    His heavy use of synthesizers might pin him to an era, but his tenor is timeless.

    Young Hunger proves that Valley can shine even on the most crowded of dance floors.

    Young Hunger is a solidly crafted album that manages to give hints at what Chad Valley does best while musically supporting a bunch of his buddies.
  4. Overall, Young Hunger is the sound of an artist spreading himself too thin.

    Like Within and Without, it's no overhaul, but Young Hunger has a much more immediate presence, more direct in both a melodic and emotional sense and generally with a lot more 'oomph'.

    The production is highly polished and everything appears to be utterly disposable.

    Surrounding himself with talent that far surpasses his own doesn't hide the weakness of many of these tracks.
