Hey guys! Are you ready for another album review? Here’s a popular new one…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know about Sour, Olivia Rodrigo’s new album. The songs are very popular(too popular for my taste…) and some of them are pretty catchy.
What you might not know, is that supposedly, Rodrigo write most of these songs about Sabrina Carpenter’s boyfriend, Joshua Basset. Whelp, that caused people to side with Olivia Rodrigo, and hate Sabrina Carpenter.
I’ll let you guys guess what side I’m on. (hint, it starts with an Sa-, and ends in a -brina)
My main thing with this album, is that I really don’t like how much drama it’s caused! And it’s not really Olivia’s fault, but she’s not exactly helping the situation either. But oh well, I suppose everyone has freedom of speech.
Anyway, I’m going to go over these songs and try to stay somewhat objective…
(also, I listen to the clean version, but it is kind of annoying how many songs are explicit)
I like this one! I relate to it, plus it has a different sound. It’s kinda like pop rock in a way? I like it. I’ll give it a 4/5. I don’t just…love it, but it might be my favorite off the album?
Okay, so firstly, I definitely don’t like how this song kind of paints the picture that the guy is bad for moving on? And it also doesn’t put “the other woman” in a good light. And like, c’mon, no one did anything wrong here!
Anyway, about the song. It’s fine I guess, but not really anything special. 2/5.
3. driver’s license
This one is DEFINITELY a popular one. And it’s not without reason, it’s catchy! The production is great. I just don’t like how much drama this song put Sabrina Carpenter in the middle of…
4. 1 step forward, 3 steps back
This song is fine. It’s kind of repetitive though, and it’s not really one I particularly like. It also samples New Year’s Day by Taylor Swift, and I’m not sure if I like that. 2/5.
5. deja vu
This one’s nice. I like the beat of it, but then goodness is it overplayed! It’s a little annoying to me at this point. But oh well, maybe once the hype dies down it’ll be a nice song. 3/5.
6. good 4 you
Agh, my ears!
Sorry, it’s not really a bad song, it’s just it’s SO popular. I don’t like how it’s played everywhere, and tbh, there are better songs out there. 2/5.
7. enough for you
This one is kinda nice. I like how it’s stripped down. It sounds a lot like a Taylor Swift song though, but not in a good way if that makes sense? I’ll give it a 3/5.
This one talks about the “other woman” too! Goodness. At least it’s not in a bad way, but I know people will still take it the wrong way. It’s an okay song. 3/5.
9. jealousy, jealousy
I mean, it’s fine. I think it’s relatable for a lot of people. But like, what does some famous actress/singer have to be jealous of? According to Google, she has 4 million dollars and her career is just starting. Anyway, I guess the song gets a 2.5/5 from me.
10. favorite crime
This one is pretty calm. It’s nice I guess. Probably my second favorite off the album. 4/5.
11. hope ur ok
I don’t know, it’s fine I guess. I’m not a huge fan. 2/5.
So, that’s my feelings! I hope that wasn’t too boring. I feel like I feel very “meh” about this album. Anyways.
The overall score for me is about a 50/100. Not bad, but not necessarily good either.
What do you think of Sour?
