CHARLI XCX - POP 2 (ICONIC NEW MIXTAPE)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

"Hello Ms. XCX. This is Mr. Shankly. That one song Track 10 is promising but nobody could put it on at a party. Could you put the chorus on something a bit more radio friendly?"

This.

Track 10 is one of my favourite songs from a pop artist released in the past few years. The new version reminds me of covers like this one which I just cannot approve. Sorry if I'm no fun.

i don't ... like this

it's not awful, but nothing added made it better. the vocaless chorus actually made it worse? these are usually used when choruses are too weak and that's just not the case here so it's strange.

probably would have benefitted from an approach that robyn songs take. swayable enough light disco and drone the fuck out of the chorus.

This sucks. I mean, it's not a terrible song or anything. But toning down the brilliance of Track 10 for mass consumption? All the meat of the song is gone. 'Future-pop' my arse.

Really disappointing.

i haven't heard the new song yet but pop 2 might be my favorite release of the decade so far and track 10 is a goddamned masterpiece as is nearly every song on that!!

I feel like this is going to end up in a fast and furious movie. Lizzo's laugh is a terrible way to end the song even if it's a callback to the beginning of it. Such an awkward feature.

It's really special to me too - I'm gonna avoid listening to this now so I guess thanks to everyone for the impressions.
