I like it! It's so Magnolia / Bachelor No. 2 era :disco:

It even has echoes of the WHATEVER album

On first listen I like it but don't love it. It's a bit like Mental Illness crossed with the songs from Magnolia. So I get the concept. But I think I need some time with it.
It’s always more time with Aimee for it to unveil itself. Bachelor No2 and Lost In Space took quite a while with me, now they are two of my all time fave albums by anyone.

When I went into the record shop just now they had 3 cds. When I left there were none (yes, I only bought one). #soldout

The album grows on each listen for me. ‘In Mexico’ is starting to push herself front and centre. The album charted at #53 on the Album Sales Chart.

There are songs I enjoy individually but as a whole the album leaves me a little cold, in particular some of the arrangements.

I think the run from Burn It Out to the end is probably the most consistent part of it.

It reminds me so much of Whatever! The Queen Of Pop's transatlantic multiplatinum album on the alt gay '90s shart.

“Now you’re split in two
And each side still isn’t you
And you know how that sounds
But it keeps being true”

Apparently my vinyl's been dispatched but I'll believe it when I see it.
