Album Review

Before his debut LP was even released, Troye Sivan was a star. One of the most popular YouTubers from Australia, he began a very savvy — and millennial — rollout campaign for his first album, Blue Neighbourhood. Relying on his army of social media followers, he released a trio of heartbreaking videos and a preview EP (Wild) to test the waters. The response was positive, to say the least, with Taylor Swift and Sam Smith preaching the Gospel of Troye. That hype is warranted. Blue Neighbourhood builds off of the smooth, sultry vibe of Wild (the six songs from that EP are all included on the deluxe version of the album), creating a tight snapshot of Sivan's experiences with love, youth, and yearning. Despite his age — he turned 20 just six months before the album's release — his voice is sultry and effortless, wounded and breathless. This is polished pop for a post-Lorde world: the beats subtly throb and the production (Alex Hope, Allie X) is icy cool. While guest turns by pals across the Tasman Sea (New Zealand's Broods on "Ease") and a fellow countryman (rapper Allday on "for him.") add some zest to the album, the biggest collaboration is found on album centerpiece "Heaven," which features guest vocals by Betty Who and was written with Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Fun.) and Claire Boucher (known to most as Grimes). In the narrative of the album — written from his own perspective as a young gay man growing up in a sheltered Jewish community in Perth — it's the most poignant confession here: about his struggle to come out at the age of 14 and the potential fallout with family and faith. Similar simultaneous heartbreak and affirmation themes abound throughout Blue Neighbourhood, and it's a sparkling, triumphant experience. On album closer "Suburbia," Sivan paints a bittersweet picture that most listeners will be familiar with: mundane scenes from his childhood neighborhood, the same one that made him who he is, but ultimately the one that he'll leave for better things. Already at his young age he's grown too big for his surroundings. It's exciting to hear someone so young and confident on the cusp of greatness. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi

Troye Sivan is Awesome

His songs have such meaning and I want him to be on the top 100 for a world record.

Why was this re-released?

I love troye and especially this album, but I hate that this was re-released just to tack on the new "WILD". Plus, why we're all the song titles made lowecase? I love how original Troye was being when he made them all capital. "DKLA" spelt out as "Dkla" makes no sense, and I don't see why "for him." had to be changed to "For Him." And the XXYYXX Remix of "WILD" was completely deleted just so that the Alessia Cara-featured version of "WILD" could be put in. I love the new version of "WILD", but it should've remained a separate single. On another note, Troye's entire online music store was shut down just because of this rushed and unneeded re-release. The "Blue Neighbourhood Trilogy" videos still have incorrect names, also.

WHY DID YOU RE-RELEASE THIS?!

i am so angry. this was ORIGINALLY the deluxe version, released in december. a few weeks ago i bought 8 or 9 songs off that album, which meant i only needed to spend $2 for the rest of the songs. i just now got another itunes card and i couldnt wait to get the rest of the songs. but i couldnt find them. so i bought one of the songs off this album and went to my music. apparently they were different albums. (also, for the record, PLEASE stick to caps lock. so much better.) i searched "blue neighbourhood deluxe" in the itunes store, but no results were found. did you really have to do a stupid re-release and remove your deluxe version from the itunes store?! now i have to spend loads of money on the songs i didnt have and its going to be very stressful trying to figure out what songs are on the deluxe and what songs are on the re-release. now i can't complete my album because it says its already "fully downloaded". thats bs. you better put that album back on itunes if you actually want people to listen to your music.
