The Maine just recently released their new studio album Lovely Little Lonely, its their 6th Studio album after American Candy. I started listening to this band during the Forever Halloween era (yeah, better late than never), I started listening to their albums and fell in love with their music. I love how deep and honest their music is and the connection between me and their music is there and that’s why I love them.
American Candy was a great album, I love every song in that album and its one of my all time favorite albums ever released, So I have hopes with this new album but we all know that The Maine never disappoints. This band is so consistent when creating their music, they never created a bad one or changes their music to fit in on the mainstream music. One thing I also love about them is they make sure they give what their fans deserve which is great music.
Lovely Little Lonely expresses subtle differences from American Candy, the album outlines the highs and lows of youth and the transition into adulthood. The album makes sure to represent the feelings that we are unsure of many things in life. This album highlights both the uncertainties and the things we are sure of as we progress in life. Its Nostalgic, Sad and happy all the same time.
I love all the songs but my favorite songs so far are:
Lovely + Black Butterflies and Deja Vu
The transition from Lovely to Black Butterflies and Deja Vu was pure eargasm, I freaking love it! It’s the first song that immediately got my attention.
This song gives me the vibe of 24 Floors from American Candy, it has a nostalgic feeling that you will relate to. The song tells the story of two people contemplating life and the hardships comes with it. They find comfort in each other to keep going through the toughest of times.
The Sound of Reverie
“Don’t blink because you will
And when you open up your eyes again
You may not recognize a friend”
This line got stuck in my head after listening to it. Also this line of the song reminds us that things change in an instant, in just a blink of an eye and nothing can be taken for granted.
Lost in Nostalgia
This song is a short but sweet track featuring soft vocals of John and calming instruments. ” Don’t you get lost in nostalgia, no” Yes, Dont get lost in nostalgia while listening to the album.
There are more great songs in the album but these are my personal favorites. The album is very solid and worth listening. Once you listen to it you’ll crave more and you’ll wish they added more tracks to it, that’s how good the album is. I also love that it is still has the vibe that is easily recognizable as The Maine, Definitely going to be one of my favorite albums this year.
If you havent listen to it, you better check it now. You wont regret it I swear.
