The album provides enough distractions to get you through the day. Circular logic be damned - MIMS debut ends up doing a pretty decent job of showing us why he's hot.
"Music saved my life. It kept me
inside, it brought me home early; it kept me in the right place, at the right
time. So I dedicate this album to music. Music is my savior."
With such deep words in the intro track, one might expect Music Is My Savior to be an
introspective album. Then again, if you don't live under a rock, you've heard MIMS' single, "This is Why I'm Hot" -
which suggests entirely the opposite. The excruciatingly simplistic lyrics, the
uninteresting flow and the unimaginative subject matter of what may be the
year's biggest hit single suggest that Music
Is My Savior is just the same 'ol shit.
Well, for the most part, the assumption is an accurate one. You've got "Superman,"
which is sort of a mix between "This is Why I'm Hot" and Kelis' "Bossy." If that sounds too horrible to imagine, it's
because it is. The shit is an insult.
