I've given this a few spins and it's an enjoyable listen. Nothing touches the best few from 'Starboy' though. I can't see myself playing anything from this as much as I did the title track from the aforementioned album. The main issue I have with this album isn't exclusive to this release; I don't find Abel's vocals close to the best of them. At times I find him one-paced, whiny and a lil' annoying. Some of the lyrics too - "Stack a couple M's like I was Shady" - if the man he is referring to wrote some of these corny lines the hate would be vitriolic. The first song is boring, and 'Escape From LA' gets tedious, but aside from that, it's a consistent run of synthpop tracks. The bonus tracks and remixes are well worth checking out too. His most consistent album. 3.5-4 Best Tracks: Hardest to Love, Blinding Lights, In Your Eyes, Save Your Tears, Nothing Compares, Blinding Lights (Chromatics Remix)
