Calvin Harris – Motion Review

2 November 2014 5:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, we finally have Motion, the fourth studio album from Edm sensation Calvin Harris. To say that it shows little effort on the DJ’s part to innovate and challenge himself would be an understatement, for the music here is as close to Calvin’s comfort zone as it can get. From the hard hitting Overdrive to the cute and catchy Outside, almost every track on the disc is representative of an artist playing things very safe and sticking to the motto, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Although, when you’re arguably the biggest DJ in the world, is there anything wrong with that?

That’s likely going to be the biggest debate surrounding Motion. Is it alright for Calvin to play it safe if he’s able to produce chart-topping hits that send festivalgoers into a frenzy, or should he be pushing boundaries »
