    It’s a cute song and I’m loving the deeper vocal!

    This whole album slaps. Ain’t My Business is such a huge banger.

  6. I had never warmed up to any of AlunaGeorge's releases but since "Warrior" entered my life, I've been cautiously optimistic about this album and on my first listen I had reason to hope! "I've Been Starting to Love All the Things I Hate" is a fabulous opener and "Envious" feels like a hidden hit. Her working with KAYTRANADA is genius
     
  7. OK, this album is making several points. Ain't My Business and Don't Hit My Line are absolutely stellar. The former feels like an actual lost classic from the mid '90s. Sneak and the opener are great too. So far I'm enjoying even more than the (also very good) Disclosure record.

    I don't know why they released Get Paid or Body Pump, everything here is better.

    The album's out? Envious has been really doing it for me so I'll have to dive in, I adore her voice.
     
  11. Envious is it.
     
  12. This is a wonderful collection. Stacks up to the 2 AlunaGeorge albums perfectly.

    I like how the album builds up, climaxes, and has a comedown. The sequencing is perfect.
     
  14. Can someone fix the thread title?

  16. The opening song makes me feel a hell of lot emotional. Like seriously, Aluna is truly one of the most underrated artists ever. Three albums in and it’s a constant delivery of bops. On ‘I’ve Been Starting...’ she is the most vulnerable of the whole record. She really has been through a terrible time in this industry, as documented in interviews and she has come out on the other end stronger.

    I’m so grateful to call myself an Aluna fan.

    I haven't heard a UK dance/electronic album that sounds this vibrant and charismatic since...Little Red I guess? I loved both of the AlunaGeorge albums, but Aluna really just brings something else entirely to these songs.

    I'm guessing Mad Decent don't have the budget for a proper promo blitz, because almost all of these songs could be huge if they pushed them.

  18. Getting both Disclosure and this album on the same day takes me back to summer 2013. Banger after banger.

  19. Yeah. This album is incredible... going to be on such heavy rotation for me.
