B.O.B. seems to have a fan base that over the years have split into two categories of appreciation. There are those who had known of B.O.B. from classic mixtapes like B.O.B. VS. Bobby Ray or Who the F**** is B.O.B, who appreciated the different style that the Atlanta MC had created to differentiate himself from a plethora of new generation MCs (Charles Hamilton, Drake, Asher Roth, J. Cole). And then there are those who had discovered B.O.B. after his massive hits, like "Airplanes" or "Nothing On You" from his official debut album The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Those who had discovered him after his debut album appreciated his catchy melodies and choruses that were radio friendly. The mixtape lovers criticized those same songs for "selling out" or crossing over form the mixtape arena to the spotlight of a new generation of MTV viewers. Either way, he is an artists who deserves respect for being a hip-hop artist that is so involved in his music creatively. He not only uses his voice, raps, but he plays instruments too.

Whether or not B.O.B. likes it or not, there is a lot of pressure with this sophomore album to satisfy both the mixtape fans and his newly acquired radio fans...
Track by Track

1.) "Bombs Away" - 3/5. This is a good intro song accompanied by the celebrated American actor Morgan Freeman's (Shawshank Redemption, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves) distinctive voice that builds up the anticipation for the album that follows. The actual song though, seems just over average. B.O.B. does possess energy, but for having an actor like Freeman "featured" I was expecting something with more impact.

2.) "Ray Bands" - 3.5/5 - I sure hope he was rewarded by the brand for creating a song that proclaims Raybans as much as it does.

I really like B.O.B. If you liked his 2010 album, you will like this one as well. There seems to be specific songs on Strange Clouds that sound similar to specific tracks from The Adventures of Bobby Ray.

He uses a lot of instruments in his albums as opposed to the same old 808 kick and bass hip hop artists out there.

There are lots of pianos, guitars, and violins to tickle your ears.

He also has a great voice that stands out with the need to constantly use the Autotune effect throughout his whole album which he barely even seems to use in this album. Ans the spots where he does use it, it is very pleasing and not overbearing.

My favorite tracks are Bombs Away (and not just because Morgan Freeman is in it, ha!), So Hard to Breathe, Arena, and STRANGE CLOUDS! I love listening to Strange Clouds when I am lifting weights. It's a hype track.

I got this album during Amazon's MP3 deal of the day for 1 buck! Cant beat that! Not to mention I bought a pair of Philips ActionFit SHQ4000/28 Neckband Headphones (which I might add are the most comfortable headphones EVER!) during an Amazon lighting deal for 9 bucks with the inclusion of a promotion $2 towards an MP3 purchase on Amazon, so I actually paid nothing for this album! (AMAZON ROCKS!)

But after listening to this album I would have paid more.

If I had to throw a little criticism in there, I would say that his lyrics seems to be about the same topic mostly. How he was at the bottom, but he is on top now. I think we figured that out when you said it on your first album BOB.

I recommend this album! =D

Like Nicki Minaj, B.o.B is a rapper that is acclaimed for his skills on mixtapes. But, also one that gained mainstream pop fame with his "debut" album ("The Adventures of Bobby Ray"). It wasn't an easy task for them to satisfy both mixtape and pop fans on their next album. Nicki dedicated half of her sophomore album to hip-hop and the other half to pop. B.o.B's sophomore album, "Strange Clouds", mixes both genres together on most songs, and sometimes adds elements of other styles, including rock, dubstep, and even country. Its production is very pop, yet B.o.B raps in every song. B.o.B is not a typical pop artist or a typical rapper. The beats found on B.o.B's songs are never generic, there's always creativity there. And atypical of most rappers, B.o.B incorporates guitar and drums into his music. B.o.B could be considered an alternative-pop-rapper.

"Strange Clouds" is an excellent album. There is not one weak song on it. The songs include ones of various moods, from party to reflective to lovey-dovey. My favorite songs on the album are "So Hard To Breathe", "Both Of Us", "So Good", "Arena", "Out Of My Mind", and "Never Let You Go". "So Hard To Breathe" is an acoustic song where he reflects back on his past poor life. "Both of Us" is love song featuring Taylor Swift and switches back and forth from acoustic pop to hip-hop. "So Good" is light-hearted pop-rap song about globe-trotting with a lady friend. "Arena" (ft. Chris Brown and T.I.) is a mid-tempo R&B-flavored song celebrating current fame (sold-out arenas!). "Out of My Mind" features Nicki Minaj and is the most hyperactive and fastest song of the album. Of course it is - it features Nicki Minaj! "Never Let You Go" mixes country and hip-hop, and has more country in it than the Swift collaboration.
