Sun Goes Down is also really such a beautiful song and video. The main singles have been bops, but that release fully laminated my stan card and revealed his potential. Definitely feels more indicative of the entire album in retrospect when a lot of these lyrics are more dark and he's sitting in emo-rock influenced production.

If the project wasn't self titled, Sun Goes Down would be a great option.
What a fucking debut!!! I'm gobsmacked. It's like it was made by someone who thought they were never going to get to make another album, so they weren't going to leave a single thing to chance. He's really thrown his whole soul into this. It's... blisteringly confessional and uncomfortable and agonisingly close to home at times, which I wasn't expecting at all. And all without sacrificing pop sensibilities while also dipping into countless different genres?

I'm honestly completely besotted. It's the album of someone who has had the exact idea of what he wanted to do for ages, and it has been executed with the joy of finally seeing all that come to fruition. So much of the album and most definitely the era and the visuals feel like a feverish Stan Twitter dream, which makes sense considering that was the fire that forged him.

Potentially album of the year. What a fun, affecting ride it is.
This is fantastic! Although I feel like I won't return to the singing songs as much as the rapping ones.

Scoop is definitely the one! Dolla Sign Slime and Dead Right Now are also huge. Doja and Megan bodied their verses. Call Me By Your Name and Industry Baby still pop the fuck off, even more so within the context of the album.

Also thank god the collab didn't happen but is he really surprised Nicki didn't respond to him after he denied being a barb throughout the entire Old Town Road press circuit? Obviously we know why he did that now but we know how petty she is. Add the fact that he collabed with Cardi right after dd. Anyway, truly a blessing in disguise.
Everything just sounds and looks so good. It's so solid and I'm so happy to have him around and being so unapologetically gay and himself with his music. It's so nice to see him break past the whole "one hit wonder" everyone expected him to be. The fact that he has only kept challenging himself and what he puts out since Old Town Road. My only gripe is... he/his team need to drop some physicals/vinyl preorders!
I love this album. That’s What I Want is going to dominate the rest of the year and is 100% going to become my favourite song by him. What a video too, every singe video he releases makes me appreciate him more. Lost In The Citadel & Void are the early standouts also. Industry Baby continues to pop all the way off too.

Please release a vinyl soon.
It's an odd, new feeling to feel so proud of an artist, not for beating the odds and reaping the rewards of their talent and hard work (as we do with so many pop girls), but for just being queer, and being so in such a glorious, unashamed way, and everything that means for us and our society. The album is so rich—glossy, funny and clever bravado and a starkly honest account of the insecurity, loneliness and pain behind that. Above everything, the way he's literally manifesting the whole universe he dreamed for himself is awe-inspiring. What a thrill to witness it.
