The album represents girl power, which is why there are only woman featured on this album.
First of all I must say; how awesome do the book and CD look?
The Super Deluxe Edition of LM5 contains: 1 CD, a 28 page hardcover book and lyric cards.
My first impression on each song:
1. The National Manthem
A beautiful intro where the girls show off their harmonies.
2. Woman Like me
This song was released a while ago and became #1. It has a reggae fusion to it which you will hear on more tracks. One of my favorites!
3. Think About Us
A great followup for the song Woman Like Me. You stay in that reggae vibe, which I love.
This song is SO powerful. It’s full of self love and all about being proud of who you are!
“Take off all my make-up ’cause I love what’s under it.
Finally love me naked, sexiest when I’m confident.”
5. Monster In Me
In this song things get slowed down a little bit. It feels like the girls poured out their hearts in this one.
6. Joan Of Arc
Yet another powerful song that represents self love. Halfway through the song the girls threw in some harmonies, that’ll give you goosebumps!
7. Love A Girl Right
Much of this song is sang together, with very few solos. A fun song to listen to with a clearly present bass.
8. American Boy
Ohhhh I loveeee the vibe to this song! It is quite laidback and also plays with that reggae fusion. A great song to sing along to.
9. Told You So
A slower acoustic song in-between all the dance bops. The chorus is beautifully sung together, how I think they sound the strongest. Also, each of the girls has a solo during the verses, while hearing soft lalala’s and nanana’s on the background. A very sweet song.
Another uptempo badass song, with a strong bass to it. The girls sound very mature in this one. The lyrics is also fun to listen to.
11.More Than Words
This song suits the album very well, even though it sounds quite different from the rest. It’s a true musical journey.
The title suits the song perfectly, because this song makes me want to dance so bad! I love the variety between the softer parts when the girls sing a solo and the powerful choruses.
The way this song is built up is great! At the beginning you barely hear any instruments, until the guitar and pumping beat kick in. Also beautiful ad lips can be heard throughout the song.
14. The Cure
I’m in love with this song. The lyrics are so inspirational. The girls sing about how they once were broken/ insecure/ unhappy, but they found the cure to happiness. A beautiful message.
15. Forget you not
This song has a little Spanish vibe to it, with all the handclaps in it. Overall it sounds like a happy song, but when you listen closer it’s actually a song about heartbreak.
16. Womans World
Be prepared to cry… This song is so beautiful.
17. The Cure
For this album the girls also made an a capella version of The Cure. I absolutely LOVE to listen to their voices without distraction from instruments. This is where their vocal talents shine through.
18. Only You
This song has been released for a while now. I must honestly say that I had my doubts about the girls making electronic dance music, but they did great. I love this song.
At last, a message from the girls:
What do you think of Little Mix their new album?
