    With Britney's multiple breakdowns, Christina's career demise and Jessica Simpson presumably on the reserve list for the next series of Dancing With The Stars, I feel a little vindicated that GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE, EMMY NOMINEE and ACADEMY AWARD ATTENDEE Mandy Moore has pretty much come out of the class of 1999-2000 in the best career shape, even if it's not necessarily for her musical accomplishments.

    Anyway, she's back with her first new release in a decade, and while it won't be lighting up the charts I do think it's rather low-key lovely.

    I’ve been listening to this a lot this morning and was actually thinking to about you @VoR

    I think this is rather good. I still bloody love the Wild Hope album and it’s bitter lyrics :disco:

    I hope this one is a bit more INTERESTING now that she's ditched Ryan Adams.

    I definitely think, like that article says, she has a lot to talk about.

    Back to bitter like All Good Things and Nothing That You Are :disco:

    I only really posted this as a curio, but it’s actually quite gorgeous, isn’t it?

    Really nice lyrics, too.

    I love it.

    I absolutely loved “Wild Hope” too.

    We’re getting a new song on Friday called ‘I’d Rather Lose’

    No expense spared:

    Album is called Silver Landings, it's out in March

    And she's released a new song from it:

    I think it's going to be a very NICE album, in a good way.

    I’ve been listening to these songs a fair bit, I’d Rather Lose is probably my favourite, but the standard is really high.

    Also the curse of @VoR strikes, as Jessica Simpson is bringing out some new music with her book. :side-eye:

    Fourth 'single' released from the album:



    It's sweet, and quite personal, but feels much less radio friendly the three before it.

    Loving the new 'VoR diva of yore' approach of releasing 18 buzz singles before an album that spends a sole week in the top 100. :disco:

    She must be more of a household name in the US than she was a few years ago because of This Is Us. But I don't know if that will translate into sales...

    I'm sick of her constant victim syndrome disowning everything that she did for struggling pre-teen gays in 1999, she comes across a bit fo a dick with these lyrics.
    Listen you whiny bitch, if it weren't for that fucking FEDEX EMPLOYEE you wouldn't be where you are, so suck it up and own it.
