sonically this might not be the strongest or catchiest single lorde has ever put out, but i think it is a solid comeback song. when she sings “forget all of the tears that you’ve cried, it’s over/it’s a new state of mind - are you coming, my baby?” it’s like she’s saying goodbye to the melodrama era, surrounded by heartbreak and all of its consequences, and inviting us to this new light, bright, and summery world where she seems to be much more happy ... read more

this is sooooooooooo good wow. love that thick bassline, the harmonies, the melody of the chorus... it’s just great all around! a smooth summer jam. i think it might be my favorite out of the ones she’s put out recently. syrup really wasn’t my cup of tea, but kim is a banger and this is more chill but very gorgeous. i’m excited for vol. 3!

i don’t really know how to make this review but i love every single thing about this record. the production on all of the tracks is fantastic, the string work is gorgeously done, i love the bubbly synths that appear on some of the songs, love how catchy and detailed the writing is, the vocals are unique and bright, and i love the overall feeling that the album gives me. it makes me feel good, nostalgic, and a little emotional too. it’s just an amazing and flawless experience imo.

it’s amazing how with every release this woman just keeps solidifying herself as one of the best brazilian popstars. gueto is another BANGER from IZA that sees her dealing with empowerment in a very fun and uplifting way. production wise it’s a mixture of sounds. there’s some trap influence (some adlibs are super travis), a bit of brazilian funk, and i even hear a little sprinkle of samba. the result is a super colorful and upbeat track, instantly catchy. it’s one of the ... read more

i think some of you guys just need to put your expectations aside and try not to compare these new songs to her first album cause she’s clearly trying to do something different this time around. as simple as it seems this song works for me because i think the chorus is really catchy and the way she sings has kind of a swag to it, and that bass is super funky (i also think the video is fun, basically her version of 7/11). and the more i listen to it the more it grows on me. i get that this ... read more

hello stolenpositions
First impressions are key when it comes to albums. A good opener can really open your eyes and let the listener know what is in store for them, a bad opener, on the other hand, can put a bad taste in the listener's mouth and ruin the experience for them.

Which brings me to my question for my list: What is your favorite album opener of all time and why? (only choose one, and please give the artist, album, and song name)

this is not a ranked list. way too much work and it would be impossible for me to choose between some of these songs. i’ll just add the ones that i’m listening to the most.

this list only includes albums/eps that i thought to be enjoyable. idk but i think so far 2021 has been kinda weak in comparison to 2020 i hope better albums get released as the year progresses
