Summary

To my recollection, I believe that DwnWthVwls was the first person who introduced me to her music either directly (played a track or two in plug, linked a song etc.) or posted a video/picture of her in another part of the forum. In fact, I distinctly remember somebody posting a vid where she discussed items she collected. Either way, I instantly liked her aesthetic visually and sonically. And she has remained a favourite ever since.

As far as the album goes, I love the discordance between the bubbly sweet production - at least at face value - and the relatively dark subjects she deals with. This is emphasised by the hushed, almost raspy vocals she has. It's a very consistent release that puts you completely in her world throughout, with consistently good songs that sound different enough to avoid overkill. Overall, one of my go-to albums at almost any time I start loading up a queue.

I freaking love this album! I don't like much in the area of pop but this album is fantastic.

You ever give her a shot?

p.s. Unlucks, not a new journal entry.

I did. I dug it a lot. It's fun. I feel like the artist being sixteen comes across a little too much in the album but doesn't hurt it.

Summary

I can't remember my first encounter with this band, but their chilled vibe jived with me from the get-go. I couldn't stop playing this album when I first heard it, and some of the tracks became plug regulars for me.

This is the type of summer record you can just play through at a party without caring if people will start complaining about your taste in music. It's inoffensive enough to please almost everyone, and also has some major jams. Sure, it doesn't come close to a perfect album, and some tracks don't quite hit the highs of others, but I can't complain.

Summary

I have always loved The Beach Boys. I think there's probably something wrong with you in the head if you don't at least like them. Their harmonies, melodies, attitude and chipper personality are all too catchy and fun to dislike. They mastered the art of pop music from their first attempt and didn't really look back

This album is no different. In fact, it's probably my favourite of theirs. It's less trippy and otherworldly than elements of Pet Sounds, but it's just tune after tune of drippingly sweet pop nuggets. It's true that some of these tracks almost feel incomplete, and just seem to end, but I like what I hear when it's playing so fuck it.

Sucker
Break the Rules
London Queen
Breaking Up
Gold Coins
Boom Clap
Doing It
Body of My Own
Famous
Hanging Around
Die Tonight

Spoiler for Choice Cuts:







Summary

Charli is bae. You need to recognize and internalize. She's been a favourite of mine since I first heard her radio hits back in the day, and I have only grown to like her music as the years have gone by. She's got such personality and attitude, and I just vibe with pretty much everything she has ever done. Even her earlier stuff that's so bad it's great.

As for this album, the bangers hit hard and are simply classic pop tunes as far as I am concerned. "Break The Rules" is one of my favourite songs of all time and I'd violate the NAP for anyone who disagrees that it's a fantastic tune. Sure, this album isn't the most consistent and features plenty of totally nothing songs, but it's hard hitters completely make up for that.
