    This music is rather competently made, but 90% of the music is uninspired. This music was 100% made for the lowest common denominator listener, especially drunk college students. Considering the amount of talented singers on this album, they add almost nothing to the tracks which are inherently stiff and uninteresting music, with the levels to everything turned all the way up.

Considering the amount of talented singers on this album, they add almost nothing to the tracks which are inherently stiff and uninteresting music, with the levels to everything turned all the way up. The songs on this album have no appeal other than being really loud and regular, so that if you are trying to dance when drunk, you are likely to be able to dance on beat. This music is basically background music turned up really loud. Expand

    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.

    You know I was a little disappointed because some of the songs were just lacking personality. I loved Calvin's beats and I think Calvin is one of the best in his business. But lets be honest here this album was a disappointment. The stand outs sweet nothing and I need your love. But the rest are not special. Sorry Calvin

    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]
