  1. Is it bad that I'm excited to hear it now? Dddd

    Edit: yeah I can see what you mean. Not sure if I like it though.
     
  2. Boyfriend is literally a direct copy of Mabel’s Boyfriend...

    it went from worse to worser
     
  3. Souvenir is the best of these new tracks.
     
  4. I had the same exact thought.
    At least Mabel sounds like she wants to live.

    What was even the point of this reissue beyond a cheap cash grab?

    Souvenir is kind of cute. Boyfriend is trash though. She is meh.
     
  7. She is indeed.
     
  8. Boyfriend has a nice sound and she flows all over it, the beat reminds me of Kanye's Fade a bit

    Souvenir sounds cool too, She is a bit forgettable (the song, and her too LOL)

    These new songs weren't really necessary, but thanks for them I guess
     
  9. The best thing about "Boyfriend" is its sample and that's it.

    Edit: Wait. If it does sample "Mystery Of Love," why doesn't Mr Fingers appear in the writing credits?

  10. Souvenir is really good actually.
     
  11. The new songs are OK, but not saying much.

  13. I like Boyfriend and I think that’s mostly because of the Mr. Fingers interpolation
     
    Mr Blonde, digitalkaiser and Rem like this.
  14. Why do re-releases now follow the standard/deluxes so closely? Weeknd aside, seems rather pitiful.
     
  15. Souvenir is also very nice. Telepopmusik meets ASMR

  16. Because post-album singles don’t really do anything in the streaming era, so if you want another hit after the album is out you put out some new material and tack it on to the album.

    I am confused as to why she refuses to tack on Bad Liar, Fetish, Wolves, Back To You, and It Ain't Me. She'd have nearly the most streamed female album, and all of those being stand-alone singles is annoying.
     
  18. I genuinely don't mind this deluxe version of the album.

    All songs could be handled with more finesse by another artist but it all bops a bit and maybe I'm just depressed enough for that to be okay!
     
  19. Boyfriend and Souvenir are both great and a lot more interesting than the rest of the album. Some of those vocals though... I swear she never sounded this bad.

  20. The way her A&R just up and said "see ya" after Revival.

    It's honestly baffling just how fucking boring every track from this project is.
