So, recently in my boredom, I have found that listening to random albums is awesome (Last night alone listened to Britney Jean, SXTN, Bangerz and Witness), so I thought I would give this a chance. You post an album for me to review, and I'll listen to it.
Only three rules to give everyone a chance: 1) Make sure you're not double posting, B) Make sure the album is on Spotify, makes it easy, and 3) To make sure nobody spams the f**k out of this, I'll limit it to 3 nominations a Day, so like post once then post again a little while after
I am so sorry for just seeing this! I legit thought nobody responded to this!
Bwol is first, doing Prism Deluxe! For some of you, I did a live review on Discord, but I forgot my scores, so here goes nothing on a second listen!
Roar: Since Day 1, I'll admit I've always thought this was just an average song, however lately I've been appreciating little things about it, and it's a decent way to start this album. 3/5
Legendary Lovers: This is easily forgettable. I appreciate Katy's speed talk, but that's all, and even that's forgettable. 2.5/5
Birthday: Bad song with decent effort put in, especially in the instrumental. 1.5/5
Walking on Air: Easily the best song so far, this is essential 90's dance, and Katy hit it out of the park. 5/5
Unconditionally: .5/5, nothing more to say but this is ear bleeding at it's worse. Everything about this is a trainwreck, and the only thing saving it from a 0 is how epic the background music is.
Dark Horse: I used to hate this song, but now I just hate Juicy J's part. 4/5
This is How We Do: 1.5/5. Only thing saving this is it actually is a bop, in the sense of i'm bopping my head, and this song isn't Unconditionally....but between Mariah Karaoke and THIS IS NO BIG DEAL.....No bitch, this is a big deal, NEXT
International Smile: Again, Forgettable but somewhat enjoyable. 2.5/5
Ghost: Katy has had good ballads, bad ballads, and Unconditionally, and this is a great ballad. 5/5
Love Me: HOLY HELL KATY! 2 FOR 2! 5/5. I'm actually starting to enjoy Katy again, c'mon girl BRING IT
This Moment: Again, excellent 90's inspired song, and we are going 3/3 on enjoyable songs!, 5/5
Double Rainbow: 4 OUT OF 4! YAAASSS!!! Hell, I'm gonna break my own rule, 6/5!
By The Grace of God: 5/5. I don't know what it is about these last few songs, but I actually want this album to get a reasonable * rating now
Spiritual: Oh...a brick. Good, but after the last five songs, this just hit the brakes. 2.5/5
It Takes Two: 6/5. Easily my favorite song, even after the first listen! I love Love LOVE this song
Choose Your Battles: Very Very Enjoyable, Great way to end the album. Not Perfection, but damn near close. 4.5/5
1. Never Be The Same 2.5/5 2. All These Years 4/5 3. She Loves Control 5/5 4. Havana .5/5 5. Inside Out 2.5/5 6. Consequences 3/5 7. Real Friends 3/5 8. Something's Gotta Give 6/5 9. In The Dark 1/5 10. Into It 6/5
3.4 Stars Out of 5
Summary: I still HATE Havana with a burning passion, but honestly she has really great potential, and has definitely came a long way from X Factor. I may not like her, but I definitely respect her
1. So What 2.5/5 2. Sober 5/5 3. I Don't Believe You 5/5 4. One Foot Wrong 3/5 5. Please Don't Leave Me 4.5/5 6. Bad Influence 6/5 7. Funhouse 4.5/5 8. Crystal Ball 4/5 9. Mean 2.5/5 10. It's All Your Fault 2/5 11. Ave Mary A 6/5 12. Glitter in the Air 2/5
Summary with the exception of 4 songs, this is damn near Pop Perfection. How is this my first time listening to this album in full? Thanks Mylo
