  1. 'Happy', 'I'm a Ruin', 'Blue'. FROOT blows its load early.

  2. It's more like it blows several loads through-out the whole song.

  3. I don't read pervious pages so any news for a new album?
  4. I meant the album.
  5. FROOT is one hundred percent her best album.

  6. Well, the post is still relevant.

  7. I'm A Ruin, Forget, Gold. Weeds is a close fourth. This album is so good.
  8. The good tracks on FROOT are really, really great, but overall it's not an album that left me impressed or wanting me to replay it.

  9. I think whilst it definitely starts remarkably strong, there're still great tracks throughout the entire thing. But then I love Solitaire (my favourite slowie on the album, even more so than Happy), Can't Pin Me Down and Weeds very nearly as much as FROOT and I'm A Ruin.

    My top 3 would probably be FROOT, I'm A Ruin and Weeds, if I had to say, but really it's one of only two albums in the past 2 years that I've not just cherry-picked my favourite tracks after the first two listens, chucked them on a playlist then barely remembered the rest. It's great from start to finish. Even Gold and Better Than That (the weak links for me) are like 7/10. It's unquestionably her best album. I really hope she comes back to music soon.

  10. Savages is the misanthropic bop that can be only done by her.
  11. I still play FROOT to this day and haven't grown sick of the album yet. I love how her music has longevity especially in such a disposable climate. The only track I wouldn't willing listen to is Weeds, I always wanted I'm Not Hungry Anymore to take it's place which says a lot about Weeds when all I've heard only 14 seconds of INA.

    I'm a Ruin, Happy, Blue, Gold, Savages & Can't Pin Me Down are regularly on rotation. I can't pick a holy trinity when 11 out of the 12 tracks are genius.
  12. The albums out at midnight on the 25th. There's going to be three songs released per week. It's a visual album.

  13. 'Gold' is fantastic. 'Savages' is the main duff track.

  14. I think it's Weeds or Gold that I can't stand.

    Was it your first time listening to the album? I had the same reaction when I first listened. Went back to it a few months later and it clicked.

  16. Gold is still the shining moment for me but over the past few months, I'm a Ruin has come back to haunt me in the best way possible. Still utterly gorgeous.

  17. It literally took me about 20 listens to love it. I'm SO glad I persisted with it because I didn't get the fuss at all with it for ages.

    I love when that happens because those albums usually become some of my all time favourites. It feels so rewarding, I don't know.

  19. Absolutely. It has a kind of ethereal depth to it that puts it above the others. I'm A Ruin and Solitaire two of the most gorgeous pop songs ever IMO.
  20. It's a great album but I just don't feel that I'm the right position in my life yet to fully appreciate it? Like, I related strongly to The Family Jewels because I was going through a similar self-hate situation at the time, then Electra Heart was pretty parallel to me as well. But with FROOT, it's such a free, positive album (I'm A Ruin aside) compare to her last releases and I don't think I can truly connect with it because of this reason, though I am positive it will happen soon enough!
