Album Review: What Were You Hoping For? by Van Hunt

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

Paste Magazine - 81
Based on rating 8.1/10

For a while, Van Hunt was a well-connected industry type, writing and producing for pop singers like Dionne Farris, Joi and Nikka Costa. He’s even managed by Randy “Pitchy Dawg” Jackson. But beneath his velvet-smooth, VH1-friendly lover man persona is a bit of a superfreak. His evocative arrangements have always shown touches of Prince and Peter Gabriel; he covered Iggy Pop on his sophomore album and recorded a third album so free-wheeling and unconcerned with genre or anyone’s hopes that he become John Legend 2.0 that his previous label refused to put it out it.

His new “B!tch, I’m a Player” (Goomba/Thizz City) is his best and most consistent release since last year’s booming, goofy “Roachy Balboa” mixtape.
