Cherry Blossom is really the Lonely Weekend of the album, deadass.

I think the lyrics being basic(?) is what made this album so special to me. It reminds me a little of Flowers for Vases from Hayley. They went straight to the point of their feelings and this made the record being raw (and great).

  3. cherry blossom - it’s a bop, but not 100% sold on it - 8/10
  4. simple times - 7.5/10
  5. if this was a movie - the chorus is excellent but i feel like it’s missing something? idk what - 7/10
  6. justified - this is growing but that “if i cry just a little and then laugh in a middle” line makes me :dies:- 8.5/10
  7. angel - so simple yet so beautiful - 8.5/10
  8. breadwinner - 7/10
  9. camera roll - 9/10
  10. easier said - 9/10

  12. keep lookin up - 7/10
  13. what doesn’t kill me - 8.5/10
  14. there is a light - 10/10
  15. gracias a la vida - what is going awn, the production is …, the last minute wtf. i’m not sure what to think - 6.5/10

 

Overall - 8/10

I'm OBSESSED with Easier Said. Maybe it's starting to click after all. :jonnycat:

Really loved the album, a lot of highlights. The only problem I have is that some songs end up sounding a bit the same sonically (simple times, if this was a movie, angel, camera roll) at least at first listen I couldn’t always tell them apart, unlike her previous material where all sounds were more unique 

 

with that said it’s also the first album of hers where I don’t have skip or a bad song, even GH had a skip here and there 

 

overall an amazing record, proud of her :clap3:

Easier Said and Keep Lookin’ Up grew on me so much :flame: my favs after a couple of listens are still Simple Times, Angel (the subtle thunder sounds!!) and What Doesn’t Kill Me. I agree this album is definitely not as good as her previous albums. Especially following Golden Hour, which somehow feels super… effortless? Like all the melodies just clicked right into place for that album.  But i love love love the dreamy vibe and sonic evolution in this album :clap3:

Y'all were right with camera roll :cries:

 

She did witchcraft on that song. Idk if its the lyrics or if its the effect applied to her voice or her vulberable delivery :cries: or maybe all of the above :cries:

 

She did THAT. The classic Kacey :cries:

This is amazing. Why were all of the reviewers trying to tell us it sucked? I especially love this album for the simple juxtaposition next to Golden Hour. How tragically beautiful!

Stunning album, as expected from Kacey. It's so simple and restrained. Honestly, I don't feel much of a sonic difference from Golden Hour outside of a few songs. She might have gotten a little more pop-focused but the album still feels country to me from the songwriting style, melodies and the acoustic guitar in most of the songs. It has the same chilled out easy-listening vibe and I love that. I actually think I prefer it to GH (which is her worst album for me, Pageant Material supremacy btw!). It has the same vibe but higher highs on first few listens. 

 

Camera Roll, Breadwinner, What Doesn't Kill Me, Simple Times and Good Wife are the standouts I feel.
