i mean, different tastes of course, but i'm pretty sure my criticisms are completely valid.
a lot of the stuff i liked on the first album aren't there on this one. i find it hard to argue this one has a different overall sound, it's just whether you like it or not. and i just didn't happen to like it.
some of them have some validity, others not really. it sounds nothing like r&b beats? that one in particular is really bizzare, not at all sure why you think that. there's plenty of fun songs on there, california girls, peacock, last friday night. I mean yea they're not all like that but w/e. not sure how many of the songs repeat 5 words for 2/3 of the song though. can't say i've noticed that.
i mean i think this album stacks up pretty well against both what she's done and what most other people have done. really great effort overall.
e.t.'s still the best song on the album btw although 'who am i living for' is growing on me a fair bit.
