Album Review: Spectrum, Westlife

Westlife is back with their eagerly awaited and highly anticipated studio album Spectrum. The first album since the band reunited and they do not disappoint their fans.

The band reunited in 2018 and quickly announced a tour and album much to the delight of the hardcore fanbase they have.

Tickets for the tour sold out in minutes then they announced they were releasing an album and it was the icing on the cake.

Spectrum is Westlife 2.0, it’s been nine years since the band’s last album and it shows a more upbeat Westlife. The album has one ballad and the rest are mid to uptempo tracks, sure to get the fans up and dancing on their upcoming stadium tour next year.

Stand out tracks on the album are My Blood, an achingly beautiful and poignant ballad about the love between parents and their children, L.O.V.E, an uptempo bop that makes us want to dance and Another Life, which is a lovely track that easily could have found a home on one Shane Filan’s solo albums.

What’s nice about this album is all the lads get a share of the vocals something that didn’t happen in previous albums. If you like the old stool sitting ballad singing Westlife, then this album isn’t for you as there is very little of that, but if toe-tapping pop tracks are your thing then this is an album to add to your collection.
