Re: Pop Music Discussion Thread

I know there are a lot of Brits here, so may I ask: anyone here a fan of Robbie Williams?

He's the most successful artist to come out from a boy band. Yes, he has sold more records than Justin Timberlake. Since 2010, he's pretty much my favorite solo male artist. Everything about him is just so interesting: his flexibility between genres, his provocative lyrics, his humming and whistling, his tongue-in-cheek music videos, dat body, and dat ego. I understand he didn't break through in the United States because he was too unique and way ahead of his time. His recent stint with Take That is also worth a listen. And let us not forget their epic concert tour in 2010-11.

Here are my top 5 favorite songs from this extraordinary man:

1. Road to Mandalay


2. She's the One


3. Feel


4. Angels


5. Go Gentle

Oh shit, these are good . Much better than 90's music which I dug a lot.

Re: Pop Music Discussion Thread



Eventually I'll do a more detailed review for the album after it has been fully digested. What's for certain is that Lana Del Rey's bold risks resulted in a collection of lean, hauntingly beautiful tracks. Ultraviolence still displays her characteristic cinematic aesthetic, but it finds a balance than Born to Die and Paradise failed to do.

"Money Power Glory", "Pretty When You Cry", "Fucked My Way Up To the Top", and "Old Money" were the highlights of Ultraviolence IMO. Especially "Money Power Glory", my favorite track from Lana yet.

Re: Pop Music Discussion Thread

That's the kind of track that'll be genius in a movie, but sitting here listening to it is doing zero for me.

Re: Pop Music Discussion Thread

I only gave Ultraviolence one quick listen, although I already bought my copy. On that listen I preferred Born to Die. Gonna need to listen again.

In my opinion, Born To Die was better than Ultraviolence. Born To Die had different styles of rhythm, compared to Ultraviolence, the songs kinda sound the same.

Re: Pop Music Discussion Thread

I gave Ultraviolence another listen and I would put it third after Born to Die and Paradise. Its a more unified album than the debut album and EP, but it feels far too dreary. I preferred the tracks on Born to Die because to me each track feels like it has an identity. On Ultraviolence a lot of it flows through, almost like one long track. I do really like the title track and "West Coast", but outside of that I'm a bit disappointed.

I bought ARTPOP a couple of weeks ago and today picked up The Fame and The Fame Monster. I forgot how many freaking great jams were on The Fame Monster. Debating on whether to pick up Born This Way to complete the collection. Not to fond of that album outside like one track.

Born This Way rapes, pillages, & plunders. Then rapes again just b/c.

Haven't listened to Ultraviolence yet. Really need to get it.

ARTPOP is amazing. Her best album if you ask me, followed by BTW
