Very Original, Almost all songs are great!

I'm surprised because I wasn't too happy with Jordin Sparks's album. Every song seemed a little bit boring to me, I like a few of them though.

Blake's album, however, is very original and has some catchy tunes. I love almost every song! Thanks Blake!

I recommend:
Break Anotha
Surrender
Gots to Get Her
Hate 2 Love Her
What'cha Got 2 Lose?
End of the World
Human

Amazing debut!

I gotta say I wasn't sure what to expect from this album but now that I've heard it...I'm really impressed! Blake takes the theme of an 80s pop mixtape and RUNS with it...Audio Day Dream is the first album I've heard in a long while that really does flow from beginning to end. Standouts to me are the first single "Break Anotha", "Gots To Get Her" which puts a really cool spin on Puttin On the Ritz, "End of the World" and "1000 Miles" which are upbeat electro-ballads (sort of like coldplay, but not really ;) and "She's Makin Me Lose It" which is a totally awesome Prince-esque jam.

Superfun quality pop, a really strong 80s vibe that's been updated to the 21st century, and plenty of energy. Lots of earcandy in the layers and little details in every single song. Great job by Blake, looking forward to lots of great music in the future from this kid! Pop *doesn't* have to be junk music after all!

wonderful

it's unfortunate that many people won't appreciate an album such as this. everyone is so used to the "top 40" songs playing right now, with their typical hooks, choruses, and beats. blake takes top 40 to a new level, incorporating everything we knew about him into one 17-track album. he has electronica, pop, hip-hop, jazz, 80's...EVERYTHING! blake's goal was to revolutionize radio music and he's doing it with this type of album. this truly is an audio day dream for all that are willing to open their ears.

my favorites are:
HOW MANY WORDS: very bittersweet and very blake.
HATE 2 LOVE HER: everyone has had this feeling before! very catchy and definitely second-single worthy.
WITHOUT YOU: reminds you of his "somewhere only we know" performance on idol. simply beautiful.
END OF THE WORLD: you just want to close your eyes and sing along to this song. i got butterflies just listening to this song.
1000 MILES: very pop and very catchy.
I GOT U: a good final song. gives you hope, and you just KNOW this isn't the end of bshorty!
