I'm guessing the vinyls are finally out
Yep, my vinyl arrived on Friday!
Yeah it is. And sold out on Amazon. I presume they’ll restock and it’ll eventually not be £33 or whatever the fuck it was.
Remember there's all the bespoke vinyls too with the multiple sleeves...I wonder if they'll stagger the delivery, the same way they did with the CDs.
Ready to crown “Seven” the song of 2020. That is all

The run from "Mirrorball" to "This is Me Trying" is a SERVE
For me, it's all about the 2nd half of the album. The first half is low-key acoustic Tay-Tay and has some really wonderful songs especially The Last Great American Dynasty. But on "This Is Me Trying", there is a real shift - the unusually horizontal vocal lines, the descending chord sequences of the verses, the deep reverb (very unusual for her) and the frantic delivery in places and THAT lyric; this is powerful, powerful stuff. After that, she really stretches out and produces what is, for me, her best work ever. Maybe "Peace" doesn't quite come off - in other circumstances, it would have been worked a bit harder, I feel - but elsewhere, she brings maturity and experience to topics she has previously covered - fate, infidelity, fractured relationships, maybe even bereavement depending on how literally you take "Epiphany" - and the results are absolutely thrilling. I've spent a lot of time with this album, more than I have with any of her previous albums and I have high hopes that this is the start of Phase 2.
so it turns out the Disney+ sessions thing is the ENTIRE ALBUM LIVE. here's Exile
proper winter push for this song immediately please.
all 17 live tracks now added to the album on Spotify too.
I'll have to dedicate some time to this later today
