Billie Eilish emerged out of nowhere and her fame has skyrocketed in only a few short months. The 17-year-old has made millions of connections with the teens of the world through her musical talent.

The album everyone has been waiting for starts in a way that is true to Eilish’s personal style and her unique take on modern pop. There is a series of Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) worthy slurps and clicking sounds and Billie proceeds to blurt out, “I have taken out my Invisalign and this is the album.”

Throughout the album, there are many zany moments that highlight Eilish’s unique character and give us a gentle reminder that this is what a teenager who was thrown into stardom actually behaves like- and we’re all living for it.

Eilish’s album is solely based around her frequent night terrors and lucid dreams; henceforth some of these songs truly could trigger anyone into a night terror. Her style of music can only be described as a tribute to gothic punk with a mixture of Lana Del Rey’s soothing voice.

The third song on the album is one you will want to turn the volume down for because the bass alone will easily rupture your eardrum. “Xanny” is one song all adults who made foolish mistakes as adolescence must wish they heard when they were teenagers.

The song delves into the unpopular concept that you do not need to be intoxicated to have a fun and enjoyable time. Eilish has made quite the name for herself and has made it abundantly clear that she is not about that “party scene”. It’s the perfect song to listen to and reflect on your own choices; whether you’re currently a teenager facing peer pressure of popping that pill or you’re now an adult and you remember those days you wish you could change.

Eilish’s album is absolutely groundbreaking for most music as nowadays stick to predictable and rather boring musical type. The use of clever clips from “The Office” and expanding on the idea that being inebriated does not always mean you’ll have an amazing time truly is a testament to the good will and thought process of the world’s young teenagers.
