Empty: 5/5
What a lovely song! I loved the little filtered voice intro. The rap was really great in the beginning and especially the Vocals were amazing. They have such special voice colors it’s nice to listen to them. The intstrumental was kept pretty simple with a basic clap rythm going throughout the song. The part after the 2nd chorus with the high notes was a great change up with the little slower part right after.
Color Ring: 3.5/5
Love the guitar instrumental. The harmonization with the deep and high voice was amazing. I found that the vocals didnt really fit with the simple guitar instrumental but the rap was great. I loved the rap parts more. The vocals for the build up were good too. The end got much richer with the adlibs and the exchange in lines with a much more active instrumental.
Don’t Flirt: 5/5
So groovy! This is such a bop. The reggaeish instrumental is awesome. The rap is perfect. It sounds really great and fitting with the rythm. The build up and the chorus are so catchy. The instrumental is also kept pretty simple but it’s just with such a good rythm and beat that it doesn’t feel like it. The callping breakdown at the end with the nice vocals was great. The ending “dadada” gave it a great caribbean vibe.
I’m Him: 4/5
Rap is starting off the song again and it sounds very good! Loved the instrumental for the build up and how they played with the pace of the lyrics from verse to build up. This has more of a hip hop vibe which is amazing. The rap was really great throughout the song.
Love Is A Lie: 4.5/5
This song is so good! The intro is already amazing with the adlibs and keyboard instrumental followed by some nice vocals and a rap for the longer verse. Chorus is catchy with a great “old school” feeling instrumental. It was a bit annoying tho. The vocal verse followed by a rap verse is a perfect match. The bridge before the last chorus sounded nice.
Confession: 4/5
I normally don’t like slow ballads too much but this one sounded really nice. The piano instrumental supported by the light vocals and little high notes for the build up were great. The chorus took the pace up a bit which was followed by a slow verse again. They play good with their range and harmonies. High notes near the end were awesome.
But: 3.5/5
This kind of had a lullaby vibe to it. The instrumental were guitar strings which got extended with a drum beat. It took up the pace when the rap verse hit. The chorus sounded really nice but was a bit lackluster. The verses were amazing, they had a great laid back sound. They played with some harmonies again which sounded very nice.
Different: 3.5/5
The beginning rap was awesome. The instrumental gave me some old school vibes. The rythm was pretty laid back but after the short break before the chorus it took up the pace. The chorus sounded really nice. Their vocals mixed well with each other. It’s a bit repetitive because the instrumental didn’t change up besides the verses and chorus, it was always the same with little changes.
Tonight: 3/5
The song is really nice listening too. It’s also laid back and the chorus takes the pace up again.
It kinda got boring listening to the song tho. Even if it sounded different too the other songs it felt kinda repetitive
Smile Again: 4/5
The song had a very different feel than the other songs. It sounded more upbeat and had more depth. They definitely played more with their range and pitch throughout the song. I liked the instrumental, the synth in the chorus was used great. The chorus is pretty catchy.
Overall: 4
A pretty solid album with some nice bops. Some songs sounded too repetitive for me.
