1 - Prelude
Nice intro, has a good soft beat to it kinda sets you up for the rest fo the album

2 - Lets get Lifted 4/5

This is a nice song, one of my faves on the album, has a good feel to it and a real nice beat. The lyrics are nice and the whole meaning behind the song is nice, a great song to relax to.

3 - Used to love you 3/5

This was his first released single, and it's a great commercial track abit diffrent from most stuff that is released, It has a nice piano beat, nice meaningful lyrics and the whole idea around the song is good, he uses nice wordplay throughout the entire song, The hook is really catchy and had me humming along to it.

4 - Alright 2/5
This was probably the song on the album i disliked the most, it isnt that it's a bad song it just seems to be the same thing throughout there is no change in pace or flow, it has a nice beat though and the lyrics are good, the hook is abit boring and didnt atract me to the song

5 - She don't have to know 3/5
This song had a nice beat to it, the lyrics arent bad and there is a nice flow throughout the song, this is another that is easy to relax to, the hook is also preety catchy.

6 - Number one ft Kanye West 3.5/5
This songs real catchy, kanye definetly makes this a better song but JL def makes it a good track aswell, the hook is real catchy and has a nice overall tune to it, the lyrics are real catchy and easy to listen to, the concept of the song is good also. Kanye's verse is the best on this song, his lyrics are nice and his flow is on point.

7 - I can change ft Snoop Dogg 3/5
This was something diffrent as i never imagined JL collabing with snoop dogg, and this could of gone two ways either been a disaster or been a great track, and personally i think they worked well togeather. The beat is real catchy and both JL and Snoop sound preety good on this song.

8 - Ordinary people 4/5

This was anouther released single and had a real good concept to it, once again the beat was nice and the hook was really catchy.

9 - Stay with you 3/5

This has a laid back clma beat to it which slowely, comes more intot he song as it goes on, the lyrics are nice and have alot of meaning.

10 - lets get lifted again 2/5

This again has a nice beat and a nice feel to it, it gets abit boring in parts as there isnt much content to the song but overall it isnt bad.

11 - So high 2.5/5
This has a preety nice beat to it as do most of the songs, nothing special about this track, it's not rubbish but nothing special.

12 - Refuge (When it's cold outside) 5/5

This is by far the best song on the album, it has a real catchy beat, great lyrics and a real catchy hook that would keep anyone listening on.

13 - It don't have to change ft The Stephens Family 4.5/5
This song is one of my other faves, has real nice lyrics to it and has a tight beat that is easy to listen to.

14 - Livin it up ft Miri Ben-Ari 3/5

This songs another one that is simply ok, there's nothing special about it but it isnt bad.
