    I've got into this album the last couple of weeks. Very good indeed.

    And surely Comme Des Garçons will end up as a lip sync for your life/legacy at some point.

    This album really is equal parts EXHAUSTING and BEGUILING, isn’t it?

    It’s like listening to a full album of Azerbaijan Eurovision entries.

    I don't know what that means, but it's just getting better and better for me. I'm so glad this album seems to be sticking around (on Moopy if nowhere else) in terms of people still discovering it, even if it might have taken an awards show exclusion scandal to do so :D Anyone who likes the album might also enjoy the RINA EP from a couple of years ago:

    You all might be interested in this reaction, which really goes into the production side of the album

    I found the bits I watched (Bad Friend) interesting, and I personally don't have the time to watch it all but thought I'd share

    I hate reaction videos but the more love she gets the better IMO.

    I hate watch all of his videos. He's SO annoying and constantly pausing to make a point, then revealing he has NO idea what he's talking about digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole until he finally GIVES UP and puts the song back on. But apparently I enjoy it :(

    My album of the year

    Just really, really excited by what she's doing. The mixing of influences and genres for me is just *chef's kiss*

    It's one of the best of the year. Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys) is a bop and Bad Friend has such a unique topic for a song

    I really liked STFU and Who’s Gonna Save You Now and Comme des... is cute but the rest of it didn’t really STICK.

    "Chosen Family" gave me what I believe young 'uns call "the feels".
