something very swv about "distraction", i love it (and "24/7" is also such a necessary song)

I love it too but it's about 45 seconds too long? idk

"The Letter" is so brutal.

totally. really exemplifies what makes her songwriting so effective for me - it's so unflinching, she doesn't sugarcoat any word or emotion (and her relatively plain style of singing accentuates this), but really elegant in the way she pieces together a situation and its consequences via so many details that bring the entire song into focus

― lex pretend, Tuesday, November 24, 2015 12:08 PM (nine months ago)

it's kind of fucked to put it even as early as trk 9 / 8 (w/ intro), since it wrecks you and then the next few songs can just pass by in a daze

I'ma save your name under somethin' else
I'ma keep your things deep in myself
I'ma tweet our inside jokes to the outside world
Forget you, go away
I'ma pick you up from the back in trains
Kept you in the world when it's all pretend
You're just you, I'm just me
There's no us, it's nothin'

i loooove "undercover" and basically all of the other songs i've heard from this record

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 12 January 2017 17:01 (one year ago) Permalink

it's not even like chance x tlc blew my mind or anything but as soon i saw the cover and title i had this v relaxed certainty that yes this album will be a happening

now it feels like being in the airfield tower watching the career plane approach smoothly for landing

still quite opaque to locate the moment when/why her tide rose. to say it was the incident is reductively cynical but also pretty wrong i think

r|t|c, Thursday, 12 January 2017 17:17 (one year ago) Permalink

weirdly i think it was the grammy nom? like, them getting her singer-songwriterliness

omg "undercover"

I've listened to "undercover" about 20 times today

Spottie, Thursday, 12 January 2017 18:51 (one year ago) Permalink

this album is too long but there's tons to like... i listened to you should be here today and i think that is still better but this album has some of the best songs she's ever written, some stuff that feels purposefully experimental that she really pulls off

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 January 2017 17:38 (one year ago) Permalink

the first track sounds like one of the upbeat songs on southern hummingbird, she does one song that is like fka twigs that is great, and this also has probably the most faithful and best aaliyah homage i've heard

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 January 2017 17:41 (one year ago) Permalink

there's no way I can get away with this in a review but "distraction" is both really good and like an R&B "bright yellow gun"

I'm listening now. Sounds good.

katherine, that's an amazing description.

why is this album 62 minutes long lol

monotony, Friday, 27 January 2017 00:09 (one year ago) Permalink

I don't care for the last third, or at least it hasn't clicked yet, but "Do U Dirty" to "Too Much" is my favorite sequence.

The burrito of ennui (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 27 January 2017 00:22 (one year ago) Permalink

it's def too long, there's like 4-5 songs i'd cut to make it an easier and better listen, and i think most people will feel that way, but with different songs

J0rdan S., Friday, 27 January 2017 00:37 (one year ago) Permalink

the first 7 songs are pretty great, then after that it gets a little patchy and starts to feel long, but there's still a bunch of great songs

the New Edition quote in "In My Feelings" is well done

Lol how is 60 minutes long, do u guys even remember the 74 minute cds of the era this draws inspiration from

i luv concision but most of my fav records of the last few years have been pretty long; idk time is elastic and subjectively felt anyway (i always remember "distraction" as faster than it is) and "keep on" is already forecasting a relaxed, luxurious sense of time and space

this record's got my number btw

in so far as length goes i've only sketched it out so far but i) the album clearly holds equal interest in, has taken the same care with, all its songs and ii) i love spending the time with her, all of it

r|t|c, Friday, 27 January 2017 14:54 (one year ago) Permalink

oh my god I love this album, I'm looking forward so much to getting to know these songs. I was disappointed when it ended so soon

lex pretend, Friday, 27 January 2017 14:58 (one year ago) Permalink

she's nailed the sequencing too esp w/r/t previously-released tracks (am also happy all the singles made it!)

lex pretend, Friday, 27 January 2017 14:59 (one year ago) Permalink

i think my biggest beef w/ this is the mastering, it gets unnecessarily loud at certain points (esp the choruses for the singles). or like the part where the bass comes in on "everything is yours" sounds ugly to me strictly just from a mastering standpoint, kinda disappointing (tho maybe it was just my screen or cuz i don't use an amp for headphones or whatever!)

'you should be here' was such a... pleasant listen, i think the major label mastering complex kinda fucked w/ this new one a bit

J0rdan S., Friday, 27 January 2017 15:04 (one year ago) Permalink

The stream does sound ever so slightly off balance, more than my download copy, but hey so are her relationships.

dub this album onto cassette tape, dub that onto another, repeat fifty times over, place the final tape in your shirt pocket and then jump out of the nearest open window

I can't decide between "Get Like" and "Undercover" for my 2017 mix. Feel like there's a song on this album for every stage of a relationship and its attendant feelings/attitudes.
