Little Mix's 'Glory Days' Album Review


"You make rain,But I'll make it, I'll make it, I'll make it shower" - Power


Little Mix are taking the world by storm at the moment, and rightly so! having released Shout Out To My Ex earlier this autumn, their album landed last Friday and boy is it a good'n! Having outsold One Direction with their last album Get Weird and having achieved more number ones than the famous boy band ever did, Little Mix really are proving that they were worthy winners of The X Factor back in 2011.




The expectation is, unsurprisingly, high for the girls to release hit after hit and Glory Days is full of absolute bops! From a slow acoustic of Touch to the undeniably catchy You Gotta Not there's something on this album for everyone.

Starting off the album is their lead single Shout Out To My Ex - their most in depth and personal hit to date, there's plenty of shade thrown towards a certain Malik's direction and quite frankly, I love it!

Next up are Touch, F. U. and Oops (ft.Charlie Puth). Touch is a club anthem - the first of the sort to come from the girls and is quickly followed up by the sassy F. U. which takes on a similar style to Love Me Like You, a sharp twist on the classic 50's style. Then the ever so catchy Oops hits, with a whistling tune and featuring Charlie Puth, was it ever going to be anything other than fab-u-lous?!

Potentially, my favourite three songs off the album are up next: You Gotta Not, Down&Dirty and Power. All are catchy, sassy and quite frankly wonderful. You Gotta Not unsurprisingly, has Meghan Trainor's name on the writing credits but I'm rather liking this writing colab of Little Mix and the All About That Bass singer. Down & Dirty is exactly what the title implies with an electronic sounding club tune to go with it. Possibly the most loved track by everyone off the album is Power and it's totally easy to see why. Starting with an engine and catchy tune the lyrics are blunt and powerful (just as the track name suggests)


Your Love whisks to straight off to a Caribbean Island, lying under the sun with a great song playing through your headphones.

Nobody Like You is potentially the more emotional sister to Shout Out To My Ex, slower and raw with exposed lyrics. No More Sad Songs is the kind of tune you're gonna love if recently you've been loving a bit of JB; it's  proudest moment is Perrie's vocals at the end of the track - utterly incredible!

Private Show and Nothing Else Matters are two very different sounding tracks. Private Show is a mighty tune with clear 00's influences whilst Nothing Else Matters is a track that steals the show right at the end of the album and it's got to be a sure runner for their arena tour next year!
