Emma really hit this one out of the park. While I never really listened to her music from all but one song in the past, I wasn't sure about whether or not to listen. Alas, I did.

The album opens up with 'Villains Pt. 1,' a dark, but the overall very good track, and serves as a great opener to the rest of the album's messages and content, despite being darker than the rest of the songs in tone.

Villains starts with a bang with Villains Pt. 1, a set up for the theme of revenge and pettiness, this sets in motion the whole album.

My least favorite song would be Take Me Out which sounds a bit generic pop, but still very catchy and enjoyable.
