Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You:

Want a no brainer pop album to not pay attention to.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It’s pretty sharp, I think it’s a really cool looking picture that makes me really want to get into this album.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Not in the slightest.

Final Thoughts:

Selling out. to me, is when you leave your fanbase to try to make music that’s popular at the time. That’s exactly what’s wrong with Good Sinner, this isn’t the Pigeon John I know and love. This is a Pigeon John that has been shaped by what is popular. The music is catchy for the moment then instantly forgotten. The lyrics are meaningless and radio friendly. I get that you have to make money as an artist, but it’s sad to see one of my favourites (the creator of great tunes like As We Know It and Rock Bottom Again) churn out an album as poor as this. The Identity Crisis continues, please go back to Dragon Slayer and/or Pigeon John Is Dating Your Sister.
