    It's much better than Homecoming Queen but it's also kinda terribly written? The lyrics in the chorus feel so clunky. This could've been great with a full re-write. Eh.
  2. Wait at this potentially becoming my new Friday night anthem. Can’t wait to hear this at the clerb.

  5. New album, 'Kelsea' will be out March 20th with the pre-order/pre-save coming on Friday.

  6. This is fine I guess?

  7. I don’t think the third time will be the charm. It’s a shame Unapologetically was given up on when they had Get Over Yourself and Roses right fucking there.

  8. Unapologetically had one of the most baffling singles runs in recent memory. Both songs you mentioned felt like such obvious smashes too.

  9. I'm sad she's gone down this line of basicness. LA is... not good.

    I'm diving in ladies.
  12. I can't get on board with this record at all. The songwriting on much of it feels so awkward to me. Sad about this because Unapologetically is one of my favourites of the past few years. I like "club" a lot, and "needy" and "half of my hometown" - but the rest of it is really not what I'm looking for.
  13. I’m halfway through and it’s cute. Some nice bops but nothing so far that matches the likes of Miss Me More or Get Over Yourself.

    I love this.

    This album is so unfortunate. I don't want to sound rude or cynical, but there's such a strong whiff of Ed Sheeran-ism about all of it, the kind of clunky and forced writing that constantly references anxiety and not fitting in with the ~cool kids~ and whatever. I'm not trying to say that Kelsea isn't allowed to write about anxiety and the things she's going through, but it comes off more as Spotify bait rather than genuine honesty.

    Welp. We'll always have Unapologetically I guess.
