After such an impressive debut album, you’d think people would at least pay attention to what he had to offer next. Turns out, not everybody did.
But “Apollo” wasn’t all that bad. In fact, after a smash like “Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps,” what Fireboy did with his sophomore is some work. And to think, he didn’t really have long to do the album (due to no fault of ours, of course).
“Apollo,” of course came at a time there were a lot of buzzworthy projects, and it was consequently overshadowed by others that people liked better. Maybe.
Maybe that’s what happened to the album. Because it has far fewer hits than Fireboy’s first, and there are some songs on the album that sound brand new when you hear them now because nobody was really talking about them or anything.
Many people were quick to judge the album in the weeks after it dropped, and the general verdict seemed to be although it is a good album, it is not as good as his first album and that, to most people, is a disappointment.
But more than a year after, listening to “Apollo,” you realize maybe that judgment was too harsh after all. There are some worthy bops here, and some classic tunes there.
Let’s hear from you.
