Review: Demi Lovato – Neon Lights (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Demi Lovato – Neon Lights.

This track was released in 2013 on the album Demi.

It had me thinking that this may be a half way decent track at the beginning. Unfortunately, after the first few seconds, it all went downhill from there. for the synth throughout this track, there was a lot of tried and true ideas that were sprinkled in there, but it was just a collection of concepts throughout. It was as if the producer said, “This is a good idea… oh, and so is this… and that’s a good idea…” then just compartmentalized them and dropped them in almost randomly throughout the track. What you end up having is a track with absolutely no flow. There was nothing that really tied this track together to make all the sounds I hear be cohesive.

The lyrics themselves were also disappointing. It started off making me think that the lyrics might be OK even though it bumped into cliches from time to time, but after I made it part way through the track, I realized just how much copy pasting there was. The lyrics ended up being really repetitive and, ultimately, it lacked any kind of depth. What really irked me in this track was that this track practically ends in the middle of one of the lyrics. It’s as if the producer said, “OK, I’m completely out of ideas. Let’s just cut the track randomly here and call it a day.”

At the end of the day, this track strikes me as one where there was a lot of research done on what works in electronica, but the work was then handed to an amateur who just threw it all together hastily and called it a day. It has no flow, the lyrics are repetitive and the track awkwardly ends half way through a lyric. So, it was a audio mess more than a track.
