We gave it a B+

He’s on Fred Durst’s new imprint, but don’t hold it against him. Cocreated with pal Chad Hugo (half of production Ph.D.’s the Neptunes), this debut takes an obsession with ’80s synth-pop, adds neck-snapping beats, and applies a modern singer-songwriter market sense. You’ll hear flickers of the Cars, Duran Duran, Gary Numan, and Thom Yorke. But mostly you’ll hear a savvy, idiosyncratic artist who could help redeem pop radio. Root for him.
