Today is Selena released her second, fifth overall, album entitled “Revival.” The album is pretty much the first adult Selena album due to it’s her first album not under Hollywood Records, better known as Disney’s label.
The majority of the album is Selena Gomez opening up her life and trying on different genre’s of music. The album also gives vibes of “Stars Dance,” which I nicknamed “Selena wants the D.” This album I have nicknamed “Selena got the D and chopped it off.” And like “Stars Dance,” “Revival” is full of catchy songs but with a touch of profanity and more sexual innuendos than the Canadian kid’s show “Space Teens.”
It’s pretty much the perfect amount of sass, heartbreak, and long lonely sad nights eating ice cream alone while watching Netflix. “Sober” is pretty much one of the best songs on the album along with “Kill Em With Kindness,” “Me & The Rhythm,” and “Body Heat.” (We all ready know that “Good For You” and “Same Old Love” is my jams as well.) The rest of the songs are good but they aren’t up to par. Sure they are catchy but they aren’t something I find myself constantly listening to. Again, they aren’t bad but not fully up to their potential, which is the same for this album.
Like “Stars Dance,” This album is good but just feels like it could be better and more polish. Sure, it has a lot of meaning and is deep but it’s not a great as it sold be. The vocals are pretty much the best they have sounded and seems less studio made.
Overall, I highly recommend purchasing and listening to the album if you were a fan of “Stars Dance,” but if you are looking for something to start your life as a Selenator, I would recommend some of her “Selena Gomez & The Scene” stuff because it’s somewhat rather better.
