Post Malone’s new album, “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, brings an exciting-new mix to the table, and reveals more about his lifestyle than ever before.
The album has been long awaited by fans and critics alike. With the teaser songs of “Wow.”, “Sunflower”, “Goodbyes”, and “Circles” sparking interest in what was to come next, Post Malone delivered. The new songs on the album bring back everything fans were craving to hear.
It’s obvious Post Malone incorporated a new vibe into this album. When listening to the songs, a higher focus in instrumental reinforcement and a classic OG feel makes every song a rock session. For example, “Take What You Want” proves Post can master any genre of music. By featuring Ozzy Obourne and Travis Scott together, fans get the collaboration we never knew we needed. A classic rock feel and sick guitar solo will have anyone jamming in the car.
“Staring At The Sun”, “Circles”, “Allergic”, and “Sunflower” takes the slower pace in just the right way to deliver a more classic pop vibe. Post Malone’s roots of inspiration flourished throughout the album.
Fans might also find themselves respecting Post’s new attitude. Through songs such as “Enemies”, “Saint-Tropez”, “I’m Gonna Be”, “Myself”, “Internet”, and “A Thousand Bad Times” Post seems to understand where he is in life. Instead of dwelling in past depressions, like the songs of “I Fall Apart” and “Stay” in previous albums, Post throws the sadness behind him and is now looking forward. Upon examining the lyrics, Post knows he can no longer deal with the drama in life. He knows he is talented at what he does, and he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks about him. It’s clear he had a fun time making this album, and he did it for himself.
When looking for songs to vibe to in the car with be sure to make “Enemies”, “Allergic”, “Circles”, “Take What You Want”, and “Staring At The Sun” the top five songs to add to any playlist.
What more can be said about this album? Besides the fact that it’s a 12/10, nothing much. Post Malone truly delivered with this new album, and he gave the fans what they were looking for. Name one bad song by Post Malone. Trick question, you can’t.
