MUSIC REVIEW MONDAYS WITH ISAIAH PACK
This time of the year is actually pretty scarce for new music. And every time of the year is scarce for new, clean music 😬 but I was able to find four brand new fresh tracks that came out this last week, so I hope you enjoy them:
Kids by OneRepublic
OneRepublic has always been one of my favorite bands, and I'm really excited for their upcoming new album. Usually though, when they first release a song, I don't like it, but then it grows on me (this has been the case with "Counting Stars," "Wherever I Go," "Love Runs Out," etc.) My very favorite OneRepublic songs are the really old emotional ones though, and while this song is no "Stop and Stare" or "Secrets," it does have a lot of hints at those songs, but with a new twist. But it's no "Wherever I Go" either. It's not a super catchy song that's gonna get a ton of airplay. It could use a lot more melody. But the production and the acoustic guitar are great, and if it doesn't get you when Ryan Tedder says the word "kids," I guess this song really isn't for you. The chorus is 👌 My favorite line of the whole song, though, is: "I refuse to look back thinking days were better just because they're younger days." I tend to do that a lot, and I think a lot of people do. We think that the good old days always trump the times that we're living right now, and we miss out on the now instead of focusing on making the present the greatest it can be. Today is all we'll ever have! So we better make it amazing😄 but that's a big reason why I love this song. 8/10
Workin by Jamesthemormon feat. David Archuleta
I really wanted to review this one last Monday, but it ended up coming out like an hour after my reviews. Once again, this is no worldwide hit, but locally (in Utah) it's pretty big. Of course we all know David Archuleta, but if you haven't heard of Jamesthemormon, you should check out some of his stuff. He's one of my new favorite artists. He's an LDS rapper from Provo, and he's very clean and even gospel-oriented. His new EP is called "PMG," and that's where this song comes from. I'm actually going to his free concert in Provo this Saturday night, which I'm really excited about, but if any of you guys wanna come, just lmk. As for this song though, it's really not all that. James hyped it up a lot leading up to its release, and I was really looking forward to the David Archuleta collab. But there's really just not a lot to it. It lacks melody and it's very repetitive. It's really cool that the song is talking about missionary work. The production is really cool, but it lacks substance, to me at least. Jtm has done better. Make sure and check out some of his other songs like "Motivation," "Treasure," and "Restoration." As for this one though, I'm giving it a 5/10.
Bang Bang by Green Day
It's been awhile since Green Day has put out some new stuff. Rock music isn't really in the spotlight right now either. But you gotta respect a band that sticks to their style throughout the years. Because this is a classic Green Day song. It's pretty interesting as a song too; it's written from the point of view of a mass shooter. It's a very political song, and although Green Day (and pretty much all artists) are very liberal, it's a thought-provoking song. And it's at least good that artists are trying to make a difference through the messages of their music. But it's also a very well done rock song, which is really rare in 2016. Bon Jovi also came out with a comeback single this last week called "This House is Not For Sale," so you guys should check that one out too. But I'll give "Bang Bang" a 7/10.
Never Got Away by Colbie Caillat
It rhymes! Colbie Caillat, her name makes me laugh, lol. And that she has a song called "Bubbly." Like fr? She also recently put out a new single called "Goldmine," which is pretty good. But this one's kinda eh. The guitar sounds good, and it's pretty emotional, especially on the chorus. Maybe it's just that I'm not a huge fan of slow songs, I don't know. Maybe I'm just looking for some extra substance all the time. I like "Goldmine" a lot. But "Never Got Away" is a 5/10.
Let me know what you guys think! Have a good soundtrack this week.

MUSIC REVIEW MONDAYS WITH ISAIAH PACK
Alright guys. So imma apologize in advance today, my choice was to either keep it clean or keep it fresh. And I know I promised to keep it fresh, but I gotta keep it clean. It's kind of ridiculous how hard it is to find appropriate songs. Britney Spears recently came out with that smash hit "Make Me..." featuring G-Eazy, and I was gonna review it because it's listed as not explicit, but Britney says shiz (not shiz though) in the first verse and nobody bats an eye. Then there was this other track called "You & Me" (featuring G-Eazy as well) by Marc E. Bassy and Eazy drops the F bomb in the rap verse, but it's not even listed as explicit! Like what the F! Lol jk 😂 all I'm saying is that most of these songs aren't very fresh, and I'm sorry about that. But they're still good songs.
The Ocean by Mike Perry & Shy Martin
I really like this one, and maybe it's just cause I love the ocean and songs about it, but it invokes a lot of feeling in me, like a lot of electronic music does. But it came out in April, so I'm sorry. The verse is alright, it could have more melody, but the voice is spot on. I'm not sure who this lady is, but she has a great voice. And then there's the chorus; that's pretty amazing. The engineering in the background along with that riff; and the female voice crying "ocean," oh man, it's the greatest. I feel like there's a lot of feeling in the song, but it is a little bit shallow (no pun intended 😄). It's a 7/10 for me.
Boys That Sing by Viola Beach
As much as I love the last song, I probably like this one even better. And again, it does have that dreamy feeling to it. Viola Beach is a band that was actually all killed in a car accident a few months ago at the peak of their career, so they are no longer here, but they did leave us an album. I first heard this song when Coldplay covered it at Glastonbury in June, and the Viola Beach version is (obviously) even better. "Boys That Sing" did come out earlier this year, but their one and only album was just released last week. It's pretty good, besides the fact that every song sounds very similar. Make sure to at least check out "Swings and Waterslides" and "Like A Fool." As for this one, the drum beat is great stuff, and I love the singer's voice. I especially love the line, "and she told me she loves a boy who knows how to sing, so I learned how to sing." 👍 8/10.
Let Me Love You by DJ Snake & Justin Bieber
This week has been scarce for new music, but the one album that was released was DJ Snake's debut. I haven't listened to it, but it does include hits such as "Middle" and "Talk." JB has been everywhere lately! I'm still waiting for another "Purpose" single. But here he is again, right after the release of "Cold Water." This song is done pretty well, but it is really cliché for DJ Snake. This is what his normal song sounds like. I like Bieber's voice though. The one thing he says that isn't the best is "it's been a heck of a ride" (except he doesn't say heck), but it's good besides that. It's an alright, catchy pop song. 7/10.
No Money by Galantis
This electronic duo isn't very big in the States yet, but they are pretty good. This song is really catchy. The engineering on it is really good. It's an interesting subject matter too. The best part is when she goes high on "time" in the chorus. It's a well done song, just a little repetitive and there's not a whole lot to it. 6/10.
Let me know what you guys think in the comments! Thanks for listening, and catch you next week!✌️

Not sure why Spider-Man 3 is last, I liked that one. I'd rank the original one last, even though it's classic, the effects aren't up to par

MUSIC REVIEW MONDAYS WITH ISAIAH PACK
Sorry I'm a little late putting this out this week, but I hope you enjoy it!
Still Falling For You by Ellie Goulding
Apparently this song is from some rated-R movie called "Bridget Jones Baby." I don't know anything about it, and I honestly don't care to. But the song really reminds me of "Love Me Like You Do." Not only is it also from a rated-R movie 😛, it's the same emotion in the song. That "this moment means everything" romantic feeling is in both songs. And obviously this song isn't gonna be the hit that "Love Me Like You Do" was, but it's still good. It does a good job building up with the keyboard chords, and the chorus sounds good, but it lacks explosiveness at the end. It's alright. 5/10.
Do You Wanna Come Over? by Britney Spears
This is a song off of Britney's upcoming album, "Glory," which has already leaked actually, but I'm pretty sure it comes out in the next couple of weeks. Three other songs have already been released off of the album (most notably the G-Eazy collab "Make Me..."), but I haven't reviewed any of them for content reasons. And this song isn't much better content wise honestly. But I think it sounds pretty cool. The guitar sounds really good with the beat, and Britney's sassy "do you wanna come over?" adds a lot. I'll give it a 7/10.
A Head Full of Dreams by Coldplay
It feels a little silly to me to put this song on here, because I've been listening to it since the album came out last December. But it was just released as a single this last week, and many of you may have not heard it, so I'll review it. When it first came out, it honestly wasn't my favorite on Coldplay's album. It sounded really foreign and weird to me for some reason. But it's grown on me. I'm also really excited to hear it live when I go see Coldplay next week! The production really sticks out to me; it sounds cool. The best part of the song has to be the bridge. The voices sound very "dreamy." The Jonny Buckland guitar on the chorus also sounds very U2-esque. I'll admit that I'm pretty biased, because this is my favorite band. But imma say 8/10.
Mercy by Shawn Mendes
If I haven't ever made it clear on these reviews, I DO NOT like Shawn Mendes. His music is lame. His voice is annoying. "Stitches" by now would literally be a 2/10. And don't even mention "Treat You Better." Honestly, "Mercy" isn't the worst of it. It's kinda relatable. But it's still lame sauce. Shawn, you needa be more self-reliant, and get away from whatever lady this song is about. How about you have some mercy on us and our ears? Make something decent, how about it? 3/10.
What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments, and don't forget to vote! Have a great week.

MUSIC REVIEW MONDAYS WITH ISAIAH PACK
Can you believe it's August 1st? Dang! Summer's ending 😭😭😭 but this summer has been lit! Especially music-wise. So let's get started:
Brand New by Ben Rector
Not really that brand new anymore, but it's a pretty good song. The "oh-oh-ohs" are a little repetitive, but I like the producing on the piano chords a lot. It sounds a little Christian to me tbh, even though it has nothing to do with that subject, idk. 😕 but yeah, it's a decent song. We'll go 6/10.
We All Bleed the Same by Alex Boye
Alright, I know this isn't a worldwide hit or anything. It's not even on the radio. But it's real fresh, and we live in Utah, so imma review it. The production is cool, it's kinda catchy, and I love Boye's voice. But the main thing I like about it is that it's got a message behind it. Too many artists nowadays (including me, lol) just put out nonsense with nothing behind it. We needa get back to music with the message. What I don't love about it is that it's really repetitive and cheesy. And it's pretty Christian too 😬 which I know I should have problems with that. But I'm giving it a 5/10.
Closer by The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey
The lyrics on this one are questionable. I was debating whether or not to review it, but I decided to because the lyrics are weird enough. Plus it's way fresh, and I like it a lot. I think this is the third big single that this electronic duo has put out in 2016, and they've done great on all three. Starting out with "Roses," then topping it with the smash hit "Don't Let Me Down;" I think this next one has radio potential too. EDM is one of my favorite genres, but I especially like how simple this one is. Also, for me at least, I think electronic music can convey emotions that no other music can. But yeah. Production is 10/10 on this. The voices sound pretty great too. It is kinda questionable content-wise, but content doesn't affect my rating. 8/10.
In the Name of Love by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha
Another EDM track here, but it feels like there's a lot less to it. The vocals are great. There's nothing really unique to it, though. The drop sounds good. But it's really cliche, and even that part sounds a little lacking to me. Idk. It's alright. But it's just kinda eh. 4/10
What do you guys think? Make the most of the end of summer! Thanks for reading, and I hope your playlists stay fire! See you guys✌️
