First impression? That got really dull really quickly, it was a challenge to not turn it off. Ok so, this isn't bad, if it was shorter it would be fine but like, 18 tracks????? Come on. The album started fine, I enjoyed the couple few tracks, but then I got so fucking bored, I was counting down the tracks by track 10, this is an hour-long, which thinking about it isn't that long. But fucking hell this feels like an eternity. There are standout songs, but then a lot of the songs are just dull, bland pop with no charm to it. I can see the connection to 1989 here, but that album had charm to it, and also wasn't fucking bloated with mediocre pop drivel.
I was hoping I'd enjoy this, and I tried to, cos I liked the opening tracks, but it just got dull, and boring, and any other word that describes boring. Even if you like pop, this feels like a slog, when every song sounds the same, it gets boring very quickly. Some songs sound unique yes, which is a nice break, but there's too much drivel for them to really have an effect.
Paper Rings is probably the best song honestly, it's really fun and I like it a lot. London Boy is another fun one honestly, it may be quite cliche but I like it a lot, it's again, fun.
Favourite Tracks: I Forgot That You Existed, Cruel Summer, Lover, The Archer, Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince, Paper Rings, London Boy
Least Favourite Tracks: I Think He Knows, Cornelia Street, Death by a Thousand Cuts, Soon You'll Feel Better,, ok honestly everything after Soon You'll Feel Better I got bored of, so just everything after that point here.
