i was watching the J.Lo movie Hustlers and "Royals" is in it. i haven't heard this album in a very long time so i decided to poll it. i almost did the other album but the movie changed my mind. looking forward to seeing if this album is still a classic in my book.

"Royals" is queen of this batch; though my favorite Lorde song is "The Love Club."

"400 Lux" is also great

Buzzcut Season is the best song she ever recorded

DJP, Thursday, 7 May 2020 00:48 (two months ago) link

"Ribs" still no. 1 for me; "Buzzcut Season" comes in 2nd

Buzzcut Season

i'll vote "a world alone" because probably no one else will and it deserves a point. "ribs" would be my other answer

Went with Ribs. This album turned out to be a huge grower.

Never warmed to "Royals," but always liked "Team," so that.

i did actually get to re-listen to this last night. this album seems very top heavy to me but ends great. hard to believe "Glory and Gore" was a single.

"Ribs."

I like Tennis Court the most

I have always loved "Royals" since I first heard it so many years ago.

Me too -- from the moment I heard it playing in the background, in a store, and had the I need to find out what this is moment. It still sounds just as good to me today.

400 lux for me. Its the kind of song I can listen to on repeat for a long while.

cajunsunday, Friday, 8 May 2020 17:41 (two months ago) link

i should clarify, i actually do really like "Glory and Gore" it just seems to be an odd choice for a single.

Bee OK, Friday, 8 May 2020 22:48 (two months ago) link

This album always struck me as being poorly sequenced, FWIW

Notwithstanding A World Alone’s “...When people are talking, people are talking, Let 'em talk.” looping into Tennis Court’s “Don't you think that it's boring how people talk...” (and/or providing perfect thematic bookends to this particular don’t-call-it-a-concept-album album)?

Sure.

Also, Ribs.

i think i have listened to this album five more times since i started this poll. this album sort of sinks in and won't let you go. i'm the biggest fan of "Royals" but the EP version that came before just seems to tower above the this album version. they really didn't need to remix it.

Bee OK, Saturday, 9 May 2020 22:55 (one month ago) link

"Tennis Court" is my favorite, "Buzzcut Season" is the best non-single.
