The Gym Class Heroes have always been a group that has blurred the lines between hip-hop and rock, which hip-hop purists often had a problem with. They never garnered the fame they probably deserved. But when you take arguably the best thing out of The Gym Class Heroes (Travis McCoy), you get "Lazarus." This album is infused by "feel good" hip-hop and rock that feels almost impossible NOT to enjoy. The beats aren't backed by a band, like Gym Class, but are backed by studio beats that seem more clean and full. The album is not a classic, but is a great album that should help Travis (or Travie as he calls himself), into MTV and radio stardom.

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.

Travie McCoy has gone solo and with a great outcome. Lazarus is the type of album that makes you feel good. It is a great album for the summer. Travie shines through on most of the tracks. Travie shows his ability to rap as well as sing. He shows his love for many genres meshing his influences together and coming out with a unique sound. With songs like 'Billionaire' and 'We'll Be Alright' the summer gets started off strong. Do not listen to the many haters who are knocking this album. It is a great artistic expression. At first i questioned why did he go solo? But as i listened to the album it became clear this album is not the same as The Gym Class Heroes. Travie had something to say so he released a solo album to say it. Still can not wait for the next GCH album but this will tide me over. Go pick this album up if you like Outkast, Gnarls Barkley or GCH

I'm not going to break down every track for you and analyze the ish out of the selection of chords, bass, etc. All you need to know is that overall, this is an amazing album. Each track has something new he brings, lyrically and musically, and the collaboration with all the wonderful artists he worked with really shows how much he is respected by the music industry. I can easily see myself playing this album while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway, top down, with the gorgeous California sunshine lighting up my day. This album is worth downloading, buying, whatever you got to do to get it, get it :)

This cd as the main song states is just what the doctor ordered. The melodies and lyrics are so catchy as to be simplistic; yet have an underlying angst so as to relate reality of love and life to everyone regardless of age. It is aimed at a very young audience but even the anthem/song We Are Alright is a detonation of feelings for anyone who partied late into the night and lived to talk about. Every time I hear the song it makes me think of an English drama set at the birth of rock and roll instead of the era of death of rap.

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.
