    I dig Daniel. Him and Thicke are the future of solo pop artists.

    He’s an egotistical maniac that needs to be stopped. If you read some of his interviews he goes on about how people think he’s a god and he’s putting the best music out there at the moment. My friend bought his album on the strength of GGTT and it was absolute crap. He’s becoming a laughing stock in the UK now, so he runs to America. For once, I’m gonna give you some friendly advice. Do NOT buy his album. You WILL be disappointed.

  3. elgato says:

    Still, that song “Gotta Get Through This” is tight. It’s different from what everyone else is doin’ and that’s always a good thing. I’d rather someone be arrogant and different than humble and a copycat.

  4. saturn says:

    True. GGTT is a tight song, which is why my friend bought the album. But he’ll probably be a one-hit wonder. Like you said, his arrogance could be justified if he had more songs like GGTT, but he doesn’t. The only other half-way decent song is James Dean(I wanna know). Everything else was disappointingly rubbish.
