Selena Gomez – ‘Revival’ (ALBUM REVIEW)

Selena delivers another solid, yet more mature album…


Selena Gomez has gone through some major changes since her last album,  Stars Dance (also an insanely catchy pop fusion of an album) which have really helped her flourish on her brand-new album Revival.

From her breaking up with Justin Bieber to recently discovering that she suffered from a major illness, Gomez delves into issues of the heart. Tracks like Survivors and Sober give off a deeper emotional and affected side to Gomez, along with Perfect and Camouflage.

It’s truly a given if a pop star can really channel and resonate with listeners over past experiences, especially when avid fans keep close tabs on a given pop star’s personal life. I guess in essence it allows a great connection for fans to relate and feel attachment to the album.

Along with a more mature array of emotion, Selena is also owning and channelling a more sultry side. Hands To Myself and Good For You just ooze confidence and identify with listeners, as you just feel like strutting your stuff down a fashion runway or perhaps just being all hot and bothered in bed.

Revival certainly marks a wiser, more mature Gomez. She is no longer a Disney star turned pop diva, she is now a full-grown pop star ready to be taken seriously.

Favourite Tracks: Kill Em’ With Kindness, Hands To Myself, Sober, Survivors, Me And The Rhythm and Good For You.

Album Rating: 8/10
