Cantrall’s 10-minute songwriting lacks variety

Every song on Kylie Cantrall’s debut album, 10 Minute Songs (Volume 1), was written in 10 minutes or less, but the rush might have forced her to sacrifice the quality of the music.

As Cantrall has gotten older, she has switched from music and dancing to acting, and now she is back to music. She started posting videos of herself making these new songs on TikTok, and she finally announced to her fans that she had created an album.

Her song “Mascara” is about someone she dated, and she now realizes that they were just wasting her time. Her realization is portrayed in the lyric, “So many wasted days, wasted nights / Worried I’d miss your call / I don’t miss that at all.”

Cantrall also includes upbeat songs like “Put the Record On,” which takes listeners through her experience falling in love and trying to make a good first impression with that person. “My head is spinning / Ever since I got you in it / It’s hard to admit it / But I think about your smile every minute,” she sings.

The singer has great vocals on the new album. But the songs sound similar and feature similar background music.

Maybe for the next record, Cantrall should spend a little more time writing the songs.
