It's not so much that Wonder feels stiff or stuffy, as if Mendes were writing songs for an older version of himself. Rather, Mendes attempts a variety of styles and sounds while also expanding his emotional range.

Overall, the record is ambitious as it aims to explore genres, stories and showcase Mendes artistic evolution all at once. It doesn’t always succeed, at times feeling too shallow for it to be as impactful as Mendes intended it to be. But when it succeeds, there’s no flaw to be picked out and for that it’s worth a listen.

Throughout this record, Mendes’s savvy songwriting team are harking back to retro influences to suit the vintage ice cream parlour shades of the singer's shirts.

And even don't get me started on Senorita, I had a month-long camp in Australia, and Senorita played in the aux every night in campfires.
