Reflector Reviews: “Eternal Sunshine”

 

Ariana Grande recently released her latest studio album, titled “eternal sunshine”. By taking on a completely different sound, Grande took over the charts. The day after its release, Spotify took to Instagram to share, “On Friday, March 8, Ariana Grande’s ‘eternal sunshine’ became Spotify’s most- streamed album in a single day in 2024 so far.”

After giving it a few listens, here is my tracklist ranking (subject to change):

  1. eternal sunshine
  2. we cant be friends (wait for your love)
  3. supernatural
  4. yes, and?
  5. the boy is mine
  6. i wish i hated you
  7. don’t wanna break up again
  8. ordinary things
  9. imperfect for you
  10. bye
  11. true story
  12. saturn returns (interlude)
  13. intro (end of the world)

Overall, it is an amazing album. I have always loved Grande’s music, but this album showed a whole new level of emotions and lots of growth in her sound.

I followed up with Nyema Smith, Freshman, who I spoke to about the release of ‘yes, and?’ to see what she thought about the album.

“I thought the album was really good. It brought a new style to her music but I still felt the old Ariana from her past albums, like ‘Yours Truly’ or ‘My Everything.’ It was still about a past love as some of her old songs are about, but with a different tune,” she said. If Smith had to choose her favorite song on the album it is “‘we can’t be friends (wait for your love).

Grande has so many amazing albums, filled with hit after hit. This album can’t compare to her classics from the past, but it’s pretty high up there. As far as favorite songs go, my favorite would be ‘eternal sunshine,’ which was the title track. I love the lyrics, the sound, and the emotions felt while listening.

“I definitely wouldn’t go as far as to say it was her best album. Her older albums were better in my opinion and will always have my heart. I also feel like the release of ‘yes, and?’ prepared everyone for the album! It gave some insight as to what was possibly going to be on the album,” Smith said.
