Cannot wait - Bittersweet is otherworldly!!! She sounds fantastic, the music is deep and rich, and the lyrics took me there - if the whole album is anywhere close it will be a release to be reckoned with for sure.

Agreed that "Bittersweet" is *chef's kiss*

Though, admittedly, I'm much more in love with the vocal performance she gave on the 'Colors' performance of the song. Her cadence and melodic phrasing there is so much more...precise? sharp? than (what I presume is) the actual studio recording version which is more...loose? ambient? Yeah, that's it I think.

Though I'll take new Lianne music any way I can get it, lol.

Her stripped down live performances are so much more engaging than the overproduced album cuts. Midnight from the Blood album is probably the most obvious example for me. Tokyo was my favorite song off of that album though. She is an indie artist. I hope she accepts it.

It's a really fulfilling record - totally lived up to the hype built by the early singles, maybe exceeded it.

Weirdly enough, and I like "Bittersweet", it's literally the song that made me check out this album....and it's my least favorite track on the album, primarily because I don't completely dig the piano-focused bridge.

In response to Reply # 27


          

Listened to the original and the cover side by side a few rounds yesterday. I love how her cover isn't *drastically* different if looked at component by component but the whole thing comes off *feeling* like an almost new song. Little things, like elaborating/drawing out the weird chords at the end of the bridge.

And re-imagining the "here at the bottom" ending with a stacked chorus is wholly genius.

Can't get enough of it, and glad it's made me pull out In Rainbows - haven't spent much time with Radiohead in a long while.

I just listened to this album for the 1st time. She's a name I heard but I never listened to anything of hers before today.

As soon as I finished listening, I was salty at OKP. "Why didn't they tell me how good this album was before today?!? Man, they're slippin'!"

Because it's y'all's fault that I didn't listen til just now.

Seriously, this album is fantastic. I'm runnin' it back and I'm fairly certain it'll get many more spins. And I gotta put my people on to it too. It's one of the best of 2020.

I got into her because her first single was put out when iTunes was promoting a free "Hey, check this out" single every so often.

Me and few other people here gave her props when she debuted.

Really great talent and her first two albums are worth it if you haven't heard them.

There's a few where the chords sound like some 2020 Neptunes shit, and I love 'em. I was kinda hit and miss on the last album but this bangs all the way through.

Paper Thin and Bittersweet basically the same song?

NIce laidback record, but I’d like to hear her work with someone like Van Hunt, just to work out song structures a little bit more.

I read it as intentional -- a variation on a theme if you will. It worked for me.

But...the record started wearing thin for me by that time.

I’ll always check for her.

42. "this is probably a stretch"
In response to Reply # 40


          

but about half the songs on the record feel kind of like a suite to me, relying on similar pacing as Bittersweet, stripped-down guitar-led arrangements, and even bits of chord changes that are reminiscent of Bittersweet:

Bittersweet
Green Papaya
Paper Thin (obviously riffing on/lifting from Bittersweet)
Please Don't Make Me Cry (this one's probably the biggest stretch)
Courage

Part of me wonders... not so much if they were conceived this way but if there was a least a bit of intent or consciousness here. Regardless, I like how well they hang together, almost providing a bit of a thread through the album...
