Ok so this album is Top 10 over here and at least half of it is straight-up fantastic. No thread so far?

Well anyway..

what say you?

She's great. Because of the internets, I'm not sure when it's being released where, but it's been out since early-ish 2015.

can anyone explain the sudden commercial success of this? upon seeing it in the UK top 10 my guess initially was the TV appearances and glastonbury but then i saw that she was top 10 in australia too and she hasn't, to my knowledge, had much mainstream exposure here.

she's a superlative performer. my favourites are saint claude, tilted and safe and holy but the whole album is a very pleasant listen. allegedly the songs are better in original french - i'm yet to confirm tho

Is the tv show Girls popular in Australia?

the album has been big here in France since last year so I'm surprised to see that it's only breaking now elsewhere.

yeah some of these songs have been around for a very long time. the 'IT' demo is on youtube dated 2011.

What's with the lack of posts on ilx about her? Is there a different thread? Baflling.

Love the new single ('Girlfriend')and sterling work by co-producer Dam Funk. Worth checking her performance on latest edition of Jools Holland if you have access to iPlayer.

Totally obsessed with the latest single

Wow, that one is so excellent!

So excited for this album. I liked the debut, but these two singles are miles ahead of anything on there.

Liking this a lot, much more than 'Doesn't matter'

this album is gonna rule

this is the best one yet. i'm enjoying all these singles much more than anything from the debut, excited for this

three weeks pass...

this is a really great album and probably my favourite pop album this year, but 'the stranger' is such an odd closer, it's so different in tone to the rest of the album it just feels like a bonus track. also weird that 'le g' isn't included on the english version

This is fantastic - I like how the Spotify version immediately gives you the entire album all over again but in French. (The French version is better!)

i am really surprised this hasn't got much attention here yet, like it's one of the best pop albums of the year (the best imo), draws heavily on jam & lewis, excellent lyrics discussing gender etc. (at least in english but my bilingual friend says the french lyrics are even better)

idk that all seems like ilm bait to me

I like this album a lot.

Tim F, Monday, 24 September 2018 06:42 (four months ago) Permalink

Really not feeling it (compared to first LP) but I guess I'm just not that into the stuff (eg 80s gloss-funk) she references

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Monday, 24 September 2018 07:48 (four months ago) Permalink

and lyrically, sure it's articulate but, boy, does it feel talkative

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Monday, 24 September 2018 07:51 (four months ago) Permalink

something french... talkative... ?????!

||||||||, Monday, 24 September 2018 08:29 (four months ago) Permalink

talkative isn't a problem at all to me, it's just refreshing to hear someone cover this lyrical ground so well when others that have tried similar things and even been praised (such as shaking the habitual) have just felt clumsy to me

totally fair if you're just not into what it's referencing though, i didn't really get into her debut much at all

ufo, Monday, 24 September 2018 09:16 (four months ago) Permalink

I’m in awe of what she’s achieved with this album - still getting my head around it, frankly. “Bruce est dans le brouillard”... Matty Healy would be weeping.

I really love this album. I've had it on repeat over the weekend. A huge step up from her debut.

kitchen person, Monday, 24 September 2018 14:40 (four months ago) Permalink

My God this is incredible yeah.

piscesx, Friday, 5 October 2018 02:04 (four months ago) Permalink

I feel like she is operating on a level that very few pop acts are even close to approaching rn

monotony, Friday, 5 October 2018 10:47 (four months ago) Permalink

the choreography is so good on top of everything else

ufo, Friday, 5 October 2018 11:18 (four months ago) Permalink

I like it well enough but won't deliver a final judgment. The electrobeats aren't as twitchy or densely layered as Haim's but she's a more compelling singer than Danielle.
