Discussion in 'Pop' started by OutSynk, Jul 16, 2020.
I’m finally listening to the album and so far I’m enjoying it.
Jark is definitely a bible of sorts.
Jark is a whole fucking religion beb
I mean, really, @Jark I'ma letchufinish and all - but to try and claim that Smile is some kind of opaque Tori Amos/PJ Harvey/Bjork type cornucopia of lyrical metaphors dressed in sunshine & bubbles & sparkles is frankly ludicrous.
good job i didn't try and claim that then isn't it, beb, and sad for you that you can't read!
Pitchfork went off. they gave it a 5.7.
@Jark @HeLikedTurner here's the critic who did that, just in case you want to send threats about taking things to court...
I'm more annoyed that pop music fans on a pop music forum are incapable of having any kind of reasoned discussion about the merits of the album and are instead making cheap jokes for easy likes than I am that some jaded critic with a stick up his ass thinks it's no good (given that with his opening paragraph he reveals he has never understood Katy Perry anyway and embarrassingly relegates her music to the shopping mall sound system)
I'm glad you have found your voice darling but don't ever speak to your MOTHER in that TONE again!
it's the NATURAL ORDER of things to stick two fingers up at those who GAVE US LIFE
Actually shaking and crying to the album now. I’ve requested all the mean posts in this thread including mine to be deleted.
Got my pic disc and signed card this mornin'!
Time for my first listen party. Deliver me, Katy!
I put this on.
I'd RATHER be DRY
But at least I'm ALIVE
I'll say THAT much.
You know what, I like her and find her immensely creative. Sometimes I think her output doesn't match her vision which seems manic & larger than life truth be told.
My fave perf was when she was as big as a house and her water was about to break and she was running around through tinsel screeching about daisies.
that is just lovely. I really appreciate the visuals and how every one is completely different in concept and execution but tells a cute little story.
she looks AMAZING in the Champagne Problems video (and also the twin of Emily Blunt)
this is amazing innit, especially for the last 4 years or so. During Teenage Dream she was practically Zooey Deschanel's long lost twin sister.
remix from the UK's current #1 artiste
This is looking to fall from top 10 to the 80s on it's second week in the USA /
As a pop fan I'm genuinely fascinated by this campaign. It's going to be one that's picked over for years to come.
She really put the promotional work in too (and whilst pregnant).
I hope she's not already having to dip in to Daisy! Daisy!! Daisy!!! college fund
I don't think her current level of success is surprising really.
She was huge with 'Teenage Dream' and had some big hits since, but she's never really felt like the kind of artist whose hits were totally tied in to their own star persona, and I don't think she's connected with a loyal fanbase in the same way as some of her peers for that reason, so she's more dependent on all the stars aligning for her.
The album is terrible. It deserves all its success.
it is not terrible whatsoever what a crock of shit.
Tucked, Cry About It Later, Teary Eyes, Only Love are all wonderful. She has more essential albums - well, the debut and Prism at least - but if you like Katy Perry's brand of pop it's hardly as if she's LOST IT. She's doing more or less what she's always done with this album, and doing it pretty well.
I mean, I never stanned, but I can't deny the singles from Teenage Dream
Nothing from this album (even Never Really Over) comes close
nothing on Chromatica comes close to Born This Way or Alejandro, which doesn't seem to have prevented you from stanning and gagging
Yeah the album is fine. Weakest out of the last 4 but still plenty to enjoy.
Replay and even Rain On Me are better than BTW but I¿m alone there, I've always hated BTW with a passion.
I have to cancel.
Babylon, Free Woman, Rain On Me, Stupid Love, etc. are all up there with Gags's best.
Just writing the titles leaves me stanning, gagging, shaking, crying, and so on.
I guess Katy's just... not for me. There's room for everyone on the Billboard charts... I guess!
I never liked Alejandro THAT much
I mean I have Ace of Base albums already
Your most offensive post.
i mean it’s good but I would NEVER put it as one of her best. Not even the best on the Monster EP
I don’t want to hear it.
I agree with @Diddy. Alejandro was a cute third single.
Alejandro is arguably THE pop song of the decade. by anyone. I can't believe this homophobic slander. on my Moopy!
Just ignore the boomers.
