Time for an interesting album review! Billie Eilish is one of the most unique musicians I’ve seen in the modern era of music. Something about this young woman makes me wonder what goes through her mind as she comes up with her lyrics and her sound. This album got me thinking like, “How does she come up with this sound?” I mean that in a good way. Today’s album review will be on Billie Eilish’s WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
Released on March 29th last month, this album features 14 tracks. On the Japanese edition, the album features two bonus tracks. Each song speaks in literature to me. Billie has some interesting lyrics in her songs and that’s pretty cool. Not to mention, her voice. Her voice is so soft and somewhat low, but that makes her standout. In a way she reminds me of Lorde. I said the same thing about Lorde when I first heard her music years ago and Billie Eilish is in the same category as Lorde. They both have soft, unique voices. The tracks here almost have the same tone to them but they do have different sounds.
There’s some big hits on this album such as You Should See Me in a Crown, Bad Guy, Wish You Were Gay, My Strange Addiction, Bury a Friend, etc. Most of these songs have messages and that to me makes a good song. A song with a message behind it can almost be an instant hit. You Should See Me in a Crown is possibly the biggest song on this album as it’s her biggest hit. That song in particular got me interested in listening to this whole album and I’m glad I did. I’m not particularly a huge fan of Billie but this album got me hooked to see what she will do next in the music industry.
My favorite tracks on this album are Bad Guy and Bury a Friend. Bad Guy is just a catchy song to me, making me wanna do a two step dance. Bury a Friend just has as special tone to it as Billie herself said that this song inspired this whole album. She claims she knew what the album was gonna be once she created this song. Now that really is inspiration.
I’m gonna rate this album 8/10. Again I really enjoyed the sound and lyrics as they stand out and makes her an unique artist. Even the album cover is cool yet a little creepy. Billie Eilish is onto something here, and this album got her on the right track. I’m interested in hearing more from her and maybe her next album could top this one. Give the album a good listen if you haven’t already!
