  1. On the strength of his recent chart performances, Harris is currently riding a crest of a wave, so he's clearly doing something right. But it feels like he's sacrificed some of his creativity in favour of simplistic and unimaginative output.
  2. When Ready for the Weekend is over, it vanishes, leaving no discernable trace: like the music that inspired it, it's as if it never happened.
  3. Under The Radar

    Ultimately, this is one party you might want to sit out. [Fall 2009, p.74]

    Easily Calvin's best album. Every track sounds very unique. It also has a sweet retro vibe using a lot of old game sound effects in songs.Easily Calvin's best album.
