I actually quite love some of her lyrics, but maybe I just buy into hr schtick too much. Alone and Sorry feel like genuinely strong moments, lyrically. Despite the dramatics of her natural personality and the drama in singing about a on-and-off years-lasting teenage relationship, she's still a 22-year-old person, so I don't find the earnestness off-putting and more-so endearing. I mean, she even says on the album that she doesn't know how to speak without screaming. Tracks like Lie, Walls Could Talk and Don’t Play not being produced by the A-list producers she now had access to but Lido was shocking at first, but they feel like an obvious direction their work was heading with Tokyo Narita Freestyle.
