One Word Album Review: Hot Mulligan’s ‘You’ll Be Fine’


Aw yes, the album review: A 300-500 word write-up explaining all the eccentricities pretentious wordsmiths love and hate about a band’s new album. While most reviews tend to hover the line between a positive and negative analysis, we’ve found that some seem to deviate from the pack choosing to spend their time putting an artist down for months of hard work.

We, on the other hand, would rather give the power back to the artist by letting them take a stab at reviewing (or simply explaining) their new music. And in order to make that process as easy (and fun) as possible, we’ve decided to give the artists one word and one word only to describe each song off their new release – thus creating the One Word Album Review.

Featured on today’s OWAR is Hot Mulligan’s playful pop-punk epic, You’ll Be Fine. Weighing in at eleven passion-soaked songs covering a wide array of emotions and feelings, the latest LP from the Michigan act 100% solidifies their emerging star status in the somewhat crowded Warped Tour scene.     

Now, before we turn this too much into our own review, we’re going to pass things over to the band as they carefully chose eleven words and GIFs to describe each track off You’ll Be Fine. To check out what Hot Mulligan picked, be sure to look below. Afterward, make sure to pick up a copy of the band’s brilliant new album here.
