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.
It just tries so hard to be something, but it never quite gets there, for me. I feel the raw emotion for a second, but then it never crescendos into anything else.

Pretty much I'd rank it something like:

Best Songs Ever ZOMG!!@!!?##:
Nuclear Seasons
Take My Hand
Stay Away
Set Me Free
What I Like
You're the One
Lock You Up

Great Songs:
You (Ha Ha Ha)
Black Roses

Good:
Grins
So Far Away
How Can I

WTF?

The Dogs enjoyed it. The Dogs do not know how often they will come back to it, but The Dogs gave it a good few listens and were pleased.

The Dogs feel that 2-3 tracks will make it onto the next playlist they build for themselves for general listening at work now and then.

Grin and Take My Hand seems to be the tracks The Dogs like best.

If they misbehave, yes.

I encourage mayhem when it comes to The Dogs.

Hearing Charli on my radio every day is really getting to be bittersweet to me. I know it's her, but does anyone else?

But she's being pretty cool about it:

Quote:
Do you ever wish you hadn't given that track away?
No, never. My album doesn't sound like that and it took me so long to make this album. If I had taken that song I would have had to re-write the whole f**king album. It wouldn't have come out until 2018.

Would I like this record? Which song should I listen to as a test? Maybe I'll just wait until she releases her fourth album and just listen to that.

Edit, nevermind. I just did a quick google search and then clicked google images. I'll be purchasing everything she has ever released.

Bee En Em.

I'll give this album a shot based on So Far Away, which is quite great. The review described it as having the "sun-dappled lushness of The Avalanches".

I agree with the score. Really great album, not quite worth SUPER effusive praise, but it's a strong pop album that should be given special notice so the BNM is cool.
