Olivia Rodrigo

I agree with you overall, but think Teenage Dream works in this way too. Starts like the rest of her ballads but a big ending really elevates it

Listening to the new one now, some great stuff in this. Will definitely be returning to it.

Thought the debut album was really much of nothing - this one does a lot more for me BUT BUT BUT BUT its a bit of a mess isnt it? Feels like its kinda made by committee - covering the balladry stuff she was known for and getting involved in the pop punk revival simultaniously - both are done well though the pop punk stuff is for the most part the highlight for me hopping back n forth like that makes the album an inconsistent listen, especially as were apparently hopping back to the same ballad - a lot more creativity is needed there. Probably one where I end up grabbing a handful of tracks and throw into my fav playlist seems the way to go as an album it doesnt work

Growing in me tbh

Think only Logical is a skip from the ballads for me, all the rest have some cool textures or crescendos to them - and all the loud tracks are straight up bangers

its official - get him back! is The Song of the Delayed Summer 2023

She feels massive to me but then again Lorde was only at Academy level on the Melodrama tour

OR at Barras??
