Harry Styles has finally released his highly-anticipated second album. With a new tour in 2020 and his heavily-marketed pop-up shops around the world, “Fine Line” has been a global success. According to Kev’s Best, the album has been ranked in the top three largest debut weeks within this past year. My top three favorite songs on Fine Line would have to be “She,” “Treat People with Kindness” and “Falling.” Along with his three popular hits played on the radio, “Lights Up,” “Adore You” and “Watermelon Sugar,” these new songs embody Styles’ unique vibe.

1. “She”

“She” is an example of some of the few songs that have stuck out from the rest of the album. Styles expresses his feminine side on this specific track, including imagery of daydreams and sailing away. The two-minute-long instrumental solo toward the end of the song gives the story more character while also showcasing the incredible talents of Styles’ band.

2. “Treat People with Kindness”

A common vintage theme throughout Styles’ advertisements, artwork and merchandise is revolved around the ‘60s and ‘70s. The background vocals and lyrics in “Treat People With Kindness” made me feel transported back to a retro era when artists such as The Beatles and Queen were the most popular and influential due to the reminiscent hint of a theme of peace and love.

3. “Falling”

“Falling” is one of the slower songs from the album, communicating Styles’ pain and emotions after his breakup. Lines such as “And I get the feeling that you’ll never need me again” showcase the heartache that the artist has been going through. This is one of the most well-liked songs from Styles’ album with over 3.5 million views on YouTube.

“Fine Line” song shows Styles’ dramatic growth compared to the previous album. “Harry Styles” featured more slow melodies, while “Fine Line” showcases a more fun, upbeat and catchy collection of songs to dance and sing along to. While there are some slower songs, the ending of the album features a message stating that love has ups and downs, ending this album on an uplifting note.
