Jon Bellion – The Definition | Album Review

I downloaded Jon Bellion‘s latest album The Definition last night and have sense been on quite the listening binge. I started the day off listening to the album from song number one on the car ride to work and was quickly enthused by the multitude of sounds and melodies that one would expect to hear from a Jon Bellion record. The songs where light yet upbeat, melodic but unexpected, unique and hypnotic. Once I got to work I quickly went to Soundcloud, plugged my head phones in and began to listen once more. After the first Run through it was pretty clear I was a fan and had no trouble listening all throughout the day. The record was so cohesively orchestrated but presented the listener with a different experience in every song. It was not long before I had gone through the album 3 times in a row and by that time had a few songs in my head that stuck out as being my favorite.

Let me start off by saying Jon in the past has frequently showed off his skills both as a musician and as a producer. His last four projects all showed a unique and interesting side of Jon that seemed to showcase one of Jon’s many talents and it is in my opinion that this one not only accentuated his musical abilities but also found him exploring a world of repetition through lyrics that really seemed to work. Songs like “Simple and Sweet,” “Run Wild” and “Carry Your Throne” all present the listener with enthusiastic repetition both in lyrics and melody that seem to stick with the you long after the song has ended, leaving quite the mark and impression.

Some of the most outstanding tracks in my opinion had to be “Jungle” and “Ohh” Ft. Christianne Jensen. “Jungle” stood out to me because of its simple yet effective melodic sound. There was something very familiar about the chorus and it was because of this that I was quickly intrigued by the record all the way through. The subject of the song further enticed me as one can completely relate to going out and being presented with many choices throughout the night that will end up taking you down many different roads. The lyrics “There’s quicksand in the night life, it will swallow you whole” where both moving and true to life and in the end where elements that made this record especially special.

Our second favorite, “Ohh” shone through the brightest and did so for many reasons. The first had to be the light ambient, airiness to the beat that was completely littered with an onslaught of sounds including the likes of a consistent back beat, strings that make a beautiful appearance throughout the song and an amazing use of synths and sounds that make up a beautiful back drop to the lyrics that accompany it. Jon’s vocals are effortless yet effective from beginning to end and really capture the listener in both sounds and topic. Half way through the song we are graced by an accomliment from Christianne Jensen that is short lived yet musically genius as it adds just the perfect amount of female touch to the record making for an all out hit when all is said and done.

All in all I have to hand it to Jon. He has done so much in the past year. From writing and producing a song for Jason Durulo to making an entire album to which is masterfully put together and thought out. His hard work shines through and it gives me no doubt that this guy will soon be in the public eye in no time. I give this record a solid 9/10 and look forward to whatever else may come from Jon. Till then I will be blissfully jamming out to The Definition for a good long while! #BOOM.
