Troye Sivan's Blue Neighbourhood (Album Review)
Blue Neighbourhood is Pop/Dance Music at it's Peak!
When I first heard Troye Sivan's new record Blue Neighbourhood toward the end of 2015 I was beyond amazed by the production quality of the album. It was not only a good pop/dance album but it had this certain mesmerizing quality to me and the beats and melody hit me just right. One of those mesmerizing qualities is in track 2 "BITE" when he exclaims "kiss me on the mouth and set me free...I can be the subject of your dreams."
The lyrics are so strong and sexy! (I confess it gets me a little hot and bothered at times. Ha ha!) But seriously the record is also very heartfelt and emotional. For proof of this you only need to watch a special 3-part music video journey that he did for three tracks on his records. Each video tells a story of a young man and his forbidden love. (It's SO romantic!!!)
If you would like to watch the entire trilogy I will include the first part below and then you can go to Troye Sivan's official YouTube Channel!

Below is the track listing for the album. I have put a star next to the tracks that I think really stick out as original, enjoyable, and smooth. The whole album is very smooth and blends well but if you are strapped for time then first listen to the ones I have starred. (*)

- for him. (ft. Allday)*
- TOO GOOD

If you would like more information on who wrote the songs (Sivan is given credit on every song) then I would highly recommend looking at the Wikipedia page for Blue Neighbourhood.
Troye Sivan's 2016 tour was amazing!!! I was able to attend the November 18, 2016 Atlanta concert which took place at the Tabernacle in downtown. It was a very exciting evening! The good news is Troye sang live which is amazing because a lot of acts these days just lip sync. One of the things I really liked other then the great singing and energy was the connection he had with his fans. He even took breaks between songs to show off gifts people gave him. He was genuinely appreciative.
The Suburbia Tour was well worth the money I paid!
