It's... fine. Not the worst single she's released so far but probably the safest. "Bang! Bang!" (one of the only good songs on Funstyle) gave a hint as to what a Liz Phair song with more studio production would sound like, but this isn't quite as captivating or structured. I always had this fantasy that she would join the canon of 90s alt ladies releasing late-career masterpieces in the 2010s (Let England Shake, Vulnicura, I guess Idler Wheel but let's be honest Fiona has never made a ... read more

One of her most melodically straightforward songs since her debut. It's nice to hear Torres sing over a big arena-rock style track like this, which is somewhat unexplored territory from the experimental hybrids she tends to pursue. Probably the most hyped I have been for one of her records since Sprinter.

Yes i know this is just nostalgia bating for millennials in their late 20s/early 30s but I still stan. Critiques like the ones this has received make me question my ability to even listen to music because I'm not really hearing the problems with her vocals everyone is talking about. Yeah, her tone on the chorus is a little sharp but for the most part I can really get behind it - certainly miles ahead of anything her brother has put out.

Of all the Whitney uptempos, this one just completely takes the cake in my opinion.
I can't believe I ever let Sam Smith's stupid pronoun-free cover of it cloud my perception.
When that snare and guitar kick in right before the chorus I just feel like I could climb Mount Everest.
One of those 80s hits that would sound just as good if all the revivalism of the past 10 years hadn't happened.

Wish I hadn't looked up the lyrics cause I always thought she was saying "Oh, Whitney!" at ... read more

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!
