So, this brings me back to the rating debacle.

As I said, I gave K-12 a 6.5 / 10 personally, and the average of the songs was an 8. I commend Martinez for her relatable, emotionally impactful work, on both the music and the film, but I can’t overlook the inadequate storytelling and lack of growth from album one to album two.

Melanie Martinez began her career as a force to be reckoned with, and unfortunately, K-12, a 7 / 10, depletes that reputation. That doesn’t mean I don’t look forward to hearing from her in the future, I just hope that next time, Martinez can actually expand on the unique narration and sound she began with.
