The Love Goes album has been a long time coming and now that we have it, we can’t stop listening!
Brilliant As Always
Okay, so we would first like to mention that it was hard to pick our favorites from the Love Goes album. It’s like picking a favorite child. Nevertheless, we listened to this wonderful album and came up with the seven tracks that make the album so wonderful. They’re not ranked, but only set in alphabetical order:
‘Another one’ is about realizing that the person you were with wasn’t for you and now they found someone else. Also about being happy for them and hoping they treat their new s.o. better. It’s a sad track with a faster beat but it just fits so well. This track shows off their new brilliant sound and helps set up the rest of the album.
“While you were busy breaking hearts, I was busy breaking” is so simple but so good. It is really about giving your all to someone and them not giving the same. Which is something we think a lot of people can relate to. It also gives off the sound we expect from them. Which is a good thing.
‘Diamonds’ is like the others in its lyrics but has a more upbeat sound to it. It’s the “I am a bad bitch and over you” track. You should probably listen to this track after the sadder ballads. It can give you the empowerment that you deserve.
It’s a twist on the ‘You can’t love someone else without loving yourself first.’ They sing about letting that person go and regretting it, regretting what they didn’t do or the bad things they did do. It’s honestly one of the sadder ones on the album. This track and ‘Breaking Hearts’ are like opposites but can probably be seen as different stages of a breakup. The piano and violin accompaniment fits the feeling of the track.
For The Lover That I Lost
You may have heard ‘For The Lover That I Lost’ before by Celine Dion. They both have writing credits for the track. So now we’re waiting for a duet. It also does remind us of some of their older tracks, such as ‘I’m Not The Only One’. It is a nice piano ballad that helps show out their vocals.
The chorus is probably the best part and just the lyrics, in general, will be stuck with us for a while. Who doesn’t want to be a kid again, when you experienced your best memories for the first time. The electric guitar that matches what they’re doing with their vocals, was also a standout in the track.
Love Goes (Feat. Labrinth)
There are not enough words to describe the track, it’s just so good! The piano backtrack makes the song so good and pulls everything together. It gives the ‘love goes’ vibrato parts, so much more depth, and helps bring out Sam and Labrinth’s already amazing vocals. The track also doesn’t stay at the same speed, it eventually hits the accelerando part as it crescendo’s and they add the vocal adlib, it makes the track an immediate stand out.
Though we only covered 7 tracks, in total the album is as good as it gets. It is something everyone should check out. It shows off their amazing vocals and writing abilities. You can stream the album here.
