the instrumental bridge with her background wailing
Cackling at this Genius description:
The conceptual mixtape comes from an inner sanctum of heartache and vibrant love – an emotional cocktail bound to produce powerful art.
Isn’t it beautiful? The faint sound of peak stan tomfoolery coming from afar?
I love how modern this sounds. It has that chill, low-key vibe that’s much more than 2017 than 2012 when the mixtape came out. Something something ahead of its time.
In this song Tinashe goes in on her ex. No holds barred. No fucks given. Her delivery is everything. It’s what a person who’s had it, officially, but still wants the sweet taste of revenge in their mouth should sound like. And she doesn’t disappoint one bit. If only it popped off a bit more, it’d be faultless.
(3) isn’t going to be pleased with all this praise: “This is quite a slog of a track, doesn't go anywhere, Tinashe sounds bored, just a terribly boring track.” Her delivery is on point’t though! TRAVVV
(7.5) brings up something I didn’t have the opportunity to experience in the past. It’s not a reality check to frame my current minor annoyances as just that and not some insurmountable mountains I'll never get to overcome. “You haven’t lived till you’ve seen this live (long live the Aquarius tour)”. I’m not saying I’m seething but my chances of seeing her live in the near future are so slim I’m totally seething.
What are you doing constantino
(7)? Only I can mention completely unrelated popstars in here! “Rita Ora and the rejuvenated America’s Next Top Model team are shaking.” Are you more of a Mogul, a Megastar, or a Mentor? Why does this sound like an actual personality test I’d totally rig just to get the result I want? To put an end to this uncoordinated mess,
was this close to giving this his 11. But only handed a 9: “Had the Ryan Hemsworth remix been included in the rate I would've seriously contemplated giving it my 11, it's otherworldly. It's the reason that I discovered and subsequently fell in love with the Queen! Alas, it's not included but this is still a fucking jam in its original form. And for good measure we can listen to and celebrate the wonder of the Ryan Hemsworth remix, when the bass kicks in around 0:41 I am legit in ecstasy:
” It’s a bit too messy sounding for my liking, but I’ll make you all judge for yourselves. I feel like the excellent cold anger of the original gets lost in the mix. Thanks goodness we’re not done with the good sis Ryan in this rate quite yet.
