Glory Days: Album Review

Glory Days: Album Review

Olivia Moore, Managing Editor

Little Mix became the first girl group to win the UK X-Factor back in 2011, and now just five years later they are releasing their fourth studio album, Glory Days.

Consisting of twelve songs, the album features a collaboration with Charlie Puth, as well as three bonus songs and a live addition of the songs from their Get Weird tour with the deluxe version of the album. The album is vibrant with piano ballads and upbeat pop vocals with a mix of a retro style beat. With topics from breakups to makeups, this soundtrack covers what it’s like to go from being in love to being alone.

This is personally one of my favorite albums from Little Mix, and they didn’t fail to up one from their last three studio albums. Here are a few of my favorite song off the soundtrack:

Shout Out to My Ex – This song has me belching out the lyrics every time I hear it come on my playlist, and for someone who doesn’t have any relevant exes, this song makes me sing like I do.

“Shout out to my ex, you’re really quite the man
You made my heart break and that made me who I am
Here’s to my ex, hey, look at me now, well, I
I’m all the way up, I swear you’ll never bring me down”

Oops (feat. Charlie Puth) – If you’re like me and love a modern twist on retro music, then I suggest this song for you. This is the perfect rebound anthem with the addition of Charlie Puth’s vocals to bring everything together.

“Oops, my baby, you woke up in my bed
Oops, we broke up, we’re better off as friends
Now I accidentally need you, I don’t know what to do
Oops, baby, I love you”

Nothing Else Matters – If there was a song to jam to with the windows down and a carefree attitude, then this is the one. This song gives a motivational vibe and the feeling of a crowd of people singing along with you to share the same feeling of being empowered.

“And nothing else matters like us
And nothing else matters like love
You just gotta believe, if it leaves then it’s coming back round
And I don’t really care about nothing else”
