  1. That's too bad. I was hoping she could make up for last time nn.
     
  2. The giant ass cheeks just couldn't be ready on time.
     
  3. Haters spamming the New York Times Cooking app with negative reviews smh.
     
  4. Hopefully.
     
  5. So when's the next single nn
     
  6. 2025, probably.
     
  7. For someone who is such a student of pop, it’s fascinating how her last two campaigns have been largely disasters. But at least with Melodrama the music made everything worth it.
     
  8. Eh the failings with Melodrama were kind of out of her control.
     
  9. Don’t want to sound too cliche but this album does seem to unfold it’s beauty after a good couple of repeats.

    I think the horrific British summer initially held me back from being open to this beautiful sonic landscape Lorde has created for us. We finally have some sunshine in London today & I’ve had a hit of the PAX, thrown my shorts on and taken the dogs for a languid long walk round the park with Solar Power as my soundtrack and suddenly I get it! I am in her fantasy and I don’t want to leave.

  10. The calendar year wait for the Melodrama vinyl was a scream. It's a shame that they appear to have got that right this time, but I have no intention of buying one
     
  11. I wonder how many Solar vinyl copies would have been sold if it wasn't for preorders.

  12. Worth the wait though! Definitely one of my most luxe packages.

  13. The Man with the Axe keeps swinging at my heart with every single listen. Some of her best lyrics ever and one of the album's most gorgeous and vulnerable vocal deliveries. Spellbinding.
     
  14. The Popcast episode on this is pretty good. They don't love the album but it's a pretty thoughtful and measured assessment of her intentions and creative choices.

  15. I finally got to listen to the album. I had only heard Solar Power from the singles because I wanted to hear the rest of the songs as a whole body. The first single is the worst song of her career even if it becomes tolerable while listening in the context of the album. The whole thing is a vibe with some strong melodies on The Path, Fallen Fruit and Mood Ring. It's not her best album but all songs are growing very quickly with repeated listens. It's a very discreet and introvert album. The weak link are the lyrics which left me cold at best and made me cringe at worst. Overall I enjoy the album for what it is and I'm curious to see if I will come back to this more in the future.
     
  16. This album had me in a chokehold for like 10 days, it’s cooled off a bit now but this heat may have me blasting The Path on repeat x

  17. The album is not perfect but The Path , Secrets and Mood Ring are inside my best songs of the year.
