Album Review: "Guts" By Olivia Rodrigo (9/10)

Geffen Records

Producer: Dan Nigro

It’s safe to say Olivia Rodrigo’s sophomore release Guts is a worthy successor to her award-winning debut SOUR. The album showcases her growth as an artist, with experiments of pop-rock and fast-paced vocal techniques similar to those of the band Wet Leg. Rodrigo excels the most as a storyteller, as her music is very personable, tongue-in-cheek and full of imaginative theatrics. Although not everyone can relate to her youthful coming-of-age lyrics, it’s still a fun ride. – Jacqueline Naranjo
