This album, True, includes some of Avicii’s most well-known and iconic songs, such as “Wake me Up”. The Swedish musician was known for his generally upbeat EDM music, complemented by strong vocals and catchy lyrics from featuring artists. The trend continued with this album, where various singers were featured, and different moods were created across 10 songs, ultimately bound together by his iconic “feel-good” style. I think Avicii’s music was unique and different from other mainstream EDM musicians at the time because it proved to be a “softer” alternative to their heavy use of the bass and drops. I really enjoyed the album as a whole, and I would give it 4.5 stars.
