This new album is more than I expected! The perfect amount of country, pop, modern day beats and even a dash of retro! Her duet with Halsey is pure sugar to the ears, a vulnerable song which I consider a modern day 'The Boy is Mine' but with a twist. BRAGGER is just a good old time! I can sense a bit of retro 60's pop in this one - always makes me want to dance (even in the street) Like i used to is the ultimate "forgot about you" anthem. We can all relate to this one. Country song is just a mood in itself - We all have those days where we can literally write a song about how we feel - this one is it! A beautiful collection of songs and confessionals! <3
I dont know i just really love this album my favorite is “the other girl”. its just a really good album if. you dont like it them dont listen to it ,common sense ps sorry about grammer i when back on my phone to type this review
This is not a bad album as whole when taken from a genre agnostic view. As a pop album this is good. However, it does not have really any resemblance to country. If someone is expecting that, because it is technically classified as such, they will be disappointed.
Kelsea has always been a true talent in my eyes. I’m not one of those “it’s not country” haters; I’m analyzing the album from a lyrical, production-wise standpoint and in relation to her past releases. Many of the songs on this album are very well produced and have compelling melodies. (Ex. the other girl and bragger). Other songs shine lyrically. (Ex. love and hate, half of my hometown, and la). Some songs just flat-out throw Kelsea’s life experience out there with some catchy beats in the background. (Ex. overshare and hole in the bottle). Overall, most songs on the album are great. I would recommend to buy, but if you don’t have “The First Time” or “Unapologetically”, get one of them instead. If you really like them for the lyrics, production, and voice of the singer, then “kelsea” is a great album that I would highly recommend for you.
This girl is very talented, this will be a great album!! Love the song Club, and Homecoming Queen! Can’t wait for the new music to come! I will definitely be buying this soundtrack!! Keep it coming!! 🔥🔥🔥❤️😀 You are a good country singer, don’t let people pull you down.. they just are jealous! Love!! Highly recommended I love every song that you produce and love the album!!! Luv
This album has been on repeat for the last week, I’ve been a fan since The First Time and am not disappointed. Sure not all of it may sound “country”, but it is still such a great album and you can tell that she really put her blood, sweat, and tears into this album. I love the vulnerability of it all, it makes it really relatable. Probably my favorite album of hers so far, and so happy she could get some really big artists like Kenny Chesney to be apart of it all. Amazing album Kelsea ❤️
This is an awesome album. You deserve everything in the world. I saw you once during the meaning of life tour with Kelly and you were amazing. I’m so glad I found you. Thanks for your music it has helped me through everything. You are a real down to earth person. I love you!
kelsea always pulls through. she really popped off with this one. the production, lyrics, instruments, overall sound is WONDERFUL. her best work 👏 i only have positive things to say about this album.
Jeez, what with the hate? If you don't have anything good to say, then don't say it. I assume if I went and looked at Taylor Swift's reviews from her non-country albums, you probably slammed her as well. This is a great mix of genres. And a great mix of songs... both musically and lyrically.
Wow. Well done, Kels. This is the best album yet. From the lyrics to the melodies to the production....YOU’RE ONE TALENTED HUMAN BEING! I’ll forever support you through thick and thin. PS I took the chance in catching the Coronovirus to buy this album! Anything for you. ❤️
I am huge fan of kelsea. this has some really lovely songs on it (homecoming queen and half of my hometown, hole in the bottle) I gave it 4 stars because I really enjoy a few songs on it. I don’t think it has the cohesion of telling a consistent story as an album. Maybe it’s because each song had a different writer or collaborator on it, some of the collabs were awesome, but you can feel that inconsistency if you play it as a record straight through. Individually, some of the songs are shining stars that will live long on country radio.
Usually, I don’t write a review but I was disappointed in a language word in a song. I think the singing is amazing but it wasn’t even labeled explicit. The innocent country is the best!
I love every song on this album. I like every song on all of her albums so I ain’t surprised. My favorites are “the way I used to” and “the other girl” ft Halsey. Had those in repeat all day today. Wonderful job Kelsea!! Applause!!!!! 🤩 ❤️ This whole album got me some type of way.
I'm 71 years old, and most of the songs don't draw me, but, as usual with this young lady, there are always two or three songs that grab my heart: this time, "Half of my home town" and "Needy." Finely crafted, heartfelt songs. Once this young lady matures--if she's not ruined by fame--she will be a superb songwriter and performer.
This album is her best yet and has not one bad song. It’s a really good mix of country and a little bit of pop which I love!! I have always loved kelsea and her music. Keep writing amazing bops kels 💘💘💗💗!!!
Hey Don’t look at me, not my fault Kelsea Ballerini wanted to do this! Not like someone had a Gun to her face! I respect her edgy style to County, and it’s Country Pop by the way! Her Duet with Halsey shows how She adds Kick to her music! Keep it up Kelsea!
