Billie Eilish’s debut album has been the most anticipated release of 2019, and she exceeds all expectations, providing a twist on her earlier music that gives her a more mature sound.

When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? opens with “Xanny,” which discusses the harmful effects of addiction to opiates.

That’s representative of her approach, since most of the album’s songs relate to important topics of today’s teenage society, making the album a makeshift anthem for the youth of today. The album ends with “Listen Before I Go,” which talks about what it’s like living with depression, and the effects that could derive from mental illnesses.

The overall sound of the album is unique with every song and stays consistently interesting throughout the duration.

“All the Good Girls Go to Hell” exhibits a pop-punk, Panic! At the Disco rhythm, while still maintaining Eilish’s creepy flow. The album’s diverse sounds are shown through the song “8,”which replicates Rex Orange County’s indie ukulele vibe. Eilish goes as far as to sampling dialogue from The Office in “My Strange Addiction” to exhibit her creative process.

Overall, the debut album immaculately collects diverse sounds and atmospheres to create a new influence in pop music. Eilish’s new wave of music breaks any stereotypes or boundaries that previously have held back other musical artists from creating what they love. The album shows how much effort and creativity Eilish puts into her profession.
