Feb 14, 2020On “Changes,” he finally stakes his claim, honing a vocal approach that’s soothing, tender although maybe slightly tentative, a middle ground between comfort and reluctance. It is an effective album, and also a deliberately unflashy one — Bieber is consistent and confident, and also not drawing too much attention to himself.
Feb 18, 2020Those that have heard lead single Yummy will essentially be able to form their view on Changes without listening to it: if they find it icky and monotonous then that will be how they perceive the whole album, whereas those that think it’s catchy and well-produced are well and truly in luck.
Feb 18, 2020Artists can certainly grow up and mature without losing their edge or creative spark. Changes, however, is ultimately a transitional record that finds Bieber navigating how to reconcile adulthood with pop stardom—and discovering that, at least in his case, this merger is a tricky one.

Feb 16, 2020Justin Bieber has unquestionably been one of the biggest pop stars of this generation. Ruling the 2010s, the Canadian singer has come back toJustin Bieber has unquestionably been one of the biggest pop stars of this generation. Ruling the 2010s, the Canadian singer has come back to the musical scene after a long hiatus which he took advantage of to marry his fellow wife Hailey. After telling the world Bieber suffers of Lyme disease, had hard-to-deal with drug addictions and promised to change his terrible teenage behaviour, we all expected a touching album filled with emotional songs that perhaps would say sorry to some people for his past mistakes, expose the exploitation he suffered stepping into the music scene being so young etc. The wise always say: don't expect anything good thus you'll be able to omit deceptions. Well, apply this lesson to this album.
"Changes" is a 50-minute long love letter to his wife. Almost too long for her. There's no other message in the album besides this one. The songs in it sound all the same from track 1 to track 17. Bieber has always relied on amazing an production in order to hide the lack of artistry he has. Don't get me wrong, I do not hate this artist, I just focus on the product he intends to sell us. Thus, Bieber has decided to come back to the game with a non-catchy album that feels like doesn't have bridges nor choruses.
In conclusion, this album has been a terrible move for his carrier. It feels like Bieber hasn't even tried to make a good hip-hop/pop album like he used to do. So many things to be inspired by and he's only focusing on the most common and writing this cringy too extensive love letter?
"Changes" is definitely a retrogression in his career coming from such an amazing project that "Purpose" (2015) was.… Expand
