Alice Merton - Mint
Jan 19, 2019

'Mint' is a decent debut album from Alice Merton, though a slight drop in quality from her debut EP, 'No Roots,' a year earlier. 'Mint' suffers a bit from cheap production and weak lyrics, especially in tracks like "Why so Serious" and "Honeymoon Heartbreak." The tracks tend to muddle together, which is a sharp contrast from her 'No Roots' EP where each track had a cohesive vibe, yet different production. That being said, there are definitely positive qualities on this album. Merton's vocals are strong. While she doesn't belt or sustain or even showcase an amazing range, she does have a knack for attitude. Each track has its own sassy power behind it that many artists wish they could obtain. Add onto that the fact that Merton's tone is unique and star-power ready and you've got one kick-ass attitude for this album. The energy on this album is spectacular, and while the album may not be amazing, it's still fun and a good listen with tons of repeat value.
