I’m so happy that Lady Gaga is back making real music again, the stripped down Joanna stuff didn’t do it for but it showed off a lot of range and showed off her talent as a songwriter.

Chromatica is great, it’s a true album too and I really appreciate that. Put the album on and don’t skip any tracks, it’s a ride. The instrumental interludes really brought everything together. Very influenced by French house music and disco, would love to see a Daft Punk collab.

New Taylor Swift album is essentially a The National record ft. Swift thanks to Aaron and Bryce Dessner.

Never thought I'd be saying this about a Swift record, but it's excellent.

seems like you're diminishing swift's contributions to the record incorrectly ^

Folklore is incredible, literally one skip for me and her most cohesive album yet.
Like All Too Well was stretched and turned into a full album.

Most of the album's songs were already demos/written by Aaron, so I don't think I really am. Her contributions are great, but the entire backbone of the record is the production/instrumentation (the latter of which Taylor had little to no involvement in according to the official credits).

Which was the skip, m4?

all of them make it clear it was a huge back and forth collaboration, so it just sounds weird you're taking away some of the acclaim from Swift and giving it to these guys by calling it "basically a National album" instead of, at least, naming it a byproduct of their shared ideas. just sayin'

It's a little bit of both. I also got Lana Del Ray vibes on a few of those songs.
