Lorde - Solar Power

  1. The key change doesn't really sound earned you know?
     
  2. That whole argument is hilarious. It's like saying I can't enjoy listening to Britney repeatedly sing about how much she wants a good shagging because I'm still a virgin. I feel like the whole point to a lot of music is escapism.

  3. I can't enjoy LoveGame because I'm not a bottom ":(" Won't they think of the tops!?
     
  4. ^I agree with the above arguments, but I feel like I understand the emotion that makes people feel negative about a track when the relatability is not there for them, especially when it's an artist they previously connected with. The attitude ultimately doesn't make sense and it limits artistic agency, but I could definitely see somebody who related deeply to Melodrama having a bit of a "what the fuck is this shit?" moment.

    Still, there's so much music out there that one can relate to that there's no reason why one artist should be boxed in.

    I can’t relate to a lot of Melodrama. I’ve never waited for a green light (gays don’t drive!!!), never been sober, never made dynamite at home, never been to the Louvre. Such a shame cause it sounds like a really great album.

  6. Melodrama is an interesting album for me in that I don't relate to a lot of the specific experiences but I do relate quite a bit to the emotions behind them. That's not really happening with Solar Power but I can still appreciate it as a bit of witty earcandy.

  9. Call me basic but the song does hit differently when the sun is burning outside.
     
  10. I hate the summer. Can't stand the hot.

  12. Haha yes. The apartment complex does. I hope it gets less busy soon because I want to drop my cellular device in the water.

  16. I think Lorde's pretty much the definition of an album artist (which is fine) so that's a really good result.
