Things get a little trippy.
The three standout tracks also happen to be the album’s slowest: “Plain Jane,” “Violet Vibrato,” and “Love Life” featuring his girlfriend Sevyn Streeter. My personal favorite is “Violet Vibrato” where he shows off his voice, sounding at times like Chris Martin and John Legend.
In an age where some artists are making it harder to listen to their music through exclusive
Tidal releases, B.O.B put the entire album on YouTube and Spotify to stream for free in addition to an iTunes release. As a fan, I appreciate his approach and fearlessness in trying a new sound. I’m excited to see where he goes next.
