The counterstrike, so to speak, is noticing that some critics have an issue with this: his music seems inauthentic to them because it is so facile. It's not innovative enough, not edgy enough, not strange enough, not tortured enough. Yeah, what a criticism; it's only in the arts that someone can be -too- good at what they do.
So it's great stuff, and in the man's own words, "Don't take any s**t from anyone!"
