With the slightly disco-fied title track, he deftly examines the male/female dynamic as business deal. Throughout the song, is having a lot of fun with every salacious detail. 'Nearsighted' has him going the power pop route and all but wringing tears out of seeing 'slightly out of focus.' As goes along, what becomes striking is some of the tracks' subtle use of R&B flourishes. 'Him' depicts as the cuckold and has a beautiful string arrangement, a great hook, and strong, vivid lyrics. The album's best ballad, 'The People That You Never Get to Love' has again giving a warm and confident vocal and is poignant rather than weepy.
