Little Mix: “Confetti”

Little Mix:

Skylar Beckford, Reporter

As Little Mix celebrated nine years together, they released their sixth studio album titled “Confetti” in November. As the group has grown, so has their music. Following in the footsteps of the previous album, the group’s sound has matured. However, the album stays true to its roots, and still has elements of fun bedroom pop.

Compared to their other albums, like “Get Weird” and “Glory Days,” I have to admit that this one definitely lacks something the others have. The pattern of each song felt a bit recycled, and for some people the predictability is fine, but I personally don’t enjoy it. Out of all pieces on the album, my heart definitely belongs to the ballad, “My Love Won’t Let You Down.” The harmonies in the piece are beautiful, and the lyrics are perfectly comforting in a time like this. It really shows the chemistry among the members, and their voices compliment each other’s perfectly. Another notable song is, “Sweet Melodies.” It was one of the first singles released from the album and one of my favorites.

Overall, the album is enjoyable, but if their goal was to play it safe with this album, then I think they did just that. I don’t think it was meant to be too experimental or wild. However, I am more likely to recommend another album of theirs, such as “Get Weird,” which happens to be one of my favorite albums of all time. Out of 5 stars, Little Mix’s “Confetti” earns a 3.5
