Sky Ferreira Finally Releases Debut Album

Sky Ferreira first rose to fame in 2010 with her singles "17," "One" and her best song "Obsession." Her album was due out but never came. In 2011 Ferreira released her first EP As If! which gave had another one of Ferreira's best songs "99 Tears." While the EP was strong it wasn't as good as it could have been. Then in 2012 Ferreira released her second EP Ghost. This album had a different alternative sound and even had an indie sound. The first single released was "Red Lips" which was co-written with Garbage singer Shirley Manson. The EP garnered her some more fans and more respect.
Then last month Ferreira released her debut album Night Time, My Time. This record had a stronger indie rock sound and had some great songs. From the opener "Boys," the weird "Omanko" and the first single "You're Not the One" Ferreira shows that she is a good songwriter. While some of the songs aren't as great as others like the title track on tracks like "Ain't Your Right" and the rocking "Kristine" show that Ferreira is capably of making great songs. The weird title track shows Ferreira's weaknesses, a topic Ferreira isn't ashamed of tackling lyrically.
"I Blame Myself" and album highlight "Nobody Asked Me (If I Was Okay)" tackle weakness. "You showed me all my weakness," Ferreira sings in "Ain't Your Right."
The album's two best songs are "24 Hours" and "Heavy Metal Heart." "24 Hours" is a love song which features Ferreira singing about how she wishes the day wouldn't end when she gets to spend it with her love. "Heavy Metal Heart" isn't really metal but it does have some sick guitar chords. The song is about falling in love and turning her heavy metal heart beat.
Ferreira goes to show us that she can make good songs into an album. While her other records had great songs, this album shows that she can make it as an artist.
