Lorde - Solar Power

Not open for further replies.
I think I was just hoping for 11 and a half "Cologne Cerrone Houdini"s with this album, and the album is a cute girl (I'm actually one of the biggest defenders of it compared to others), but maybe I just think it was too muted. I'm perched for the bonus tracks, as I just didn't bother before.
I am curious about the bonus tracks. I haven't listened to anything from this other than Mood Ring since it's release.
The Fallen Fruit video is also bad. The videos have been abysmal this era. The lack of flavor is just wild.

Her music videos were never excellent or anything but her past ones got the job done. These new ones are just so bland.

She needs to Super Bass the bonus tracks into singles with videos to give this campaign a shot in the arm. Fallen Fruit as a single choice needed some radical, insane video to make it worthwhile but um…chile anyways

A radical insane video would have been kind of weird for Fallen Fruit though. The song is pretty boring IMO.

Are they looking for it to sound good? Cause it does.

The majority of professionally produced songs sound good. Ed Sheeran's music technically sounds good. That should not be the bar, especially not for Lorde.

Both bonus tracks do a good job of reminding me how enjoyable the music is when I park my expectations. They’re great and -

This whole time, I've been playing it coy
The city's falling for me just like I'm Helen of Troy, ah

- is such a great lyric Lorde. A lovely little throwback to Pure Heroine, when she was all bravado.
Oh yeah Magnets was great (and a total banger still!). Teams is cute in a Tumblr aesthetic teen whatever moment videos from that era are.

Lorde thrashing atop her escalade bathed in red light (cmon SYMBOLISM) as the driver has a smoke is a moment. As is J*ck appearing on piano in the bathroom from Candy Man. It's a simple video but I think she nailed the feel of the song/album without having to spell it out nn.
Mood Ring is a fantastic song… but the video is like a parody and she doesn’t realise. I’ve only watched it once but I couldn’t keep a straight face.
