*Bonus points for being the first album I cried to this year.*

This album exceeded my expectations. I didn't know how it'd turn out just merely hearing the singles. But now that the whole package has arrived, I now understand what Hayley is saying. She's been through a lot of shit these past few years, and now she has fallen in love again (I think we all know who her lover is) and blossomed back into her vibrant feminine self. Seeing her this happy makes me happy! Also, shoutout to Taylor ... read more

At first, I was like, "Eh...I don't get the hype." But now that I spent almost an entire day listening to it, I can conclude that it's grown on me a lot. Loaded with bops, a bit cheeky here and there, stellar production, and overall easy to listen to! Very impressed!

If I ever catch them live after this crisis, then catch my petite ass moshing to Trampoline like no one's business!

I just heard a snippet of XS on Twitter and was like, "NOW HOL UP" and decided to listen to the full album. Absolutely no regrets! This might be a pop record, but it's got a little bit of everything for everyone. I'm guessing that's why I was so hooked from beginning to end. Miss Rina Sawayama, this album is amazing!
