Phew, the excellence.
That vocal arrangement at the start of what doesn't kill me is pretty gorgeous. I'd kind of like to hear an a cappella version that uses that throughout.
What Doesn’t Kill Me did absolutely nothing for me on first playthrough and now I can’t stop going back to it.
That "camera roll" - "easier said" - "hookup scene" sequence is towering over the rest of the album for me.
I do think some of the more upbeat songs earlier on, while not poor by any means, are... less worthy of an album with this amount of expectation behind it and peaks as high as the songs named above (and the title track). They just don't feel very essential.
The chorus soars more and more a with each listen, both smooth and empowering. I adore it.
Fine no Dr Luke and a couple blunts!
I've settled on really enjoying this while also believing some ideas needed to be consolidated to lean out the tracklisting. I like everything here but there's no need for 15 songs when multiple cuts feel more like vignettes than fully realized songs.
I also realized this isn't even in my top 5 of the year and that feels disappointing.
I was just coming here to say that, I looove those male harmonies. I wish they were used more in the song.
I love every single one of these 15 songs and for me they are all essential. So there’s that. ALSO the film is incredibly camp and i absolutely loved it.
Wait...I love this? I had written Kacey off as I found the hype around her and her persona on social a little annoying post-Grammy win; I really had no interest in this at first but I really like it and enjoy the new, darker mood from her. It's not as instant as Golden Hour but it's maybe even more cohesive.
The album has no fillers. It's a fact girls.
I'm really enjoying all of this, especially "Easier Said". Stunning.
Her performance at the VMAs was really breathtaking, the vocals are just so angelic. I want a full livestream of that.
This album is as good as Golden Hour for me. Which is mind blowing as albums like that come once in a career if that - and she just did it again. The talent!
I think I'm here in terms of the songs
Spoiler: gay rankings
there is a light
if this was a movie..
what doesn't kill me
gracias a la vida
keep lookin up
I'm enjoying the album (although not even close to Golden Hour) but her version of Gracias A La Vida is trash. I've removed it from my tracklisting.
Her vocals on that song are so clean, what a a track.
The visual for it in the film really elevated it for me.
Speaking of the film, is there still nowhere to watch it in the UK?
Work prevented me from listening to this for a bit, but it is absolutely divine. The way she can destroy me with hookup scene and then have me full scarlettjohanssondancing.gif to what doesn’t kill me…her mind. A home run.
