It is indeed a veritable collection that pays homage to its original tracks with a tinge of vocal maturity after more than a decade. Those looking for a reexperience of the late 2000s to early 2010s will be surely delighted with the additional of the From The Vault tracks with its more polished production that is still thematically consistent with her trademarked Fearless sound. For those who listened to her casually back then, it is a delight to see the subtleties in the reimagined production ... read more

The thing about the singer-songwriter genre is that something somewhere, someone has done it all. There's really no room for innovation nor novelty for practically the oldest genre alive. The instrumentals are frankly nothing new. It's not necessarily bad, it's quite good actually, but nothing mindblowing. The songwriting is naturistic, immersive, but nothing extremely profound that it begs the thought, the contemplation of societal norms nor the existence of the universe, the existentialism of ... read more

The sounds and production is still undoubtedly FKA twigs, and it still remains very provocative as she was. Nonetheless, it is a step closer to familiar territory.

It's warm but very familiar. Unfortunately, I found that the songwriting isn't really that mesmerizing nor immersive either.

This project is a respectable set of melodic synthpop, catchy hooks, and a cohesive theme in its lyrical undertones. This is enjoyable synthpop that does not rely on being big and flashy. The dark and grim undertones of the dawn and metaphorically, the darkness of being stuck in a pit, is a very nice juxtaposition to the synth-laden instrumentation. The problem is that sonically, it lands too close to its predecessor, drawing necessary (and unnecessary) parallels of which of the two does it ... read more

Happier Than Ever is an improvement over her previous efforts but is tainted by the same myriad of inconsistencies that does not make me appreciate her any more than what I do now. The production is more varied and more restrained which is great because I really do feel like this Billie Eilish is the more genuine Billie Eilish than what I saw previously, a faux Billie Eilish capitalizing on dark sounds while still talking about inane immaturities to appeal to the younger generation. However, I ... read more

Hey there! I’m making a community list for the end of the world, and I would love for you to contribute.


“The surrounding buildings, in ruins. The last survivors, scrambling to find anything that remains. Fire flickers in the pitch-black, creating just a sliver of radiance. Miraculously, you find an old device that can play music. You can only play one album as the battery is nearly dead. Knowing that you have little time left, what is the one album that you choose to listen to as you watch the world crumble before your eyes?”

The album topic could discuss a disastrous time, its sound could fit the vibe of a post apocalyptic setting, or it could be one of your favorite albums that you would want to experience for the last time.

Please provide the artist, album, and an explanation as to why you chose that specific album.

Thank you for reading <3

Here’s the list:

Hey!!!! So today I had an idea to make a very fun list on this amazing website that I'm addicted to. So... my goal is to make a huge RAINBOW🌈list, so you get to choose an album that you like that has an specific color, it can be literally any album but the majority of the cover has to be of the chosen color. So I'm gonna start by choosing one of my fav albums which has the color: RED πŸ”΄

Send me a color and an album that you like, If you want to write something you like album this album feel free to do it!
Or you can just send the name and the color.

Hey, I'm doing a community list of songs to hypothetically replace the U.S. National Anthem, would love to hear what your suggestion is and why you think it's deserving of anthem status (you don't need an explanation, but it would be nice :)) (based on your location I know you're not in America but I'd still appreciate your input)
