Little Mix “Get Weird” Review

The ladies of Little Mix are getting weird—in a good way, of course.
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall are back at it, having released their third album, Get Weird, on November 6.
Their first single off of the album, “Black Magic,” offered a glimpse to what Little Mix had planned for their third album, and it’s generally the feel throughout. Many of the songs off of Get Weird are addictive, upbeat, dance anthems—a mixture between ‘80s and ‘90s pop songs.
The album is filled with empowering dance tunes such as “Grown” and “Hair.” The song is growing on me the more I listen to it, but when I first heard “Hair,” I thought it was a little off.
Their second single, “Love Me Like You,” offered up another sound. This song — one of my absolute favorites off of the album — is reminiscent of a ‘60s doo-wop tune. When I first heard it, I listened to it for about two hours straight, and I wasn’t growing sick of it.   
They slowed it down even more with “Love Me or Leave Me” and another one of my favorites off of the album “Secret Love Song, Pt. II.” The first version of “Secret Love Song” features Jason Derulo, but I prefer the second part because the piano and slow version of the song fits it better.
Completely different from the rest of the album, “The Beginning” and ”“The End” are powerful a cappella ballads that highlight the ladies impeccable harmonizing abilities. These girls are a talented bunch and these two songs let them all shine.
But other songs, like “Lightning” and “OMG” are a little weaker. “Lightning” sort of sounds like a song that would play at a club when you get to the chorus, but the lyrics are moody and kind of full of heartbreak, so it feels like a weird mixture. And I just can’t get behind “OMG.”
While I’ve enjoyed all of their other albums, I think Get Weird presents the best of what these women have to offer. They’ve found their sound, they’re killing their harmonies and they’re empowering women all over the world.
If you live in the UK, Ireland or Australia, you’ll be able to see them live next year. As for the rest of us, we’re going to have to patiently wait until we can jam out with Little Mix.
