I think it is high time to repress this album on vinyl, preferably a 2 LP. What do you guys think ?

Expected much from this after the three effective single-releases "don't call me baby", "who the hell are you?" and "everything you need". It was quite disappointing that the rest of the album is completely different: other tracks are mostly slow and boring, spiced with some jazz elements. Also a few slow under two minutes long tracks, which only disturb. Can't recommend for those who have liked the singles. If you have liked the singles, and also are into wannabe-stylish stuff, you might like this album.
