FKA Twigs - Magdalene (2nd Album)

  1. My preorder downloaded this morning but I’ve been waiting for the right time to listen. This feels like an album that demands my full attention to absorb it properly

    The twig snapped a bit.
     
  3. I'm usually kinda averse to "mood"-leaning music, despite recognizing it's merits, but I'm loving this right off the bat.

  4. Definitely needs full attention because there are so many emotions and nuances in every song. She did not come to play this time. I’m gagged
     
  5. Every song is giving me strong Mandalay vibes (obscure but not if not you're a Madonna circa-2000 fan reference), especially Nicola Hitchcock's vocals. Gorgeous obviously, I'm still letting it all sink in.

  7. Sad Day is that girl, fuck. Really though the whole thing is brilliant.

  8. I hope alt-fags twenty years from now talk about Magdalene the way we talk about Hounds of Love/Homogenic/Vespertine now.
     
  9. It's obviously an excellent album, but I'm not sure I see myself returning to it all that much.
     
  10. Home With You is a game-changer. Mirrored Heart is an instant classic. Those two are it for me.

  11. Well I not had time to play this to death but from what I’ve heard today, it’s absolutely beautiful!!!

    ......not sure I agree with her slagging off TV dinners though, they really pretty special.
     
  12. “Sad Day” video coming soon according to her IG stream
     
  13. Me too, so very much.

  16. Wow I just keep experiencing all these amazing artists this year that I never really followed and the albums they are releasing.....whew! I’ve never listened to any of her songs before and this album is massive.

  17. Home with You made me start crying. It's weird, I'd heard it before but maybe in the context of the album it just hit different. I wept for pretty much the entire album. Very cathartic in a way I haven't experienced with music in a long time.

    Home with You, Mirrored Heart, Fallen Alien, Daybed, Cellophane and Sad Day are the ones.
     
  18. Cellophane, Sad Day, Fallen Alien, Mirrored Heart, Home with You and the title track are the ones for me

  19. Crazy that she filmed the video for “Home With You” over a year ago before the album had even really taken shape.
     
  20. I'm obsessed with Mirrored Heart. Really obsessed.

    I don't know if I can listen to this in public like I usually do with music because it'll be weird if I just start randomly crying on the bus, right?
