Like most of the country, I discovered Calvin Harris through his breakout international single "Feel So Close". I was certain that Calvin Harris was the future of dance music. But during that time, I discovered that Calvin Harris was making good music long before that song and it's album came out. It was typical that the USA were late in his discovery. I decided to check out his first two albums "I Created Disco" and the amazing "Ready For The Weekend". Both albums were gems. Then his album "18 Months" was released. It was okay. It had the obvious hits, but were was Calvin Harris vocally except on one or two tracks? It had great production and guest vocals. But the guest vocals took the spotlight. So some time later in 2014, he releases his best single to date "Summer" and once again he shines with his vocals. I was excited for the album hoping that this time around Calvin would be singing more on his songs again. Then the song "Blame" featuring the phenomenal John Newman was released. Though I was disappointed to hear another guest vocal, I ended up loving the song. But still, I held onto hope that Calvin would feature more of his own singing on his new album instead of relying on others. Calvin Harris singing on his own produced songs was what set him apart from the likes of David Guetta and Avicii. It showed that he was a great producer and a good vocalist. But before the release of the album, it was revealed that this would be just like 18 Months with an overabundance of guests. I wasn't planning on buying the album at all. But I decided I needed some good new songs to add to my workout playlist and I assumed this would do. I impulsively bought the album and gave it a few listens. Here is my track by track review.

1. Faith: Great opener.

Earlier in his career, Calvin Harris handled most of the vocal duties on his first two albums as well as had a few nice instrumentals slipped in. "Motion" is his fourth release, and much like its predecessor "18 Months" is laden with high profile artists collaborating. Despite featuring artists like John Newman and Ellie Goulding, Harris plays it safe and doesn't deviate much from the sound of "18 Months" or push himself which is a shame really. Much of the album is same sounding.

There are still some standouts, the Trancey "Under Control" featuring Alesso and Hurts - the latter also appear on the stark synth ballad "Ecstacy" which provides a welcome change in pace, the club anthem "Summer" (featuring Harris' raspy vocals), the propulsive poppy "Pray To God" with HAIM, "Together" with Gwen Stefani (who takes over and makes the song her own), and the Dubstep-tinged "Dollar Signs" with Tinashe.

The album generally lacks the spontaneity of songs like "Acceptable In The 80's", "Merrymaking At My Place", "I'm Not Alone", or even "We Found Love" which he wrote for Rihanna. An instrumental like the electro funk "Slow Acid" sounds like it could be interesting but doesn't quite take off. It doesn't hold a candle to clever instrumentals like "Certified" or "5iliconeator". Seeing as "18 Months" was a huge hit in The UK with 9 top 10 singles, he probably knows something we don't. Fun in bits but nothing earth shaking.

I heard of Calvin Harris a few years ago through LMFAO's Reminds Me of You, so I blindly bought I Created Disco and Ready for the Weekend. I loved them, even though I don't see myself being particularly interested in electronic music. In his early albums, despite having repetitive songs, they were all somehow appealing.

With 18 Months, it was a bit disappointing to see him avoid the vocal duties so much, but there were still gems like Iron, Sweet Nothing, and Let's Go. 18 Months had a lot of bad songs too, though, like Green Valley and Here 2 China.

With Motion, it seems like there are less standout songs, and less bad songs, so the whole album is solidly mediocre. We do see Calvin on vocals more, which feels good, but it just seems like he had the choice to grow with this album, and just stayed the same instead. For example, Slow Acid serves the exact same purpose on Motion as Iron did on 18 Months. They both have very similar sounds, but Iron sounds much more complete as a song. It Was You and Overdrive sound dangerously close to dubstep for my tastes.

On the positive side, Blame is a wonderful song with great guest vocals, and Love Now features some strings that make it just work. To me, Outside is better than I Need Your Love. And of course, Motion comes with Summer.

Overall, it was disappointing to see Calvin Harris keep following the path of 18 Months instead of going back to his more creative roots, but after listening to Motion, I had to say to myself, "I don't know what else I was expecting." If you liked 18 Months, I would recommend Motion. If not, don't bother. Personally, I probably won't be joining Calvin in his next endeavor, but perhaps there is hope.

I have just gotten into Calvin Harris last year listening to "I Created Disco", "Ready for the Weekend", and "18 Months". And I fell in love with all of these albums. I first heard of him back on MySpace, but I never took the time to listen to his music. But after "Feel So Close", I decided to take a stab at it. I also fell in love with his "Acceptable in the 80s" song which I heard from the Just Dance Game (first one) for Wii.

But now listening to Motion, it is a major disappointment. He can do so much better. He's mostly producing and featuring artists now, which isn't bad, but I loved him just singing in his songs in general. This album is so mediocre. I don't know how I feel about him anymore. The only reason I gave him a 3 because some of these songs do have a great beat behind the bad lyrics. My Favs:

1. Summer (sounds similar to one of his other songs) (mediocre)
2. Under Control (mediocre, but there's one part in this song that I absolutely love)
3. Blame (it's ok)
4. Together (lyrics are bleh, but I love the beat in the background)
5. Pray to God (Def my favorite track on this album and on top of that, I love HAIM)

Overall, a very mediocre album. Pray to God is honestly the only song that stands out to me.
