Your unpopular pop opinions

- Can't Get You Out of My Head is overrated. It's... fine but its success overshadowed In Your Eyes and Love At First Sight which are way better pop songs

- Christmas albums have to be the most boring projects artists release, I actively sigh when a big pop girl announces one. Quite frankly with how much Christmas music I'm subjected to in December I'd rather listen to someone scratching their nails on a chalkboard than sit down and listen to a Christmas album (before anyone says it - "BAH HUMBUG" indeed)

- Fantasy Ride is Ciara's best album, brilliant from start to finish

- Cher Lloyd's Sorry I'm Late album is actually a solid pop album
 
I don’t think that finding CGYOMH the weaker Fever single is that unpopular. A lot of us shared that opinion during her Discography Rate. It’s still great though!
It actually did end up the highest rated single from that album in her most recent discography rate (made it to #4 in total). Then again, "Fever" has one of the most flawless single runs ever, so it's basically just comparing 10/10 songs dd

Speaking of Kylie and unpopular opinions, "Slow" is my least favourite single from "Body Language" (it's still really good obviously).

I don't think this is necessarily an unpopular opinion? Unless they're a cute little side project and a fresh take on the "genre", like Ariana's Christmas & Chill EP, I hate it when artists release Christmas albums. It just feels so creatively bankrupt and, especially for artists past their commercial peak, kind of like giving up. Nothing says "only in it for the money" more than releasing a Christmas album.

Or a covers album.

Oh, I've just noticed it's the beginning of December and lots of people seem to be listening to Christmas music so I just assumed people generally got excited for them. I wouldn't know because I don't really do Christmas ddd but 100% agree with this! Haven't listened to any Christmas albums artists have released, no interest
 
- Katy B's Honey was definitely better than Little Red overall, it deserved way much more success
- While the whole R.O.S.E. concept and Jessie J in general are cringe and overall embarassing, a lot of the songs on that album were actually fine and she actually showed restraint vocally, and I mean she can have a great voice if she wants too.
- International Smile by Katy Perry is stupid and fun, I was actually surprised to see how much hate it got (gets?)
- I am greatly disappointed by FKA twigs output post MAGDALENE
 
Live albums, especially without the actual concert video, are pointless. The point of the live performance is to view a live performance.

Or a covers album.
I love a good covers album that completely reworks the songs (see: Uncovered series by UnWoman) and/or has a theme but most Popstar covers (let alone cover albums) are just them singing a shitty reproduction of the original so it’s all what’s the point.
 
This is going to be controversial and I wouldn't dare post it in her thread, but Sza's music does absolutely nothing for me, it's... okay. I've listened to CTRL multiple times and then SOS when it was released too, but I honestly couldn't tell you what one Sza song sounds like.

I struggle with her a bit too. I like "Kill Bill" but it's one of the few that stuck with me off her new one, which feels so long and meandering that it's tough to sit through in one go. I like about half of Ctrl (pretty much the same songs everyone else likes).

A friend turned me on to her mixtapes when she was still fairly underground and there's some really strange stuff on those that interests me a lot more than her major label projects. I wish she still made music like this:

 
I love SZA but it 10000% took time as my horrendous and embarrassing scores from @Mr.Arroz incredible iconic Black Girl Magic Debut rate dhow. I truly feel like as a listener you have to give up all preconceived notions of what you expect her to sound like especially as a Black woman cause she’s such a singular voice and songwriter. I feel like if you gave her more time- I would recommend starting in the middle point round Smoking on my ex pack to start the new album- you would really enjoy her (I love your taste!!) The stream of consciousness writing paired with the depth she’s able to hit (20 something! Blind!) with her vocals are just amazing. In the end, tardes subjective but I feel talent is undeniable!
