YUNGBLUD – YUNGBLUD – ALBUM REVIEW
Few artists have the momentum that YUNGBLUD has right now. Having burst onto the scene in 2018 with his debut album, ‘21st Century Liability’, there has been no slow in pace since then with a new third self-titled album now upon us.
2020’s ‘weird!’ not just continued the impetus of ‘21st Century Liability’ but instead strapped a jetpack to this young musicians back. The question here then is does this third effort suffice to keep the train rolling?
Simply put, yes! Seemingly that momentum is relentless and YUNGBLUD is once again able to not just capitalise on his successes but fully build on them. His distinctive vocal presence ensures that all his work is easily identifiable, which almost allows some additional freedom to experiment musically.
Surrounded by talented collaborators such as WILLOW on single, ‘Memories’; YUNGBLUD is able to push boundaries whilst not alienating his pre-amassed and incredibly loyal fanbase.

The snobbish gatekeepers of rock music will be disgusted to hear that this hugely talented musician described as the future of rock but whilst dinosaurs like Gene Simmons continue the tired trope that rock music is dead we need to evolve and unshackle ourselves from our preconceived notions of what rock music is!
The difference between YUNGBLUD and some of the posers that have trod this path is that he has the musical substance to equal his powerful aesthetic. He achieves his admiration through a total package and that sets him apart from many of his contemporaries.
This self-titled album is exhibit number three in the case for YUNGBLUD as the future of rock, and the jury are ready to return their verdict of guilt!
