Hii Oreos! Today I’ll be doing another album review. I’ve been wanting to do more.
You can read my first one here! where I reviewed Walls by Louis Tomlinson
In this post, I’ll be reviewing Olivia Rodrigo’s Debut Album, SOUR.
This song is way different from the others in this album. Brutal is a really relatable song, but it’s weird because I can’t relate to it….yet? or I could say, I can relate to this in an odd way.. Well, this is definitely one of my favourite songs because it has great beats.
Traitor has great lyrics, not a song I would listen to often though. This is one of the soft ballad-y songs on the album.
3. 1 Step forward, 3 steps back
This song, I feel like it lacked originality. It somehow felt like I was listening to Taylor’s songs, but I still really liked it. I do listen to this a lot, and it would probably be one of my favourite songs as well.
4. Jealousy, Jealousy
The song has amazing lyrics, light pop music and is very relatable which makes the song more likable. I LOVE this song.
5. Driver’s License
This is where it all started! I love everything about this song, the lyrics, the beat, the music video, everything. 5/5 stars
6. Good 4 U
This is also different from rest of the album, and this is my favourite song from SOUR. I’ve been listening to it on repeat ever since it came out! 😉
7. Deja Vu
This song, I feel like has the most inventive lyrics. I loved the aesthetics of the music video, and how it had a different vibe from Driver’s License. I also really liked the harmonies!
When I first listened to it, I honestly didn’t like it a lot…but it grew on me. This song has great lyrics, and I really like it!
9. Enough for you
This song gets you teary eyed…even if you can’t relate to it, which is me. Again, this has great lyrics, and I loved it first-listen.
(Does that even make sense or-) I loved the tune, and I definitely recommend listening to it.
10. Hope ur ok
Hope ur ok, the last track of the album has a narrative lyrics style, which I like! But I honestly don’t find myself listening to this a lot. Still a good song though.
My *honest* opinion
Overall, this is a great album! But my honest opinion would be that it lacked originality. Somehow, the songs and lyrics sounded similar to Taylor Swift’s, and we know how big of a swifty Olivia is. I still love the album though😆✨💕
I also felt like I was listening to the same song over and over, because most of the songs are simple/soft ballads but that could be just me.
Favourite songs: Good 4 U, Driver’s License, Jealousy, Jealousy
This is a really solid debut album with lots of bops and songs to cry to. It’s honest, lyrically beautiful, and it really lets you feel all the feelings in just over half an hour. Can I also mention that I love the album cover?
I would rate this album 4/5 stars. You can listen to SOUR here!
I hope you enjoyed! Thank you for reading!💛😊
