Y'all, it's been five minutes, and I still feel like I'm cringing from it. I hate this. I hate it.

I think I actually grimaced after I hit play on that instagram.

"And if you look to your left, ladies and gentleman, you can just make out what is called a "stan."" [The tourists coo and gasp. Shutters click and eyes peak out over viewfinders. A white-haired woman touches her husbands arm, and he smiles at her in excitement. They're here together. For the first time in decades, the land beneath their feet is different, the people around them strangers. They have only each other, and the feeling of each other, that strange energy conjured up between bodies, making them acutely and painfully aware of one another, that we sometimes categorize as love, reverberates quietly, as if slowly warming up after neglect. Today, legs squished in metal seats on the bus humming through the streets , they're relieved of the medical debt, the overgrown lawn, the extra laundry in the hamper, the miscarriage, the layer of dust upon the bookshelves, the affair, the stares at Wednesday Bible study, the layoff, the broken A/C, the lost sister, the arguments, the moments after arguments that hang like veils in the sticky summer night, the vague feeling a wrong turn was made somewhere colliding two bodies together better off passing on by. They're here together. They're happy. As the guide motions to the other side of the bus, she coughs and hides the blood on her hand.]

Well, it is heavily rumored.

It's actually not one continuous shot there, is the thing. The director of the special, Alfonso Cuarón, is really good at hiding that sort of things.

OK. Time to go listen to the album now.

I like it! It kind of reminds me of the self-titled in production (though not necessarily the form of the song itself), which I find kind of odd since I figured a lot of that was Tom's brainchild. They really are 17 forever, though, huh?

Where did you get this info? Did you just comb through it? I thought I had recalled finding a list of BNM albums on Wikipedia once, but I don't see it there anymore.

But, don't you know? TLoP is a masterclass of a statement in its messiness and desire to ignore any statement!

This one is the album to beat this year, I think.

Yeah, I think "Hold Up" is the better song, but I think "Sorry" is the one that's better suited to getting blasted at a party with everyone dancing/singing alone in abandoned. Plus you can say "suck on my balls." What's not to love?

Yup. I can definitely imagine him singing that last line.

It sounds more like Enya's "Sail Away" than anything imo.

Also, the poet who wrote them is pretty legit: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20160425-theres-more-to-warsan-shire-than-the-beyonc-video

I joked to my girlfriend when we were watching it that I would bet money they had The Thin Red Line playing on a monitor in between takes.

The spoken word feels more Malick to me in intention and execution, though that form has been hijacked by advertising. I think it works here, though.

Personally, I'd bump "Sorry" up to at least OMG. I think the transition from the conflicted self-consoling to anger to "you know what fuck you" run is my favorite part of the album. I'm also a sucker for that beat tbh. "Freedom" is a mother fucking jam, though.
