Description: This album has a really interesting mix of genres. Many subgenera can be seen as used as experimental pieces in the song. Overall, it is a really complex album full of many different songs that fit drastically different situations. I think that this is both good and bad. While it offers diversity, I struggle to find something unifying in the album. They really needed a signature piece that could have tied it all together.
For example, "Somebody Loves You" is a song that is meant to be uplifting and bring someone warmth and feelings of love as indicated by the title and lyrics. It almost reminds me of a One Direction with how the lyrics and melody comes off. It is a very simple and repetitive song and is quite catchy. This song takes the number five position in the album. On the other hand, as song number twelve, "Elephants" has hip-hop elements in it. These are drastically different sounds. I would listen to the first in a long drive in the car at night and the other I have actually worked out to because of its edgy and bitting lyrics and beats. However, this does not to go as to say they are bad songs. Individually, I think they are both great, I just struggle to hear them both on the same album.
