    I like Purpose a lot, that one's pretty weird (the chorus at least).

    Five of Everything's a little weird as far as singles go, and it's my favorite single theyve done in awhile.

    Writer's Block Party's dope.

    This is yet another example of SA bringing a song to another level - in this case, lyrically.

    IGOKN is a straight up up-tempo rock song. It doesn't try new things, it just goes moderately fast and does it well. It's a really fun song. But those lyrics. What's maybe most wild is it's not even a sad song about death. It's just... accepting. That might be the oddest aspect of all.

    Yes there is certainly juxtaposition between the lyrics and tempo. But also between the rocking instrumental with such a smooth melody he sings

    Don't forget about Lemming: too experimentally weird to live, too rare to die.

    Seems Uncertain is really weird to me.

    Maybe the weirdness is enhanced because every time I hear it I think about how Nick said he played it for Pharell before it came out and he described it as "the shit."

    Pharell goes from having to work with Robin Thicke to getting to work with Daft Punk within months. I bet his world is all kinds of messed up from those kinds of disparities.
