The one thing I remember from listening to Fender’s first album is that he sounded a bit like Bruce Springsteen. I think this time round he’s leaned into that quite a lot, but that’s no bad thing - why not emulate the Boss where you can? Fender comes across as an angry young man in this, he has things to say, but it’s not ranty, which is a really fine line to tread. I actually really liked it, despite not knowing any of the songs going into it.
