POINTS OF DELIVERY

Billboard

Consequence of sound

Its an album that Justin Bieber had to


make
Hes in no position to gloat
Biebs needs to seem humble, repentant,
and grown up
Purpose isn't a downer. Its a party record
Melt in Biebers downy, still-boyish vocals
Bieber truly shows his growth
Hell overplay his renewed spirituality
Purpose turns skeptics into born-again
Beliebers.

Purposeaims to present the mature Bieber


However, Bieber lacks the showmanship,
spunk, comedic timing, or vocal chops of
the other Justins (Justin Timberlake)
Begs for sympathy in a way that
simultaneously makes you feel sorry for
Biebers lost childhood and repulsed by his
blindness to his own immense privilege
Its not clear by the final track whether
hes truly turned a new leaf or just gotten
better at faking it

One wonders why the
Canadian pop star didnt just
schedule a very serious and
very special sit-down with
Oprah to expunge his
contrite soul instead of
letting music serve as his
mea culpa. (at the middle of
para 1)
