  2. The remaining Allie Hughes songs and whatever the hell "Elevator" is can go next.

  3. Collxtion I and Super Sunset remain unbothered! Taste.

    All Hughes tracks are overdue, and neither That’s So Us version needs to be stinking up the top 30.
     
  4. All of Allie Hughes needs to go! Unsolved needs to lose a couple more as well.

  5. Casanova Demo and Not So Bad in LA... the clock is ticking, girls. Also expecting Madame X soonish? Not that I'd necessarily agree with that last one

  6. Umm... Not So Bad In LA and That's So Us are stone cold classics? Paper Love can do one!

  8. Noo I love All The Rage.
    It plays at my job, randomly.
     
  9. All the Rage is what happens when Allie Hughes EP is left unsupervised. I don't hate it though!
     
  10. The opinions I'm being exposed to in this thread... my skin is ITCHING.

    Y'all don't get this brave in her actual thread, at least not that I remember!
     
  11. Wait until my commentary on Bitch!

    Let’s kick off the top 40...







































    Only 2 of you called this result exactly right...

































    40.

    Casanova Demo

    Average: 7.670

    Total Points: 291.450

    Total Number of Voters: 38

    My Score: 8

    Highest Scores: 10 x5 @fatyoshi, @RUNAWAY, @Petty Mayonnaise, @Andy French & @Pinky25, 9.5 x2 @daninternational, @aux 9.25 @Glitterizer, 9 x5 @Phonetics Girl, @sfmartin, @imaduck, @ohnostalgia & @Trinu 3.0

    Lowest Scores: 5 x3 @slaybellz, @finito & @Verandi, 3 @Ana Raquel, 2 @Hurricane Drunk


    @Cutlery and @boombazookajoe called this result we’ll just have wait and see about their other predictions. This demo just highlights perfectly how amazing her craft is and how brilliantly written Casanova is. One of the standouts from Unsolved to make Collxtion II and I’m so glad it did otherwise it would have been a real shame to not ever have the bop version too. Naturally I will gravitate to it in full on bop form but hearing it with only the piano gives this song a completely different feeling. I think the lyricism has more agency than its bop counterpart. Also Miss Allie is serving some serious vocals and honestly I’m living for every bit of it.


    RUNAWAY (10):

    “this version bowled me over the first time I heard it, and I was praying she would finish this song. This version still stuns me every time I listen.” To quote Mariah that was a classic.

    Pinky25 (10):

    “Personally I really love the demo piano version.” This demo is brilliant but my heart belongs to bopanova more.

    daninternational (9.5):

    “Didn't expect this to work quite so well as a piano track” Honestly I think all of her bops could work as piano only songs and that’s purely down to her talent.

    imaduck (9):

    “VOCALS”

    [​IMG]

    collxtion (8.5):

    “Get. This woman. A Grammy.” I wholeheartedly concur.

    Gemini (7):

    “Her vocals really are a stand out in this even though it's just a one take quick demo. You can see the framework for the final product here. It's one of her best songs, I will gladly accept it in any form she gives it to us (Except that damn duet.)” She is serving vocals for days but in the best way possible.

    Cutlery (6):

    “Bless this one for being reworked and pretty much overhauled. I don’t like it in this form.”

  13. I mean... Dang. Even for a demo I think this should've outstayed some of the others still remaining but okay. I'm hoping main version Casanova doesn't get axed early too.

  14. Some of the stripped tracks were very rough to be honest. There's a dramatic difference between my score for this and the final version, which should not go anywhere for a while.

    Elevator

    Average: 7.700

    Total Points: 38.500

    Total Number of Voters: 5

    Highest Scores: 10 @RUNAWAY, 9 @DinahLee

    Lowest Scores: 6.5 @BubblegumBoy, 6 @Ana Raquel

    Thankfully the summery reggae bop Lifted is still safe for now but instead it’s a song with a title with what I would refer to as a lift. But honestly I’m not sure that Elevator is the 3rd best Allie Hughes song in the rate nor do I think it’s deserving of getting this far overall. It went absolutely nowhere for me which also basically sums up my entire thoughts on the Ladies and Gentlemen album. The revised version that she performed live that was due to be on her unreleased album The Hard Way is hardly an improvement either. This result does mean that the final two remaining pre X songs are from the Allie Hughes EP.

    RUNAWAY (10):

    “this is her best early song for me. It’s so fucking beautiful, and I’ve been obsessed with it for many years now. I fall in love with it even more every time I listen.”

    Cutlery (7):

    “It starts out calmly and peacefully giving a nice feeling, but becomes a little uneventful because not much really happens.”

     
  17. Shook. Not me falling for this suspense again thinking it was Life of the Party or Lifted

    Goodbye to Ladies and Gagamen, her worst project

    Madame X

    Average: 7.729

    Total Points: 293.700

    Total Number of Voters: 38

    My Score: 10

    Highest Scores: 10 x6 @SophiaSophia, @Phonetics Girl, @RUNAWAY, @Dijah. @Andy French & @ohnostalgia, 9.75 @DJHazey, 9.5 @aux, 9 x2 @BubblegumBoy, @SlowGinFizzzz

    Lowest Scores: 5 x3 @Ana Raquel, @Verandi & @Holly Something, 4 @daninternational, 3 @Hurricane Drunk

    Thankfully it’s not June Gloom’s turn today but another song from Cape God. But the complete lack of taste showing here with this beauty of a song leaving now. Madame X perfectly encapsulates the story and world building of Cape God. It’s the only song on the album that directly addresses addiction and refers back to the Cape Cod documentary. Allie describes Madame X as a “love song to your drug of choice”. For me this is my favourite Allie X ballad as it’s so stunning the composition aligns with her vocals harmoniously. The lyricism brilliantly executes the emotional toll of addiction and the extent of substance dependency. It’s so integral to this album that without it the overall message would be lost. Personally this is more than just a song, it's a aural experience, a deep dive into the very essence of Cape God.

    DJHazey (9.75):

    “What Madonna album? *DevilEmoji*” What we're not gonna do is be shady to the Queen of Pop in my rate.

    collxtion (8):

    “One of her strongest ballads. Amazing imagery, amazing vocal performance.” Nothing but facts being stated here.


    Gemini (7):

    “This is a rather pretty ballad both in production, vocals and lyrics. The album as a whole was inspired by Heroin Cape Cod documentary she watched and this song is obviously about being wrapped up in drugs. It's not a song I return to often but it definitely further creates this Cape God world she's building with these songs.” For me it’s a no skip I can’t imagine my Cape God experience without this song.

    imaduck (5.5):

    “buy rebel heart on itunes” Stream Cape God on Spotify once, Stream Cape God on Spotify twice.

    daninternational (4):

    “All vibe, no song” You really tried with this factually incorrect statement.
