While browsing various review sites and blogs to try and plagiarize some words to put in my description I noticed something very disturbing.  A lot of ironic statements and oxymoron's being thrown around in the face of Donovan Wolfington's latest release, "How To Treat The Ones You Love".  Most of the sites throw around the words generic, not as good as the EP, not bad but not great, etc; but give these guys 4/5 stars or like an 8.0 rating.  Let's be real here, this album isn't magnificent, did anyone expect it to be the greatest thing you ever heard? No, of course not.  But the fact is, the varying styles presented in the album and the experimentation done while writing and recording this songs in nothing less than amazing.  I'd like to see you start a Weezer tribute band (kidding) and throw in some Trash Talk-esque songs, I bet you wouldn't, cause you're a little bitch.  Seriously though, give them a listen.  This album is definitely worth checking out, and being as amazing as it is I give it a solid 3/10.
