Regardless of how you feel about overused profanity, this CD is a strong debut for a young artist. At such a young age, it is common for artists to use shock value to be heard, but past that, Eamon has a very unique style that incorporates urban and doo-wop styles. Occasionally it dips into boy-band renderings, but he's young, give him a break. I love his sound, and I will continue to buy his albums and support his career. And if the lyrics are too explicit for you- buy the clean version, the music is still worth it.
