I'm halfway done listening to "All Things Bright and Beautiful" in it's entirety, start to finish. I don't think I've ever felt more happy or content with my existence. How does he do this

I don't see what people hate about the lyrics so much. It's seriously a breath of fresh air compared to everything else that's popular nowadays

I saw a rainbow cloud up in the sky as I got raped by a leprachaun. Then I rode the glorious tomato out of Heathcliff the cat with a pigeon's foot in the skyyyyyyyyy.

It's always the same
I%uFFFDm always ashamed
Storytelling when i can%uFFFDt come in
But one more time
I insist and I swear
I mean no offense
But you better learn to read
it's all about membership

I spell it for the young and old
Ugly girls and boys
I put you on my list
And make you clap to this
It's mayhem or just an ego trip
But only one can win
And soon you'll say that%uFFFDs him

D V N O
Four capital letters
Printed in gold
Because details make the girls sweat even more
while they're shaking their belt
No need to ask my name
to figure out how cool I am

Can anyone read, anyone feel
That I'm losing my patience
I just came here to bounce
Ladies out west, they all know I'm coming
I'm losing my patience
I just came here to bounce

I have his album that has Fireflies on it, I liked it a lot; can't speak for any of his other stuff, so this is just a comment on that album. The autotune preset he chose to use in every one of his songs appeals to me. The lyrics he writes are very interesting to me. My favorite aspect is his perception of nature and beauty. He talks things that are usually percieved as ugly, like gasoline and pictures of malls and shit, and embraces it with sheer love and joy that HOLY SHIT is exactly what I do.

I like a couple of his songs, but then there is a bunch of fucking nonsense like songs about brushing his teeth.

I'm mean... there is a limit on electronic music with gooey dumb lyrics.

The only song I ever heard people talking about by them was "Firefly" and although I liked the song, everybody who told me about it says "dude you got to see the music video." Well I saw the music video and it was like most other music videos... complete CRAP.

Anyways...

I mean, Major chords and poppy feel it can make you feel pretty uppity, but it's all pretty damn generic and when you listen to it enough all the songs sound the same.
