I think Porter is a *truly* talented artist, one who creates art as an artist, not as a mass producer of something to be consumed for profit. But I am so far having mixed feelings on just how much I like the new stuff he put out.
I think all the songs are great… they’re refreshing, but they’re just not my style. Not his problem, but I definitely miss the way he redefined and reworked dubstep, progressive house, and trance elements into one song like he used to. I guess indie pop funk just isn’t my thing, but I have 100% respect for his works on the Worlds album. Still looking forward to his show and think he’s great. I would listen to his album still, but not something I lost my mind over in the same way I went crazy over “Say My Name” when it first came out.
Regardless of whatever it is he did though (back then with Say My Name and now with his Worlds album), I LOVE that he is bringing something new to the table. I don’t doubt that his sound will be unique. I can see it setting a precedent or sort of a mark in EDM culture in terms of the direction the music may be going in.
Even when his new album is not particularly my taste, gotta give him an A+
