Such a beautiful album, love it more than Tough Love. Finish What We Started, First Time, Alone, Selfish Love, are my faves.

When music industry encourages mediocrity and GP likes what they serve them, of course Jessie is a non-event. But that makes her more special, in a way :wink:

I've listened to this album a few more times now and I'd say the album highlights for me are "Alone", "Selfish Love" and "Midnight", but I think that pretty much every track on "Glasshouse" is enjoyable and that it's overall a really nice album. Can't wait to check out her other albums, especially because the majority on here seems to think that they're even better than this one. :D

My biggest disappointment of the year tbh.

I think my expectations were too high following Tough Love.

Also agree. I think it sits a long way behind her first two masterpieces :(

I see a lot of you think high of Devotion. Don't know why but I never liked it.

How can you not?! It's one of the best debut albums I've ever heard. Running, Night Light, 110%, Sweet Talk, Imagine It Was Us, Wildest Moments... ALL 9/10+ songs.

I feel like she's completely lost her edge. 70% of the stuff on this album is so MOR.

Yeah this album doesn’t have the replay of the others

Alone and Last of the True Believers remain incredible songs though! Especially the acoustic versions

It just didn't click with me I guess, even revisited it today to see if I missed something.

I like Devotion, but I only find it to be marginally better than this.

For me, it’s Tough Love all the way - the replay value of that album, start to finish, is simply phenomenal.

Love Glasshouse more than Tough Love now, probably because it's fresh and I definitely overplayed TL.

The single best song she ever recorded IMO is Cruel.

I think Say You Love Me however will keep her in music for a long tine - that song has such good recurrent airplay figures.

You're right about Say You Love Me. Still having goosebumps whenever I hear it.

‘Tough Love’ the song is my favourite release of hers. It gives me shivers.

TALK ABOUT IT!!!!

I like a handful of tunes from Devotion but Tough Luh remains her best (it’s also the album I discovered her). I do think Glassheart is her most cohesive. A solid second place)
