Wallows’ New Album Review

A few days ago, my favorite band, Wallows, released a new album. It’s called Tell Me That It’s Over, and has ten songs in it. I even got the vinyl! Today I’ll be sharing my opinions about all the songs.
Hard to Believe: I love the beginning of Hard to Believe. It’s very trippy, and I feel like it’s the type of song I could just zone out to.

I Don’t Want to Talk: This song is by far the most popular of the album with more than 10 million plays on Spotify. But honestly it’s not my favorite. Maybe because Wallows released it as a single about a year ago and I’ve already heard it a lot? But don’t get me wrong, it’s still a very good song with a cheerful beat and catchy lyrics.

Especially You: This song was also released as a single before the album but I like it more than I Don’t Want to Talk. I would say that it is more of a pop song than Wallows’ genre of alternative that I just looked up.

At the End of the Day: This song is my favorite out of the whole album. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s my favorite because I relate to it so much. I’m proud to say that I learned most of the lyrics by heart the day the album was released. Is that bad?

Marvelous: Wallows performed this song on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. I stayed up so I could watch it. I didn’t think that they’d perform Marvelous of all songs because it’s not the most popular one, but I’m not complaining because it’s still really good.

Permanent Price and Missing Out: I’m just putting these together because I don’t have too much to say about them. Definitely not because I’m lazy. To me, they’re the songs in the middle of the album that just exist. I still like them though! They both start out slow, but in the middle they get louder.

Hurts Me: This song starts out with a very different feel than some of the songs leading up to it. When I first heard it I wasn’t sure if I was still listening to Wallows or not. Still, I really like the chorus. There’s two voices that sing interchangeably and I think it’s really neat.

That’s What I Get: I love this song so much, and I’m a little angry about how it’s the least-listened to song on the album? Why?! It’s so good! I could listen to this on repeat. The chorus is amazing and the beat is so catchy.

Guitar Romantic Search Adventure: Quite the title for the last song on the album. It’s also got that spaced-out feel to it. But let’s focus on the title. It’s like Dylan Minnette picked out four words randomly and was like “yep, let’s write a song about this!” And don’t “search” and “adventure” pretty much have similar meanings?

Thanks for reading my take on Wallows’ new album, Tell Me That it’s Over! I hope you aren’t offended by a potentially radical opinion I put in this column.

Here’s the link to their album (on Spotify, if you don’t use Spotify then good luck) if you thought this was interesting! Wallows is a really good band and if you need a new thing to listen to I’d definitely recommend them! https://open.spotify.com/album/5L6fAzbz2x5oF8l0qluSKm?si=vmDXAqbmRNqGIh2uCppb9w
