Lorde... what can she do?

Her first album and everything she's done so far is amazing to me.

Her new track is good but not amazing.

Is she done being amazing?

The right answer can end this thread quick.

Am I a twat?

Re: Lorde... what can she do?

Definitely a twat but anyway...

You're correct, her first record was awesome, new track not so much.
Maybe that makes me a twat too.

I see this thread going nowhere.

I've listened to that song Royals quite a bit. I kind of like it. My daughter digs it though so that means its on fairly high rotation.

I don't know how I could possibly expect you to answer this honestly but...

Have you heard Pure Heroine?

I ask because I thought many of the same things as you until I actually sat down and listened to some of the stuff I was so against. Pure Heroine being a prime example, great record.

Re: Lorde... what can she do?

I wasn't familiar with the lady prior to this thread so I looked some of it up on youtube. It's really not my thing, but if you're into the singy stuff I'd imagine it's pretty ok. Given the things I enjoy listening to I've learned not to criticize other people's tastes, as mine are pretty fucked up all things considered.

There didn't seem to be a discernible quality difference between the "Royals" song and later stuff. Maybe the later stuff is a bit overproduced. I appreciated the minimal production of the earlier recordings, so maybe it's that?

Pop music can be shit but it can also be great. The only reason why you probably don't like is because pop music has a stigma from people who think they're "above" it. Because you know? They listen to "real" music.

I'm sure people can say the exact same stuff about the music you like as well.

'Pure Heroine' is pretty freaking great! I honestly thought Lorde was overrated, which is why I didn't listen to it when it first released. But giving it a chance, I regret not listening to it sooner when I was in high school because I would've loved that shit back then.

I still think she's overrated though. As in, too many people hype her up too much and give her waaaaaay more credit than I think she deserves.

Nothing. It's music, you either like it or you don't on an emotional level. Nothing wrong with not liking it. The idea that people should like things based on other people's opinions is ludicrous.

There might be things you can appreciate about it if you try. If you're someone who likes singing, you might appreciate that she can sing pretty well. You might like the lyrics if it's about something you can relate to. You might think the recording is mixed really well. Or maybe you just give it a pass and let other people enjoy it while you go listen to the things you like. Appreciating aspects of the music doesn't mean you have to like it or listen to it, they're just things you might take away from it in passing.

There's an error here and that is you can't escape this terrible music..can't go anywhere without being bombarded by this godawful racket..the bookstore, a restaurant, a privately owned restaurant, a jobsite at work..you really don't have a choice it sucks

An hour ago is the first and last time I listen to Lorde. I might have heard her name in passing but I couldn't tell you anything about her. Does nothing for me, going back to listening to the sea wash in and out. I just don't go places where they play music, and when I do I ignore it. I've gotten pretty good at tuning things out. Slowly going deaf in my old age helps. FWIW I know there's a rapper named Kanye West but I've never heard his music, or if I have I didn't know it. That's true of most everything 'popular' these days, I just tune it out. My kids think it's funny how 'out of touch' I am. They don't understand that it's by choice.

it's all written by like 3 or 4 people so it all kindof sounds the same..
