The Sophomore Album that Is Better Than the Debut
Sam Smith’s release of his second album, The Thrill of it All, is one that snuck up on me. I do not really keep a close eye on too many artists and mostly for good reason; however, Sam brought his A game to his sophomore album and gave us everything we needed and more. His angelic vocals are almost accompanied by a choir and his piano is not forgotten, but he does take a bit to sing more about other people than himself, which is a change of pace from his Debut. We follow him on a journey of coming out to getting hurt then falling in love and telling those around you how you feel.
