12 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Detroit singer/songwriter Mike Posner's debut album apparently hinges on a 'higher' moment exactly 31 minutes into proceedings, but the real focal point, of course, is clackingly catchy number one "Cooler Than Me." Distilling an affection for syncopated synths and bothersome relationships, Posner strikes gold mining subtle EDM ("Cheated") and heavy electro ("Baby Please Don't Go"). But he’s not entirely down-on-his-luck with the ladies: the purring electro groove of "Bow Chicka Wow" sees him in rare form and “Déjà Vu”’s ‘90s R&B slinkiness is so romantic Boyz II Men back him up.

This is only the beginning.

After listening to Mike Posner's mixtapes, A Matter of Time and One Foot Out the Door, it shows that Mike Posner has created a new stream of music by fusing several genres of music together to bring together different vibes and people of different backgrounds. This is album is a very solid debut album while showcasing his varying inspirations and genres. Although without the ability to include rapping verses or features of other artists, 31 Minutes to Takeoff only shows the beginning and a sky rocketing career. Each track exhibits an emotion that correlates to the soul. Even though the album produces slightly less than expected, it is the ideal debut album allowing his subsequent albums to blast off in true Mike Posner form. Look for his next album to be a classic, while this album remains a solid foundation of a great career. Buy this album. You will not be disappointed.
