Actor/singer Darren Criss recently propelled into the spotlight with an acclaimed turn as Blaine on Fox’s hit series Glee, boosted by a show-stealing cover of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.”
On Human, an EP released by the singer earlier this year, the singer presents a selection of self-penned songs. The quality of the album is low-key at best; the songs were recorded in one take, with no adjustments made before the EP’s release. The songwriting, though, shows smart pop potential, and Criss’ vocals stand as a highlight. With more time put into a proper project, Criss has a lot of potential as an artist.
