I'm rehashing the same things said in the last 100 pages but I am a bit disappointed with the overall album. Melodrama took months for me to fully love and understand its greatness but this feels... rushed. like Im on the studio room with her and she is still deciding on the trackless flow, re arranging the track names on a white board. This album suffers from only have Jack as main producer. The type of Southeast Asian/Indian sound she went for needed producers who actually know the soundscape. Idk... its obv this album did not take 4 years to make.
Also the "CDs are evil to the environment" is such a pretentious and outdated concept. This would make sense [not really] back in the early 2000s when people consumed and played CDs constantly until they scratched up & burned out; and sometimes even bough another copy. People that buy new CDs in this age have the mindset of collection, taking care of them, making sure they have resell value when they don't want it anymore. And im pretty sure vinyl has a equal, or bigger footprint than a plastic holographic disk.
