Maybe I'm getting old

Is it alright to like Akon's new album? It's SOOOOOOOOOooooo Europop-py (which was cool in the 90s, but is now so cliche since Ace of Base) and much more commercial than Konvicted. The video for Right Now, if you were to mute the sound, looks like typical pre-Freedom material. It doesn't match the music.

At first, it was, "Oh no, he sold out."

BUT...it didn't stop me from playing it all day long today. At home, at Mister Donut, on my run...it's addictive. The last time I've had this kind of reaction was after getting some Explosions in the Sky off iTunes (I watched the movie Friday Night Lights only once, by the way, and thought "whatever").

So either it's perfectly alright, or I've become a sheep-like consumer. Help me, please.
