Top Customer Reviews
1. Dr. Feel Good f/Cee-Lo Green - 4/5 - This first track on the album has "feel good" in the title and that is exactly what it does for the listener. It is an upbeat track which sets the mood for the album and gives the listener an idea as to where Travis is going to take his debut solo album. His witty wordplay is set forth, along with a decent beat to back it. A great track.
2. Superbad - 3/5 - This track has a lot rock influence, but the vibe of the track is very deep and makes the listener surrender to the feel of the track. Travis mostly "sings" the lyrics along with the heavy rock beat. It's an interesting placement for the song, however, coming after "Dr. Feel Good," because this track seems to have more of a saddened feel or "lost" feeling. A good one though
3. Billionaire f/Bruno Mars - 5/5 - Who can't relate to this song? Radio might have overplayed this track by the time the album drops, but it does not force it to be stale. Bruno Mars is one of those features that will become the norm within the next year. He's already got himself onto another radio smash (B.O.B.Read more ›
This cd is perfect for transition eras such as the current era. Pop is making a mature return to its 1950s roots without the naivete that was it was its undoing when rock and roll came unto the scene. Travie McCoy has the combined knowledge to blend all of the big three dominating music into small little gifts. The cd is concise without too much adornment. Ten songs! Perfect number instead of numbing 17 songs that are thrown in as filler.
All of the songs are daily mantras designed to be cried out in traffic, at work, during sex and wallowing in depression. The lyrics while play on the mundane habits of humans on planet earth, also search for more out of the catharsis called happiness. Billionaire uses stupidity and sloth as metaphors for why we are not rich. It is quite relieving when the day is done and bill collectors are calling or while internet shopping.
After playing and re-playing all of the hits, the song that emerges is the non-hit After Midnight followed by the Manual. Both talk about mortality enhanced by obsessive love. The lyrics reformulate naivete into grown folks fallacies and assumptions.
The cd tries too hard to cover too much ground. Those entrenched in the specifics of music genre may find fault and over analyze the simplicity of joy.

Okay album. It clearly has high expectations given GCH backgrounds and their unique sound, and as big of a hip-hop and Travie fan as I am, it was a so-so album for me. Read morePublished on December 10, 2013 by Philip
