  1. Okay.

    Right.

    'Overthinking' won.

  2. My Boy, My Town Mabel is probably never going back, and if she will, it would be a pleasant surprise. But otherwise I would say get over it, cause you're going to be disappointed.

    I feel like this song flopping must’ve done a number on her team/label at the time.

  6. Honestly I feel like High Expectations is a bit underrated. It’s not groundbreaking by any means, but revisiting it it really is bop after bop with a couple moments that do feel like somewhat of a balance of early Mabel and pop star Mabel.

  7. Bop. Early Mabel was a very, very exciting artist. It actually felt like she had *a* sound and a niche to carve out for herself. Everything after Ivy to Roses sounds like Anne-Marie/Zara Larsson/Ava Max/Becky Hill/[insert every other disposable pop starlet here], it's a shame.

    That said, I do love the album cover - it's a lovely photo and a striking colour combo. Is it weird though that after all this time, I still don't quite know what she looks like? As in, I'm staring at her album/single covers and I genuinely don't think I'd recognise her if she slapped me in the face.

    Edit: I hadn't actually listened to Trouble before, that's not a bad song at all!

  8. I forgot how much Trouble sounds like Ariana’s God is a woman.
     
  9. Speaking of Early Mabel, this remains her best song. The promise she had was startling.

  10. Thank god the council aesthetic has died out for popstars who have never lived in one.
     
  11. Easily her best song. Sounds like a lost Monica track from '96.

    This is the most comfortable I've seen her during a performance. The pre-recorded vocal probably helped her focus on choreo (dd)

    Yeah, while nothing mind-blowing, her live performances lately have gone from comical to compitent.

    I don’t know about anyone else but Overthinking is very throwback to early Mabel for me? Her best song for ages I’m obsessed now.
     
  15. That long black hair is everything. Looking stunning, Mabs!

    OK but we need this goodwill to translate to the general public. x

    Cover looks great on a physical copy.

    Ok I'm actually perched for the boppery of this album.

  19. Obsessed with Overthinking. She really dropped the single of the year when no one had faith anymore. Perched for the album.
