Rina Sawayama - Hold The Girl

  1. I feel like Ayu is all over this album... I haven't listened to Forgiveness without thinking of her song that shares the name!

    I was trying to think of what song specifically the piano riff reminded me of and I can't quite place it, but flipping through her discography, there's soooo many songs thats remind me of this album.

  5. I'm already salivating over the thought of a project in the same vein as "STFU!", "Your Age," "10-20-40," "Alterlife," "Frankenstein," "Ordinary Superstar," "Who's Gonna Save U Now?", "Dynasty," and "Bees & Honey."

    I need Rina's punk, nu-metal opus. Give us If I Can't Have RINA, I Want Power.
  6. How has "Flavor of the Month" not surfaced yet

    I read that as "the mother lake called Elton"

    I kinda wish these tweets were a little more insightful and a little less 'the whole album is really heavyhanded and earnest, so now I'll just be very tongue in cheek for contrast, slay!'. Swear I saw some track by track interview quotes earlier but not sure what those were from?

    I fucking adore this. I think people weren’t expecting how earnest and cheesy they were but that’s why I love this so much. It feels like the true successor to Born This Way in that it’s eagerly earnest, oftentimes hamfisted, and relishes in uncool sounds nostalgic to the artist, but synthesizes it into something so unique and heartfelt that you can’t help but adore it. It’s messy, ambitious, and clunky, and I don’t want it any other way

    Oh I think that's what I saw somewhere. App only I assume? (I've never seen 'cards' on there before? Where do I find these?)

  18. I want to add in to the chimes of this all sounding very Ayumi Hamasaki and I AM HERE FOR THAT.
    This album speaks to me on so many levels.

  19. bye
  20. And yes, Holy is basically an Ayu track. The instrumental is basically lifted from
