Me too actually. I remember thinking that at the time as well. I was sick to death of that whole mess, any station any song was EDM it was disgusting. And then this album came out and it was literally like an oasis.
I was iffy on the lead single, it grew on me in time though, but loved the whole album instantly. Well, almost the whole album to be perfectly honest.... I still despise I Was Here (one of her worst songs ever and if they HAD to have a Becky ballad on there why they didn't go with the superior God Made You Beautiful, I've no idea) and 1+1 has lost some of its initial luster as far as I'm concerned, but overall this far and away stands as her best record no doubt.
Amazing piece of work. I'd love nothing more than to have another album like this from her and fall in love with her as an artist again. And by another album like this I mean in the sense that she would get back to sanging her heart out and singing MELODIES, not a record in similar sonic direction per se.
