Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
It's always darkest before the dawn

I didn't think about it but you're right. This is by far her most cohesive album to date.

@jorge. Fix that title my OCD is driving me nuts. XD Track 8 bb. ahaha

I've been feeling this since it got leaked that morning. Easily in my top five, maybe even top three. I think if I take "Twice" out and just put it as its own category to be #1 because I love singing ballads, this is probably in my top three. This is such a damn bop. I can't stop dancing and singing to it no matter how many times I hear it.

Yet it’s still so versatile.

In this regard I feel it even surpassed Stripped. I think the short length just made the whole experience stand out more.

In love with that flute!


I guess this isn’t making such a big impact because it was just released last week

Mixed feelings; why am I thinking of Christina's and Matt's relationhip when I hear this song?
I enjoy this song but not sure if its one my favourites.

I hadn't heard it since the leak and it sounds much better in the album (And I already had loved it before) it sounds a bit sped up from what I remember.

It flows so well with Right Moves.

Growing on me. Sounds like an Ariana Grande song. Hate the rap. It makes no sense and bores me. Id like this song much better without it. Live the vibe once she kicks in though.

Still one of my favourite songs.
It flows so naturally out of Right Moves. It feels authentic, the rhythm is great, and she delivers a little bit of everything: soft voice, rapping, mellow chorus, and a few belts and high notes in the end.

If Christina was black, she'll get tons of grammys in the R&B/soul categories just stuff like this. It's a pity she's a blue-eyed blonde and will always get stuck in the pop categories while certain kleptomaniac artists keep on passing their poppy songs as R&B

I do like Christina's vocals and the lyrics, but the melody doesn't do it for me.
Sometimes the wrong instrumental can really make a difference. For me, it's the same with Still Dirrty. A track I could love with a different beat.
The opening rap verse goes on forever though, shame.

Anybody else reminded a bit of "Genie" towards the end? When she sings, "Can't do it like I do, baby / Can't do it like I do, honey" sounds so much to me like "I'm a genie in a bottle, baby / Gotta rub me the right way, honey".

Anyway, love this. Love all of it. Not a single track I'd skip (apart from "Dreamers" if it didn't feel wrong to do so).

One of my favorites! THAT'S how you mix Christina with hip-hop, in my opinion. And she is such a BOSS in the song:

"Boy you already know my story. You were raised in all my glory"

I'm yeaaaaaaaah! Tell them. Demand them all the respect you deserve girl.
who owns that throne after all anyway, Max???

She does all of that with a softer voice than you wouldn't expect, and that is always great, when you're caught out of guard. The surprise effect is what I love the most, and the lyric and melody...I could listen to it all day, easily.

You have to be in the right mood for Twice. It's kinda melancholy.

Don't understand why people forgot about this song. It's better than Pipe. 2nd best song on Liberation after Godcelerate.

I would say MUCH better than Pipe. I really don't get all the hype for Pipe.

This. After I heard it I honestly started wondering why they chose Accelerate as the first buzz single. Perhaps she was contractually obligated by Kanye or something.

LID is her best midtempo EVER!
