Fifth Harmony’s sophomore album is full of bubblegum bangers…
Fifth Harmony are back with their follow-up to Reflection and totally deliver a steady and well-balanced album.
7/27 showcases the girls in a more mature and sexy light with the songs touching on more raunchy subject matters with sensual lyrics, along with emotional life lessons.
That’s My Girl kickstarts the journey with high energy and jolts of sass with the always amazing saxophone! This is followed by the hit single (you have to be living under a rock to not have heard this one) Work From Home.
It also wouldn’t be a pop album without other famous urban stars making an appearance, with the album featuring Fetty Wap, Ty Dolla $ign and Missy Elliot!
While it’s not all dance anthems and sexy tracks, fans are also treated to some mellow and lovely little tracks like Write on Me, Dope, No Way and Scared of Happy.
The only fault with 7/27 is that at times the tracks build up steadily but then stutters once the chorus/breakdown arrives by falling into a generic array of beats, e.g. Squeeze and Gonna Get Better.
Overall Verdict: A fun and more mature sophomore album that comes with a few flaws.
Best Tracks: That’s My Girl, I Lied, The Life, All In My Head (Flex), Scared Of Happy, Not That Kinda Girl, Dope, No Way.
