Bonus tracks sound amazing i gotta admit! "Hold No Grudge" has a very early 2000s feel like "Mood Ring". This album is definitely very cohesive--and that might be the issue. 

 


Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year.

OK for one final time I'll say it: I was right to claim Oceanic Feeling, like I do with all the closers. 

It's the song where the most happens and I forgot it was that long. I must have a video

Also I need that deluxe cover in HQ WHERE IS IT

You can hear what she was trying to do, but it somehow ends up feeling both directionless and contrived.

Most of them feel like drafts or demos which doesn't help in this particular case.

The bonus songs are good that one insider needs to have their ears checked.

 

In the end I think it's a 6/10 (+1 for my sentiment for PH and Melodrama)

I dont like Jack shouting randomly in dominoes either.  That was cringe and unwanted

Just like him talking randomly a couple words after the chorus in Not All Who Wander Are Lost :eyeroll2: I wonder why would he think it would be a good idea to put his vocals in these songs... like, great you are producing them, but, dude, your watermark? :awk: 

it makes them more ~~HoNeSt~~ <33333

A 6.5/10 is fair I think. Melodrama >> Pure Heroin > Solar Power. Even if this album grows on me over time it I don’t see it surpassing 8/10–nor does it have the standout tracks like The Louvre, Hardfeelings/Loveless, Liability; 400 Lux, Ribs, Team, A World Alone. 
 

That said, I think this album definitely serves a purpose and a has a niche that will hit the spot when I’m in a certain mood. 
 

Fave tracks: The Man With The Axe, Mood Ring, Hold No Grudge, Oceanic Feeling.

The fact that the bonus tracks won't be on streaming......... a hate crime 


maybe they will later? Like what TS did for folklore/evermore (I think it was a month after initial release).
