    This album is mediocre at best. On one hand, it's nice to hear him do something different from his previous records, but on the other hand it has to flow well. This style does not work for RJ, and that is very evident on this record. I listened to it several times thinking it would grow on me, but I have not yet had any desire for repeated listening.

    First reaction: "Okay, this is different." Second reaction: "I should just give it a chance and judge it on its own merits." Third reaction: "This album sucks."

    RJD2 is great, but this album is a dreadful re-hash of Beatles-like B-Sides. He should stick to producing and let others do the singing (and playing)

    The one-man result: breezy soul tracks with pop structures, chill vocals and a grab bag of flourishes recalling everything from McCartney to Prince.
  2. Two skills he has mastered in the past, mood and texture, make this record especially good.
  3. Some sleepy stuff hurts his cause, but his best songs... combine vivid, polished tracks with solid tunes that pack a sneaky emotional weight.
