I find it interesting that people tend to get so upset when an artist changes their sound significantly. Though it isn't the same as the album that made you fall in love with his music, doesn't mean that it's a wrong direction. I really think people should try to enjoy new directions of artist more openly, enjoy it for what it is, not based on how it scales to early albums of a completely different style... Maybe that's just me.
Hoyas is excellent! It sounds completely different than All We Grow, of course, because he's trying to achieve a new sound and a whole new dimension with using electronic instruments what he really proved within this project. Give it a try, folks.
