in other carly news here's a track she co-wrote, originally from the emotion sessions (her version leaked years ago)

ufo, Monday, 1 April 2019 14:39 (one year ago) link

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.

Yeah, I've been wondering if that's just placeholder art.

wonder if Track 10 is a Charli cover

ILX pre-cover?

Jeff W, Monday, 1 April 2019 18:45 (one year ago) link

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

ufo, Monday, 1 April 2019 22:00 (one year ago) link

maybe that's when she'll be "dedicated"

cheese canopy (map), Monday, 1 April 2019 22:05 (one year ago) link

including the release date on the cover is so odd

Makes me think of Oasis' Be Here Now.

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.

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 21:07 (one year ago) link

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

Party For (Track) One

a large tuna called “Justice” (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 21:32 (one year ago) link

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

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:32 (one year ago) link

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

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:41 (one year ago) link

"party for one" wasn't even especially popular on ILX. it placed at #92 in last year's track poll

monotony, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:00 (one year ago) link

great song though deserved better

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:14 (one year ago) link

I like Party For One a good amount but it's my least favourite of the three recent singles.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 02:18 (one year ago) link

ILX pre-cover?

Perhaps...but we need songtitles in full first.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 04:19 (one year ago) link

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 year ago) link

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 year ago) link

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 year ago) link

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

God, the process of buying tickets sucks so much these days.

Yep, a very disappointing morning for everyone I knew trying to get tickets.

Chewshabadoo, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:05 (one year ago) link

I didn't get any either :( it was gonna fall on the gf's birthday, so now she is pissed at me. Fuck ticket master.

how on earth did "this love isn't crazy" not make the album

wow "comeback" rules

ufo, Thursday, 21 May 2020 13:17 (two weeks ago) link

"my home is your body, I can't stay away" <--- finally, a love song for Cronenberg fans

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 13:24 (two weeks ago) link

make that two songs! that broke my brain a bit.

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 13:29 (two weeks ago) link

not to knock the songs on this one too harshly but I think she just about nailed the song selection for the "real" album

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:10 (two weeks ago) link

jesus christ she did it again

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:16 (two weeks ago) link

there are quite a few songs on here i have no idea how she could have chosen "feels right" over for instance.

ufo, Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:17 (two weeks ago) link

hence "just about" lol

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:18 (two weeks ago) link

"window"!!!!! what was that!!!!

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:19 (two weeks ago) link

xps Interesting, I feel the exact opposite. For me the back half of Dedicated is a bit patchy, but after one listen I love this one all the way through. Which is a pleasant surprise bc I thought Emotion Side B was significantly weaker than the og album (except for Cry, which is all-time).

J. Sam, Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:23 (two weeks ago) link

Man, Now I Don't Hate California is sooo lush w/the twinkling synths and wave sound fx. I wish it went on for twice as long. Also side B is only five minutes shorter than the album proper!!

J. Sam, Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:24 (two weeks ago) link

"stay away," wtf... how is this happening

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:26 (two weeks ago) link

i agree about the back half of dedicated being a bit patchy and this one being more consistent

ufo, Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:27 (two weeks ago) link

back half of dedicated is all jams except "feels right" which is almost too linear of a "jam" to be a jam, but it ruled live so whatever

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:29 (two weeks ago) link

anyway thrilled to have another perfect collection of crj songs somehow, HOW IS SHE SO FUCKING GOOD

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:29 (two weeks ago) link

For me the back half of Dedicated is a bit patchy

imo "Feels Right" is the only sour note on the whole thing. "Right Words Wrong Time" and "Real Love" ar etop tier for moi.

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:30 (two weeks ago) link

lol xp

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:30 (two weeks ago) link

like "heartbeat," what's up with that glistening backdrop, where did it come from

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:33 (two weeks ago) link

the strings on "summer love"

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:38 (two weeks ago) link

Gonna have to put the entire Dedicated set on shuffle for a few days to sort this out. What a trial.

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:40 (two weeks ago) link

the early-new order instrumentation of "let's sort the whole thing out"

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:40 (two weeks ago) link

Can't wait to check this out. Dedicated never really bit me. Maybe I can cobble together my own tracklist between the two of them.

peace, man, Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:44 (two weeks ago) link

"comeback" is donna lewis-core

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 14:47 (two weeks ago) link

i like that she put "felt this way" and "stay away" together on the tracklist. variations on a theme

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 15:06 (two weeks ago) link

Oh man, this is so much better than last year's record.

peace, man, Thursday, 21 May 2020 15:22 (two weeks ago) link

I liked, didn't love, the Dedicated album and idk you guys most everything here seems left off the album for a reason. Like Dedicated is lesser than Emotion, so are the leftovers.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 21 May 2020 16:36 (two weeks ago) link

"summer love" is an unreal mirage of a song

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 17:34 (two weeks ago) link

dedicated isn't lesser than emotion, looking forward to hearing the b-sides

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Thursday, 21 May 2020 18:39 (two weeks ago) link

"this love isn't crazy", "window", "heartbeat", "let's sort the whole thing out", "comeback", "solo" are all great and the rest is still solid. feels about equal to dedicated in quality overall which is very good if not emotion-level

ufo, Friday, 22 May 2020 01:20 (two weeks ago) link

this rules

nxd, Friday, 22 May 2020 08:55 (two weeks ago) link

Too early to say which songs I would have preferred to see on the A-sides release, but "Let's Sort The Whole Thing Out" would definitely have been one of my favorite tracks from that album. I might have also put "Felt This Way" on the album proper.

enochroot, Friday, 22 May 2020 15:33 (two weeks ago) link

i would replace "feels right" with "summer love" if i cared to do such a thing

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 22 May 2020 15:45 (two weeks ago) link

I don't love all of this (even Carly can't sell "I'll be your special somebody/God I love your body") but from "Heartbeat" through to "Now I Don't Hate California After All" makes a super solid stretch and those two particular songs (+ "Let's Sort The Whole Thing Out") are among my favourites she's done.

coptic feels (seandalai), Saturday, 23 May 2020 23:48 (two weeks ago) link

It’s buried near the end, but Solo is the big euphoric pop banger here.

aphoristical, Sunday, 24 May 2020 05:12 (one week ago) link

"Solo" bugs me a bit for some reason I can't quite discern

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Sunday, 24 May 2020 10:58 (one week ago) link

i know we're still talking about side b but i was just thinking about how "happy not knowing" is the best song ever

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Monday, 25 May 2020 04:57 (one week ago) link

Definitely a highlight

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Monday, 25 May 2020 05:03 (one week ago) link

guess who also has a quarantine album in the pipeline

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 28 May 2020 14:40 (one week ago) link

i put off digging into dedicated for a long time, and i just realized it was the monochromatic cover putting me off. emotion is overflowing with color, so monochrome felt like a bad turn. but i'm listening to it now and it's just. remarkable.

does anyone else have this experience with carly where she seems to have an uncanny ability to go through my mental listening history, pick out sounds i've liked but wish there were more examples of, and then make perfect songs from them? is this just me?

Josh (phantompenguin), Thursday, 28 May 2020 16:20 (one week ago) link

I can't say I feel you on the second point exactly (she does use a lot of cool sounds tho), but I used to feel like albums with black and white covers somehow made the music more drab

Vinnie, Friday, 29 May 2020 04:53 (one week ago) link

As for Side B, "Comeback" is my big keeper from the album

Vinnie, Friday, 29 May 2020 08:45 (one week ago) link
