YouTuber and singer Troye Sivan just recently released his full-length album, Blue Neighbourhood. Following the release of his EP Wild, Blue Neighbourhood includes 10 new singles in addition to the tracks from Wild. I got the chance to listen to the album and here is my track-by-track review of Blue Neighbourhood.
The first six tracks off the album come straight from WILD. If you would like to hear my review of those songs you can click right HERE.
Lets get into the new music shall we?
"Talk Me Down"
This song is one of those songs that get you in touch with feelings you didn't know you had. The harmony along with Sivan's soft vocals was what made this song for me.
Sivan takes this song to a new level. As I listened it sounded like Troye was trying to tell the audience that he was just trying to be like everyone else and be cool. It wasn't one of my favorite songs out of the album but I can respect his direction of the song.
"Heaven" Ft. Betty Who
This song had hit me in such a particular way. In this sad song Sivan talks about his sexuality and wondering if he would ever be truly accepted. The vocals between him and Betty Who are just simply breath-taking
This track goes through so many layers for me. Beginning very smooth and then continues to get more intense. The drum beats along with vocals bring the song together.
This track was so cute. Sivan takes a simple concept about people being different and that is okay to not know where you're going or what you are doing.
"For Him" Ft. Allday
This is one of my favorite songs off the album. This isn't your typical love song, great lyrics, amazing sound and that verse by Allday is just golden.
Not sure what was going through Troye's head while he was writing. However this song has made me feel like Troye has been homesick while going through all of his music stuff.
After listening to this song, I felt like This took a turn for the album. The song has a slower vibe to it. This song in particular made me think of Sam Smith while listening to it.
"Blue" Ft. Alex Hope
I just have one word for this song and that is YES! The lyrics, the mood, the vocals between Troye and Alex. Just all of it was amazing!
"Wild" (XXYYXX Remix)
We end the album off with a bang with a remix of Sivan's single "Wild." The sing was certainly different and a good way to end the album.
Overall I was very pleased with Blue Neighbourhood. Troye's vocals have definitely advanced since he first started singing and I could definitely hear the difference.
