Demi - 'Dancing with the Devil... The Art of Starting Over'


Recommended Posts

justin.

Tell Me You Love Me remains my favorite Demi album, but I respect that she needed to make this album for herself. I’ll definitely be adding some songs to my playlists.

The packaging is so gorgeous. I'm getting Hilary Duff Metamorphosis vibes.

This actually was not half bad, people are way too harsh on Demi. A solid 7/10.

 

Top 5:

Met Him Last Night

The Art of Starting Over (needs to be the next single)

Butterfly
Easy

Carefully

overall, even though there’s no straight up bad song, it could’ve lost a handful of tracks and been a lot stronger. the production is really clunky in a few songs and her vocals are hidden more than ever before, which isn’t the worst thing I guess because sometimes her voice can get a little grating. I’m not sure if it tops TMYLM but it’s definitely in her top 2. here’s a less bloated tracklist:

 

Anyone

Dancing

The Art

Lonely People

The Way

Met Him

Carefully

The Kind

Easy

My Girlfriends

California Sober

Good Place

 

I’d give it an 8/10

They're harsh because "the bigger the star, the bigger the target" :mandown: And they can't stand her talent and the fact that she's a household name that's always talked about.

RIGHT, I just go through and listen to the album again, no skips :WAP: it's like you have to do that in order to get the complete story! Like the intro says, Demi takes us on a journey with this album :clap3:

EXACTLY. It's literally one of the most personal popgirl albums I have heard in a VERY long time. It paints a painting of that dark period of Demi's life and also of the healing she did after words so beautifully. It's a concept album through and through without being tacky. Also I loved her vocal delivery on like 90% of the tracks. I think she only oversings in like 2 songs. That's it. The rest are all tastefully sung. The melodies are so beautiful. A lot of the tracks are French pop inspired like "Art of Starting Over", "Melon Cake" and "Kind of Lover I Am". They have a very French pop sound to them in a way. Very romantic sounding in the melody and production aspect. Makes you want to stroll around in the streets of paris in the summer time. A romantic yet nostalgic and sort of sad sound to those songs. Idk how else to explain it. 

I'm just so impressed. This album blew the rest of her albums out of the water. Seriously her best work thus far. I knew it was going to be good. I was hyping it up for a while even when Lovatics themselves were saying they were worried or w/e. I just felt it in my bones she was going to SERVE. So proud of her :clap3:

If I was able to drive (which unfortunately I can't, due to my sight impairment and physical disability), TKOLIA would be blasting in my car, it's such an earworm and I think it's becoming my favourite, such a chill bop, don't mind the outro either  :jamming: :jamming:

DWTD needs playlisting. For this album to have legs, it needs to be properly playlisted
