    • Ironically 2020 has been very good musically so far. I usually have 2/3 albums that I love max for the last few years. It's hopeful that music is in a better place.

      Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
      Bob Dylan - Rough and Rowdy Ways
      Mandy Moore - Silver Landings
      Lana del Rey - Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass (I do count this as an album personally)
      Brandy - B7
      Ray LaMontagne - Monovision

      Tori's album is supposed to come out at some point this year and also Lana's new studioalbum in September!
      Anna von Hauswolff is dropping an instrumental album soon which I'm also very excited about!



      Soundscape on point.

      • The one good thing 2020 will be remembered for is music - especially from the girls.

        Oh and Tiger King!

          They really are over

              The VMAs are even less relevant than iChunes tbh.

              • I'm sure that the VMAs would be more relevant if they were more about artistry rather than popularity.

                  They haven't been relevant since 1992 or so. I remember 1999.... the only time apart from 2005 that I watched it live. They had Mariah and Whitney on there... I don't know any of the acts that perform there anymore.

I am struggling a bit with tracks 13 to 16 but the stretch from one to twelve is flawless.
                    Same here!

                    Sometimes when there's a string of slow, mellow songs, they all kinda blend into one long song for me and I think by the time I got to "August", my attention to detail was dialed down. The lyrics are really quite accessible since we've all had at least one person we put on a pedestal to the point where we centre certain parts of our lives around their availability, and I actually can't think of a song that addresses the emotion of that kind of relationship the way Taylor did on "August". I am in love with the song right now and I'm slightly shook by it, tbh.

                      Plus the instrumental is amazing too. That last whole minute is superb the way it builds and builds. There is a very "live" feel to the instrumentals on this album on certain tracks and it really works well on August. I havent thought about this guy much this week so I am sure he will be in touch soon to reignite my hopes again, even though I know it's pointless I'll have him for a few hours before he disappears again for another fortnight !! ( He is so hot I will never say no though haha)

                                  I can't believe I forgot to mention Jessie. That might be my #1 fave of the year so far.

                                      Do you think they'll consider her for a nomination? I feel like she's incredibly underrated, although she did get a lot of rave reviews this time around...
                                      It would be nice for her! But the Grammy's...ehh.
