On Tuesday, January 27, Fifth Harmony’s début album “Reflection” was streamed via iTunes Radio for the world to hear it in it Deluxe Edition glory. So I decided to write a review of the album before it comes out next week so you can decided to buy it or pass on it.
The album itself is very decent album. The songs are catchy and very danceable, not to the point of their EP “Better Together,” but still to the point that the songs will be stuck in your head like musical gonorrhea and the doctor’s prescription to get rid of it is to listen to this album even more. The sad part is that none of the songs really stand out besides the beats. They all seem to blend together. I thought the first two songs off the album was the same song until opened up iTunes and saw that it was a new song. The album reminded me of The Pussycat Dolls (the band). The album had that “Buttons” and “Don’t Cha” feel to it. It’s just sad that the songs run together like hearing Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone” and Beyonce’s “Halo.”
Overall, the album is good début album but I don’t think this album will have any extended listening after the first few weeks. Hopefully, their second album is better because they have the potential to be the Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood of our version of “X Factor,” but their success may be short live if they don’t show on their next album. This album is a buy if you liked their other hits, which are actually way better. But if you have spotify or something like it, I would pass on it and just listen to it on there.
Rating: 3.5 versions of X Factor out of 5
