    Has anyone aside from me bothered? I'm QUITE IMPRESSED after having zero interest in the debut album. "Golden", "Watermelon Sugar", "Cherry", "Fine Line" are my picks but the entire thing is very listenable.

    Also his cover of Lizzo's "Juice" is quite something:

    I'd love to dismiss her as Marti Pellow on different drugs, but Adore You is rather swanky. I might grab my raft for a quick "stream" later.

    This made it into my Top 10 albums of 2019. Very enjoyable indeed!

    Golden and Watermelon Sugar are the best things on the album. The former in particular just radiates melody, warmth and melancholy, it's a fabulous song.

    10 Golden
    10 Watermelon Sugar
    08 Adore You
    06 Lights Up
    08 Cherry
    07 Falling
    05 To Be So Lonely
    05 She
    09 Sunflower Vol 6
    07 Canyon Moon
    06 Treat People With Kindness
    09 Fine Line

    It definitely starts stronger than it ends but the bookends are both excellent and it's a beautifully well written and constructed album. Only his vocal sometimes needs to be pushed a bit further in my opinion. He has a great belting register, a bit more use of it wouldn't go amiss.

    I haven't listened to the album but Adore You is a really good single and Golden is great too. Adore You in particular could be something that Zayn came up with following on from his first album.

    Lights Up is a weird first single choice, there's SO much better on here.

    See I love Lights Up, and think it works great as an introduction to the project. This Adore You song though seems to be the golden single.

    He's really pulling it out the bag this time round. The last one started well and I liked the single but it seemed to only really be a one single project?

    Adore You is the best single he's put out EVER.

    I much prefer Watermelon Sugar, Golden and Fine Line, but it's a very decent song. Just a bit one-note/a tad too shouty.

    and in unexpected news, Stevie Nicks has declared this album the new Rumours.



    Is she back on the good powder? Why is she writing in that witchy ass font?

    And WHY does the PS. sound like SUCH a threat? :disco:

    Tbh, after the years of going around raving about TWILIGHT, I'm more than happy for her to be a Harry Styles stan. At least its not NIALL.

    It inspired her to come out of semi-retirement. "These stories have changed my life" :D

    Still loving the album. Glad that "Adore You" is becoming a legitimate US hit. It's definitely a grower, I love this Howard Stern live performance:

    "Watermelon Sugar" video:



    It's off to a slow start in America (gaining slowly at radio right outside the top 40). I think "Golden" would've made a slightly better choice if they were going for an uptempo although I enjoy both.

    Thing is, Watermelon Sugar (although my favourite of the singles) has already had its moment and has a big number of streams already so I don't see it going much further. This video was in the bank for a good six months I believe

    I also think Golden has a better shot (and is his best song) but hey, the album campaign has been pretty flawless and he's had four hits so good for him.
