Nelly's "The Spirit Indestructible" has BOPS

Recommended Posts

Parking Lot & Waiting for the Night go OFF

 

I'm not sure if "Big Hoops" was the best lead single (even though it's a bop too). Thoughts?

I really thought this album was destined for good things after i heard TSI live - before the album version was released...a dud lol

 

But Big Hoops, Parking Lot, Waiting for the Night, Bucket List- all so good

Waiting for the Night song AND video are so good omg, deserved lead :jonny6:

 

The 12-track standard edition, Hold Up, End of the World, Don't Leave Me, and the underrated Skylight - WHEW. A 1-16 PUNCH

 

Shoutout to the phenomenal Miracles as well

Circles has gotta be my fav on the album, SO ahead of its time. I feel like indietronica is actively seeking out that sound nowadays :katie2:

but yeah Waiting for the Night, Parking Lot, and High Life are all bangers! Waiting for the Night should've been the lead, and maybe it wouldn't have flopped so hard :'( Big Hoops is cute, but definitely not as representative of the album as the three I mentioned

I'm a sucker for perfectly-timed-to-the-music winks in music videos or live performances :jonny2: @naval23

Amazing album. I think it's my favorite from 2012.

In my mind it is a successful era with multiple hits :heart2:

Wait, so you're telling me TSI would have an even lower Metacritic score if they didn't count the exact same AllMusic review twice??? This album was ****ing ROBBED. The critics were mad that "there was no hits on the album" (like the initial low reviews for Anti said :cm:) and mad that it sounded ahead of its time

Love this one too!
This album is good! It felt kinda displaced in 2012 with generic EDM dominating the world, but if you actually could give the chance, it would surprise you.

Sis, you didn't even mention the best songs on the album :skull: 

 

Circles, Miracles, and Bucket List go OFF

 

And the bonus tracks/b-sides are spectacular as well. Hold Up, End Game, Play, Skylight, and Soak It Up >>>>>>>

 

Hopefully Nelly decides to go back to her pop roots for her next album (if she ever releases one :skull:) The Ride was... not good.

Same feeling.

 

TSI is my fave album of her discography... full of hits!

 

Big hoops, circles, wftn, parking lot.

 

Also she was very beautiful in that era.

A criminally underrated record (just like Foklore and The Ride) from a criminally underrated artist! I loved this record and its euphoric, positive message... I have played all the amazing songs on it (bonus tracks included) until death :heart: 

 

I respected her for releasing BH, but if she went with the title track (I remember believing she had finally another hit after hearing the live premiere), WFTN (that outro still knocks hard), Miracles or BL as the lead, things might have gone slightly better. It was literally painful watching her flop that hard with such a good record.

 

I really hope that they upload it on Spotify and, more importantly, that she decides to bless us with new music soon.
