Getting Out Our Dreams

Take the biggest investments of love and dating emotions and the biggest build up of hate and distrust and put that to futuristic beats with good lyrics. Imagine sitting down with your ex and trying to talk about the good and bad times and trying to reconcile. Now imagine sitting down with your current significant other and trying to talk through the mess from your past relationships. This CD, explores all of those emotions. Big Sean and Jhené Aiko reflect on the multiple feelings that are experienced during a relationship.

Talk about an album with a story and soul. Changes has songs and lyrics that are of common topic but Charles Bradley adds powerful vocals with a vintage touch on the music that makes for a foot tapping album. Instruments include your typical piano, guitar, precussion, but in many songs you can hear the trumpet, saxaphone, and flute. A popular person I would compare this to is Al Green but just a little more fast paced with rougher vocals. I enjoyed the album and wouldnt mind listening to it on the occasion or having a few songs on in the background during a dinner party.

The One & Only, Jackson Sturkey is an awesome album. Jackson Sturkey has a certain Jon Bellion vibe with his blend of hip hop, fusion, and jazz. There isn’t a song on this album that I did not like at first listen. The two recommended songs 2 Dope, Cash, Love and 5 Gone Tomorrow are the only tracks that you can play, but if you can download this album and give it a listen it will be really worth it. Jackson Sturkey's music sounds a lot like Twenty One Pilots, with hip hop base with a a pop influence.

Honestly, I'm surprised nobody picked this up to review earlier. It's was a really fun album to listen to! For me, I only knew CeeLo from "Fuck/Forget You" and "Crazy" so I was expecting some catchy, upbeat songs with a contradicting depressing message. While I wasn't wrong, the album's a lot more diverse than that. "Est. 1980s" is a fast-paced, alternative ode to 80s pop-culture. "Sign of The Times" is a mellow and instrospective look at individuality. "Music To My Soul" is an anthemic track about following your dreams.

My favorite thing about this album is that it sounds like a better version of the music that would play at the high school dance Marty McFly's parents attended, and I mean that unsarcastically. The James Hunter Six vary an old style by giving us upbeat and inventive horn licks in a style that rivals Ray Charles.

“Get Home” sounds like it’d be a banger with DJ Mustard on the beat and features from Kid Ink and Migos, but the song didn’t do too much for me. The song is a lot more R&B than Mustard’s usual club rap. The chorus is pretty catchy and Kid Ink’s feature is alright, but in general this song, to me, falls into the generic pop-rap category.
