          Just remembered this is being released tomorrow actually

          XX sounds like straight out of Madonna's Confessions on a dancefloor Seems like Song 1 melts into XX like an interlude.

          Love And Appreciation sounds like a mix of Here comes the night & Fingers Crossed.

          Selfmade is A BOP Y'ALL GAGGED Sounds like straight out of St. Vincent's Masseduction

          Magic Still Exists (song) starts off like a power ballad, very Whitney. But I guess it will transform into a dance bop after (feels like it).

          Actually it's a great album I guess! But the interludes just makes it so short (even tho they make sense in the continuation of the album but still).

          She could've easily added 2 more songs.

            Previews sound good. Excited for this. Still sad there aren't more songs on this.

              Surprised that Magic still exists (song) is actually a ballad! Thought it would transform into a dance anthem towards the end.

              Pretty song! Such a beautiful melody.

                I’ve been waiting for an album for years now, especially since she dropped Limelight and I Trance and the quality of her new work blew everybody else out of the water.

                I’m going to revisit this album as I don’t want to ‘give up’ on something I waited so long to hear… but personally, it did nothing for me. The interludes felt pointless, as if they were there purely to bulk out the track listing (couldn’t she have done the Lauryn Hill Miseducation thing and placed them at the end of the songs?) and the new songs on the album feel unfinished or of b-side quality.

                It’s just my opinion, and that may well change given time. Maybe Agnes releasing such high quality singles over the past few years has set the standard unreasonably high, but all the new songs do for me is highlight how good 24 Hours and Fingers Crossed really are, and how good others like Nothing Can Compare and Goodlife were.

                A special mention for the title track, however. A lovely piano-led close to the record.

                Shame, I actually feel a bit gutted not enjoying this release.

                    Fantastic album, flows so well from start to finish. Even though it's just an interlude, The Soul Has No Gender is just brilliant! She's kinda giving me Robyn - Body Talk vibes with this!

                      Sadly I did not find anything to get my attention other than the songs that been released already.

                      As for the interludes.....no comment at all!!!

                        She would stand around after she had set the table and listen to the family give, in unison, thanks to the long-haired man whose gaze always turned upward – probably because he couldn’t bear to see the havoc wreaked in his name.

                              It's really good, it just doesn't make any sense as an album, she sure could have done two more songs without those interludes, they don't add anything.

                              Worst song it's Selfmade, other than that, awesome tracks. Also, "Goodlife", "Nothing can compare" and "Limelight" fit pretty well in here so at least you can make a 9-10 album track with those.

                              Hopefully she releases more soon, she seems on a roll lately after being on a 7 year hiatus. I want a real full album this time though, and physical if possible.

                                I really thought that Goodlife would be part of the album.. but Limelight, I Trance and Nothing can Compares are on the EP from the same name...

                                      It’s a shame this is so heavy on the interludes. Aside from the three singles, Love And Appreciation was the standout.

                                        XX is my favourite new track on the album, but the 3 pre-released tracks are far superior to the rest

                                            There's two demos on Youtube. "Trust in me" & "Autumn Breeze" from this album.

                                            She could've easily added this two tbh While Autumb Breeze has a different sound than the rest of the album, Trust in me could've fit perfectly (with refined production).
