I really wish she went into the direction of "Underdog" for a few more songs, I feel like it's sooo overlooked

 

Underdog

Better 

Crowded Places

 

Are 1000x better than some of the songs on Serpentina. 

I know they are outtakes from The Altar, but it's crazy how these great songs didn't find a home on an album but some songs like "Spirit" did lol

My favorite album is III as it had a greater impact in my life when it came out (and also because of how experimental she went, wow). 

 

But I agree that The Altar is her strongest effort yet. It's alternative pop but still have a big mainstream edge that can earworm any casual pop listener. 

 

On the other side, Goddess to me is very niche, it's an album that most fans of alt pop and electronic music can enjoy. 

 

Meanwhile, Serpentina is her most mainstream album to date, it feels like it's her shot to attract new casual listeners thanks to Spotify and Apple Music playlists and algorithm. 

 

All her 4 albums are vastly different yet as a whole they carry their own personal and distinctive music sound.

I saw her live in Amsterdam this past Sunday and she was phenomenal. My only gripe is this woman has 4 albums out and she only did an hour set... (and only 1 song from III which is the biggest crime of all). Still had an amazing time tho

I'm still so obsessed with The Altar instrumentals too

 

The Altar and III had the hugest replay value for me, the production is so rich and multilayer that everytime you play those albums you hear at least one thing you didn't actually hear the last time.

Absolutely. I think the diversity of the songs helps too. Not that every song is the same on Goddess or Serpentina but especially for goddess, when I think of the album I think of one particular vibe only (which was still everything to me at the time in 2014-15)

But when I think of The Altar and III, I can't even place what the vibe is besides tones of vulnerability and power
