Original album scoring was a 60, deluxe will stay a 60.

The remix was unnecessary and quite boring to say the least, with 2 generic artists. Nothing mixed well together with these new tracks although that does not mean they weren’t good. Although, lyricism was generic as per usual but “worst behavior” and “main thing” had a catchy beat but unfortunately was not enough for a bump up on the score for me entirely.

Positions is not exactly my favorite Ariana album but unlike many people I found it decent and fun. The deluxe songs are great (cohesive) additions to the project and better than even some of the standard ones, I just wanted them to be longer.
