Reverie by Ben Platt

It took me a while to get my head around what this album was - it’s kind of eighties in the feel of the disco beats, but not full on synth eighties, more of a stripped back sound. And at some point a random saxophone pops up. The songs are good, meaningful and Ben has a great voice, but I’m not sure this will be particularly memorable for me going forward. The three Titanic songs were a bit odd too, but then I did quite like the way they helped know where you are in the album - beginning, middle, and end.
