The Artist: Charles Hamilton
The EP: This Perfect Life (Interscope, 2009)
The Shortcoming: This thing was doomed from the start. Hamilton and Interscope came up with a wacky plan to release his major label debut (which they called an album but was really more like an EP) digitally two months before releasing it in stores. But then Hamilton caught a bunch of bad press and it was never released at all and was instead leaked to the blogs months later to very little fanfare. Perfect? Eh, not so much.
