This is a really good album from Willow, packed full of that pop rock angst that she does so well. The titles are a bit weird, but otherwise, it’s great. The only problem with it is it’s not as good as the last one, Lately I Feel Everything, which was outstanding. If that one didn’t exist, this would be fantastic, but as it is, it’s just living in the shadow of its predecessor. A shame but still totally listenable and great.

lately I feel EVERYTHING by WILLOW

This surprised me: it’s a short, sharp burst of angry pop and I loved it! There are particularly highlights, the first song and the one where Avril Lavigne pops up stand out but the rest of it doesn’t pale in comparison, it holds its own. What’s weird is I think I only know Willow from whipping her hair back and forth, so this was a whole new sound and her voice has matured greatly. Loved it.
