Strange clouds

'It's really like a fusion between the hip-hop lifestyle and the people whose thoughts cross into the other realm of thinking �' That's what the artist says.

What this critic says, by way of reply, is ‘Huh?’ B.o.B has a whole lot of help on this, his sophomore effort, but sticks to the tried and tested as far as content goes. 

This may explain why his own contribution (Ray Bands, Where Are You) takes a backseat to collaborations such as Both of Us (featuring Taylor Swift), the title track featuring Lil Wayne and Out of My Mind (featuring Nicki Minaj).

The rest dissolves into an all-too-familiar blur about nightclubs, women, and women in nightclubs. Even the presence of Morgan Freeman on the opening track isn’t enough.
