    It's not just that this guy is the douche satchel of the year. He has genuine talent. But he wouldn't have made it to the top of the charts were it not for Pharrel's label rescuing him and grooming him to chart success. Of course a couple of pairs of breasts and a gyrating Cyrus helped people to keep talking about him. He is a walking, singing pastiche of all that is offensive, mindless and common. To the point where his existing talent is obscured by it all. Of course he's no different from the average rapper in terms of song content or abuse of women in videos. But it's more noticeable with him because beneath the abhorrent surface of this album lies true soul. It's a shame. Full Review »

    A lot of these songs sound dated, but not in a fresh way. "Feel Good" sounds like Calvin Harris/Sam Sparro circa 2008. "Give It 2 U" sounds straight out of 2003. Other tracks sound like they could be fillers on his previous albums. As massive as Blurred Lines the single was, this album is not a game changer for him. Full Review »

    The album is ok, but it can be somewhat boring at times and the lyrics could use some help. Robin Thicke's vocals are good, but he certainly pours it on a little thick at times, which isn't really a good thing. Overall, it's not a bad album, but it's not one I would ever listen to again.
