The way Halsey collects her energy in this album and translates it into how her mental illness feels is incredible. The first time I listened to it I felt more understood. I can’t even describe it. This is a superb masterpiece in describing and shedding light on Bipolar Disorder and how Halsey struggles with it. Just listen to the lyrics- it’s all there.
Everything about this album is perfect. Halsey is a true artist. No song on this album sounds the same. The lyrics are poetry, really. I love every single song on this album and I’m super proud of her. I listen to it multiple times a day. It’s a favorite.
Nobody can compare to Halsey’s lyrics. This album is the most heartfelt, honest album I have ever heard. We get to see a lot of Halsey here. We see her insecurities, her vices, and her honest truth. It is so refreshing to hear more introspective music when it feels like every artist (with notable exceptions) just wants to make a radio hit (which is awesome and has its place). The overall sound of the album changes a lot. From pop to country, rock to alternative, the sonic nature of the album leaves you on the edge of your seat. It maintains the same narrative function that Halsey’s other albums have had. It is an amazing album full of songs to play when you just need to feel like someone else gets what you’re going through.
I gotta agree with a lot of reviews...these songs just feel generic. There are a few songs that are enjoyable but the other songs sound the same & there’s no passion. Idk. Maybe pop is just getting too bland these days. I think foreign music is just so good that domestic artists just don’t have the appeal anymore.
honestly, this album is just mind blowing. like i don’t have any words. she just left me speechless. her opening up about her personal struggles and learning from her mistakes is just.....so awe-inspiring. and boy!! this album was a straight up ROLLERCOASTER. i was feeling all the feelings!! one song, i felt warm and happy, and the next one, i felt sad and the need to bawl my eyes out. “more” got me the hardest, not gonna lie. anyways, i love this album. she has not disappointed me.
This album really feels like Ashley is ripping herself open and showing her vulnerability. The songs are beautiful, and feel very much like her. She has amazing talent, and this album shows just how human she is.
After turning out two tumblr-esque fake-deep albums, she’s finally grown into herself as an artist. Great and interesting production and a good few genre-bending songs (Country influences on “You should be sad,” pop-punk on “3am), plus great lyrics that aren’t afraid to get actually deep. This is her most personal and authentic body of work to date.
Except the singles rest of the album is not really good Lyrically they have meanings and good But they really doesn’t sound like Halsey at all I am wondering if this album is really made for maniacs ? Thank you, Next
While it isn’t her best album, it does have some very good songs that I would repeat lots of times. “You Should Be Sad” and “3AM” are my favorites. The downers are: forever is a long time, Suga’s Interlude, Still Learning. Overall, it’s a decent album. Score: 3.5/5
