Hey, I had some free time. So, why not?
Music video for Made in the USA!
So Demi's new single from her self-titled (first name) album, Demi, is pretty amazing so as to start it off with this review. Maybe it's because Heart Attack didn't won me over as much as I thought it did? Don't get me wrong, Heart Attack was awesome, but there was tips and pointers that makes it fall short on my playlist, and even stopped me from bringing it over to my phone. Well, it's Demi Lovato anyway, so it's always going to be heart-stringing and vocal-oppression upwards straight diving into the chorus, so expect nothing less than that.
Now there's many things I like about Made in the USA, first and foremost the guitar pumping in the background. I love instrumentals, and to hear that discovery almost crystal clear is always great. Most pop tracks don't even bother with instrumentals, with beat-pounding fast-paced action spewing straight at your face and just tearing vocals apart like an insane raptor. The track, coupled with Demi's unforgettable vocal presence, just makes it an enjoyment. Also, not to forget, the lyrics as well. I hate cheesy lyrics, admittedly and past songs from her have made listening abject and not really true. She makes up for it with great progression here, right off the get-go.
Another thing I want to mention is the way the song gets over with it slowly. The song doesn't stumble apart from small little gestures Demi does with her voice, but overall is still pretty effectual.
Now for those who say Demi's not their cup of tea, I say give the song a few more listens and hopefully, it'll turn out okay.
No matter how far we go, I want the whole world to know
ORIGINALITY: 8/10 - This song is pretty great for a Demi track, and the bridge of the song instantly revitalizes.
SOUND: 8/10 - Guitars, powerful vocals and Demi's art of work. Is it at it's best? I guess you'll have to listen to find out.
LYRICS: 8/10 - Memorable, non-cheesy and amazing at some parts.
OVERALL: 24/30 - Made in the USA is your typical love song, offering more vibrant, gentle brushes that makes it equally soothing and amazing. Play it for days ladies and gentlemen.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
