I’m with you on all this as a sentiment. Some of her most difficult moments are among my very favourite, and ultimately I want her to keep pushing the boundaries she’s so good at pushing. I’m just not feeling these new tracks as much as some previous ones - but also they have things to them I like more than certain other recent tracks too. Because she makes difficult art, I think part of appreciation and criticism (in the true meaning of the word) will lead to elements appealing more to some people, or just outright working better for some people. And that’s so important. Her albums are like walking through a multimedia contemporary art exhibition - you’ll leave going “ x or y pieces really struck me”, but knowing there’s parts that either didn’t resonate or you want to give more time. And on a basic level I also just love her voice and would love to hear it used differently.
