    This is real-girl pop with massive charm.

    Far from consigning her to one-hit wonder territory, the blend of strength of personality and music-biz savvy on Title shows that Meghan Trainor is clever enough to parlay a big hit into a real career.

    While the 21-year-old singer rocks more sass and self-empowerment on her full-length major-label debut (which, confusingly, shares a name with the four-song EP she released in September), she's also charmingly old-fashioned.

    Aside from an understandable naivete, Trainor's weaknesses are her stylistic cherry-picking and her compulsion to appear adorably relatable and socially correct all at once.

    The success of Lips Are Movin’ confirms that she’s no Eamon-style one-hit wonder; but Trainor might do well to study Duffy’s fate.

    This blue-eyed soul is ultimately just pale.
  7. 33
    Trainor recycles the themes from every forgettable Billboard alumnus from the past decade, with a bit more color here and there, but not enough to distinguish herself from the pack.

Meghan Trainor stays within the same style of music as her previous single/ep releases, but leaves us interested thanks to the presence of catchy beats and deep ballads. Standout tracks (newly released through this album) for me are No Good For You, Walkashame and Bang Dem Sticks. Expand

A jovem de 20 anos, que ganhou conhecimento de sua gravadora Epic Records por compor muito bem e para artistas como a banda country Rascal Flatts, é quem assume a dianteira entre as composições de seu primeiro álbum oficial. O papel consegue se cumprir com facilidade, com o apelo comercial e chiclete do disco, faixas como ''Lips Are Movin'' e ''Dear Future Husband'' bateram com facilidade do top 10 dos maiores hits pop dos gráficos da Billboard. Meghan revive os anos 50 no disco, mas sem assimilar muito suas referências, acaba deixando tudo banalizado e pouca coisa realmente soa consistente no disco. ''All About That Bass'' que pode ser interpretada como uma música de autoajuda, de libertação, de quebra de esteriótipos e para você se aceitar e ser feliz como você realmente é, sem viver em meio a padrões estabelecidos pela sociedade, acaba tendo uma outra conotação, quando Trainor diz que sua mãe sempre dizia que os "meninos gostam de ter o que apertar à noite" Expand
