Growing a little more with each listen. Don’t have super high expectations for the album but at least we know it won’t be Ryan Adams vainly trying to recreate the Guyville magic long after that train has left the station. The new song she played when I saw her live last year was pretty good too.

Also is there a site like AOTY but for reviewing books? I’m reading Liz’s memoir currently and would like to share my thoughts on it.

Now that end of decade lists are coming out I just want to say that this is probably my favorite song of the 2010s.

Amazing songs Lizzo has been dropping in 2019 (Drake repelling meme)
Just OK song Lizzo dropped two years ago (Drake thumbs up meme)
__________________________________________________

If we’re only talking about singles, Lizzo has literally never released a bad song. Since 2016, her single output has ranged from good (“Fitness”) to great (“Boys”) to flawless (“Juice”).

Yet somehow, the success of this track has brought out my inner curmudgeonly ... read more

UPDATE: Time to wipe the mascara off and write about this thing for real.

There's this Chinese game show where two people look at an extremely pixelated digital image that is gradually getting better and better resolution, and the first person to guess what it's a picture of wins. Tracking Marnie Stern's output chronologically is kind of like playing that game, and Chronicles of Marnia is where the photo finally comes into view.

I guess it might be easy to write this off as Stern's 'normie' ... read more

How high is the bar set with Joanna Newsom that Divers is considered to be a disappointment by some in her fanbase??

The biggest thing going against this album is that it's just that: an album - not a three-disc American songbook epic, not a five-track baroque pop masterclass whose shortest song is over seven minutes - just a standard eleven-track album. For some, this already reduces potential enjoyment simply because it seems less ambitious in scope. Good thing Newsom really brings it with ... read more

Question for my first community sourced AOTY list: What's a great album that you can't listen to anymore, and what's the reason?

and insecurities to be strategically set up and constructed into something people (hopefully) enjoy reading?

It's one of them issues I don't have whenever someone else is more personal oddly, just me, but I guess I self-critique quite a lot. Additionally, with my Tim Hecker - Virgins review something feels especially off and it's that it isn't raw, more it comes off as calculated. It wasn't like I suddenly typed it up freely straight after returning home, it was the next day and I spent an hour on it. I'm glad people like it, but doesn't that seem a bit odd for something that expresses one's flaws...

Sometimes I feel at such a low where I feel like venting a bit and becoming more personal in a review, but I feel sometimes wrong about it. The emotions and experiences are genuine, but I was worry that it comes off a bit emotionally manipulating too. A review, like any form of art is there to create an emotional response, even if that isn't the real intention and sometimes I think "do these people really need to waste their time on my problems. They aren't therapists."

She's kinda dead, kinda not. Her comments and shouts don't show, but she can still send them and she can still review. Really odd. You seem like genuinely one of the least offensive people here, so picking you as a target seems odd. She is anti-Palestine, somehow anti-semitic also, racist, and homophobic. Far from the best combination lol.
