Justin Bieber – Changes

Justin Bieber’s first release in almost five full years was, well, less than exciting, to say the least. I had high hopes for this record and even I must admit that after a full listen, I can say with certainty that I expected a lot better. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the record is a total disaster; because although many people will argue that it’s atrocious, I can’t help but think that it does indeed have some extremely redeemable qualities. For one, Justin’s vocals have improved tremendously. Whether it be because of practice or autotune, honestly, I don’t even care. He’s hitting notes and expanding vocally to places that we haven’t been to it years, and it’s nice to hear the effort. For another thing, where the record falters in terms of production, in excels terms of content. It feels like Justin is in a really good spot in his life and seems genuinely happy, and that truly matters a lot more than a well done album does. Besides, there are a few really great tracks on here that don’t deserve the bad reputation that the entire project is receiving.
