I dunno, there weren’t all that many musical ideas or musical layers here I didn’t think. It’s good, but at this stage pretty elemental I though. *DONT SHOOT UP THE PARTY is an exception - a real standout.

Admittedly I didn’t dive much into the lyrics. Maybe that’s where the glory is...

Ooooooooh I have taken ages to lock in my thoughts with a score and review. Because... I don’t really like it and that makes me quite sad 😢

I admit sheepishly this is my first proper listen to St Vincent. I like it, and can IMAGINE loving it. So many parts, so many layers, so much to reward repeated listens.

Every track on this very short album centers around a good idea / good beat. And yet it somehow still ends up being just a a little boring.

IMO if they took all the ideas from these 8 tracks and 22mins, distilled them down into 2 or 3 tracks, then they’d have the start of a really great album.
