    Although the most audible change between Beauregard and Red Velvet is the newfound immediacy of the instrumentation and the explosive collaborative spirit, Singh's refreshingly strong vocal performance is equally as important.

    It took a lot of experimenting, jamming and digression from its old songwriting techniques for Pepper Rabbit to produce such an enjoyable album.

    The result is rich and exciting without becoming overwhelming; it's loaded with charm as well as fine tunes, and that combination makes it a delight that's well worth hearing.

    Thankfully, Red Velvet Snowball is more sweet than cloying-a complex album that takes multiple listens to fully unpack.

    No one song here will change your life, but there are some that could come close.

    The lyrics meander, often failing to offer so much as a hooky line or even a coherent narrative.

    In essence, Singh and Laurent merely make me wonder what Koenig and Mercer would have brought to the table on Red Velvet Snowball.
