HOT TAKE: The critics are bonkers. Prioritise Pleasure is miles away from an 80+ score, let alone a 93. This album took some of the worst parts of generic pop music and implemented them all with substandard execution. The vocals are iffy, the lyrics are shallow, and the production is absolutely horrendous at times.

Running from the obsolete, 'Prioritise Pleasure' is a one of a kind pop album. Self Esteem is bringing interesting production, also great combination of instrumentals, a lot of incredible vocal performance and supreme energy. There's a fine line in this record going between a confessional album & a surreal voyage with political nuance. The main road is of course a pop one, Rebecca Lucy Taylor is a brave artist and you can tell, she's not afraid to go in uncomfortable places, while she's ... read more

Como esse disco pode ser tão aclamado assim?

Às vezes é uma tarefa difícil entender como funciona a dinâmica da crítica dos portais estadunidenses e ingleses. Isso não é só pelo fato de ora massacrarem álbuns bons, ora aclamarem álbuns ruins, sendo esse um dos principais problemas, pois sabemos como eles conseguem moldar a opinião dos usuários. Mas voltando para o 'Prioritise Pleasure', esse disco ... read more

Prioritise Pleasure foi um disco que ouvi por curiosidade de saber o que havia de tão bom nele pra estar sendo tão aclamado, mas ele é um daqueles casos de álbuns superestimados pela crítica. Ele é um bom álbum, mas chega nem perto de ser excelente e tem alguns problemas.

Ele inicia mal com a medíocre "I'm Fine", a segunda faixa já é melhorzinha, mas não passa de mediana, porém o álbum ... read more

The beginning of this album was terribly bad for me, but it's getting better. How can I help you reminds me of Kanye's Black Skinhead. Hmmm

Highlights : I Do This All The Time, The 345, You Forever

Eu quero saber que tipo de droga os críticos usaram pra dar uma nota tão alta pra essa porcaria.
Esse disco não é digno de 90.. nem de 70, é provavelmente o disco mais superestimado pela crítica de 2021.
Nada aqui é bom, desde sua capa mega cafona, até suas músias horrorosas.
A produção é... questionável, pegando um pop e usando da forma mais horrenda possível pra cirar melodias e músicas ... read more

Thanks @Yea for the recommendation!

Favourite: I Do This All The Time
Worst: Hobbies 2

1. I'm Fine - 8
[Wow I really like this particular style of production with that grumble just gets you in the mood to listen to some tunes haha. Other than that brilliant production work I actually enjoyed the vocals and the lyrics I reckon aren't too bad either.]

2. Fucking Wizardry - 7
[Damn I really enjoy the passion that she pours into this song. I guess lyrically i can see it being a little dodgy at ... read more

Be entitled to your opinion, but what I've gathered from being on this site so far, is that you guys don't like music that's fun, you don't like music that's catchy, you don't like music that's happy, and you're extra critical of pop music. Newsflash: YOU DON'T NEED TO BE ORIGINAL TO BE GOOD.
The only thing I really hated about this is the cover. Other than that, this is yet another one of my fav pop albums of the year.

Pushing past the absolutely terrible cover art, I found this record to be pretty enjoyable for the most part. Some places I found a little awkward, but when it hits a stride it really works. The title track is really interesting, I wish there were more places like that. I appreciate her voice and her messaging, but sometimes the lyricism can be somewhat awkward. Overall though, I enjoyed this record but I also feel like there is more room to grow here

I...am...confused...this...THIS is Album Of the Year, critics must've have listened to a different thing then I listened to...haha...right?

Look, there are definitely some spot lights on this record. Instead of it being some generic pop or recycled material like *cough cough Ed Sheeran* it definitely tries its best to at least make and present itself as something you could get nowhere else. It doesn't ever feel like that, instead it gives you generic song ideas and many weak performances, I ... read more

Seu segundo álbum de estúdio, Prioritise Pleasure, segue esses mesmos moldes. O disco, produzido por Johan Karlberg, é um rompimento com qualquer padrão de música pop estabelecido nos últimos anos. Tomando Kate Bush como inspiração, Taylor cria uma obra que mescla pop com rock, country, rap e experimental, além de traçar sua história sobre a sobrevivência tanto a um término de relacionamento, quanto a uma ... read more

When the "Shave my pussy (That's just for me)" line came, I realized she had to bought all those critics.
I noticed all the hype this album got from the critics when it came out, but I didn't know this was the AOTY according to them. Honestly, I wasn't going to listen to this thing because of the atrocious cover, but after noticing the critic score I just had to, maybe I was missing on a masterpiece. Yeah... that wasn't the case.

My experience listening to this thing could be be ... read more

Prioritize pleasure é um dos álbuns mais aclamados pela crítica do ano, mas os usuários deram nota mediana. Eu ouvi esse albums duas vezes seguidas por que sabia que a primeira nota não era o que eu realmente senti com o álbum.

O álbum começa com "I'm fine" que tem uma boa produção e me deixa curioso para o que vem pela frente.

"fucking Wizardry" tem um refrão muito bom, o resto da música ... read more
