What are these comments about the album being bloated? Something with a consistently sky-high level of quality cannot be considered bloated. Despite the length, there are hardly any filler tracks, and it's also conceptually and sonically cohesive. It's not like you have 23 tracks to rack up the streams, you have them so you can get deeper into it and cry more lmao.
Anyway, the album is spectacular. Every song brings something new and necessary and unpacking it is pure enjoyment. It's adventurous but refined, it's so fun and dynamic, but it is also so self-assured in its vulnerability and depth.
