I just feel like I'm going to be disappointed with this.

Didn't really like Sanctify and not a fan of the album title.

Communion was an exceptional debut, I hope they don't suffer the old "sophomore slump".

I hope Years & Years haven't completely disowned their pop roots as that's what made them become so popular in the first place. :(

I really enjoyed Santify at first but it didn't have that longer lasting appeal and i felt like i got over the song a lot sooner than i expected.

Sanctify has grown on me but I feel like they’re going to take themselves a bit seriously this era.

Hypnotized hits harder than Sanctify. I'm still curious though.

Looking forward to this! For me, "Sanctify" is better than "King", so I have high expectations for the album.
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

Communion is (good but) overrated, but I'm ready for this. I do hope that this record is more conceptually driven than the first, because I think they're capable of putting out a solid body of work in that vein. I'm wishing them all the success in the world with this regardless.

The best pop music, after all, is written by outsiders for outsiders.
"I think so," he agrees. "Pop can be a Trojan Horse. You can dress it up as a dancehall banger but actually it can have a deep meaning inside of its shiny coating."
That's exemplified on Hallelujah, a frisky disco track about the joy of dancing with strangers that also looks at the loneliness of random hook-ups.
"I used to go clubbing a lot, and a lot of that time it was because I wanted to meet somebody," explains Alexander.
"I just wanted to find a connection and it didn't matter who it was, sometimes. There was a real, almost dark energy that was propelling me to keep going out. But there was also a redemptive quality to doing that.
"I think a lot about how clubs are almost like queer churches. You go and congregate and you dance. That's always been a sacred experience for me, although it's been both positive and negative. I wanted to write a song that flitted between those two things."
