Initially, when people think about a female vocal group, most would probably not think much of it in today’s music.

However, the group Fifth Harmony (which consists of five ladies: Camilla Cabello, Normani Kordei Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Allyson Brooke Hernandez and Dinah Jane Hansen) proves that such a style and concept can exceed those poor assumptions by extraordinary standards as seen through their most recent album Reflection, which was released in February.

The album, overall, is excellent. The music is incredibly addicting in its R&B style and is fun to listen to with cool instrumentation that varies from several techno effects–with beats, piano and guitar–to more subtle choices with physical clapping and snaps.

Vocally, the group is astounding; all of the ladies work incredibly well together to create a good blend of varying voices that are quite breath-taking and beautiful, as well as dynamic in sound.

Additionally, there was also a nice inclusion of featured artists such as Kid Ink, Tyga and Meghan Trainor.

With all of these in mind, it is fair to say that everything works well with each other for the majority of the songs to create an interesting and good sound to listen to. In short, it was all very much harmonic.

Certain songs that definitely stood out and exemplified the previously mentioned harmony in the album are “Everlasting Love,” the album’s titular song, “Reflection,” “We Know,” and “Brave Honest Beautiful.” In trying to understand the album as a whole, it is essential to listen to these songs–they show the album in its best quality.

However, the only real disappointment of the album would be the song “BO$$,” mainly because the lyrics were unintelligible, and the song itself was unappealing to listen to in comparison with the other impressive qualities that otherwise distinguish “Reflection” as a truly great album.

Don’t just take my word for it, though. Listen the album. Embrace the harmony; it won’t be that hard to do.
