'Cry About It Later' and 'Teary Eyes' are properly incredible.
Is the HQ non-vinyl rip of High On Your Supply out there yet?
This truly is such a wonderful album. I wanna sit with it more before I definitely say it's my favorite Katy album, but I do already feel like it's her best. The opening run of the first four songs especially is honestly her best, at least since One Of The Boys. And I made it better by putting Small Talk between Teary Eyes and Daisies to make it an amazing 5 track run.
There's literally only one song that I'm not head over heels in love with and thats 'Tucked'
May have to snatch the blue vinyl from Target tomorrow.
Wait at this being entirely wonderful? Add Katy to the list of pop gals who have blessed us with an album almost fully replayable this year.
Besides Never Really Over and Daisies (which I already loved), Cry About it Later, Not The End Of The World, Champagne Problems and Only Love are the highlights. Resilient and Smile are only two I'd probably not keep.
This was actually my takeaway.
It's an ironclad collection of cute bops, taking you through various sounds and trends of all of her previous albums. It's a bookend of sorts, neatly reflecting on her career. The naive rawness of Boys, the candycoated bops of Dream, Prism's more reflective moments and the 80s sheen of Witness. I've been critical of it not necessarily being the album I would have expected to follow Witness, but also given the circumstances of its release it's also kind of just like... why not this album? She has time to reinvigorate herself creatively later on.
Well Cry About It Later, Teary Eyes, Tucked, Only Love and High On Your Supply are some of the best songs of her entire career. Why none of these were released as singles is beyond me, but they truly are discography highlights.
Is it just me who's underwhelmed?
She delivered a very solid album. Yeah it doesn't have any really "big" moments like her other albums, but there's a batch of really lovely songs in here. "Only Love" is probably my favorite and the run of the first 4 songs is among the best on any of her albums. Teary Eyes deserves to be pushed as a single. Well done, Katy. It's a nice album that goes by fast and is great for the times right now while also showcasing Katy's capabilities. I don't think she's ever sounded better and more confident than with this album.
"Teary Eyes" is very 'sunset in Ibiza' feels and makes me miss a dancefloor like nobody's business.
Resilient is awful, but I'm waiting to hear the rest.
"Smile" the single, is serving "Party Ain't A Party" teas. Made me add the Queen Pen track to my Spotify.
Cant quite get over the quad punch opening that is 'Never Really Over' - 'Cry About It Later'- 'Teary Eyes' - 'Daisies'
Dagny’s “Coulda Woulda Shoulda” should have replaced “Resilient”.
I want to be at the roller disco with Tucked playing right now.
I adore 'Resilient', that middle 8 is phenomenal
Cry About it Later is kinda copying Dagny again dddd.
