[This review will not be a track-by-track review as I am sacrificing in-depth reviews in some cases in order to review all the albums I want to review before 2016.]
It's rare that a lead single of an album so perfectly captures the essence of the upcoming album, but Young Blood from Not an Apology did this. It's full of the same teenage rebelliousness that courses through Not an Apology, making the entire album seem like the kind of album many people would describe as the anthems of millennials. Of course, the themes do become repetitive sometimes, and the lyric writing could've been a lot better on some tracks, but on the whole it's one of the most cohesive albums I've listened to in a while — almost as cohesive as Taylor Swift's 1989, and that's a feat not many can accomplish.
