So yall have listened to the whole album?! Overall thoughts sisters!!!

Idk if it's hype from hearing it in full for the first time, or sleep deprivation cause it's almost 5am, but it's amazing. I feel like once I listen to it in HQ with the 4 other tracks we already have in order it'll be a masterpiece.

Its a very decent album. For the first listen my instant faves are Maria, SOS and Pipe. But all of them have amazing production. I feel like favorites will change over time.

The only one I didnt feel was Deserve.

My company is sending me to @London. for the next month. I’m mostly excited, but somewhat anxious. I fly Sunday, so I only found out a few days in advance, and the added responsibility is kind of scary, although an amazing opportunity. Any suggestions on what I can do while I’m there?

You are gonna die, sis. :shook: It is even more cohesive than we have all been expecting it to be.

I didn't understand how Twice and FIL could be on the same disc as LID and Accelerate, but the vocals and the vibe tie the whole thing together. She has somehow pulled together 90s R&B, gospel, soul, and funk.

Even Sick of Sittin gave me some minor Penitentiary Philosphy teas. :cry: There is soul all through this album. I fucking cannot.

For those that don't want spoilers, listen to the instrumentals here:



0:57 is Pipe.

1:44 & 3:18 is Maria.

2:45 is Deserve.

3:44 is Liberation.

Not at all. :rip: Only similarity is the layered vocals, but it's much harder than Love Drought. It has a beat but it's still very emotionally charged.

Lowkey feel like Searching for Maria should've stayed a part of Maria. I get why they split it, but it's so meaningless on it's own.

Also I Don't Need It Anymore really should lead into Sick Of Sittin' considering she chants that in the song. Weird that it leads into Accelerate.

I can hear it with the instrumental, but the way she's singing is more... funk then rock. But I can hear the comparison.

It does have that aggressive psuedo-rock vibe to it, so I can see the comparisons.
