    This would've gotten a 9/10 score from me since I'm actually a sucker for this type of music. I know, I have failed you by failing to rate the non-compulsory albums.

    audience member: take off your cardigan!!!

    tegan: you take off your cardigan. *laughs* no wait, no don't, don't take it off. someone flashed me at a show a couple weeks ago and i'm still- sometimes i'll sit down to go to the bathroom and my eyes will drift closed and then that will appear. no no, unsolicited boobies, noooo. it's like back in the late 90s early 2000s when everything on the internet you went to porn would pop up. like everything. remember that era? some of you may be too young. it was just like no matter where you went, you would sign into your mail and it would be full of porn. it was a very dangerous time. sometimes our shows feel like that, you know. i'll step on stage and i'll get tricked. now i don't answer my name on stage, someone can scream my name for the whole hour, i will be slightly agitated by it but i will not look because they trick me. they're like "tegan!" and i'm like "yes" and they're like *mimes flashing, then shakes head and covers eyes* no. it's terrifying. anyway, this one's for the flashers out there. i appreciate your body confidence and your aggression.

    #48. Guilty As Charged 7.64

    HIGH:
    10.00 x 4 @Ferk @Petty Mayonnaise @Posh Spears @Remorque
    LOW: 6.00 x 4 @2014, @digitalkaiser, @First2Run @Jwentz,
    MY SCORE: 8.00

    ALBUM: Heartthrob
    WRITER: Tegan


    Yeah I don't know how this beat How Come You Don't Want Me, but you all remain a mystery to me. Guilty as Charged is pretty much like I Run Empty for me- nice, but a tad long. The synth line is the best part of this for me, plus Sara's backing crazys. But overall definitely deserving of its bonus track status. Anyways, I have yet more gif commentary from @Petty Mayonnaise (10):


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I need Tegan & Sara to be famous enough for an Oprah interview, by the way. @digitalkaiser (6): "I love the cinematic nature of this song, with the strings and four to the floor synths in the background. For a mid-tempo song it packs quite a punch. While the song is really beautiful, I haven’t connected with it as much as the others on this album." I don't really hear any four to the floor on this, but we can go with that. @constantino (7 is accurate, as he usually is: "This is wonderful, but not right for the main album. As far as bonus tracks go, this is sweet, but compared to the standard tracks, this is filler." Oh dear... we've all pissed off @Posh Spears (10) again: "Wow. Literally the first time I heard “...cause you’re on my mind…all the time...” I had to throw this a 10. I absolutely adore the production! One of the best songs on an already amazing album." What does @eccentricsimply (6) have to say for herself? "Eh...." I don't think that's going to make @Posh Spears feel better n n n. @Slice of Life (8.5) makes a totally unique joke about my username that I've never heard before: "I have always loved this little bonus track. But it feels like it lost some of its luster now that I don't relate to its sentiment now. The line "I am yours but you can't be mine" used to choke me hard (and even inspired me to write a poem kii) but now, it doesn't hold that much power. Obviously I'm still giving this a good score maybe because of nostalgia? Oh nostalgia, you beast. Kii." You're a poet and you know it. I can't believe you let @Sprockrooster (9) read your poems and not the rest of us: "Love the lyrical playfulness."



     
  3. This is another one that I was ambivalent towards up until last year or so. I love it now but yeah it didn't deserve to make it farther than 'How Come You Don't Want Me'. Welp.

    BEFORE ANYONE COMES AT ME FOR IT - Heartthrob has my second highest average and this song is literally my lowest rated song in the album.
     
  7. Probably me first looking at my commentary for that song. I just hope Tegan hasnot forgotten my stannage for Our Trees.

  10. Also, I feel like I would of rated the last track out a bit higher, but that sentiment seems to be my MO here.
    I blame my tegan and sara kick coming AFTER the rating was done because of @ohnostalgia's wonderful write-ups, context and banter. Silver linings.

  17. "Encircle me. I need to be taken down."
    Is fucking me up right now.


    I am listening to my personal playlist and I am slain. And hearing Like O, Like H again and having a total moment again with it is making me more appalled we lost it.

    Do you know @ohnostalgia if the majority from the voters was already acquainted with their music? I am asking this because with my Texas rate there were more voters who didnot know their music and that created odd placements to put it lightly. If that is the same here I can understand Like O, Like H placement. If not. You all are a sad excuse for fanbase. Oh and I was new to their music in case some of you didnot know.

    I know that @Ferk @LE0Night, @digitalkaiser, and @Jwentz were (besides me). Could be a few others too, not 100% sure.
     
    Ferk, Sprockrooster and LE0Night like this.
  19. So that basically means more new listeners? All is forgiven and forgotten. Why this change of heart from me? I am listening to Closer now and who can stay mad when this is on. Queens of putting a smile on my face in my darkest moments.
     
    Ferk, send photo and ohnostalgia like this.

    Yes I think it's mostly new listeners. There are definitely some upcoming results that I'm pissed about, but I will say don't count all the old songs out just yet.

    Tegan & Sara songs will grow on you like a fungus. I didn't fully appreciate albums like The Con or Sainthood when I first heard them either.
