July 29, 2020 on Succession’s Cousin Greg Just Dropped The Song Of The Summer

Both good not great, a bit overlong, trading the hooks and energy of their best work for perceived prestige, and ultimately letdowns for me. I liked Larry's take today: https://lastdonutofthenight.substack.com/p/19-thoughts-on-taylor-swifts-folklore Meanwhile James insists it's perfect.

I remember Future's deluxe Pluto going this route, which was obviously many years ago. But So Much Fun seems to be what started this current wave.
