Editorial Reviews

Known far and wide as the frontman of alternative hip-hop superstars Gym Class Heroes, McCoy's solo debut sees him teaming up with a diverse array of studio superstars for a genre-busting, groundbreaking new collection.
Among the contributing producers, writers, and artists are T-Pain, Bruno Mars and the Smeezingtons (B.o.B, Cobra Starship, Flo Rida), Detail (Akon, Lady Gaga), The Stereotypes (Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige), Evan 'Kidd' Bogart (Adam Lambert, Beyonce), and Josh Abraham (Velvet Revolver, 30 Seconds To Mars) & Oligee (Flo Rida, Leighton Meester).
'LAZARUS' is heralded by the first single, 'Billionaire' (featuring Bruno Mars), which debuted at MTV.com in March. The companion video, directed by Mark Staubach, premieres in May. 'Billionaire (featuring Bruno Mars)' is already taking off at Top 40 and Rhythmic radio, in rotation at stations including Z100 in New York and KIIS in LA.
McCoy is currently poised for his first-ever solo tour, joining Photo Finish recording duo 3OH!3 and Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen labelmates Cobra Starship on the hugely anticipated 'Too Fast For Love' tour, presented by MTV. The trek will
take off late April and then travel North America through mid-June.
A select number of the 'Too Fast For Love' dates will be part of the second annual 'mtvU Movies & Music Festival,' a
groundbreaking new tour which features the hottest performers and most buzzed-about movies leading up to June's 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Furthermore, McCoy - along with 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship - will be among the star-studded lineup
featured at the upcoming Bamboozle Chicago, slated to rock the Windy City on Saturday, May 15th.

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.

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.

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

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. A few songs that were clearly aiming for the radio but not quite there, and a few that were only worth listening to once or twice. Out of the album, I still listen to only 1-3 of the songs on my ipod, so it was a bit of a miss for me.

I have been looking for this cd forever. Nobody seemed to carry it in store, I got so frustrated. But I found and couldn't be happier. I really like the Need You song. It's so expressive and heart wrenching especially if you've seen the video for that song.
