Good for a Second
This is a good album, but I think 18 Months is still his #1.
I've heard all 4 of Calvin Harris's albums, and I think out of all of them this was his strongest. I like how he incorporated a variety of different styles on this, some 80s new wave, some 70s style disco (which ironically wasn't present on his first album, I Created Disco), and some rock tracks as well. For the most part it doesn't leave much of an impression on me, but he really nailed the final track, "5iliconeator", which manages to be both amazingly epic and kinda relaxing as well. I also like the soulful "Burns Night", and "Dance Wiv Me" for incorporating both nice-sounding piano/disco sounds and pumping 80s synths. That being said, Calvin Harris really doesn't bring anything new to the dance scene, and honestly it's entirely skippable, but at least unlike his more recent work, this is actually a pretty enjoyable album overall.
Seriously though, stay away from his newer stuff. It can't hold a candle to this stuff, and this wasn't even particularly great to begin with.
Calvin Harris is my favorite artist & I am one of those teens that just wants to go to dance party, then dance to the awesome music of Calvin Harris.
The best album
By Create Nickname? Why?
This is the album you need if you liked feel so close. I'm not alone is still his best song after 18 months was released. This is great.

Calming vs. Funky
5iliconeator and Burns Night made me feel soothing and relaxing, but Ready for the Weekend, You Used to Hold Me, Relax, Stars Come Out, The Rain, Flashback, and I'm Not Alone makes me want to dance! Great work, Calvin!
Great Album, must buy!
I definitely love this album! It's a must buy if you like EDM
Dont take this the wrong way, but i love calvin harris, but his album covers never make sense
Best Music Ever
By kenneth ramirez
Unbelievably good. I dont know how so little people know about his music. More people have to hear his music and find out what they've been missing for so long.
Dance beats are amazing!

Everyone's trying to work with him now, and even Chris Brown's producer copied Yeah 3X from Harris' work...
