Jun 12, 2019Of the production teams, Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir (aka Vargas & Lagola) deliver the best product, elevating "Peace of Mind," "Tough Love," and "Excuse Me Mr Sir" above the pack. A generic middle stretch is bookended by Tim's other highlights, which benefit from a group of high-profile guest stars, of which there are two clear standouts.
Jun 12, 2019On a purely sonic level, TIM is an easy listen to a fault, but taking in this final artistic statement is more difficult when focusing on the lyrics. ... The effect of these [guest] contributors effectively recasting his personal sentiments over once-unfinished music is haunting in all the wrong ways.

Don't worry,I like Avicii's music, he's probably my favorite EDM producer, however, this album feels like the weakest of his discography.
Don't worry, this won't be a biased opinion because I love Avicii, I'll actually admit that this album has flaws, for starters, there are 12 songs, very few passing the 3 or 4 minute mark, making it a very short album, despite a decent number of songs. Not only most of the songs are too short, but they are pretty bland and generic in terms of lyrics and music. Only a few songs I can consider "good" and memorable (Hold the Line, Never Leave Me and maybe Heart Upon My Sleeve) but far from the artist's best work, my favorite is "Heaven", such a great song, a 10/10 and an instant electronic classic, but the rest of the songs, while not bad, are really forgettable and mediocre.
I know this was completed after his death, I know that Avicii left the album unfinished, but the lyrics and most of the music work were pretty much already done by him before he passed away (adding the fact that many songs in this album were just re-worked previously unreleased songs) so I'm guessing that even if he was still alive, the result wouldn't have been much better honestly.
Frankly, Avicii lost his steam after the release of Stories. Taste the Feeling is just a generic pop song, while not bad, it's not great and just a glorified ad, the EP AVICI (01) suffered from the same problem as this album: Very short songs and while none of them were bad, they weren't great.… Expand
