Camila Cabello - Camila (Debut Album & Singles Discussion)

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Hyrulian, Oct 14, 2016.

  1. Just realized why I like “Never be the same” verses. It sounds like “Goodbye Horses”. Someone’s watching “Silence Of The Lambs”?

    All the songs are inoffensive with Havana being the crown jewel. The short track list saves it.

    Not a fan of her personally but a cohesive debut this is.

  2. In The Dark is probably my third favorite now after Havana and Never Be The Same. It gives me No Doubt Rock Steady vibes.
     
  3. Just heard Never Be The Same on the radio while driving home from work. There’s no way it’ll be a Havana sized hit but I hope it finds some success.

  4. Has it been pointed out Consequences & Inside Out were put into Best Of The Week on iTunes' main page?

    Doesn't mean much now when the most streamed album tracks usually become the singles, but "hmm" if those are the ones they want to test public reception to.
     
  5. Consequences should definitely be the obligatory ballad single. Although we may get more than 1 of those from this album.
     
  6. “Inside Out” was teased as a follow up back when “Havana” and “OMG” were released, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they go with that. You can see it in this image:

    This album is so featherweight to the point of being its detriment. I should not be on track 6 of a 10-track album waiting for it to end. Consequences, Real Friends, and Something's Gotta Give all being as bare-bones as they are in a row was particularly draining.

    It's all just so airy and inessential and...not good, which I was kind of suspecting because I really like Never Be the Same but find it to be a little awkwardly produced, and Havana (and OMG) always seemed to be a weird one-off thing anyway. Shame that it actually came to fruition, but here's hoping they can quickly get this era out of the way and move onto her My Everything next.

  8. My least fave is definitely Into It. I know everyone loves a good sex bop, but the difference between that + Never Be The Same is how empty Into It feels. There's no passion or point. It's just fluffed air.

    The rest is all pretty good. She Loves Control is definitely overrated. Real Friends is a bit whiny. Never Be The Same, Inside Out, Consequences, & In The Dark are all pretty great.

    Also, the radio edit tacked on to the album does not exist to me. Into It is the closer.

  9. This album is really bloody dull. Into It is good but deserves a much bigger chorus. Madison Bear and Camila share a similar voice and the kind of songs they make are interchangeable but Camila lacks a serious edge in her songs. I’m unsure if that’s youth/naivety/inexperience or just her general personality. Also, justice for Crown. The album opener that never was.

    I honestly expected so much more. The lyrics are so cliche and asinine on Inside Out, In The Dark, Real Friends etc that it’s offputting. When the tracksare A’s sparse as these are it really puts focus on the lyrics and if this is Camila’s way of showing us what she has to say then I’d rather she’d have stayed quiet.

    The irony here is that if you took the best of the Fifth Harmony selftitled and the best of Camila’s self titled you’d get yourself one pretty incredible record. Shame.

  10. This is my takeaway from this album. If she came out with a typical pop record, it would have gotten lost because there are already quite a few female artists who fill that space (and do it well). By taking this route with her music, I think she definitely succeeded in standing out. Depends on whether you think she stands out in a good way or a bad way, but she made her point.

    I have only listened to the album twice so far and the one that made an impression on me was Something's Gotta Give. It's outstanding and I'm already looking forward to hearing her perform this live. I will have more thoughts on the album as I listen to it nonstop for the next few months.

    Agreed also on someone's comment about the order of the songs. I would swap Into It and Something's Gotta Give. It's only right that the album ends with a ballad.

  11. Is this getting a vinyl release? Does anyone have the CD?
     
  12. Never Be The Same is number 4 on global Spotify, Yas! Easily the best track here.

    Havana is number 1.

  14. I've got very controversial feelings about album. In my opinion this is a LP of one song - Havana, 'cause other aren't eye-opening or inspiring for me. Yeah, there are couple of songs there to be beloved after re-listening,but the first time this is pretty average. I guess Something's Gotta Give&Never Be the Same are not more worse than Havana.

  16. Never Be The Same has grown on me immensely. It's great, and it totally makes sense as a single.

  17. On my first listen.
     
  18. Her US Spotify numbers are pretty impressive...
    #4 Havana
    #6 Never Be The Same
    #34 Real Friends
    #44 In The Dark
    #74 Into It
    #77 She Loves Control
    #81 All These Years
    #107 Consequences
    #115 Inside Out
    #123 Something's Gotta Give

    While this is good, I do wonder if this is mostly down to payola. I’ve had the album pretty much on repeat as I’m a fan but I’ve had Spotify give me a notication twice letting me know this is out and to got listen to it... payola or not, these are great numbers and if helps with her SPS then keep it up Rodger lol (her manager).

  20. It's frustrating because I like her and she has potential so I'm not sure why this is the debut, her desire to write it all herself is to her detriment I think.

    I made a little Spotify playlist for everything I like all things Camila and it makes for a cute 11 track album.
