Come on, you don't like his voice? I think hes got a great voice, hits them high notes and shit.

What I thinks great about both tapes is how he throws together different elements, like theres a new wave influence, Drake influence, hip hop influence, classic R&B like Ginuwine & Jodeci and indie rock. But they don't sound forced together, he carved out his own sound and hes a hell of a songwriter. I also get a sense that he wants the listener to listen to it over and agian because theres so much detail in the compositions and vocal and words.

I kind of agree with buck, but off my first few listens I'd probably say its not as good as '...Balloons'. I mean I'm still listening to that and my favorite song keeps changing, 'Coming Down' is becoming imprinted on my mind, not only cos I relate to it but the vocals are perfect emotion for the lyrics. But again, so many great albums that I had to hear a lot before knowing their true greatness: Sensual World, Non Fiction, Black On Both Sides, Operation Doomsday, Alicia Keys etc. I'm sure theres others, on the other hand my opinion could remain the same, that its a great album but not a classic like 'Balloons'.
