This album was a lot to take in upon my initial listening sessions, but there was enough there that stuck in the back of my mind and spurred many revisits. A lot of people will be tempted to write this album off as "not serious" or a "joke album", but that's a lazy mischaracterization. It certainly plays with pop tropes but does so in a brilliant and bizarre fashion. There's also a ton of heart here. My standout track is the best example of this. "Tellin' Me This" is a masterful play at 80s balladry with some crisp production and absolutely stunning vocals. Other favorites include the title track and "Living Each Day". Stick with this album. You may find it isn't for you, and that's fine, but don't be so quick to write it off if it doesn't stick right away.
