I've been DABBLING just a bit lately to find out if I've been missing out.

Angel Down remains excellent, and I like Hey Girl. Million Reasons was a good single but has been a bit overshadowed, although the Superbowl performance remains seminal. And I suppose I can fuck with John Wayne if shit gets desperate.

Otherwise it's just a STONE BORE to me. Not because it's not "pop", just that the songs are dull. Perfect Illusion is surely one of her worst ever - what were they thinking? Tuneless shoutfest. For some reason it's completely revered on Popjustice when in fact its video was its only redeeming feature.

Angel Down and Million Reasons.

I tried to listen to Dancin in Circles the other day, and rather than being the fabulous Ace of Base knock-off I remembered, it was more of a TWANGY SHOUT-FEST. Can't say I was here for it as much as I wanted to be.

Angel Down would have been a fabulously demented Christmas single, with suitably dramatic video to compliment.

Diamond Heart, Joanne, Million Reasons and Angel Down are my takeaways and some of her best songs. I had two close friends pass away in quick succession around the time of the album after long battles so the song Joanne itself is quite a tough listen when i remember visiting them in their last weeks.

I still look fondly upon Joanne, Million Reasons, Hey Girl and Grigio Girls, and I get lots of personal enjoyment out of Perfect Illusion even if I can admit it's a mess and not for the masses.

Perfect Illusion is still incredible, but other than that the only ones I go back to are Dancin' In Circles, and occasionally Angel Down and Million Reasons.

Million Reasons, mainly.

I quite like Joanne and John Wayne too.

Oh God absolutely none of them.

Also 'use'. Have a better word.

Is USE the new word with hip swingers? I might start a “Which songs from the Rosie Ribbons albam do you still use?” thread. Personally I like to use ‘No Space To Rent’ to torment the chinchilla and also ‘Colours’ makes for great bum wipe and sauce thickener. I bet old Beardo McWeirdo @Suomi uses them all the time to rub himself off to, but that’s the gays of today for you :gross:

It's a Popjustice thing.

I can leave the entire album to be honest, nothing there worth revisiting. The same goes for the dreaded Shallow.

A-Yo, and Dancing in Circles still slap, and perhaps controversially I love Just Another Day.

Despite loving the rare moments of balladry on the other albums, I found most of the slowies on Joanne blend into one interminable snooze. Give us ANTHEMS, not DEAD AUNThems.

"Dancin In Circles" was the only one I regularly went back to... although I remember liking "Joanne". And, er that's it. I need to give it another try, though.

Anyway at the time I enjoyed Diamond Heart, Perfect Illusion, Sinner’s Prayer and Angel Down and didn’t really take issue with any of the album, but I can honestly say that I haven’t “used” ANY of it since about a month after release.
