I love Kitty Kat, "don't kitty kitty cat me like I'm just your pussy" and the thrashing instrumental just makes it so badass. Need Myself is good as hell too, "can I get up off of my knees, and find a rhythm for my own" feminist anthem. And yes I love the production on To Get By, it's so hypnotizing.
The only song that I wasn't really feeling was the opener, but that changed. The last three are just so perfect omg, I listen to those three on repeat so often. The four that we had prior to release remain gold too!


I hope they grow on me and become late favorites of mine :) also just actually listened straight through Systems on Apple Music and it's so effing goooooood

all the production and vocals are perfect here too, she is everything

OMG, I really didn't like the version (sometimes I hate to say it but I feel Dev comes off very pretentious) but them making something together would be H E A V E N

There were comments (like minutes after she first posted it) saying she copied this video but whatever, the song, her music in general, is better so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

She made making my list for best albums of the year even more difficult. "Everything Is You" is underrated af and stuck in my head CONSTANTLY.

Same, I asked but I don't really have an answer yet either lmao :rip: I'd say it's sort of a 5-way tie between the first 5 tracks as my favorite. I honestly enjoy every song a whole lot.

The packaging is a very simple digipak, like Grimes' Visions, except it has a booklet with just the lyrics included.
