A pop album that won't make you cringe

Good, clean, fun - amazing!

You'll never say bad things about pop again

16 blissful tracks that redefine the very essence of pop in 2019

Fans, both old and young have all had their reservations about pop music at some point or the other right from the genre's early days, but even more so over the past few years which have seen the genre pervaded with hip hop antics that have considerably reduced its potential for mass appeal, which is what the genre is generally all about. Sure, we are all tired of the same old lyrics and remakes of the same old songs, and even copies but this album makes no attempt whatsoever to take things back to how it was in the old days, rather, it defines its own path and careers down it like a runaway train with breaks that mysteriously work in just the right places. To cut a long story short, it's not an album that aims to correct everything that's going wrong with pop today, stand out, be different or prove a point. It's not an album that aims to do things to your ears that have never been done before. No, it won't tell you it's the best you ever had or ever will have. And last but not least, it won't tell you how much money it's got in the bank and why you're a looser if you don't wear Versace everywhere you go, have 365 tattoos on your forehead alone, keep a pistol tucked in your socks or smoke weed everyday. This is a good album that is just that - and that's what makes it so spectacular. No gimmicks, no emulation or duplication of what has been, no pompous or over-showy sounds and nothing that will make you have to lower the volume so your neighbours don't start questioning your integrity or overall demeanour. It's good, clean and exciting all the way through - one of those albums you'll listen to over and over again without knowing, and never get tired of it.

It's quite rare to come across an album this big, a pop album for that matter in 2019, and that makes it even more spectacular. Its size doesn't in any way water down the quality of the record in any way. It's deeply refreshing and satisfying all the way through. Every other song takes your breath away quicker than the last one brought a new breath of fresh air. It's masterfully written and performed from start to finish with Trevor's signature guitar techniques shinning through all the way.

The self-titled album features the critically acclaimed 2018 singles, "The Airport", "All Over Again" and "Michigan" which all paved the way nicely for the Michigan, US fast-rising pop music sensation's first full length album since he made his debut back in 2014 and with the response it has received so far it is setting the tone for an even more promising career that was previously predicted.
