Only Love needs to be the blueprint of whatever she does next.
This is miles ahead of Witness and I’m only a few songs in so far.
I half expected Tucked to be a thinkly veiled metaphor for having Orlando's penis tucked between her legs, so it's a surprise to have such a straightforward bop!
I think this is a bit of a mixed bag, at the moment though Smile itself is easily one of the worst songs here. I feel like I'm gonna be taking half the album and running. The campaign itself though has definitely been worth it if nothing else.
That “i can see that you’ve lost the light in your life” hit different on my 06:00 tram to work this morning. I sure have. Surely have
Smile really does stand out on my first play through, it doesn’t fit with the other tracks. Glad Never Really Over and Harley’s made the final tracklisting!
I fucking hate "Smile" but I sing the chorus unprompted in my head about four times a day so
Only Love just completely scalped me. Best song on the record!
I literally wrote and put out a song about someone taking the light out of me and name checked her as an inspiration and then....... bam.... mum
Love champagne problems. This is easily her third best album
This is pretty comfortably her best album (Teenage Dream is obviously iconic but some of those tracks...)
Resilient is the only one I’m not feeling - will probably swap that out for 365 if I reshuffle the tracklist in a playlist.
THESE ARE SO GOD DAMN GOOD
I can't help but hear the background music of a certain porn ad in the instrumental of Tucked and it is so distracting.
I love the animated videos, they’re quirky and kitsch without being too much - it feels like she finally struck the right balance. They could have made a really cool connecting series out of those.
I love how they're all completely different styles - I'm so excited for the rest!
I smile a lot but I also hate it here.
Have you heard of different standards? Obviously I can think a Casacada song is great and a Beyoncé song is bad while still understanding that Beyoncé is on a whole different planet than Cascada. So while Gaga disappointed in many ways Katy surprised in many ways which makes her a better popstar in this climate. Does not say much about the overall quality. It is really not that hard to get.
I can image this ending up my favourite Katy album. Not that that means that much.
Teenage Dream is still her best album but Smile can sit comfortably next to her big sis. It's this weird blend of cohesion, more so mood than production wise that holds it together. "Teary Eyes", "Tucked" and "Only Love" are the best that aren't the singles.
Speaking of the former album, I still don't know a better opening line than, "You make me feel like I'm losing my virginity, the first time, every time, when ya touching me".
I mean... It does fit.
It's a really solid and consistent album. Something I can put on and enjoy the whole way through. I don't love it but I foresee myself playing it a shit ton just like I did Chromatica because girls, she needs easy bops to survive these days.
Gonna give the album a few more run-throughs while I clean today but Teary Eyes and Tucked are the best bops of the bunch outside the singles so far.
Picked up my Target Exclusives and the Diddy version of Smile also made their exclusive Blue Vinyl.
