    I agree with her being overrated, the songs are good and I like the lyrical direction but it's hardly anything groundbreaking and the production is really lacking. I can't stand the original version of Royals, The Weeknd's remix is x100 better!

    I like every song except Ribs and Still Sane.

    Glory & Gore is my favourite. I'm just in love with the album. I'll admit the songs are very samesy. The lyrics venture around the same subject matter. But she's reproduced a forumla that's really great, so every song is catchy.

    The production by Joel really lifts the album, it's what elevates it from basic indie pop.

    I just find it refreshing.

    Got my copy yesterday, haven't listened to it all yet, but I'd already heard the preview, so theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere......

    Ain't gonna comment on all this "overrated" stuff. I've been listening to her since March, still digging what she produces...but that might be because I'm officially stanning for her. The real test will come with the 2nd album methinks.

    Had a read of the thank you notes on the way home yesterday & I adore the bit where she says something about how she might hate this album down the track because that's in her teenage nature, but for now she's proud of what she's done.

    I might download this. I'm a bit bored of the hype around her already, living in New Zealand and all though lol I went into the record store the other day and her album was ALL OVER THE PLACE. Like they had stands of it in about 25 different places in the store

    I liked the Love Club EP, so I'll probably like the album too.

    excluding Royals, Tennis Court and Team, Buzzcut Season is my favorite, followed by Ribs and Glory & Gore!
    overall on first listen it's a good/alright album!

    Finally got my copy yesterday and listened to it. It's a nice debut album, but there's nothing outstanding. "Royals" remains the best track.

    I was expecting this to be a repetitive, headache-inducing mess, and was so surprised! It's so well crafted. Only thing I dislike is the fact that Team and Royals reuse so many of the same motifs, but aside from that, BRILLIANT! If the world was a fair place, this would be doing so much better than Flopdele's generic 21 mess.

    It's a quite good debut album but it would be so much better if the productions were a bit more complex.

    I love the emptiness of this album. You can just float around in it

    I think that the production is the strongest aspect of the album!

    Sad to say this, but this album does nothing to me....
    ? Girls' Generation ?
    ? HyoYeon ? Britney Spears ?

    Girls' Generation is the best-selling girl group of all time.

    +1

    It's what really makes this album good.

    One of my faves, if not favourite non-single track.

    I'm addicted to this album right now. At any given time, one of the albums songs is always stuck in my head. So I listen to it... Again and again.

    White Teeth Teens. The melodies are so ridiculously beautiful and strange and amazing, I've run out of adjectives. It's indescribable, I don't think I've ever heard any song like it.

    I'd also like to add that the production on this album is stunning. The airy, sparse, alternativeness combined with pop song structures and accessibility; I live for albums as original as this.

    Production on this is still irritating me, fair enough if they wanted to do sparse but this is no The xx is it!?
