I understand that you didnt like the album and I can see how it is a letdown, it feels very weak compared to Justin's best albums. But I still enjoy it cus of songs like wave, breeze off the pond, higher, montana etc. And then there are shitty songs on there.
But i think you got it wrong how you think we sit and try to analyze the music we listen to, as if colorful chords is somehow related to having a snobbish musical taste. I get goosebumps and feel happy when i listen to some music and usually that music has "beautiful chords" in it. Its all feeling its not an analyzed TING.
AND by the way, some of the best neps beats to me like I Know and Im Beamin have delicious chords =)
but yeah this ablum sucked. the marketingnfor something can only work if what youre selling is good. other than the 9/10 WAVE i never listen to it. but take me out of it, no one liked this album. and by no one i mean the general public, my friend group and JT fans i know. it just wasnt a fire project
also playahater is so articulate that's a great quality to have.
Thing is I collected all this music over the years, made some different music folders depending on my mood. I can't just fully switch to a streaming service also because some of the music I own isn't on there I think. When I'm not on my computer, I'll always be playing music from my CD's. Thats also part why I never felt bad for downloading most of the stuff illegally first.
i used google play for that very reason. you can upload and stream your personal library and playlists are also migrated over as well as stream from stations based on your mood, or artist. and if you pay for it (im on a 3 month trail right now) you get to stream albums you dont have uploaded.
