I really love Florence. Saw her open for CSS in London about 6 years ago when her first material was just coming out. Had never heard of her, and she woke everyone in the room up. Lungs was great. Ceremonials won me over even more. Love spinning that vinyl here and there. When the first songs for HBHBHB (better acronym than BBHMM), they didn't really grab me. And now I feel silly because hearing everything together is super pleasing. Power on, Flo! Lots of tracks are standouts on here.

You and I are on the exact same page. She's the one I'm also waiting on with bated breath.

This is my favorite band. This is my favorite news. I am so thrilled to have a new Beach House album for my 29th year. I cried.

Love Shamir. Not sure if the album as a whole is hitting as hard as I'd hope. Mainly just want to say that the Brandon Flowers album is perfect pop. Hope it doesn't get overlooked because he's not "hip" anymore; it's soooo good.

This was terrible. First, she barely performs her crass, misanthropic, money-worship tune, and then she becomes Saint America. I might dislike the lyrics of American Oxygen even more than Bitch because at least Bitch is specific. Has there ever been an emptier, vaguer song about the USA?

They made this for the Tumblr GIFs, right?

Lorde, too!!! She seems like a natural fit for this.

As someone who saw the Yeezus tour, I realize Kanye's performances are great spectacles with very mediocre performing.

Top Tier Album. This rules so much, especially after my initial listen left me a little underwhelmed. Then, it grew and grew. My JAM.

Alright, that does sound pretty cool. This is all I know from him, and I wasn't loving it. But my mind is happily changed.

So you guys (assuming most of you are guys) don't find his lyrics misogynistic?

Love the past songs release so far, so this is disappointing. Young Thug, you get to rap on a Jamie XX track, and you think, "Cool, let me use this chance to reduce women to their 'pussies' and their ability to ride you." Pretty weak for me; I don't get that whole thing. And the music in this isn't grabbing me. Too monotonous.

Brandon Flowers put out two of my faves this week with "I Can Change" slipping in right at the end. He's making some sweeeet pop music; I love him.

Realized nobody had commented on this, and it deserves a comment. Such a great tune. Maybe the slightest of the four released, but it still sticks with me. Catchy and happy.

I disagree. I think it's a very relatable point Flowers makes. Kanye has a lot of misogyny threaded throughout his work. He also glamorizes superficiality (like in a lot of rap). And though he constantly preaches about creativity, his recent output relies on negativity to be cool. That, and Kim seems silly, and Kanye's clothing line was rags.

Uhmm, Brandon Flowers is 2 for 2, and this new track somehow escaped the blog. https://youtu.be/vX5fAb76r-U I think it's pretty swell. Album is shaping up to be a fun listen :)

Ha, yeah. I loathe that Rihanna track (misanthropic money worship songs are the worst), but it would be kind of interesting to hear "Sad Bitch Better Have My Money."
