    It finally happened! I saw my queen last night. After years of stanning and months of planning, I took a weekend trip to Philadelphia with one of my best friends, the only other person I know in real life who loves Carly nearly as much as I do. My journey began in Cape Cod, where I was on a family vacation. I drove my own car separately from everyone else, because saying bye and leaving them early was the only way I could make it to one of the northeast tour stops. I drove for four hours back to Albany by myself on Friday, where I was reunited with my pets and did some last-minute trip shopping at Target. I was so excited for the next day that I got four hours of sleep at most, but it didn’t even matter. Despite being the furthest thing from a morning person, I woke up at 5:00 AM. I fed my pets, assembled my outfit (also from Target), did my beauty routine, and loaded up on caffeine and sugar. This was a recurring theme throughout the day: unless I’m forgetting something, I had two cups of coffee, an extra-large cherry Slurpee, a grande Frappuccino, a tall glass of sweetened iced green tea, and a venti iced chai latte. This was probably overkill, but I don’t drink alcohol or do drugs and wanted to get high on something so this was the safest bet. When I was walking into the train station from the parking lot, I realized my heels were bleeding because I was wearing brand new shoes that hadn’t yet been broken into. They looked cute, but they were agonizing. I sat alone on the train with bloody feet until my friend joined me at the Hudson stop, and once we got to Penn Station in NYC (where we were to get off our first train and board another one to Philly) I limped into a Duane Reade and got Band-Aids. After that, my shoes weren’t an issue and we didn’t have any problems. We also had Shake Shack for lunch, and then we were off to Philly. Once we got there, we took an Uber to the Airbnb I ordered. It was this cute condo with two beds, a bathroom, and a kitchen, and we probably had one of the best views in the entire city. We could see the whole skyline right in front of us, and it was such a sunny glorious day. There wasn’t even a screen on the windows and we could just open it up and scream out into the city. I’ll never forget what it looked like. We hung out there for a little while, did multiple drink runs from various places, and then got ready for the concert. We couldn’t stop dancing and singing Carly songs on the streets and in the stores, and we were probably really annoying but we just had to reenact the Run Away With Me music video. Sorry Philadelphia, I don’t make the rules. We had sushi for dinner at this Japanese restaurant on the way to the venue, and I was embarrassingly bad at using chopsticks but the food was amazing. Once we were done, it was concert time! We ordered another Uber, this one with a driver who referred to Philadelphia as “Filth-adelphia,” and then we were off to see our queen! It was probably about 6:30 PM when we got to the Fillmore, half an hour before the doors opened. The line was insanely long and went all the way around the block, which I was super surprised about for some reason. Even as one of Carly’s biggest fans she’s so much more popular than I thought she was, and I realized how many people truly follow her or listen to her. The crowd was mostly people in their 20s and early 30s, but there were a few older people. It was mostly gay men and girls obviously, but there were also a lot more straight guys than I thought there would be. Good for them that they’re secure enough to recognize good music, even if it’s not considered cool for people like them. Most people were dressed super stylishly and clearly put tons of thought into what they were going to wear when witnessing their queen, as did I. There were so many cute guys there but I told myself not to get distracted by them, because this night was about Carly and nothing could get in the way of that. Once we got into the venue and the security guards searched my hip new Stranger Things fanny pack, it was showtime. Although I didn’t buy anything, the merch was really cute, and songs by the likes of Lizzo, Robyn, and Charli XCX were playing in the lobby. I’m not really a partier or a club person, so this whole experience is the closest thing I’ve ever really gotten to something like that. There were so many people in such a small space, half of whom were drinking, most of whom were gay, so I guess I’ve unofficially popped my gay club cherry. It was standing room only, and extremely hot. It was 99 degrees Fahrenheit outside, and probably somewhere around there inside too, despite the air conditioning which wasn’t really doing anything. The body heat definitely made it worse, and every single person there was sweating so bad but we all managed to brave the potentially triple digit heat wave for our queen. Anyway, there was a giant shiny disco ball hanging front center stage, and we were pretty close, probably a quarter of the way back from the front to the back. My friend left to get water and she was gone for about 10 minutes, and I stayed where we were to save our good spot. I was feeling really lonely since everyone else had their friends with them and I was all by myself, but then this guy near me must have seen how sad I looked because he asked me what my favorite Carly songs were and we talked for a minute. It made me feel so much better and completely turned my mood around, and I was happy again and then my friend was back. For the most part, people were extremely friendly and I felt so safe and supported. I challenge you to find a concert with a sweeter audience. The opening act was Phoebe Ryan. She came on at 8:00 and she was really good. I didn’t know any of her music, but she succeeded in piquing my interest and now I want to check her out. The crowd was into it and it seemed like she gained lots of new fans, so good for her! Once Phoebe was done, there were about 20 minutes of excruciating waiting as the crew got things ready for Carly. Everyone was getting really antsy, but honestly I would have waited hours for her without complaining. Finally, at exactly 9:00 sharp, her band and backup singers came on stage to the opening of No Drug Like Me. She was going to pop up anywhere at any second and this was when all the emotions hit me and I was about to cry. I was about to see and hear her in the flesh with my own eyes and ears, and not through a screen or earbuds. Then, there she was. Her voice, her costume, and her energy were all perfect. Everyone went wild and I was totally wiping away my happy tears about the fact that this was actually happening. It was everything I had hoped for in my daydreams about this night going back years, and even though I had sky-high expectations that easily could have been let down by anyone else, she easily met and surpassed all of them. Her vocals were even better than the studio version and she didn’t hesitate to reach the more challenging parts, which really impressed me since a lot of her peers tend to chicken out and take the easy route when performing live. Her band and backup singers were all so good and beyond worthy of sharing a stage with her, and there wasn’t a single weak link. She had the cutest jokes and anecdotes, such as the origins of Julien, and her band played along with her so well. You could tell they were all having fun, especially her guitarist Tavish. Every single thing Carly did all night was completely adorable without even trying, and that’s exactly why I love her. I must have said “OMG she’s so cute!” to my friend at least 20 times throughout the night, half of them with tears in my eyes like a proud dad. After No Drug Like Me it was Emotion, and then Run Away With Me and so on. It kept getting better and better every minute as Carly soaked up the energy from the crowd. She just radiated all things pure and positive, and it was beautiful. Speaking of her stage presence, besides how huge the crowd was and how many straight guys there were, the next biggest surprise for me was how confident she was. I think I expected her to be more shy and awkward, but she was neither and I was so proud of her! She’s really grown so much and she made putting on such a great show look effortless. She wielded a sword, she had her band wear Carly wigs during Too Much to mimic the music video, she changed from one cute costume to the next as she let her band and backup singers shine during a trippy extended outro to For Sure, and she really just pulled out all the stops. I adored every song she played and wouldn’t have changed a single thing on the setlist. It flowed so well, the order made perfect sense, and she really chose the best possible blend of bops, bangers, and ballads. There wasn’t a single breather song where people zoned out or got bored, which is pretty impressive considering she did over 20 songs. She even performed the “men ain’t shit” trifecta, aka Boy Problems, When I Needed You, and Party For One, which made me completely stop caring about the guys that were there. Afterwards I realized there were a few songs I really wanted to hear that I didn’t (Your Type and I Didn’t Just Come Here To Dance), but it didn’t change my enjoyment of the concert at all. It was truly magical; every single person in the crowd knew every single word to every single song, even the deep cuts and B-sides, and I don’t think I’ve ever been to a concert where that happened. Some artists are artists where people will go to their concerts just to party or hang out without even caring that much about the actual music, but literally everyone there was a complete die-hard stan of her and everything she’s ever done whether that’s her singing and songwriting or just breathing and having a pulse. How crazy is it that someone with her interesting (for lack of a better word) chart and sales history can still have hundreds of people completely obsessed with her every move at each venue? The proof is in the pudding; she’s one of a kind. I sang, cried, and danced my heart out, and nobody judged me because everyone else in the place was doing the same exact thing. I found my people, and it felt so good. She dedicated Too Much to everyone who feels too much and loves too much, and considering how sensitive and emotional I am myself, it was like she was speaking directly to me. The cute little “Ooh whoa 🥰” thing she does before the chorus gave me so much life every time, and the little moments like that made every song she did so much more special. Even if you’re just a casual fan, please consider going. You have to see it to believe how good it actually is. Once she was done there was obviously going to be an encore, because what type of blasphemous heathens would come to a Carly Rae Jepsen concert and not demand an encore? People were chanting “CAR-LY, CAR-LY” from all directions and she came back out to do my friend’s favorite album track (Let’s Get Lost), my favorite album track (Real Love), and Cut To The Feeling as the grand finale. We both lost our shit at such an iconic 1-2-3 punch, because we had been waiting for those ones and finally got them. I tried not to be on my phone too much during the concert because I wanted to live in the moment, but I got the perfect video of the bridge and final chorus of Cut To The Feeling. The timing and angle were just right, no tall guys were in my way, you could see her clearly, and it captured the best part of the song and pretty much the whole night. When she did her final “And take me all the way...oh whoa,” the confetti canons turned on and it was just raining confetti while everyone was jumping around and my all-time fave was playing one of my favorite songs right in front of me. I’ve never been happier...for real. I’ve watched it dozens of times since then, and am showing it to pretty much everyone I know. If we have each other added on anything, ask me and I can send it to you! I had already decided to stan forever long ago, but I’m going to say it again for meme’s sake: we have decided to stan forever. We’ll never get sick of her ass. My friend and I both declared it was the best concert we’ve ever been to and we now love Carly more than we already did, if that’s even possible at this point. I’m now home again, and still coming off of the high and cried a few times again while writing this up. She’s never let me down and she gave me everything I could ever possibly want and more. I didn’t meet her because I thought that would be too overwhelming for my first time, but there’s always next time. I don’t really get out much honestly, mostly for dumb anxiety-related reasons, but since this went so well I’m thinking about going to other concerts once I get my money back up. Lizzo and Kacey Musgraves could be fun, and I have a few others on my list too. Traveling by train was pretty exhausting but I’m not opposed to going to Philly again; it was such a great city and the people were wonderful. Maybe I’ll even stay in the same condo again for my next concert here. The main thing I took away from this experience was love. I love Carly, I love my friends, I love music, I love Philly, I love the LGBTQ+ community, I love myself, and I pretty much love everything right now. I hope it sticks. ❤️ Tag-list: @Taylor @Sylk @Dennis Reynolds @#Music @Royale @Kuba @Divine @ajp @Ruthless Love @Madonna @Urbanov @Hylia@Andrew!

    I don't know who of you will read this. I am posting this on another forum too, where some people of this forum go too, and it would seem fair that I share my story here too. Maybe this is also a little bit for myself? I have been in a really bad place these past few weeks and maybe writing this off will help me with my healing process? I am also sorry to all of my friends on here, especially to the royal squad. I'm sorry that I was never able to tell you guys. But I just can't. Trigger warning! Do not read this if you are sensitive to explicit stuff. So yeah, I'm really REALLY REALLY REALLY sorry for putting up this facade. What I want now, is that you don't treat me differently, like I'm some kind of doll or something. Because I am not. I just needed a place to write this down I guess.

    Hi. This is the second story about an alternate history of an artist. If you want to read the first one about Madonna, click the link below. https://fotpforums.com/blogs/entry/710-alternate-history-of-madonna/ Alternate History of Mariah Carey The 90s - Mariah Carey started her career in 1990 with Charmbracelet, an album full of lovely and sleepy ballads. The lead single Vision of Success was a modest hit in Sri Lanka and USA. - The next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel (1991), was a top 10 hit in USA and UK. Mariah was praised for the single Obese, which talked about Mariah's weight issues during teenage years. - In 1993, Mariah released Rainbow. The album was a WW hit and sold 10 million copies. Not only it was successful, but also critically acclaimed. The album is known for its brave themes about LGBT community. Singles Against All Straights and Gaybreaker were no.1 hits. Gaybreaker was groundbreaking for being the first song to feature a rapper. Gay-Z in this case. - In 1996 Mariah reinvented herself. The album Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse was a departure from ballads and r'n'b sound. The album was full of Mariah's whispers and techno beats. The critics called it innovative. The album and the lead single You Don't Know How to Whisper flopped. - In 1997, Mariah tried to return to the charts with The Emancipation of Mimi album , but it only managed to reach top 40 in USA. - In 1998 Mariah formed a group called Music Box with the actress Jennita Lopezita, who got Oscar for Selena, and underground artist Beyonka. They worked on an album that was supposed to be called Caution. When the album was almost finished, Jennita stole the recordings and ran away. In 1999, Jennita released the album as a solo artist. Beyonka, who hoped that album would help her gain some success after flop EPs, went to oblivion, while Mariah has never spoken to Jennita again. The 2000s - In 2000 and 2001, Mariah Carey decided to take a break and became Britney Spears groupie. - In 2002, Mariah starred in a movie called Filter and did a soundtrack with the same title. The movie talks about a successful chanteuse who decides to quit her singing career and fight smoking around the world. Both projects flopped, but gained cult status over the years. - In 2003, Mariah released a book called Me. I Am Mariah... The Interior Designer, which was a bestseller. Apparently, interior design has always been her biggest love. - In 2004, Mariah released Are You There God? It's Me, Moo. The album was a comeback for Mariah. It was a collection of modern silky ballads about Mariah's crisis during flop years. The single Through the Rain was a no.1 hit in USA and many other countries. - In 2008, Mariah went on a world tour for the first time. It was called Larger Than Life Tour and promoted all Mariah's previous albums. Madonna's Smelly Feet Tour was a big competition at that time. The 2010s - In 2014, Mariah received a phone call from Beyonka, who offered her to buy Lemonade project, but Mariah wasn't interested. - In 2018, Mariah released her first hits compilation called Milk Me: The Greatest Hits.

    So I was looking to optimize my entertainment centre, being tired of switching cables and plugs all the time and wanting to have it all hooked up to my TV at once, and after a lot of effort this is how I did it. I took these pictures for my uncle (originally a video of me switching from device to device to prove it was possible, but that was a mess not to mention that it's a terrible idea to have that many things on at once, even for a demonstration), but I thought some here may appreciate this. So here's what it took to make this possible (obviously this doesn't include the TV itself or any of the devices): - 5-way HDMI switcher - 8-way AV switcher - 12 outlet power strip (I keep the less important devices on this just to be power efficient) - 7 outlet power strip - HDMI cable for original Xbox And here's how it's actually set up with my television: HDMI 1 Blu-ray player HDMI 2 5-way HDMI switcher - Satellite receiver (also the power source for Super Famicom Classic Edition via USB) - Xbox 360 - Super Famicom Classic Edition - PlayStation Classic - Xbox AV 8-way AV switcher - VCR (with Atari Flashback 8 running through it) - Retron 2 (NES/SNES) - Nintendo GameCube - Nintendo Wii - Nintendo 64 - Sega Genesis Classic Game Console - Dreamcast - PlayStation 2 Cable Sega Genesis So that's the whole shebang maybe some will think it's as cool as I do, or some may have some tips on how to make this better, (although I think it's about as power efficient and convenient as it could be, and I have plans to get rid of the coaxial connection for the real Sega Genesis and do away with the Classic on a regular basis altogether), say a TV that already has a good deal of HDMI and AV ports. And obviously when I inevitably get more HDMI devices, another 5-way switch box is in the card for that first port which is just the Blu-ray player right now). @Hylia @Dan @Quill @rose @LittleDudeNT5@Jake @PoisonCandy @Saiga

    The 70s - Madonna appeared in small roles of some flop movies. - Madonna and Cyndi Lauper and a few other people made a disco band called Mythological Ageism. First album Glitter Light (1978) did well, while Sepheryn (cover) became a top 5 hit. The 80s - Second album Confessions On A Dance Floor (1980) flopped. Its was criticized for being too disco in a time when disco became irrelevant. Madonna and Cyndi wanted to cover ABBA's song and said things could have been different. At this point the band broke up. Apparently Madonna and Cyndi wanted to go in different directions, but rumor had it that Cyndi was jealous of Madonna voice and couldn't take it anymore. - In 1981 Madonna released American Dream. A conceptual new wave/pop rock about America being no.1 in world. The album flopped, while Madonna called it ahead of its time. Critics said it was too cringe worthy and thought Madonna being patriotic was very calculated and a desperate cry for success. - In 1982 Madonna started to experiment and released a conceptual instrumental album called Impressive Instant. It didn't do well on charts, but critics praised its futuristic beats. - In 1983 Madonna starred in Flashdance movie and also did a few songs for the soundtrack that were released as singles.

Ghost Town became an instant classic, while Living For Love was praised for its choir and gospel elements. The 90s - In 1990, another RH single was released. Bitch I'm Madonna song was described as brave, provocative and game changing. Its video became iconic for Madonna's introduction of a new dance trend: twerking. The same year Madonna released her first compilation called Celebration, with a new song Keep It Together. The compilation did well and Keep It Together was a no.1. In Zimbabwe the single was released with a bonus song called Vague. A second tour, Veni Vidi Vici, became iconic and groundbreaking. Madonna was the first artist who changed her costumes.

Madonna blamed Orbit and they got divorced. - In 1998 her jazz album What's That Jazz went unnoticed. The 2000s - The comeback in 2001 : Madonna did vagina rejuvenation and released Like a Virgin album. The album was a big hit, just like its singles (Like a Virgin, Material Girl, Dress You Up, Hey You). Madonna was praised for exploring new themes like materialism and innocence. She was also called a new force of conceptual art. Virginity tour was a success and Madonna performed all her iconic hits. - In 2002 Madonna released Erotica, which became her best selling album (40 million copies). She was praised for her new conceptual work that talked about a frigid cyborg who desperately wants an orgasm. Thanks to a hit single Sexpress Yourself (a song about sexpressing yourself and not being a hoe), Madonna became a feminist icon. Erotica and Waiting (For Isaac Asimov) were top 10 hits, while Secret Garden peaked at no.84. - In 2003 Madonna released Sex book as a response to George Bush. A book with sexy photos of Madonna's madgina, Britney, Xtina, Justin Timberlake, Backstreet Boys and Oprah. Madonna shocked the world. People were destroying her Erotica CDs. People called Madonna old and a traitor. George Bush claimed he didn't get Madonna's intention, but he liked the book. - In 2006 Madonna released a self titled album. Madonna album, inspired by the 70s disco, was a new comeback. Everybody and Lucky Star were no.1 hits. Madonna also released an autobiography called Lucky Star.

Their album Iconic flopped. Critics called it "Fiesta del failure" and "An epic fail of epic stars". - In 2015 Madonna stated that she thinks that leaking is the future of music. UPDATE Madonna is currently working on a new album. Rumor has it that one song is called Donde Estas Los Hit Makers? and has been described as a new La Isla Bonita.

    Remember just a year ago when Miley Cyrus officially changed her name from Destiny Hope Cyrus to Miley Cyrus? Yeah, it was years ago. What I meant was, remember when she told us that she's going to release a three-part EPs which will be her next official studio album? Yeah, I remember that. Where is it now? None. Nowhere. Gone. Apparently, Miley was going to title the album as "She Is Miley Cyrus" which definitely gave me Barbra Streisand tease. However, I think it wouldn't be wise for her to use that title. Why? Because it sounds stupid as hell. She also already had an album called "Meet Miley Cyrus", why the fuck would she make another eponymous album? Maybe she's Barbra reincarnated. Well, not when Barbra is still alive and her most recent album was called Trump's Walls. Also, at least Mariah Carey didn't make a second "Mariah Carey" album, instead she made "Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse" so it's kind of destructive creative. Now, I have an idea for her. Why do I have an idea for her? I don't know why. But... ...I think the album should be titled "Cyrus" or "CYRUS" and here is the reason: - from BehindtheName[dot]com about the name 'Cyrus'. Miley is known to be a youthful woman, an independent person, she has strong ambitions and often look up toward the future as brightly as she can. I think by titling her new album "Cyrus", she can reach a higher level of maturity in her music too (if she's going to do it properly) without completely forgetting her youthful spirit. That's also her family name, so why not? Educate the AMERICANS, MILEY COME ON!!!! Also, just dismiss all of the songs that she had released prior to the album except for Slide Away. The whole She Is Coming EP was a terrible mess and she's not gaining any empowerment point by saying "Hallelujah, I'm a witch I'm a witch, I blow through ya...swish swish" . I say, she should consider to make an album that rather follow the direction of Slide Away; not meaning that she has to create more ballads like it, but rather to pay attention to the sonic aura/vibe of that particular song. Make an album that will reveal all, no lies no hides no pretense...Stripped™ So...yeah. God Bless all of you!

    04. Madonna - Madame X Madonna is willing to try something new again, but this album had too many ideas. She should have been selective a bit and ditched the autotune. It isn't flawless or one of Madonna's best albums, but it is a decent album and actually one of the most interesting and creative. It definitely seems underrated when critics overrated some other basic pop albums. Highlights: Medellin, God Control, Crave. 03. Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell! Probably a little bit overrated, because critics acted like this was the first great album by Lana. Highlights: Mariners Apartment Complex, California, Cinnamon Girl. 02. Shura - Forevher While the debut was all about the 80s, this album is closer to the 90s. Some songs still have that 80s vibe, but that doesn't mean Shura recycled the old sound. She evolved. The production is polished, while the lyrics are introspective. The album evokes the 90s r'n'b scene (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson). Highlights: Religion, Forever, Skyline. 01. Bat for Lashes - Lost Girls The best album by Bat for Lashes imo. The album is inspired by the 80s - music and cinema, the artists such as Bananarama, Cyndi Lauper and The Blue Nile, and film composer John Williams. Some songs are typical 80s synthpop, while other songs are dreamy, nostalgic and melancholic, with subtle 80s synths. Highlights: Feel For You, Desert Man, So Good.

    melanie martinez - k-12 (album review). following her 2015 debut, k-12 is melanie's first album in 4 long years, which have all been spent on this project. the album is 13 tracks long, representing kindergarten through 12th grade. i'll be reviwing this album track by track, and i hope you enjoy and please request albums you'd like for me to review! track I: wheels on the bus. this album begins with this happy, groovy tune, very reminiscent of the cry baby era, narrating melanie's bus ride to school. the highlight of this track, for me, is the second verse where melanie sings about passing around a blunt as the fellow kids on the bus go crazy around her. overall this is a very nice opener, setting a happy, campy beginning to the album, with a dreamy underrtone. rate: 9.5/10. track II: class fight. this track is darker than the previous one, describing a physical altercation between cry baby and a classmate. the production is very airy and child-ish until the chorus, bringing out a dark, downtempo narration of a fight with a class mare the repetition of the chorus is too much, but i do enjoy the verses a lot. rate: 8.5/10. track III: the principal. the listener's attention is immediately grabbed with the ringing of a phone, proceeding melanie singing about her principal over a very dramatic beat, changing at the chorus into an airy catchy, chorus, shaming the principal for every bad thing melanie write him to do. this one has grown on me a lot. rate: 9.5/10. track IV: show & tell. this track is eerie, dark perfection. melanie's voices glides across an instrumental i'd describe as a down-tempo carousel, singing about being used for another's self-gain and the down sides of fame. "show and tell. i'm on display for all you fuckers to see," melanie sings angrily. this is one of my favorites on the album. rate: 10/10. track V: nurse's office. my anticipation for this track, which was one of the first snippets released, was through the roof, and it didn't disappoint. if i had to choose any 'lead single', this would be it. this track is an instant classic, fitting in perfectly with melanie's music catalog. rate: 10/10. track VI: drama club. if i had to choose a least favorite track, this would be one of them. it feels like she just searched up 'melanie martinez type beat' on youtube and just sang over it. i think the lyrics are good, but them neither the production were strong enough to elevate this song to the same level of the others. rate: 7/10. track VII: strawberry shortcake: this pop banger is definitely an album standout. it's strong message and catchy synth-pop chorus make strawberry shortcake an essential listen for everyone, not just melanie lovers. rate: 10/10. track VIII: lunchbox friends. if you liked soap, off cry baby, you'll love this... but more. melanie sadly sings over a dark trap beat about fake friends, with a voice-deepener effect on the chorus, bringing together one of my favorite tracks on the record. rate: 10/10. track IX: orange juice. i have the same problem with this as i have with drama club, but this track is better. melanie sings about the topic bulimia and compares it to oranges being juiced. the house-ish piano production is an interesting touch. i don't have a huge problem with this track, but it's nothing special. rate: 8.5/10. track X: detention. i would describe this track is a spooky shape of you, but really good. this xylophone-like synth-led song is one of my favorites for so many reasons. one being, the creepy beats perfect, smooth transition into the sexy, slow chorus. rate: 10/10. track XI: teacher's pet: out of all tracks, this became my overall favorite. melanie usual. creepy alternative sound is met with a dark rock-ish bass, paired with lyrics describing melanie's friend's relationship with a teacher. i would describe this as a slower mad hatter or cake. the production on this one, as on all the tracks is amazing. rate: 10/10. track XII: high school sweethearts. this track starts with a slow, synth-accompanied intro, leading into a upbeat pop song, about a significant other during high school. melanie sings about what is required in a relationship with her and what she wants. rate: 9/10. track XIII: recess: recess is a weak closer for me because although it feels like the perfect closer, it's a bit enjoyable to me because of how child-ish and forcibly over-peppy it is. it pairs a happy instrumental with lyrics about not-letting bad things get to you. rate: 7/10. favorites: show & tell, lunchbox friends, detention, & teachers pet. least favorites: drama club & recess. overall review: .-12 is an enjoyable alternative pop album. it has a strong story and sense of cohesion but gets lost sometimes in it's cohesiveness, which starts to become just similarity. i'm talking about how similar the instrumentals sound in some tracks. despite this, i find myself enjoying the album a lot and excited for cry baby's next endeavor. overall rate: 92/100.

    I must have been around ten or eleven when I borrowed The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker from a family friend. It was the first Zelda I ever played. I wasn’t very good at video games at that age, and being that it wasn’t mine – and that I didn’t have a memory card for my GameCube – I never got past the first few levels of the game. That didn’t stop it from having a pretty big impression on me. It was my first glimpse into the expansive, thrilling, adventure-filled world of Zelda and I would go on to play many other games in the series – but I always wanted to go back to Wind Waker and play through it fully. Since completing Breath of the Wild, I made it my mission to play through all of the Zelda games I had yet to beat – preferably in chronological order. After completing Ocarina of Time, I was finally able to get my hands on a used GameCube and a copy of Wind Waker. My replay of Wind Waker was both a familiar and somewhat struggling experience. Unfortunately, I feel as if some of the wonder I had for the game when I was younger had dissipated, and I was treated to a different experience altogether. That being said, Wind Waker is one of a kind and really stands out amongst the other games in the series, and I’d like to lay out the pros and cons is possesses. The first thing I’d like to talk about is the style. Personally, I am more of a fan of realistic and older-Link designs, but I can’t deny the appeal of Wind Waker’s cell-shaded, “cartoony” style. It was revolutionary at its time and created a whole new look for the series that became the standard for upcoming games. It still isn’t my favorite style for a series like Zelda, but the game is truly pleasing and wonderful to look at. I applaud how colorful, atmospheric, and stunning the visuals are for the original – and especially the HD remake. When you load up the game, after the title screen, the first thing you’re introduced to is the prologue. It is simply a text with image affair, but the combination of the old, wood-cut-style artwork, the renaissance-tinted theme, and the tone of the backstory makes for probably the best opening Zelda has pulled off. It truly makes you feel the legend of the story you’re about to play – connecting it with Ocarina of Time while giving you more information in the time that has passed since then: the triumph of the Hero of Time, but the somber, daunting realization of the Hero’s failing to return and Hyrule being swallowed into darkness yet again. It adds a history that I wish was throughout the game a bit more, but it certainly sets up the game wonderfully. Wind Waker possesses my favorite iterations of some designs – particularly the enemies. The Moblins and Bokoblins possibly have their best designs in Wind Waker. They adhere to the more toony style quite well, while still being imposing and formidable enemies. The strutting gait of the spear-wielding, top-heavy Moblins strike both amusement and fear as you attempt to tiptoe past them in the Forbidden Fortress. Even the Miniblins are vicious little creatures, boinging about with high-pitched chattering as they surround you in high numbers. Another creative and interesting take on a common Zelda enemy is the Wizzrobe. These are my favorite! In Wind Waker, these evil magicians take on dark-toucan, plague-doctor appearance, appearing in your way with an alarming siren and ghostly, warbled chuckles. Even their echoed, low-pitched yell as they’re struck by your sword is appealing. Other classic enemies like Peahats (both huge and small), Keese, and ChuChus appear in unique yet familiar designs – with ReDeads being particularly effective in their slack-jawed, mummified eternal screams that cause you to freeze in terror. Wind Waker also boasts the reemergence of Phantom Ganon in his coolest design: swirly and ghostly, dark as a black hole and outlined in neon blue, a massive sword and a horned helmet. Despite the simplicity of the battle, I have always found the tense back-and-forth batting of Phantom Ganon’s fireball to be particularly effective and I’m glad we get to see him a few times in Wind Waker. What would a Zelda game be without its score? In fact, the music is astounding in just about every game – and Wind Waker is no exception. As I mentioned before, the opening theme – titled “The Legendary Hero” on the soundtrack – is an adaptation of The Legend of Zelda’s main theme with flourishes of despair and uncertainty through the accompaniment of renaissance instruments. Probably the most famous level theme of the game is Dragon Roost Island. This uplifting track is truly one of the best compositions to arise from the series; with jaunty, quick strums of guitars, percussions claps, and an airy whistle-flute singing a memorable melody. It adds a new flavor to Zelda we haven’t quite seen before – something a little foreign, maybe a little tropical – while inspiring a familiar tone of uplifting adventure, calling to mind the vibrant blues and greens of the ocean and the grass on the titular island. It’s fair to say that the rest of the game boasts other gems: while the temple/dungeons themes are more ambient, the happy, domestic themes of Windfall Island and Outset Island are some of my favorites. They inspire warmth and joy far better than any “village” themes from past Zelda games. The music that accompanies your Ocean travels, which serves as the game’s overworld theme, is pleasantly more less bombastic than it’s predecessors, but with a similar sense of excitement. The subdued strings and horns with a steady marching drum beat pairs perfectly with the sailing adventure. The general gameplay is where I’ll probably get more into the cons than the pros – but lets meet in the middle for now. The islands that make up the games levels generally have an “outside” portion and an “inside” portion, with the “inside” areas being a little more invested and often leading to the dungeon or temple you have to beat. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but the shortness of the “outside” portions was a detriment for me, because I enjoyed the scenery and interaction with the environment in those areas – particularly on the Forest Haven. That being said, the actual levels and islands of the game are overall very satisfying to play. The difficulty level is pretty low. My only criticism of the controls is that Link is fairly quick-moving and with the camera not always linked to your advantage, it can cause some problems. Whenever Link hits a ledge, he takes an enormous leap of faith off of it. I don’t think I died once in this game from enemies, but I did unintentionally jump to my death on a number of occasions. My biggest issue with the gameplay is actually what makes it special: the ocean and the wind waker. Unlike it’s predecessor, Ocarina of Time, I would say that Wind Waker returns to the general open overworld dynamic of most Zelda games. You can’t play any level in any order you’d like in terms of the storyline, but the map of the open ocean is fairly free to explore in any way you like. This is a good thing, but the fact that it is an ocean is at times detrimental to the accessibility of the locations – specifically paired with the wind waker. In the game, you have to use the wind waker to set the direction of the wind in order to sail. This is a fairly realistic dynamic, and I understand where they are coming from, but this gives you a directional handicap that at times makes it difficult to truly explore the open world freely. If you need to turn ninety degrees – or, god forbid, turn around entirely – you will most likely have to break out the wind waker again to change the direction of the wind so you can move. The reason why this was such an annoyance to me is because most of the islands on the map are fairly small, and sometimes on your journey you see multiple places on the horizon and in your peripheral that you want to check out, but the wind prevents you from going from one place to another with free will. There were many times where I found myself wanting to turn around, or circle around an island (especially if I was coming at it from the wrong angle) but the wind got in my way. This ultimately prevented me from doing a lot of exploring that I usually try to do in all of my Zelda experiences. Battling enemies on the ocean is a nightmare. Most of the time I found myself avoiding them altogether or jumping over them, but there are certain areas of the game that forces you to deal with the enemies in your midst. The directional limitations I just mentioned are often at your disadvantage when dealing with enemies. While they move freely around you, you’re forced to mainly stop in your tracks to battle them. You cannot move while using your main seafaring weapon – a cannon – anyway. The cannon is oftentimes a struggle to aim and use against multiple enemies at once. Getting hit by an enemy attack sends Link flying from his boat into the water, which only adds to the clunky nature of the fights and prolongs it even further. Some lower-level grievances I have are finding treasure chests. Link procures treasure charts along your travels, which allows said treasure to appear as a little glowing ring on the ocean when you are around it. However, the closer you get to it makes the glowing ring disappear and you have to rely mostly on your ears to sense how loud the shimmery sound effect of the treasure is before trying to anchor it up. This can often lead to many trail and errors of sinking your anchor only to hit nothing, moving an inch forward, and trying to get the treasure once more. I often found myself leaving the vicinity until the glowing ring appeared once more and repositioning myself to try and get a better shot at approaching it once more. More important treasures (like triforce shards) appear as a pillar of light in the water and disappear even sooner as you approach it than normal treasures. It wasn’t until the end of my playing experience did I realize you can open your treasure charts and just align your cursor to the X on the map for a more accurate hit. The ocean itself is a joy to sail in if you’re just coasting from point A to point B. The design of the waves, the wind, and the sky are beautiful to look at. I applaud Nintendo for trying out something new for their overworld, but it was mostly a miss for me in terms of gameplay. Towards the end of the plot, Link must find the broken shards of the Triforce of Courage – quite similar to what you have to do in the original Legend of Zelda. In the GameCube version, you have to find eight triforce charts, get them translated, and then get all eight triforce shards. This was a little excessive in my opinion, especially since finding the triforce charts consisted of fun puzzles and challenges of skill – which was actually one of my favorite parts of the game – while actually finding the triforce shards was just more treasure chest hunts in the ocean – which we all already know how I feel about that. I’m sure I could go even further into what this game offers. Although it may seemed as if I harped on a lot of things about this game, to assume I dislike it is far from the truth. It is still a tightly made and enjoyable game. The dungeons and temples aren’t as challenging as those in Ocarina of Time, but they aren’t so boring to be unenjoyable. The Forest Haven and Wind Temple are two of my favorites, while the final battle with Ganondorf actually felt like I was having a sword fight with him! Teaming up with Zelda to defeat Ganondorf was satisfying and was a great gameplay dynamic. The colors, themes, and designs of the islands are vibrant and appealing. Wind Waker also introduced us to the Rito and Koroks, two additions I love, which have since appeared in other Zelda titles. Like I said, I could go on and on about what I love about this game, along with some things that irked me. Is it my favorite Zelda game? No. It is in my top three? Probably not. But, as a Zelda game, it is already miles ahead of many and one I would still put in as one of the most enjoyable games to play or watch.

    I've been wanting to do this for a while and it was fun (and also stressful). I left out Glitter cause I cba to listen to anything but Loverboy Anyway, let's begin! 11. ...What do you lambs see in this album? You know that thing non-fans say about Mariah, that "all her songs sound the same and her voice really isn't that good"? That's how I feel listening to this album. I listened to it in order and it was pretty hard to tell where a song ended and the next began, and her voice doesn't sound good at all! Minus Obsessed and It's a Wrap, I find this album an extremely tedious listen. I even dislike the song being covered on it, although it's far from my least favorite song she's covered, which we'll get to later. 10. This shouldn't come as a surprise. It's comparable to Memoirs in the sense that I find it extremely boring minus 2 songs (You Got Me and Boy [I Need You]), but the main difference here is that at least she sounds good on Charmbracelet. Also Boy (I Need You) is so much better than the original Cam'Ron song Oh Boy that she deserves heaps of praise for turning that mess into something listenable and, dare I say, cute. 9. Of Mariah's "good" albums, this is the most overrated. Although on my re-listen of it, I didn't dislike it so much. It's really just an album I don't feel the need to listen to in full. Ever. The two or so times I did were enough. Dreamlover is one of my favorite Mariah songs and Without You is one of my favorite covers of hers. However the biggest drawback to this album is that awful stain on her discography: Hero. Do people like Hero? I personally haven't met anyone that does. Yet it's one of her biggest hits. Why? What do people see in it? It's awful! The rest of the album isn't "bad", it's just a little basic and I'd rather listen to any of the albums listed above this one. 8. Now we're onto the albums I will actually admit that I like! This is a solid debut. It showcases all of her talent and she makes it all seem so effortless! Most artists don't come to the spotlight a full on artist in their prime, but Mariah did. Vision of Love and Vanishing are two of my favorite Mariah songs, Vanishing being one of my all time favorite songs. Actually fun fact, one time I was having a panic attack at 2 am so all I could do was listen to music and try to calm myself and Vanishing did a big part in helping me calm down. So yeah, that song means a lot to me, but I also find it to be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. That being said, this album as a whole feels very dated. It's definitely an album that was made in the early 90s. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I need to be in a certain mood to listen to it in full. 7. This album didn't grow on me until recently, but what a fun experience it is! It's extremely consistent in it's sound (which is a sound it turns out I really like) and it has a good amount of funny Mariah-isms to keep me entertained. She's also not trying to do anything she can't on this album (ie screaming too loudly despite the fact her voice is deteriorating). I like that she knew what she was capable and kept the yelling to a minimal. She sounds great on this album and it's a very enjoyable experience as a whole. 6. I thought this was my third favorite, but apparently, I was wrong. Don't get me wrong, I still love this album, but how MC2 grows on me with each listen, Rainbow dulls a little bit. Also, this is the album with my least favorite cover song! I do not like Against All Odds, and even Mariah can't change my mind on that. However, a select few songs solidify the number 6 spot on my list. I'm a sucker for the Me and My Girlfriend sample in How Much, Bliss and Petals are gorgeous, dreamy sounding ballads, Heartbreaker is one of my favorite of her number 1s (and music videos), and Crybaby might honestly be my favorite vocal performance from her. Those mid-range riffs towards the end make my panties wet every time. 5. Surprised? So, I've been working on this ranking for WEEKS. The main reason for that was I didn't know where to place this album. One of the big reasons I love Mariah Carey so much is I love big, loud pop singers ballads so for me, this album is a GEM. This album gives me intense ballad after intense ballad and every single one is just ear candy (is that a term?). One of my favorite things to do is listen to big ballads really late at night and lip-synch intensely, so this album is absolutely perfect for me. The reason I had a hard time placing it is because it's different from her other albums for me. It's one of the most enjoyable while not being one of her best. So I had to choose how I was gonna do this, by enjoyability or how good I actually think the album is. I decided on enjoyability because this album is awesome and I love every second of it, even though most people won't see the magic I see in it. 4. What a comeback this album is in terms of quality. While I do really like MC2, I needed that one to grow on me. This one didn't need growing at all. Her voice sounds better than it has in years (Memoirs, I'm looking at you) and I love the fuck out of so many of the songs on here. The Art of Letting Go is somehow one of my favorite ballads of hers, Make It Look Good describes so many guys I know and is just a fun bop to listen to, and #Beautiful deserved so much more because it's, well, #beautiful. I never expected to like this album as much as I do, but I am extremely happy to tell people it's one of her best. 3. I had a similar problem with 3 and 4 as I did with 5 and 6. MIAM has more individual songs that I love listening to, but as a whole, I like the sound of Emancipation better (in terms of the music, remember what I said about MC2 and how she wasn't doing anything she couldn't do anymore? The shade was directed at this album specifically). Despite the fact that I have more bad things to say about this album than the one I ranked previously, I do still believe this is a better album. This was the album where she started to have a more urban sound, and I think it was perfect on this record. Every single from this album is absolutely fantastic and so easily recognizable. Songs like Fly Like a Bird are absolutely gorgeous and Get Your Number makes me wanna dance while I'm walking down the street. I can't think of one bad song from this album, it's a great full listen with lots of songs with repeat value. 2. Numbers 1 and 2 tend to be every lamb's top 2 picks as well. With good reason though, these 2 albums are her vocal peak. But before I get into number 1, I'll talk about why I love this album. Fantasy is one of my favorite number 1s of hers, I love that sample. Always Be My Baby, while a little creepy when given a second of thought, is super cute and always fun. Open Arms is my all time favorite cover of hers, the first few times I listened to it, I honestly didn't know it was a cover (I really don't care about Journey though). Forever is easily one of my favorite ballads and songs of hers as well. BUT, and the but here is a big one, I HATE One Sweet Day. I don't want to get into why because it's really just me and how I react to sentiments in songs, but I can't stand it. She sounds great, Boyz II Men sound great, but I find the song unlistenable. Other than that, this album is a great listen, and her voice sounds absolutely incredible. 1. What? A Mariah fan chose Butterfly as her favorite Mariah album? What unconventional taste! Anyway, this album is as good as everyone says it is. This album has a) Honey - my favorite Mariah number 1 b) Outside - my favorite Mariah ballad c) Breakdown - my favorite Mariah single And while those three alone are enough to solidify this album's spot at the top of my ranking, the rest of this album is still incredible. The Fourth of July, The Roof, and My All are all absolutely beautiful songs and The Beautiful Ones is a fantastic cover of a Prince song. Also all the songs I didn't mention are also great, those are just the ones I like most. There isn't one song I dislike on this album and every second of it is absolutely gorgeous and worth the top spot on my ranking. I feel like I get really carried away with my opinions so if you actually read this, thank you, also if you didn't, thanks for checking it out! The next ranking I wanna do will probably be Green Day, which I imagine most people won't be interested in, but I'm gonna do it anyway although I'll probably wait for the new album to come out and do something else no one cares about in the meantime

    LET'S GET TO IT (1991) Serving as Kylie's fourth and final album with PWL, it is apparent in the ever-maturing sound Kylie wants to move away from her classic PWL roots that brought her to fame. She pushes the controversial boundaries in experimenting with more sexual lyrics and much darker pop than what the past three albums had held. Pete Waterman described working on the album as a 'nightmare', and while retaining a few tracks that are very classic SAW like 'Give Me Just A Little More Time', 'Word Is Out' took the album theme in a different direction. The video for the opening track and lead single was provocative in that a daytime version had to be cut for mid-day music television. Becoming her first single to miss the UK Top 10, the public was seemingly a little unhinged at the fact this cute little post-television soap star was now expressing herself. An alternative Summer Breeze mix was commissioned for the Australian single and used in place of the original on the album itself. 'If You Were With Me Now' was a cute ballad, but now often thought of as too Disney - although it did reach #4 on UK charts. Failing to chart in Australia, they made its international B-side 'I Guess I Like It Like That' the A-side, and most copies issued in a plain black sleeve. 'Keep On Pumpin' It', while not an album track nor released directly under Minogue's name, but rather British duo Visionmasters, gained writing credits from 'I Guess I Like It Like That' due to its sampling of her vocals from the track. It was thought it would be a big club hit, but the single barely scraped the UK Top 50 at #49. 'Give Me Just A Little More Time' was released as an early 1992 single, with B-side and super 90s house banger 'Do You Dare?' having two remixes being commissioned for the release. The original track, which remains unheard, is said to feature verses and harmonies, was a lot different to the remixes that were created. To round off the singles, April 1992 saw the release of 'Finer Feelings', which was redone for release by Brothers In Rhythm, one of whom, Steve Anderson, would go on to be Kylie's long-term musical director and close friend, and still is to this day. Another fantastic B-side was released along with this single, house track 'Closer' is a standout in her PWL catalog and a strong favourite. In Australia, "Finer Feelings" became her lowest-charting single at that point, reaching number sixty on its debut in the ARIA top 100 singles chart for the week ending 5 July 1992. "Finer Feelings" remained Kylie's only single to miss the top 50 in Australia until her 2010 single "Get Outta My Way", which peaked at number sixty-nine. Overall the swingin' soul vibe of this album was a perfect way to tie off her years under the PWL label and depart from Stock, Aitken and Waterman songwriting. SAY THE WORD - I'LL BE THERE (7/10) Serving as the B-side to Kylie's very stunning but also very experimental 'Word Is Out', this light ballad spotlights her strong vocal ability and is very soothing. The backing choir is very reminiscent of her earlier albums, but there's no doubt this is a lovely little track. The lyrical aspect is a little basic but the label has gained their traction in choosing B-sides correctly, and this fit the B-side stigma to a T. It provides the backbone for the hard-hitting Word Is Out and it's done that job well. DO YOU DARE? [NRG Mix] (10/10) Introduced with a very sinister and gaining intro, this house bop slowly builds up and by the time it reaches full speed you just want to dance!! This timeless but nostalgic song also showcases her amazing vocals and screams nineties! The piano and synth throughout the track are executed perfectly. Do You Dare? is worth a full 10/10. Something that never gets boring or old, and another one of the most left-field tracks out of her PWL catalog. CLOSER (9/10) With an aurally confusing intro for your brain's metronome, this is Do You Dare's slightly calmer cousin. This fairly dark track also features Kylie's heavy breaths and midway through the track a strong bass kicks in which always manages to remind me of the Cherry Bomb intro. This track epitomises Kylie in the Let's Get To It era. This isn't about teen relationships and short-term anymore - this is mature, sexual, and slightly raunchy, while not overdoing it or being 'slutty'. 'Closer' provides her soothing, slowed vocals with a beat that you can't not dance to! Might be doing Kylie Minogue and Impossible Princess tonight - keep an eye out

    Britney Spears // Glory Like many of us, Britney was more or less my first foray into pop music, but probably not in the way you'd expect. Up until high school, I'd listened to mostly alternative / rock / basic straight white boy music. I didn't touch pop (or rap) at all, but my bus ride to school was almost an hour each way, and the driver always had pop radio on. So, I started getting closely acquainted with it. My first pop album download was Circus, and I didn't like it. I had not yet found the light. As I got more into pop, I went back and listened to Britney's discography, in reverse. I started with Circus, Blackout, and made my way back. I didn't get as attached to her first few albums, maybe because I lacked the nostalgia of growing up with her music, and I maintained that Circus, Blackout and Femme Fatale were my Britney trinity. I have since gotten more into ITZ and Britney (the album, obviously), but those remain my favorites. Let's not even talk about The-Album-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. I was actually driving home from that TV job (the one where I met New York) around 1 in the morning the day Make Me was released, so I listened to it on repeat most of the way home. Sexy midtempo Britney was here, and I was here for it. But the feature is trash, let's be honest with ourselves. As we got the promo singles, I somehow became simultaneously more and less confident in what the album as a whole would be. I liked each track, but they each had a fatal flaw that I couldn't unhear. Make Me was the G-Eazy feature, Private Show didn't really feel like a studio track at all, Clumsy's was the horrendous mixing for the breakdown and the flimsy-feeling production, and DYWCO was the shouting men in the chorus. Did we not, as a society, learn our lesson after Focus? I was still excited, mind you, but I did have my concerns. Thankfully, those promo singles were largely the most lackluster songs on the album. Let's dive in. 1. INVITATION - 4/5 Wow, what an album opener. This is something you straight up don't hear from Britney, and I love it. Even the vocal effects feel stylistic, instead of messily covering up some phoned in vocals. They're tender, but they feel right. 2. MAKE ME FEAT. G-EAZY - 3/5 Don't get me wrong, this song is boppy, but it's not lead single material. And the one feature on the entire record is wasted on someone as bland and basic as G-Eazy. Take him out, put in someone better (or don't put in anyone at all) and it would be better. 3. PRIVATE SHOW - 4/5 I genuinely hated this when she first dropped it. It was messy, it feels underproduced, like I'm listening to a "live" version of a song instead of an album track. It has since grown on me, though. It's something completely different for her, and I can appreciate that about it. Plus it's lowkey kind of catchy. 4. MAN ON THE MOON - 5/5 The production. The vocals. The message. Everything is slick pop perfection. The oo-oo-oo-oo-oooonnn in the chorus is absolutely infectious. 5. JUST LUV ME - 4/5 I was super excited to hear this after that snippet leaked. Hearing the full thing, it's a catchy midtempo DJ Mustard track, is there really anything else I can say about it? "I'm not gonna ask for a sip when I'm thirsty" is a great lyric. I wish the chorus was a bit more dynamic, but I get it; we need to know the words after just one listen, so Repeat Stuff. 6. CLUMSY - 3/5 The "oops!" is cute but the breakdown kind of kills any momentum the song has. Meh. 7. DO YOU WANNA COME OVER? - 3/5 I want to like this song, because the production is good, she sounds good, the verses are good, but that chorus -- bleh. 8. SLUMBER PARTY - 5/5 I know some people thought this song felt too topically samey right after DYWCO, but I actually really like that about it. It feels like a proper followup to the question it's definitely a standout track on the album, probably my first favorite really. The casual f-bomb is perfect. The production and melody are SO catchy. 9. JUST LIKE ME - 2/5 OKAY STOP WITH THE FUCKING TERRIBLE CHORUSES PLEASE. The song is reasonably cute but the chorus is awkward as shit. 10. LOVE ME DOWN - 4/5 Okay now this is something I can get into again, something very stylistically different for Brit but it fucking WORKS. 11. HARD TO FORGET YA - 4/5 Once again I find myself wishing the chorus was a little more dynamic, but goddammit this song is still a banger. The production on this album is super interesting, it feels like there's a lot going on without being overwhelming. All the little bits and bobs circling around during the verses here give this song a great texture. 12. WHAT YOU NEED - 4/5 Yes this sounds like a Burlesque track, yes it doesn't have a post-chorus payoff like you're probably expecting, but I could listen to Britina growl all damn day. She's not Whitney Houston (and she doesn't need to be), but I think we can all agree it's nice to hear her flexing her vocals for a change. "That was fun", yes it was Brit, yes it was. 13. BETTER - 5/5 Alright we've clearly got some Kygo influence here, but that's not a bad thing. This song is cute as fuck, and the production is (once again) on point. Another general album thought: let's all take a moment to appreciate that she isn't drowning in background vocal layers for the first time in nearly 10 years. She's actually here y'all! 14. CHANGE YOUR MIND (NO SEAS CORTES) - 4/5 Anyone else kinda getting a chuckle out of the fact that Revival was largely midtempo with one random Latin-influenced song, and the same thing is happening here? Not trying to start a stan war or anything, just sort of a funny observation. Anyway, this song is good as fuck, and the chorus is absolutely perfect. I don't speak German Spanish but I can if you like 15. LIAR - 5/5 YES. YES. YES. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS PERFECT, WHY IS THIS RELEGATED TO BONUS TRACK STATUS? 16. IF I'M DANCING - 4/5 Production is spastic and completely out of left field, but it's not a bad thing. I can see why it's a bonus track, but at the same time I'm here for it ya know? Also this: 17. COUPURE ÉLECTRIQUE - 4/5 I genuinely am not sure how to rate this one. I don't understand a single word of it because I'm an ignorant monolingual 'Murican, but it's cute. Her vocals are sweet and the production is good, so I guess we'll go with a 4. OVERALL - 4/5 I'm so happy she's back. Not just physically there, but she actually seems invested and present in the material in a way she hasn't been for many years, and she delivers a great pop record as a result. The producers work with her voice instead of covering it up, the album feels fresh, and I can tell it's going to be on repeat for a long time. Good job Brit, welcome back to the big leagues.
