Let's read a couple highlights from an interview BuddyTV recently conducted with American Idol runner-up, Blake Lewis. His album hit stores this week...

How would you describe the feel of the album, and the songs that are on the album, to someone who might not be a fan of yours yet? Easy. Well, if they were born in the ‘80s they'll get it. I call it my 2080s record. All of my influences are very '80s derived: Michael Jackson, Prince, U2, The Police, The Cure, Erasure, New Order, Depeche Mode. All of my melodic tendencies are basically ‘80s driven, so the record has this very electro soul funk pop kind of feel to it, where every song transitions or doesn't transition into the next song.
