To be honest, I expected this to be a bit underwhelming. This ended up being kinda nice. It's a sweet album that features some nice harmonies, incredible vocals, and doesn't get too boring. I don't think every song on this is a classic but certainly every song is enjoyable and sweet. It's just so charming!

Favourite: (The Best Part of) Breaking Up, I Wonder, Be My Baby, You Baby, Baby I Love You
Least favourite: So Young, What'd I Say, How Does It Feel, When I Saw You
