    IF ONLY. Although not in this case :argh:

    I’m in the minority of thinking that Art Angels was horrible so I’d given up on her anyway. Mind you, nice bit of Cyrillic

    It'll be interesting to see if the Elon Musk thing has damaged her. She's well into her Bjork phase where if something is shit it's "a brave reinvention" and if it's not shit is "her best album since (blah blah)" but I;m not sure how big the queue is to kick her. Critics are such click-bating cuntwipes these days, it's hard to say.

    Most current pop-culture writing is shallow, unimaginative dreck read by idiots (including me :angel:), but it is quite difficult to separate art from the artist when she's recorded an ode to futuristic tech capitalism while dating the epic rocket man.

    I’ve now bothered to listen to more than five seconds of it and actually I really quite like it :tongueout:

    Hopefully the album contains a Curve cover :disco:

    I think it sounds very good on the speakers

    it's very Evanescence in places though :D

    If she touches "The Coast Is Clear", I'm coming after her. :evil:

    Well it’s funny you should say that because she’s apparently given it a nice Evanescence-esque twist :tongueout:

    Her gig was one of the best I've ever gone to and I'm excited about possibly seeing her again!

    Reluctant to keep stanning her now she's the hipster Wendi Deng, but I can't deny my enjoyment of this paean to Sainsbury's self-service machines.

    Just popping back in to award this 9.2 out of 10, not least because of the repeated knifey clang - actually that really should be KLANG - in the chorus and because I felt strangely compelled to BUY it :shock:

    ALBUM NOW PLEASE

    OMG why have I never heard this work of fabulous wonder before and OMG why did she scrap the whole album it was on because it was TOO DEPRESSING?

    DOES SHE NOT REALISE :argh:

    Also, I’m not sure what it was that I didn’t like about ‘Art Angels’ as a skippy through the tracks on iTunes reveals that the songs don’t even sound familiar :wired:

    I saw this being described on Twitter as "a tribute to self-service checkouts" and now that's all I can hear.

    It turns out that my version of it on iTunes has loads of sub-320 bitrates. THANKS AMAZON. No wonder it sounded shit. Mmm, 245 - HOT :disco:

    I have deleted it in a furious temper accompanied by a series of piercing screams and will be starting again once I’m WAV’d up

    If we're talking metal-influenced songs with Grimes on them, obviously I'm far more into THIS than her new one:


    It's a Hollywood moment :disco:

    Flesh Without Blood is EVERYTHING. It's my 2015 breakup song.
