**** Troye hatte auch schon bessere Songs im Angebot; so kommt "Wild" lange nicht an "Happy Little Pill" heran, auch wenn die Produktion und der Gesang wie immer gut ausfallen. Trotzdem überzeugt mich dieser EP-Opener nicht so, wie ich es mir wünschen würde.
*** It's another intricately produced effort and the attention to detail is impressive. However it's a bit too sluggish for my liking, would have at least liked more power behind the chorus if it's going to remain at the same tempo. 3.5
***** The attention to detail here is something worth noting, because the more I listen to this the more I realise just how many subtle production effects are going on without me noticing, even after 100 listens! The child-like "Wilds" in the introduction still put me off slightly, but it doesn't matter because everything else works brilliantly; Troye's voice captures the right intensity and couples excellently with the very strong production. I also cannot write this review without saying how much of a golden moment 0:36 and 1:45 - it captures the perfect intensity and pushes the momentum into the chorus perfectly, while really highlighting Troye's voice and demonstrating the excellent production.
Timing seems to be the key to everything because I happened to stumble across this at a time when I had similar feelings for someone else, and so I related to this on an immense scale despite me never really wanting any sort of allegiance with Troye.
*** I can't get past that "wi-i-i-ild". That starts the song on the wrong foot. It was mildly annoying before and is more so lately. I'm not feeling much authenticity in the delivery in this particular case. 2.5*
**** I didn't really expect Troye to make music like this just based off "Happy Little Pill", but there's no complaints here. It's a lovely little song. It's very well produced and sounds very aesthetically pleasing, with the background vocals and every other subtle detail working together to create a joyful listen. Still sounding good 18 months on from release.
