Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl

OKAYYYYY FINE

the singles were incredibly hit or miss for me; “hold the girl” has grown to be one of my favorite tracks of the year, and I also enjoy “phantom” and “hurricanes” quite a bit, but the other singles were either just okay or downright underwhelming (this hell). admittedly I was a bit pessimistic with my expectations for the album, as the singles were not as nearly as strong as they were for her first two projects. so I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to find out that this album was just a case of meh singles and great album tracks. The intro “minor feelings” was a great and gorgeous way to kick off the album, whilst other tracks like “holy” and “imagining” are straight up bangers. I still think the title track is my favorite song, but I can happily report back that rina hasn’t lost her touch. besides some of the lackluster singles (still looking at you “this hell”) this project is thankfully great.

i’ll probably update this with further thoughts as i revisit the album.

8/10
