Willow’s transition into pop-punk isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty solid and has some really enjoyable moments.
Willow was not an artist that was really on my radar, but I heard the single “t r a s p a r e n t s o u l” with Travis Barker earlier this year and was really impressed. I thought it was a great pop-punk track with a great instrumental and catchy refrain. I thought Willow’s vocals were the weakest part, but it didn’t really take away from the enjoyability of the track. So with a full album here, and with an Avril Lavigne and Tierra Whack feature (YAY!), I was excited to see what she would bring here. And while it isn’t amazing, it is pretty solid overall. The production is solid for this sound, and the songwriting is too. I see a lot of potential in this, and I think with some improvements she has the potential to drop a great record in this lane.
