Vampire – 4/10: She sounds very childish in this song. The style of the song sounds like a middle schooler wrote it or like Kidz Bop. I don’t like it.

Logical – 1/10: I was listening to this song and didn’t even realize I was listening to anything because of how boring it was. She could make it less boring by adding ear catching instrumentals.

Making the bed – 4/10: Making the bed is a slow song, not good or bad, but I wouldn’t listen to it in my free time; it sounds like Taylor Swift’s new style of music which I personally don’t like.

Ballad of a homeschooled girl – 6/10: The guitar in the song is good and the music is similar to bands like Daisy and the Scouts. This is one of the better songs in this album because it’s less childish. The end of the song is also good because as the chorus ends, instrumentals start to play.

Teenage dream – 8.5/10: There’s a slow start to the song, and it’s not too bad. The instrumental behind the rising vocals in the chorus is good. I like it and it’s my favorite song on the album.

All-American b*- 6/10: Although the guitar solo during the chorus was good, the lyrics were corny. She has potential for rock music and compared to the other songs, this song has the introduction.

Pretty isn’t pretty – 7/10: Finally, a song that isn’t about teenage boys. I like the lyrics on this one and the style of music isn’t too bad, but it could be better.

Bad idea, right? – 5/10: The instrumentals in the song are good and catchy, and the buildup to the chorus is good. Although, I feel like her lyrics are childish and I don’t like the flute solo that much. Her songs all sound kind of childish for me because I’m not a fan of her voice.

The grudge – 5/10: This song was alright, nothing truly remarkable but not too bad either. The instrumentals were pretty good but again, since I don’t like her voice.

Get him back! – 3/10: I wish Lana del Rey were given this song because she’d put such a beautiful instrumental with it but the chorus on this song sounds like Kidz Bop.

Love is embarrassing – 4/10: I could tell by the title that the song would be cringey. I don’t like it whatsoever. I think that she views relationships in an immature way which is why her songs sound like a middle schooler wrote and sang them.

Lacy – 0/10: I don’t like this song at all. The lyrics are repetitive and not in a good way. Once you get halfway through the song, you’ll be annoyed by the way she sings as well. The words sound slurred and I wouldn’t listen to it unless I was forced to.
