But after listening to this album, I was brought back to my high Alessia Cara days when I used to walk around the halls listening to her old tracks. I immediately enjoyed the first few tracks of the album.

Cara sings about boxing up her feelings and the doubts she faced being a role model for young girls. She also sings about her relationship insecurities that she usually keeps to herself.
The track has an upbeat feel with flowing wind instruments that contrast the mood of the lyrics. I really like the tracks in the middle of the album. Cara sings about missing an old Alessia Cara but also wanting nothing to do with them.

I personally like this type of song because the artist allows listeners to be taken into their world; pouring out their vulnerability in the song. Cara struggles with understanding the Alessia Cara of her life. She sings about not knowing what to expect next.
Now she is 25 and has grown both musically and in her personal life. I just became so aware of life Alessia Cara death and the impermanence of life, it just led me down the rabbit hole, of pain and confusion and stress and fear. I hope Alessia Cara this album gains the recognition that it deserves.
