Not when Charli has Click, Thoughts, Shake It, and 2099.... 

 

all borderline unlistenable and downright painful at times

 

 


Click is one of her best tracks methinks :true:

 

Spoiler

And Thoughts is underrated but maybe I just love screaming in my car so the song is relatable :nails:

Ranking:-

Great-

Baby 

Lightning 

Crash(length is too short though)

 

Good-

constant repeat 

Good ones 

Every Rule 

Move me 

Twice 

Used to Know me 

 

Okay: 

Beg for you 

Yuck 

 

Bad:

New shapes 

 

overall this is a good album but not a great one and the length is problematic for its enjoyment-Songs like Constant repeat, Move me and crash are over before they get to the euphoric point.

Even though I don’t think the Lyricism is her best-this is clearly her most personal album. 
 

It’s concept is about both breaking free from destructive tendencies and people whilst also doing this herself and the hypocrisy surrounding it. 
This links with the cover-is Charli Causing the Car crash as a victim or is it intentional and her own fault?

 

it seems at times that she’s discussing borderline personality disorder almost:

The symptoms of BPD can be grouped into 4 main areas:

  • emotional instability – the psychological term for this is affective dysregulation
  • disturbed patterns of thinking or perception – cognitive distortions or perceptual distortions
  • impulsive behaviour
  • intense but unstable relationships with others
     

she even has a lyric calling herself borderline funnily enough.

 

Twice leaves the concept open ended-is it a positive that she is ignoring the difficulties of life or is she lunging into more destructive tendencies?

Ok after 5 more listens trying to force myself to like it cause i already bought tickets    i'm getting more into the vibe of the tracks. It helps keeping in mind that it's like the Sucker of post-VV Charli, a cute album that's just not on the same level of its predecessors :true:

Used to Know Me MV when btw? :kris:

As much as I love the album, I’d have to agree with u. BFY’s just missing something

Yes the song feels very naked and couldve had so much more hype

interesting theory but also it's not really our place to say whether she has it or not - if she feels the need to share it publicly then good for her but until then i think we should probably respect her privacy in regards to this
