Honestly I think Mirrors is my least favourite at this point. Definitely a few tracks that could be five minutes instead of 7-8 though.

At least he's not yelling idiotic shit like "Shamon!" and "Ho!" and "Hee-hee".

So there's that.

I'd say his solo debut was his MJ joint. FutureSex was his Prince album. This is him doing, I dunno, Al Green? Marvin Gaye? Frank Ocean??

Man, Suit and Tie through Spaceship is one of the strongest sections of any record not released by Tame Impala in the past couple years. Loving this record.

Same.



I haven't listened to the new record yet because I was unimpressed with the single. I've got it lined up, though, and I'll give it a go because I really dig FutureSex/LoveSounds.

Like I said, check out Marvin's Here, My Dear. Really pushing the envelope of R&B; a double album with seven tracks around the 6:00 minute mark.


MARVIN GAYE. "A Funky Space Reincarnation". 1978. album version "Here, My Dear". - YouTube

Wide awake in my hotel room and wishing I could listen to 20/20 right now.

Was this posted yet?

My second favorite of his, behind What's Going On. It's challenging but rewards your attention. I managed to find it on vinyl last Record Store Day.

That's a sweet pick up. The album art is amazing/hilarious. You have to admire a guy taking the piss out of his own painful divorce proceedings.

This is a (very) early contender for AOTY for me.

I pretty much adore the album, but I can't stand "Don't Hold the Wall." It may be a placement thing. It's the only thing, dare I say, keeping me from giving 20/20 a 10/10.

Was just coming in here to say how Don't Hold the Wall is my favourite song so far. Different strokes.

I'm still not convinced about this album like you guys are. I like it quite a bit, with reservations.

Think of the people JT has been compared to lately. Kanye, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Frank Ocean...aren't these extremely self-reflective people with something to say about themselves and society? 20/20 is a great, warm record to sit down with, but I'm never going to learn anything from it. The lyrics are just kind of there. I dunno, maybe I'm the only one who cares, it's probably just the comparisons bugging me. But I doubt I'll still be listening to this when I'm supposed to pick an AOTY if there's nothing about it that really stirs me. His influences usually did that.

Easily my favorite part of this album is Timbaland. JT's got a great voice, but Timbaland supplies most of this album's appeal through its awesome grooves.
