We could hide away in daylight We go undercover, wait out the sun Got a secret side in plain sight Where the streets are empty, that's where we... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Where his debut was concerned with building on his formative years, this incubated follow-up hatches a newly minted worldview from the embattled singer.

    Sutherland’s taken dancehall to the American mainstream, but, with Forever, he also transports us to a better world--where positivity reigns.

    His second LP plays to his familiar strength--that lightly Auto-Tuned voice--and a batch of R&B-friendly tunes with minimal instrumentation, the echoing paranoia of Watch Who You Tell and Call Me's sunny clatter being particular highlights. [Aug 2018, p.114]

    Forever requires sieving through plates of glinting sediment before discovering treasure. The album is best when luxuriating in its own divine intensity, when an earnest Popcaan reconciles the hunger of his past with the feasting of his present, hands clasped in grace.
  5. 60
    Although some of the songs follow that same pop structure seen on the first half, by contrasting them with more experimental sounds (that are not hoping to top the charts), they have much more impact.

    Sadly, his second album is blander than supermarket jerk chicken, and its wistful, ruminative opener, Watch Who You Tell, promises depths that never surface.
