    i didn’t really give Testament a proper listen, bar the singles which I love. From the ratings I really need to give it another go :o

    Footprints feels a BIT low key, but again it's doing a lot of fun switching up with the production that I'm appreciating.

    Footprints is lovely. Fuzzy. I think I used that word for Pieces too. Shaznay obviously likes to write and ending this way.

    It's a very strong album. It just doesn't quite have the 11's and 12's that Red Flag has.

    Yay! Two very solid albums. Well done gals!

    Here's hoping for another one, one day...

    I like Footprints too

    I liked both albums (Red Flag more), and they will both need more listens. They were both more varied than I expected (in a good way)

    I loved that! I can't believe I never bothered with this album before after loving Red Flag, I really am an ugly flop sometimes. Thank you @Tisch and also @Iguana during the bog break and @RJN too of course :disco:

    I am not great at ranking because I end up giving everything 6 or above. 2-5 feel so harsh but using all the numbers would make it more meaningful

    I will relisten to both during work tomorrow morning. I remember having a lot of time for both albums at the time but I'm not sure I've played them in the last 2 years at ALL.

    Listening to Red Flag and forgot how good some of the album tracks are as obviously “One Strike” and “This Is a War” are 11s

    Fear is gorgeous. STOP i’m not readyyyy.
    I’m still not sure what I think about Rachet Behaviour, I mean it is awful but also oddly compelling :D

    I gave it another go and most of it just washed over me.
    “After all” is obviously brilliant though

    See I don’t count a 7 as mediocre! I think I just rate differently than everyone else :D

    I mean I’m howling at @Tisch who gave Testament 5 tens and said “it’s a strong album” ... I give Ray Of Light 5 tens and that’s the best album of all time!

    I’m so mean. Is this why I’m single?

    08 To Have And Not to Hold
    08 Little Star
    09 Mer Girl

    I cba to get into a whole RATINGS discussion again, but I think I rate the songs compared the songs that surround them, and how I'm feeling in a particular moment. I agree that giving something a 06 is a sign of mediocrity, compared to giving a song a 04 or 03 which is getting into active disliking territory. :david:

    There are AT LEAST seven 10s on Ray of Light (and many of those 11s)

    The moopy rule in my ancient days was that only one song could be given an 11 :evil:

    also: living for @Tisch ’s ROL rate :disco:
