Yeah Yeah, Uh-huh, Ooh Yeah: The Alt Pop Girls Rate (WINNER)

    No, no I'm just messing with you. Her new gig as #1alsey has officially revoked her status as an alt pop girl and therefore has spared us from having to drag ha flop ass from one side of this thread to the next.

    As all of you probably know, every once in a while, the PJ hunties get together to decide which of the big pop girls has come out on top in the latest cycle of albums. It's a glorious tradition that brings out the best and worst in respective fanbases to facilitate lots of meltdowns and draggings intelligent and passionate discourse over some of our favorite artists and their output.

    This got me thinking. What's the group with fanbases that are almost as extra and volatile as the big pop girls? Why not do the same for the latest cycle of pop girls who flopped commercially court the critics and tumblrites of the world rather than the charts? I love them. You (hopefully) love them. We constantly question why they don't get the recognition they deserve. I'm here to give them their day in the sun. (Sure we're just a bunch of people rating songs on a forum, but these girls are in no position to turn down whatever small victories they can get.)

    Whether it's Marina's verbose quirkiness, Lana's somber obsession with daddies and yayo, Grimes' ucanny knack for making a catchy racket, Shura's social anxiety-driven 80s synthpop, Banks' witchy-meets-sexy-meets-creepy R&B tinged jams, or Tove's rather heavy handed brand of ~edgy, we've all been dazzled and touched by their music at one time or another. Much of the time, you'll find me preaching on the forum about how we should just let everybody be great in their own lane, but fuck that. It's officially the time and place to pit these artists against each other. Happy hunger games bitches.

    THE RULES:

    - Rate all the songs with a score between 0-10.
    - One song and one song only may receive your coveted 11.
    - Decimal points are allowed, but don't do tiew much, because then I'll just round it off anyway.
    - Commentary is encouraged and appreciated!
    - Troll ballots will be disposed of.
    - Please send me the songs in the order I have given them to you. IF you decide to do some alphabetical shit or other nonsense, I will shame you.

    I'll be expecting your scores December 21, 2016. Good luck....and don't fuck it up.

  4. Shura and Tove might as well pack up now, they are so out there depth here. Banks too but I still love her.

  5. This is my moment.
     
    VivaForever, R92, Island and 3 others like this.
  6. Yath! Here to defend Grimes, Banks and Shura! And Tove if I'm being charitable. Kii.

  7. Ready to defend Hennymoon (and possibly FROOT, if this forum's collective opinion on it is anything to go by) against a probable, inevitable wave of middling-to-low scores.

    This also gives me a reason to finally listen to the Banks album after buying it on release day.
     
  8. Here for most of this.

    Sorry Grimessy, you're going down.

  9. I love Marina and Lana ! And I felt in love with Lady Wood yesterday and i can call it my most favourite on this rate ! But Banks , Grimes and Shura are all new to me , so maybe I'll send my ballots at the last minute !

  10. I already know my scores will be a mess and a half.
    Not on my watch!
     
  11. Fine, California will get a 6.5 and Scream is getting a 10. Happy now?
     
  12. Love everyone in this rate, except Banks. That's only because I don't really know her music to be fair. Will be defending Queen Marina the most though.

    In fact @Petty Mayonnaise you should have people pick their fav and keep a list of what queen they are rooting for most.
     
  13. Is it too early to call Flesh Without Blood as the winner?

    Lady Wood is going down in flames. I actually think Froot might be my second least favorite here, depending on how I feel about The Altar any given day.

    #TeamShura. Honeymoon is definitely the weakest here, not too impressed by Lady Wood either.

  15. So many 10s.

  16. Queen of taste. I'm so glad for the 21st December deadline, I'll have plenty of time to write some essays.

  17. The first 3 were in my top 5 albums of last year and the latter 3 are still in my top 5 of this year. Sure there's a few duds but even my least favourite of these albums is still stunning!
     
  18. I haven't listened to any of these albums excluding FROOT and Honeymoon but I love them both a lot & this will be a good chance for me to discover some new music along the way.

  19. Queens.

    Ready to defend Shura for my LIFE. (and ensure Grimes gets top ranks)
