Fifth Harmony – ‘Reflection’ (Album Review)

Fifth Harmony finally unveil their long delayed debut album ‘Reflection’!

It’s been a long time coming, but what better way to release something then starting off fresh with a brand new year?

Anyway ex-X Factor USA contestants who were put together on the show (think One Direction, except this time with ladies) under the group name Fifth Harmony. A decision which blended these young talents together to form an equally talented and harmonising group!

Not only have they gone and produced a catchy pop album, they also managed to collaborate with big industry names such as Meghan Trainor (famous for her “All About That Bass” hit) on catchy Destiny Child channeling dance bop “Brave Honest Beautiful” (which should have been on the standard edition!!). Kid Ink also features on Jason Derulo’s sister track (but better) “Worth It” and rapper Tyga makes an appearance on cooee and infectious “Like Mariah”.

For a debut album, ‘Reflection’ is certainly a perfect starter as it manages to deliver a variety of hit singles. While it’s not ‘***Flawless’, due to some tracks being a little weaker and repetitive (like “Them Girls Be Like”) when compared to the standouts of the album. But really, what’s an album without a few weaker tracks?

Hopefully the girls can dominate globally with this album, and judging by the mid-success (which deserved better attention) of “BO$$” and “Sledgehammer” they are slowly getting there!

Now there’s three great gal bands for the new generation, UK’s Little Mix and other US girl band G.R.L. (who have just returned with new single “Lighthouse”).

Best Tracks: BO$$, Sledgehammer, Worth It, Reflection, Body Rock.

Overall Rating:
7.5/10
