"Black Parade" / Beyonce in 2020

"Black Parade" is almost exhausting (perhaps "exhaustive" would be more appropriate) in its denseness and I absolutely love it.

I'm not even going to try to do this song justice but you can talk about it (and speculate about a possible new album) here.

All I want to know is, will she be the savior of the broken, the beaten and the damned?

this song is great, idk why no one's talking about it. doesn't matter how high you raise the bar, seems like Bey always delivers. the lyrics are so dense with allusions, just a masterclass.

probably a combo of protest song saturation and the overall decline of the beyhive

For example, I posted that three minutes ago and I remain unmurdered.

The song is good? idk, I feel like I have used up my personal allotment of Beyonce Interest and no longer feel compelled to have an opinion on new music by her.

DJP summed it up for me. It's good, even excellent, but I don't find it thrilling like I might have a few years back

I think it's a great song and after listening to it I have gone back to check out some of her lesser-known earlier work.

lol I know you aren't going "you know what, this 'Single Ladies' song is catchy" but that's the image that popped into my head

I was being tongue-in-cheek, of course. But although I've checked out most of her albums to some extent, I probably haven't given her the attention she deserves.

she's got a bright future ahead of her
