    well BOTH of their first two albums were about unrequited feelings, so... :eyes: SHE'S GOT FORM

    It baffles me that THEIR Wikipedia page only uses the correct pronouns unlike on the Spanish and Portuguese entries all you see is HIM HIM HIM, the french one is inconsistent calling THEM a HE randomly. I hope it pisses THEM off. Bunch of cunts.

    The fact that How Do You Sleep? is a bonus track is just too tragic.

    Neither Sam nor Ariana exactly slaying the sales game

    1 Ariana Grande - positions (13.5k) *
    2 Sam Smith - Love Goes (12.9k) *
    3 Cliff Richard - Music... The Air That I Breathe (10.9k)
    4 Bruce Springsteen - Letter to You (8.0k)
    5 The Style Council - Long Hot Summers: The Story Of The Style Council (5.3k)

    I'd guess they're looking at 18-20k by Friday. Streaming should push Ariana closer to 30k.

    I love this album. It's just what I need for these dark winter nights incoming, and certainly Sam's first enjoyable front-to-back effort.

    I added the two banger singles and To Die For - gives it a much more balanced banger : ballad ratio. here's my loon rate

    08 Young
    10 Diamonds
    09 Another One
    10 Dancing With a Stranger
    09 To Die For

    09 So Serious
    08 For The Lover That I Lost
    09 Dance ('Til You Love Someone Else)
    08 My Oasis
    08 Breaking Hearts
    10 How Do You Sleep?
    08 Forgive Myself
    07 Love Goes
    07 Kids

    :disco:

    I don‘t think I‘ve ever listened to a whole SS albam so might give this a go* unless Spotify subsequently spews their old songs in my face à la that time I decided to become a lamb and unwanted Mimi recommendations started appearing after I’d realised it was all a horrible mistake and I’d rather listen to Biophilia in a vat of cow brains and head cheese

    *NOT NOW THOUGH BECAUSE I’VE GOT ARCA ON

    Well this album is quite good so far. Also, no overly obvious autotune which always gets a :disco:

    I absolutely love the album too. It’s his first album that I’ve really enjoyed from beginning to end.

    is anyone still stanning the LIVING TITS out of this album? It's so brilliant.

    holding quite well in the top 5 with decent sales - hope they keep pushing it with a big CHRISTMASSY BALLAD PERF or two on UK TV.
