Are you ready for some frenzied celebration on this Valentine’s Day? KYLE released his first album of his own right in time for Valentine’s Day. With his latest album “It’s Not So Bad” focused on relationships and love, KYLE has got us covered.
The album comprising of 11 tracks is an enjoyable listen packed with collaborations featuring the likes of Craig David, Ivory Scott, Dougie F and BEAM. When you listen to the energetic dance music, you’ll not get the chance to feel blue as every track is brimming with beats that are upbeat and rhythmic. There’s no room for slow tracks in this set of tracks. in the track “Unreplaceable,” KYLE sings, “How’d I let the best thing in my life just up and vanish?” This song is a testament to the way KYLE employs vulnerable lyrics, and hides them as uplifting and fun through the entire album.
“It’s Not So Bad” explores the subject of regret, breakups being in love, and the desire to pursue someone.
The cover is a visual treat when you first look at it. It’s visually pleasing to the eye and especially reflects the mood KYLE intends to convey. Anyone who is new to KYLE can look at the album’s cover and be aware that the album will be about love which enhances the ambiance that the record has.
The way the album is presented “It’s Not So Bad” across different platforms is an intriguing and distinctive option. In the case of Apple Music, the color of the eyes on the album’s cover is pink, which matches the logo of the company, while Spotify’s color is green. KYLE also altered the order of tracks on both platforms. Apple’s version begins with the track “Personal,” and Spotify’s starts at “Cmon.” This means that depending on which platform you’re using you may experience an experience that is different based on the order of the tracks.
The majority of songs blend together and, while it’s nice that they’re on the same topic but it’s hard to discern the different songs, and the album could become little boring due to the same pop-dance-inspired vibe. However, the soft rhythms and KYLE’s mellow honeyed, sweet voice set the perfect mood to lighten the dull month of February just to be in the midst of Valentine’s Day.
