    Best to part it out and party, because if there's a blueprint for the vocal EDM album, A Town Called Paradise follows it too closely, spinning through all the usual breaks and drops without pausing to consider the full picture.

    This album is a purposeful move into Top 40 that misses the quirk of well written pop and the sonic inventions of EDM.

    He's a consummate crowd-pleaser, but he's best when he gets weird.

    This feels like music for people who honestly and unironically look up to people like Paris Hilton or the Kardashians.

    It's not that bad. The impressive aspects include the fact that he has made it clear that this is a dance-pop album and that this isn't DavidIt's not that bad. The impressive aspects include the fact that he has made it clear that this is a dance-pop album and that this isn't David Guetta quality in the aspects that he hasn't ripped off his own remixes of his rubbish songs and the singers on the album are still comfortable and not awkwardly unbearable. Stop trying to make him look like David Guetta because he ain't anywhere near. Expand
