Apparently Grimes is also a jewelry designer, and, um, yeah...

Very classy. I'll get one for my mother-in-law.

I absolutely love this album. Still can't get enough of Symphonia IX.

Grimes In Reality | The FADER

Excellent cover story on Grimes and her new album. I'm super-excited for this one. I loved Visions. I think only PJ Harvey is more anticipated for me this year.

Those two new songs are indicative of what will likely be another middling album from Grimes. She writes some of the best songs out there as tracks like "Realiti" and "Oblivion" are some of the best tracks of this decade. Period. But then she always loads her albums with so much forgettable drivel like that SCREAM track above.

I've been addicted to Flesh without Blood lately. Listening to it a lot.

"Flesh Without Blood" is amazing. "Scream" I have little desire to ever hear again.

Yet if RYM is anything to judge by, "Flesh Without Blood" is sellout teen-pop and "Scream" is hypeworthy.

:bvs: Flesh Without Blood has a 3.45 and Scream has a 2.76.

All Grimes albums are inconsistent as hell, but as long as Realiti is on it, as well as a few other solid singles, I'll be happy with it. That's about what I expect from her.

"Realiti" is on it, but in a different version and - in my opinion - worse than the previous/demo/video version. I suspected that this new album was going to have some moments that are too polished and it confirms. "Realiti" is one of those moments. It still is a great track, but it sounds overproduced now, comparing to Grimes' previous albums.

It's funny, I was listening to her talk about the album yesterday on Sirius XM, and she said she anticipated a lot of people were going to make comments about it sounding "polished" - that exact word - and essentially that she didn't care, as she finds lo-fi limiting in a lot of ways.

There are some fucking killer tracks on this album, especially the run of "Flesh Without Blood", "Belly of the Beat", and "Kill V. Maim". I love "Realiti" in either version, but I'll take the demo's vocal take over this one.

"Scream" is basically unlistenable though and the album overall is patchier than Visions. I don't get why "Life in the Vivid Dream" isn't after "Flesh Without Blood" like in the music video. Its placement second-last makes "Butterfly" seem like a bonus track.
