I’ve only had a few casual listens with my headphones and love it. Even if it’s not the kind of pop I’d usually listen to on my own. It’s clean, simple yet powerful and some of the more melodic tunes gave me garbage (the band) nostalgic vibes. So far love it.

I listened to the album with a pair of really old headphones I found yesterday and let me tell you, it was something else lmao. its low quality made the album sound ever more like a late 90s/early 00s club banger lol . :giveup: charli’s mind istg

:flippy:

anyway, who’s she singing about on “girl, so confusing”? lorde or marina? my bet is marina, since lorde has praised the record and attended a “brat” show last night or something.

also, I’m curious if Charli’s the first female artist to subtweet about Taylor on a song…

She doesn’t need to hide behind metaphors and analogies to make her points across, she just says what’s on her mind and in her heart without dressing it up as something more grandiose than what it really is. 

exactly this, I don't know where the idea that 'simplistic is bad' is coming from, some of the topics she covers paint her in a less than ideal light, which ultimately just show she's human as well. The repetitive aspect is something I can see why people might not enjoy, but it's an electronic dance record, repetition is kind of an intrinsic attribute, and at points is used to enhance meaning of the songs. The production keeps it interesting for me either way!

End point, don't necessarily think things need to be drowned in metaphor and allusion to make an impact or come across.

I've seen a lot of confusion about the recent Metacritic scores for Charli's Brat and Taylor's The Tortured Poet's Department, so I wanted to share some thoughts to clear things up.

First off, it's important to understand that the music industry in 2024 is in a unique place. The market now demands authenticity and bravery from artists. It's not just about catchy beats or deep lyrics anymore; it's about making bold moves that push boundaries and challenge the status quo.

Brat is a perfect example of this. Yes, the beats might not be groundbreaking, and the lyrics might seem shallow to some, but what sets this album apart is its rebellious spirit. Charli has done something subversive with this release, and that's what's being celebrated.

It's a disruptive move in the pop music landscape, and that's how we keep the genre fresh and exciting! Rebellion and cultural resets, whether they hit the mark or not, are crucial for artistic evolution within the zeitgeist.

TPD has a score of 76 on Metacritic, which has also puzzled some fans, considering the commercial success the record has had. The issue here is that Taylor, despite her immense talent, played it too safe. While she does include some confessional lyrics, much of the album consists of embellished facts presented as poetry, which has turned a lot of us off. It lacks the raw, daring edge that the current music market craves.

So, it's not just about the quality of the songs themselves. It's about the impact and the statement the artist is making. Charli's album is being recognised, quite rightly in my opinion, for its sheer audacity and the shake-up it's causing in the pop scene, and that's why it has such a high score.

Hope this helps to clarify things!

 not joking, you should be a journalist/music reviewer. i said what i said.  :ally:

Keep it cute please. I've cleaned up the arguments.

Little Charlies (yes, I will call you that) have no reason to be upset at all when she's raking in critical acclaim like no other queen currently is. Just bask in your fave's glow and let people who dislike this album (*cough*me*cough*) remain confused about the 95 :river:

This.

Everyone creates their own reality. 

It is only right and respectful to allow people their creative freedom.

@PartySick is currently creating confusion instead of clarity (on this subject) and that is OK

Imo, he has every right to feel confused since the mods' workload is excessive and he's probably tired of bullsh*t by now.

To the Little Charlies, keep it respectful, or leave. Nobody is forcing you to stay on a Gaga forum.

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
