    Bright Light Bright Light - Enjoy Youth

    They're cute. It's all very silly but the music's the most solid it's been in a decade, I'm really looking forward to the album.

    Dua Lipa - Radical Optimism

    Yup. the more I sit with it, the better it gets. Not a single skip anymore.

    Drake - For All the Dogs + General Discussion

    This is all awful. Like, actually awful, in a how the f is no one putting a stop to it kind of way. I just read the lyrics of 'meet the grahams' and 'family matters' and, like... there are some places that you just don't go. Fuck both of these people, how low can one get? And for what? A bit of...

    Aly & AJ - With Love From

    Wait, not Hothouse, but the OTHER album? The one with The Good, Bad and Boring on it?

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    Yeah, performance was a lot better than expected, and that big belt at the end ties the song up where it previously felt loose and unfinished. I think he'll do well.

    Dua Lipa - Radical Optimism

    I am weirdly invested in this doing well, especially now that it doesn't seem like it is. It's a perfectly nice album with a handful of really good songs (Houdini, Happy For You, Falling Forever, These Walls) and there's something so refreshingly grounded and normal about her presence in the...

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    NO! Go away with your reasonable argument and mature attitude and ability to person properly. We ain't having any of that here!

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    Ah, yes. If you mean acknowledging the prejudice, discrimination and often violence that Irish people have faced in the UK historically and up until very recently, then yeah, I very much stand by that. Painting that as some kind of 'all lives matter' kind of statement 'feels both dishonest and...

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    I genuinely just went back over my own posts for 20 minutes to find the one which could have been interpreted to say that (I say interpreted, because I recognise the systemic component of racism very well and would not have knowingly said otherwise) and couldn't, so I suspect you're confusing me...

    Drake - For All the Dogs + General Discussion

    This is all sordid and Drake can absolutely burn for all I care, but considering Kendrick is widely regarded as the master rapper here, why is The Heart by far the most sonically enjoyable of these tracks?

    Olly Alexander / Years & Years - "Dizzy"

    Ah, it would be just lovely if Olly Alexander refusing to sing his anaemic little songlet at Eurovision or Selena Gomez buying Costa instead of Starbucks, went and fixed the entire Israeli/Palestine conflict overnight, wouldn't it? Twitter's hare-brained brand of performance activism, where...

    Sarah Whatmore

    I don't know if this is helpful, but I just checked my library, and I have the whole of the Living Proof album in an m4a format. I have no recollection of how I acquired it (I remember chatting to Sarah and her sending me some files, but it's possible I found some other ones elsewhere after)...

    Taylor Swift - The Tortured Poets Department

    For her next album she should definitely drop all metaphors, that's a great idea. But why stop there? Challenge yourself, woman! No choruses, and keep instruments to a minimum. Don't emote. Just found noise and throat singing through a wall of reverb. Show us some real artistry for once.

    Taylor Swift - The Tortured Poets Department

    Ok, but whoever said earlier that she sounds like she's asleep and not sufficiently emoting.... are we listening to the same thing?

    Taylor Swift - The Tortured Poets Department

    I'm only two songs in (Florida and Daddy I...) and I can't move forward because of wanting to hear them again and again. Suffice to say, I'm not worried about liking the rest. I actually agree with most of the criticism in this thread, and this album is in no way new territory for her, but...

    That's fascinating, thank you both!

    Music Industry

    https://www.musicbusinessworldwide.com/universal-music-group-generated-51-of-2023-recorded-music-annual-report Quite an interesting read overall, but this in particular really bewildered me. I'm not a fan of K-pop and am aware of how little I know about the entire eco-system, but I have at...

    Will Young - "Falling Deep" + Light It Up (Aug 9)

    It's great song! Derivative as anything, but there's a strong melody and lovely ad-libs. What else could one want from Will Young (or anyone) 25 years into his career?

    Taylor Swift - The Tortured Poets Department

    She's taking the royal cosplay to new levels and I love it. Girl's got zero chill.
