CRJ's style choices (as in fashion) in the last 6 months or so have been A++. Either that or she looks good in everything.

presumably "party for one" didn't make the album because it wasn't a hit (that's the usual reason labels do this isn't it?) but who on her team was seriously expecting it to be one?

including the release date on the cover is so odd

Was "Party for One" not a hit?? I mean certainly not on the level of anything from E-MO-TION but I've been hearing it out and about quite a bit.

there's still an outside chance it'll be one of the "TRACK 1"s and/or (more likely) a bonus track

I thought it was pretty popular too, but I just looked at the peak chart positions thing on Wikipedia and... yknow, one of those moments you realize ILX is not the world

Even "I Really Like You" only got to #39 on the Hot 100 in the States. They even got Tom Hanks in the video, like. What more do you people need?! Ug. Goodnight

I Really Like You got to #3 in the UK but Run Away With Me didn't even make the Top 40 and that was her last "hit" over here.

groovypanda, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 08:27 (one month ago) Permalink

Bought a presale of the album to get a code to get presale tickets for the London gig. It seemed to sell out in under a minute, so no tickets for me yet.

Chewshabadoo, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 09:26 (one month ago) Permalink

Im not surenif it works the same in UK, but dometimes in the U.S. with Ticketmaster, if you keep trying you can still score. I think the deal is people will have them in their carts but then not buy them? I tried to buy tickets for something last year and when I logged on at 10 a.m., it said "no tickets available." I kept trying and gave up, but went back half an hour later out of sheer frustration and managed to get some. Dont want to fill you with too much hope but maybe keep trying for a minute.

☮ (peace, man), Wednesday, 3 April 2019 09:36 (one month ago) Permalink

Turns out I got a code that can only be used for US dates, and I could have got a free code for the London/Paris gigs if I had been paying attention: https://zaphod.uk.vvhp.net/vvreg/14293-637481.html

Tons of filler on this thing - Julian is a terrible album opener and after that I don't like anything beyond track 5. I Want You In My Room is the obvious highlight, but as mentioned above, way too short. Hoping for a 12-inch edit.

☮ (peace, man), Sunday, 19 May 2019 15:26 (five days ago) Permalink

This is good, certainly, but thinking I'll like the live show even more. (The crowd last time I saw her in 2016 was off the charts, in the best possible way.)

“happy not knowing” splits the difference between kiss and emotion side b and it’s amazing

The “he needs me” section in Everything He Needs has got to be a nod to the Shelley Duvall song in Popeye, right?

Julian is great, I’d love an 80s style 6-minute extended remix to DJ with.

I just keep thinking of The Shield actor and irl wife murderer Michael Jace.

Listening again and some of the other stuff is growing on me a little. I'll keep trying.

Damn, Julien murdered his wife?

I am halfway through my first listen of this album and liking it, though it doesn't seem as sticky as Emotion yet. are the guitars on "Want You in My Room" sampled? sounds like a Chameleons song or something

Vinnie, Monday, 20 May 2019 11:27 (four days ago) Permalink

I'm liking it better and better. Maybe I was just feeling prickly when I listened to it yesterday.

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 21 May 2019 16:22 (three days ago) Permalink

Something's coming over me, I need to get a hold of you now from Real Love really jumped out at me and for some reason instantly made me think of the Wilco line His fangs have been pulled and I really want to see you tonight from Poor Places. Which is quite a stretch, yes, but Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was one of the most visible albums in that shot of Carly in front of a shelf of records that was floating around the other day.

☮ (peace, man), Tuesday, 21 May 2019 17:11 (three days ago) Permalink

I had a very similar experience, was lukewarm at first , but then after repeated listens the nuances in the production paired with the lyrics really made me changed my mind. So much so , that I prefer it over EMOTION.

besotted by the album; "on the bed! on the floor!....i don't care! anymore!" and "and i'll press you to the pages of my HEART!" are both top tier carly moments

second favourite song on the album after WYIMR is "everything he needs", it's the most glorious thing to use as a soundtrack for a sunny walk

monotony, Tuesday, 21 May 2019 23:19 (three days ago) Permalink

Favorite moment of the album has to beThe second verse from WYIMR " When no one loves you like they really mean it I got you covered, under covers, Can you feel it?" There is something so endearingly cheesy but affirming about it.

aguzman1990, Wednesday, 22 May 2019 00:57 (two days ago) Permalink

Totally agree with monotony on the 2 highlights.

so many favorite moments all over the whole record -- my most favorites have been "Julien" and "Want You In My Room"

josh winters (josh), Wednesday, 22 May 2019 05:07 (two days ago) Permalink

79I've been underrating I'll Be Your Girl. It's very different from the rest of the album. It would have been cool if she had released a whole album or ep or single like that or something, but it does kinda stick out here, imo. I do agree that it's a successful pop rock song though, a la No Doubt or Paramore.

The swoopy little synth from Automatically In Love feels like when you're on the Scrambler at the county fair.

Feels Right is one of my favorites on the record now. What does everybody think about her frazzled vocals on the chorus?

I love 'em. Actually sound even better next to those generic dudebro vocals

Number None, Wednesday, 22 May 2019 15:00 (two days ago) Permalink

I love them too! I just hope she isn't hurting herself as much as it sounds like. Also, I didn't realize that the backing vocals were so generic. I don't keep up with much dude pop these days.

But on a similar note, I have had a disquieting thought about Want You In My Room. I've been operating under the assumption that Carly herself provided the vocodered vox on the chorus. But what if it was Jack Antonoff and the song was more of a duet? Under so much processing - would it matter? It kind of gives me chills (the bad kind). Is there any evidence to support or debunk this?

☮ (peace, man), Wednesday, 22 May 2019 16:41 (two days ago) Permalink

i don't have liner notes in front of me but i've been assuming the robotic voice in the chorus is him. i... don't think this makes the song a duet any more than his "whoaaoh"s on "out of the woods" would

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 22 May 2019 16:45 (two days ago) Permalink

I guess I just don't want Jack Antonoff wanting me in his room.
