Everything about this album is perfect. Halsey is a true artist. No song on this album sounds the same. The lyrics are poetry, really. I love every single song on this album and I’m super proud of her. I listen to it multiple times a day. It’s a favorite.
Nobody can compare to Halsey’s lyrics. This album is the most heartfelt, honest album I have ever heard. We get to see a lot of Halsey here. We see her insecurities, her vices, and her honest truth. It is so refreshing to hear more introspective music when it feels like every artist (with notable exceptions) just wants to make a radio hit (which is awesome and has its place). The overall sound of the album changes a lot. From pop to country, rock to alternative, the sonic nature of the album leaves you on the edge of your seat. It maintains the same narrative function that Halsey’s other albums have had. It is an amazing album full of songs to play when you just need to feel like someone else gets what you’re going through.
I gotta agree with a lot of reviews...these songs just feel generic. There are a few songs that are enjoyable but the other songs sound the same & there’s no passion. Idk. Maybe pop is just getting too bland these days. I think foreign music is just so good that domestic artists just don’t have the appeal anymore.
honestly, this album is just mind blowing. like i don’t have any words. she just left me speechless. her opening up about her personal struggles and learning from her mistakes is just.....so awe-inspiring. and boy!! this album was a straight up ROLLERCOASTER. i was feeling all the feelings!! one song, i felt warm and happy, and the next one, i felt sad and the need to bawl my eyes out. “more” got me the hardest, not gonna lie. anyways, i love this album. she has not disappointed me.
This album really feels like Ashley is ripping herself open and showing her vulnerability. The songs are beautiful, and feel very much like her. She has amazing talent, and this album shows just how human she is.
After turning out two tumblr-esque fake-deep albums, she’s finally grown into herself as an artist. Great and interesting production and a good few genre-bending songs (Country influences on “You should be sad,” pop-punk on “3am), plus great lyrics that aren’t afraid to get actually deep. This is her most personal and authentic body of work to date.
Except the singles rest of the album is not really good Lyrically they have meanings and good But they really doesn’t sound like Halsey at all I am wondering if this album is really made for maniacs ? Thank you, Next
While it isn’t her best album, it does have some very good songs that I would repeat lots of times. “You Should Be Sad” and “3AM” are my favorites. The downers are: forever is a long time, Suga’s Interlude, Still Learning. Overall, it’s a decent album. Score: 3.5/5
Hasley is amazing I loved the song Suga’s interlude but how come every collaboration in this album has the artist name then interlude can’t you be a bit more creative. People are saying Suga’s interlude is bad but I love it make more collaborations with BTS and the members . This album started off good I love without me and graveyard but the interlude’s are kinda weird (not including Suga’s interlude) but hey every album has a song somebody won’t like so I’m not complaining.
I can’t even begin with this album. When I saw January 17, I thought, “Yes, music to get me through the year.” I doubt this will be it. Titles that are mixed from capital to lowercase to full capitals make me mad. Can’t you just have one thing? Also, the amount of interludes. It being with other people makes me mad. With hopeless fountain kingdom, she had other people, but not overtaking the song. I have a strong feeling that this is what all of the interludes are going to be, considering the artist’s name in the title. Also, I dislike BTS and SUGA, so I will definitely remove that song from the album. And Finally // beautiful stranger is not alternative to me. clementine is cool enough. However, Without Me and Graveyard I am in love with. I also wish Nightmare was on the album. I am very disappointed. hopeless fountain kingdom and BADLANDS were both amazing pieces of art, and this isn’t it. I think it cool that Halsey is changing, or rebranding herself. However, rebrands don’t always work well. For example, BANKS rebranded when she released III, and I think it ended up working well. I don’t think it’s going to be the same with Halsey’s Manic. I hope Manic can revive itself with the yet unreleased tracks. Since I am on Spotify for the most part, I can always make a playlist and delete the songs I dislike. The thing is, I shouldn’t have to do that with a Halsey album. I guess I’ll stick with the previous two albums. I guess the good thing is that those albums will never age. I have a serious problem with Manic, and I didn’t think I would. In short, I think this album is a mess.
imma be completely honest, this album was a mess. the songs were all over the place and it was weird. but, the songs were AMAZING. and when you read the description for the album and you know what it’s about, you understand why the album is all over the place. production wise, this album is 10/5. the production was AMAZING. overall, I think this is a great album, and if you want, you could give it a listen.
All her hit singles are the same, we get it some dude cheated on you we’ve heard this all before. Sorry to say maybe just maybe if you didnt act like a ho you wouldn’t get played like one. Cant wait for your next big single and how you’re going to cry about how much better you are after G Easy played you. You’re played out
of course, i had heard halseys hits(without me, closer, bad at love) and loved them, but once i heard you should be sad i decided to listen more. turns out, she’s awesome! some of my favs from this album are you should be sad, I HATE EVERYBODY, 3am, and a bunch more. each an every song has a beautiful meaning and the songwriting is great. go halsey.
“929” is the best song on this album! It’s different but amazing! If I’m being honest it took me a few times to actually appreciate each song, but she is so real and passionate in this album. Honestly it’s incredible! I’m obsessed.
