While the record is a confident, well-realized pop album, it does suffer a bit from the modern malaise I’ve been seeing in records this year – an overall sense of sameness. There is a lot of similarity in the overall feel of each track on Synesthetica. From a fan standpoint, this might not be an actual issue, but it kind of reduced my desire to spend a lot of time invested in the album over time. I will pick out some favorite tracks, of course, but this album as a whole won’t be broken out as much.
