I still disagree with that decision. Time flies by so fast that 5yr Old albums seems like it was released 2 or 3 year ago. Retro is meant to reminisce on the gold ol days. 5yrs is still current if you ask me.

With that said...yikes!!!,

It's her best album. No need to question her urban songs as she does it best but "Jealous", "XO" and "Pretty Hurts" are among her best crafted pop songs. She could have done an I Am... Sasha Fierce kind of promo for this by taking time putting out both urban and pop-leaning songs out but she focused on the whole 'I'm selling it as a whole visual experience'. :roll: :roll: Sadly, only "Drunk in Love" and "7/11" were the only songs that were able to benefit from this era. :-? :-?

The reason we took the decision to reduce it to 5 years is because the genre sections were getting flooded with older albums and singles. And this was then stifling discussion on newer music.

But we take the point on board, maybe a bit further down the line we should consider renaming The Retro to something else.

In terms of this album, it's her gold standard - it's an incredible record.

Thanks for advising Wayne.

On this album, it’s one of those “where were you on this day” moments.
I recall waking up on that Friday at 6am and checking UKMix pop section and this was there. Then I saw the cover and was like “Why is she releasing unofficial albums or an EP?”
Then I saw the tracklist and all videos included and also thought “probably cheap ass videos too”. Then I checked iTunes and the rest was history. I googled WTF was happening and was shaken! Stirred! Rocked! My a$s felt flossed :lol:

Masterpiece. Greatness. Perfection. Never gets old. "Drunk in Love" still sounds fresh to this day. "Mine" should've been a single. Better than LEMONADE but not better than 4 though.
