogeneity, Harris grouts 18 Months with flimsy instrumentals, as if to create the illusion of a proper album. He's not fooling anyone--maybe not even himself. [Dec 2012, p.108]
