I feel that Calvin Harris sold his soul in between these years to the pop scene and lost his previous nü-disco feeling that differentiated him from another djs. I felt that when I first listened to this album: Bounce, Feel so Close, Drinking from the Bottle, We found love and I Need Your Love were clearly made for the pop industry. But not everything in the album is bad, it has great tracks like Iron (with Nicky Romero), an excellent electro tune that begins slowly and finish as a great twisted electro song. School, after all the pop shit stuff in the album, came this gem with the old school funky nu disco feeling that Calvin had when he starts with I Created Disco. Awooga, sick tune bro. And finally, Thinking about you, this track reminds me a lot of I’m not alone tune from his previous work, and even to Paul Van Dyk’s works earlier in his glorious days. This was an album that has good tunes for the electro-pop audience, and others that has a great soul, the soul that Harris has developed in these years. Without losing sight the evolution and maturity that he has developed as a producer, this is an Eclectic album with tracks going from Hip Hop with From Here 2 China to Twisted Electro with Awooga, this album makes me feel a little sad for the clear evidence that Calvin has left his Nu-Disco style, the style that his earlier fans loved, and has fallen to this mainstream Dj category headed by David Guetta.
