    And the day came when the risk it took to remain tightly closed in a bud was more painfully than the risk it took to bloom

    "Side To Side" is nice, a great collaboration, too.

    "Side to Side" and "Come Up for Air" are both lovely.
    You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.

    Concerning the collaboration, I have to admit that I don't care about Nicki Minaj in "Side to Side". She doesn't make the song worse, but she doesn't make it better either. So I think without her the song would be as good as with her.

    It's sad that 'Side to Side' became the biggest hit from 'Dangerous Woman' because there are much better songs on there

    That makes me even more curious about the album, because I really like "Side to Side", but if there are even better songs on "Dangerous Woman" then I'll really enjoy the album.

    Many people seem to praise the album. I'll be sure to check it out in the next few days.

    Thank you for all your comments.

    "Getting Warmer", "Side To Side" and "Come Up For Air" are all brilliant, so fantastic Top20 so far!

    A shame Skylar is not more successful. I've also finally really discovered her this year, despite knowing her for some time now as well.

    I'm glad that you like the songs. I agree with you, Skylar Grey should be more successful. She's really underrated, unfortunately. :(

    It's great to hear that you like it. What do you think about "Come Up for Air"? You mentioned that you would check it out, that's why I'm asking.

    ^ Oh yes I did! It sounds good, but didn't catch me enough yet. I should give the whole album some spins, though! Saved it to my library and hope I will have some times the upcoming weeks.

    I would say that "Come Up for Air" is definitely a grower. It didn't catch me immediately either, but I really started to love it after I've listened to it several times.

    I realized that there's a mistake in my comment for "Full Blown Love". It should say "Broods' music" and not "Brood's music", because they're called "Broods" and not "Brood".

    I liked On What You're On but it didn't lend itself to performances so despite being on every show going they couldn't make it a hit :(

    "On What You're On" is so catchy and radio friendly, it definitely deserved more success. :(

    A mess for Aura. IMO, the change of the artist name was a big mistake. For example, her Spotify fans didn't receive any kind of notification. (They merged the profiles now, but it's too late ...). I really like the song ...

    I also think the change of her name was a mistake and it could be a reason why "Love Somebody" and "Indian Giver" flopped. I hope that she and her team will be able to save this era, because her music is still good.

    I never got into Aura's 2016 songs, however I still look forward to an album. Can't believe it's been already 5 years since "Before The Dinosaurs"! I have always been a casual listener, she even liked a picture of her debut album on my instagram, that made my day!

    Yeah, her last album was released way too long ago. :(
    That sounds great, it would've made my day as well.
