Yeah doesn’t sound like country music but can you at least appreciate her and what she’s doing in her music like I’m a big Bring Me the Horizon fan they went from death metal to straight pop music I’m OK with that yeah because it sounds good just appreciate the music or don’t listen too it
IMO Maren is at her best on the introspective country-influenced songs and on R&B songs. She has an amazing bluesy quality to her voice. This album is strong, I like all the songs except Flavor and The Feels whose “flavors” can be likened to a Chunky bar (with raisins) and strawberry soda, respectively. People are sleeping on Great Ones and To Hell & Back, I love these two. I won’t bother talking about the singles, they’re good. All My Fave Ppl is fun & about as country as the album gets, RSVP calls Joss Stone to mind, and Song for Everything is a nostalgic sing-along type. Common has a bit of a flawed premise for me, as though somehow her lack of religious conviction applies to everyone & therefore no one in the world should feel strongly enough to have disagreements; but nonetheless I really like it. Beautiful, solid song & I can appreciate the sentiment. It reminds me of Miguel’s Candles in the Sun but more optimistic. Which just gave me the idea that there needs to be a Maren / Miguel original collaboration, it’d be fire. Seriously, I need this.
Perfect record for a road trip. A little bit country, pop & soul. Maren is definitely cooking up her own flavor and it's fantastic! Listen to the album more than once and you'll be hooked. For the "it's not country" naysayers, wait until "All My Favorite People" hits country radio. It's so catchy I sing it in my sleep! "Girl" lifts me up, and I can't say enough about the tone & quality of her voice. Truly talented - her range, depth, and "Shade" are stellar. If you're a singer like me, you need to master this one!
I don't see how people think this girl can sing. She is straight up AWFUL!! She should not be in music at all. I think this is a waste of time. SHE CANNOT SING!! U all want a singer/song writer take a look at Ashley McBryde. Now that girl has talent and may r u all need to take time to hear the best in country music in a long time and stop wasting time with this Marin Morris she is no singer. If I could I would give her negative -100
This album was surprisingly good! I’m not as big into country as I used to be but Marren really brought me back to it with the twang and pop vibes! Loved it and would have loved to see her in concert.
Love this album! Do people even listen to the music before they leave these comments or is it just because it’s just not traditional country and they can’t except it’s good music! You can say you don’t like it but to just trash it is ridiculous! There are some miserable people out there.
This album is beautiful and creative. Just because it doesn’t “sound country” doesn’t make it any less country. Country music is about storytelling too and she does that so well. Okay, it’s pop-y, but it still takes us through a journey of relatable topics in life! If I want that true country feel I’ll listen to Chris, Blake, Luke Combs etc. but this is still a great album with meaning, which to me is something you will ONLY find in country music!
I've always loved Maren and her music! no, all her songs aren't always country, but she's an unproblematic girl with some pretty good songs. & that's enough for two thumbs up from me! The Bones is probably one of my favorites atm! I think people are too harsh, just because her whole album doesn't have that old-time country twang to it. she has a good amount of songs that I would consider country. just because they're all not about drinking or pick-up trucks y'all wanna complain. you're doing amazing, Maren!
Genres evolve. Country has evolved and Maren Morris is fighting for change. She brings inclusion, equality, and a much needed female advocate for a paradigm shift within country . She is the real deal. In contrast to Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton, she writes almost all her hit songs.
I’ll never understand the hate... girl is so creative with her lyrics and hits the heart and soul every time... stop labeling music and “country music” music is amazing when it makes you feel something and heals you. STOP PUTTING MUSIC IN A BOX... music is whatever it wants to be that’s the point. Girl is a brilliant album and she’s an incredible performer hands down 💕💕💕
