  • The new album grows
  • New album is cool!
  • This guy has been touched by a magic wand. WONDERFUL new record "Chrissybaby Forever"!!!
  • I think the new one is better than the other two by leaps and bounds. Doesn't touch Girls, but it's pretty good.
  • Chris solo work is the reason why producers are needed. [2] Even more so now with this newer one.
  • arrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhh~~
  • Chris solo work is the reason why producers are needed. And I really miss Chet in Owens material. Sad.
  • New album is growing on me. Just got to stop comparing it to Girls.
  • Well. Not too sure about this new album. I would say this record is misstep, but this seems to be the direction that Owens has been wanting to take his music for quite some time. I noticed more of a lavish and full sound in his writing ever since the Broken Dreams Club EP. I defended the hell out of Lysandre last year and I still think that record was overlooked as there was a lot of great stuff going on in there. This one full embraces his love for country and that americana sound, but I'm not sure if it's connecting with me as much. Which is a shame, cause I've been such a fan of his work for awhile now.
