It seems as though i'm late to this party.

CeeLo released this Heart Blanche about a year and a half ago, and I'm just now catching the vibe. But that vibe is solid. I've always loved the way CeeLo arranges melodies, and the tracks here meet every expectation.

Now i know he's been problematic in the past, but since we often look past the personal problems of our favorite artists to enjoy their craft, especially when it comes to music (Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, etc.), I've had this album on repeat lately.

My favorite songs are "Est. 1980s," "Mother May I," and "Sign of the Times."
