One of my first posts on this blog was about the song “American Candy” by The Maine (said post was sufficiently titled American Candy). Ever since I found that song I’ve been wanting to listen to more of that band, and recently I finally did!
I thought it was appropriate that I would listen to the album American Candy first, since the first song of theirs I had heard was off that album. And let me tell you, man: this album is good.
On American Candy the first track is “Miles Away“, which starts you off with a chill vibe – the song’s repetitive chorus easily getting lodged in your ear. (That doesn’t sound nice . . . but believe me, it’s quite pleasant.) Then, as the album goes on, the songs seem to keep getting better and better!
I don’t know if I have one particular favorite from this album, there are so many good tracks. I really like “My Hair“, “English Girls“, “Diet Soda Society“, “Am I Pretty?“,”(Un)Lost“, “Another Night on Mars” and, of course, “American Candy.” This, my friends, is already a list half the album.
The next album I listened to is Forever Halloween – a much calmer album compared to American Candy. (Not that American Candy is fast-paced, Forever Halloween is just a super chill album.)
My first time listening to this album was today, so I don’t have a lot of commentary on it. There are multiple gems in this album, such as “Ugly On The Inside“, but my favorite song would have to be “Kennedy Curse.” My interpretation of this song is that it’s about someone who has a hard time loving or showing affection. But, of course, it can be interpreted in many different ways.
As a mentioned above, I only just listened to Forever Halloween – so these are the only two albums of The Main that I have listened to so far. I understand that’s a small quantity, but their music is so good I had to talk about them!
Have you listened to The Main? What’s your favorite track and/or album? Don’t forget to comment! And feel free to suggest music to me!
