(Original score - 30)

I am a changed woman. This is truly the music of the future and I'm hopping on the last minute train. God bless this women and her music.

I really didn't want to review this. My favorite artist makes basically her Revival compared to her other masterpieces. Out of 12 songs I only enjoyed 8 of them. I have confidence in Ella's new sound but I can't take Jack Antonoff's stiff production, and even I liked albums like "Arizona Baby" and "folklore". It's clearly not a secret that I prefer her electronic sound and bold vocals and in this album I barely saw any of that left in her. Similarly to a close childhood ... read more

I remember being 18 years old, drinking Arizona tea outside of the local Daily Yamazaki and blasting this album on my 2014 keitai. Did I have friends during that time period? Well, no. Did I have a slew of good memories? Of course :)

No....no....this can’t be happening.

Am I...becoming an NBA Youngboy Stan? *gags*

While Blame it on Baby was a boring slop fest as a whole, I would be lying if I told you it was a complete wasteland. I liked the songs which followed the (slightly gimmicky) formula of including a melodic rapper on the track in some way. Rockstar, Jump and Drop instantly headed to my “Hype Trap” playlist because of the contributions from Roddy Rich, A Boogie and Youngboy never broke again. ... read more

My favorite artist returns. I’m devastated that I didn’t give this a 100 :(

I have no problem with Ella being happy and letting it leak into her music or choosing to pursue a new folk / psychedelic direction, but this is simply not a very interesting song. The lyrics are also bland for a Lorde song, sounding like some pre-PH stuff, even the chorus to Tennis Courts was more inspired than this. Overall, “Solar Power” is a disappointment that only picks up at the end with ... read more

Hey, I hope you're doing well.

I'm making a list where, judging by AOTY users' individual top ten albums, I'm compiling a ranked community top 100. I'd love it if you could contribute by just replying with your top ten ranked from 1-10; I'm totally fine with being redirected to a ranked favourites list of sorts, if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and replying, if you do
