    My 1 pointer got quite a bit of love though.

  4. Working Girl was one of those brutal choices I had to make as I swapped it for Make A Scene. If it had been twenty albums instead I would have included it definitely. I decided to show my love for Press It here instead of Ultimate songs because a number of my favourite Taemin songs come from this album. But I hope my 6 pointer gets some love apart from myself.

  5. I fell out of the loop at some point, but their second album was also surprisingly great. That Muse comment is also something I instantly thought at the time, and yes, those vocals are unreal.

  6. Hey hey! 6-Pointers will commence tomorrow!

    Definitely expect some more surprising artists among this batch. That much I can promise you.

    Track picks and commentary

    WhenTheSunGoesDown:
    Fave: Sippin' On Sunshine
    Recommend: Give You What You Like
    Deep cut/underrated: Hush Hush

    Every single song on this album SLAPS. Melissa did that. It’s the least cohesive album in the history of music and I love every deranged aspect of it. The sincere bubblegum of Sippin On Sunshine, the absurd rap break in Bitchin’ Summer, the pop-rock jams, Avril cooing gross dirty talk at Marilyn Manson, soaring ballads, the horrifying trap nightmare of Hello Kitty… this album has everything. Play it in full at my funeral.

    Glad to see The Desired Effect here, another one I had to painfully dispose of!
     
  18. Veritas didn’t get multiple voters? I thought for sure @DJHazey and @berserkboi would have voted for it, at least.
