Lykke Li - EYEYE

  1. I know a lot of fans wanted her to continue where “so sad so sexy” left off this album returns to her sounding more vulnerable and intimate which I am here for.

    Happy Hurts and ü&I are the standout tracks for me the way she just layers her own vocals to create something haunting yet tender.

    I loved the previous album but have welcomed this album and nod to her older material with open arms looking forward to seeing her live again.

  2. I’m stuck on her Carousel and I don’t want to get off.

  3. I was so into 5D until the line

    Is there anywhere we could be 5D?

    And my brain decided to change it to

    Is there anywhere we could be farting?

  4. Can’t wait to listen to it. She never disappoints.
  5. Great first play, must admit I was little disappointed that she wasn't building on So Sad sound, but this is rather beautiful.

  6. Slightly disappointed because I expected this to be some kind of pretentious indie experimental art project but I still like this!
  7. I think this actually lands at the perfect intersection between Wounded Rhymes and I Never Learn. As much as I like so sad so sexy it did feel like I Never Learn: B Sides outside of a couple songs. This is a far more exciting project and positions her in a space where it feels like there's more room to grow and refine, even if it isn't entirely different.
  8. Dare I say this might actually be my favorite Lykke album? I’ve always loved her lower key songs like Unrequited Love, Sleeping Alone, I Never Learn, etc. and the album feels like her completely tapping into that energy. Listening to the album as a whole, it’s so beautiful - I understand where she was going with it all now.

    Do I think she could have fleshed it out with a song or two more? Sure, it feels a bit short… But maybe less is more when she’s committed to such a specific vibe. It’s an upgrade from So Sad So Sexy for me.

  9. This is gorgeous, but I think its brevity only works to its advantage. I can only mourn for so long.

    She really is a special artist. No dips in quality in her entire discography.

    The perfect soundtrack for walking downtown on a cold sunday night, it made me feel a lot of things other than just the regular fear of getting mugged.
  12. Love, love, love! What a complete body of work.
  13. You Won’t Go Away is murdering me.
  14. Ü&I…whew! It’s pouring with emotion and the production is truly immaculate. When the song becomes a funhouse, a prism of endless vocals looping and wrapping in on each other, almost like reliving the last moments of your relationship over and over again, it’s breathtaking.
  15. The album is so, so good. What a return to form after so sad, so shitty. Every track is it’s own perfectly crafted little wonder (pause to reflect on the superiority of short albums! All albums should be 9 tracks long!) and I’m surprised by how instant it is - the title/cover was giving obtuse and solemn but it’s actually all elegant, glittering pop. J’adore.

  16. The idea of anyone disliking, let alone hating, so sad, so sexy is genuinely baffling to me.

    Oh no you don't.
  18. This is a very slow burning album, not sure how I feel about it right now. I think its very beautiful though!
    So Sad, So Sexy is best in her career for me. Sorry about it!

  19. I want to live forever in the last 90 seconds of CAROUSEL
