I dig the vibe overall, but it seems a little short on HITS. I find nothing on the level of Lost or Thinking About You from the last record.

Where the hell is A$AP Rocky on the album version of Nikes?? The video version is way better.

After first hearing Nikes as a music video, hearing the album version with no deep voice of A$AP Rocky is a disappointment to my ears. The video version is way more interesting.

Bipolar Sunshine's Daydream is SO good. Should be (or should have been) a mega summer hit, but it's not even available on US iTunes or Spotify, only a less good remix. Been driving me crazy. One of my favorite pop songs of the past few years.

My personal purchasing arch happens to follow the overall arch just because of when I happened to get into vinyl, the then spent a ton of money building up my collection. Now, 500 LPs later, my list of albums I want & don't yet have on vinyl is so much shorter that a couple years ago, so I purchase far less these days. Also, 2016 hasn't been all that strong for great albums in my opinion. Anyway, fascinating article.

Solid List. "Coffee" a bit higher tho. And Sia's "Alive" should be somewhere in there, like in the 20's.
