It's...so good. I want to listen to it right now so bad, but the stream is just unbearable. I don't know why it won't work on the Internet here, but on the school's network it works fine.

Streaming on Pitchfork Advance, is it? I'll need to give it a listen.

I find the peril of going into an album when I already know a bunch of the tracks is that I latch onto them and under-rate or find slightly underwhelming the tracks I don't already know.

However, in this case it really does seem like the singles we already had are the standout tracks.

I think track 3, 9 and the closer also stand out as great. Brings the total of standout tracks to 8 of 13 for me.... Not bad.

This album could lose a couple of tracks but for the most part it's as consistent as I could expect from a pop debut.

I think my favorite part about this album is the spoken word bits. That English accent is just gorgeous.

T'pau!

You wouldn't think you'd hear their influence anywhere, lol.

Yeah, I'm increasingly coming to rate "Take My Hand", "Black Roses", and "Lock You Up" on a par with the older singles. There's some stuff in the middle that really needs to go though. Good god "Cloud Aura" is terrible.

Nuclear Seasons, Stay Away and Lock You Up are the real keepers here.

Here's the timeline of me listening to True Romance:

Tracks 1-5: Fucking ecstatic
Track 6: Still enjoying, but not as much
Track 7: A little bored...
Track 8: Holy shit this is so bad, but at least it got me out of the funk I was starting to get into, oh wait, Ok, it's not the worst song ever.
Track 9-11: Really, Really Happy
Track 12: Weak
Track 13: Fucking ecstatic.


So, really, if it weren't for track 8, I might get a little bored there in the middle. Instead, it takes me out of the album for a moment, and then actually brings me back into it at the same time.

Not sure why you don't rate "How Can I", Ashley. It's one of the weaker tracks, I'll agree, but it's ahead of "Grins" and "Set Me Free". Maybe "What I Like" too.

As for LM's keepers, I agree, but definitely add "You're the One". At the moment I'm inclined to suggest it's her best song, just ahead of "Nuclear Seasons" and "Stay Away".

Also, much as I enjoy "You (Ha Ha Ha)", every time I hear it I just want to listen to Gold Panda's original instead.

You're the One is pretty fucking good yeah. Great chorus.

Cloud Aura and How Can I just don't work.
