I kinda liked the new single. Definitely have to give it some more spins, but it wasn’t bad at all.

"I think Taylor Swift is one of the best songwriters ever."



He added, "Taylor Swift is cool, because she's the closest thing today that hearkens to Michael Jackson -- to great, great pop music. There's a difference between her and Gaga and Katy Perry and Lily Allen and all that. It all feels throwaway, comparatively." - Jack Antonoff

i am unabashedly pro antonoff's earlier stuff (strange desire, melodrama, probably some other stuff that evades my mind) and some absolute bangers here and there since but it's just becoming diminishing returns for me

antonoff's sound relies on slightly tasteless levels of polish and caters to an audience who likes things to feel slick while there's just a tad more going on than there needs to be. it has a vaguely cloying feel in that anything it touches will immediately evoke a range of suspiciously slick albums that should have no business being placed in the same ballpark

this worked for Lorde because it was where she needed to go after her bare bones debut; the leap here sounds a lil precocious in a way that her lyrical voice wears v well, and the album's treatment of excess and disorientation kinda calls for a trendy paint job. whether this is still an angle that'd work for her is another matter

it does not work for artists whose songwriting is already too clean and who overuse the same hooks way too much to begin with (Taylor)

it does not work at all for artists whose dull songwriting desperately needs a breath of life or some thread of instability (LDR)

it kinda works for St Vincent tbh because her songwriting and palette are more mercurial and benefit from a Antonoff's unifying touch, but this backfired big time on Masseduction because the boi is too clean to make anything sexy

it will not (has not?) aged well and i doubt it'll have a retro revival

comes across as very low-effort for a lead single after a four year wait. pleasant but eh

Weeb that was one of the worst comments I've ever had the displeasure of reading in its entirety.
