I definitely prefer having the big singles end the album as opposed to getting them out of the way at the very beginning - it makes it a commitment to the album as a whole instead of instantly gratifying people with the stuff they already know.

perhaps, but what about writing a good album closer? ending thank u next with "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" was a strange choice

I mean you guys are presupposing that the artists didn't sequence the albums before deciding which songs to release as single (which also, especially for big artists, isn't necessarily even the artist's choice, or at least not entirely theirs)

Pop albums work well when the first half is immediate and the second half is deep cuts, this album flips that around and the result isn't completely satisfying. The album is sequenced thematically - breakup followed by the blossoming of a new relationship - but upholding that concept is to the detriment of the flow imo. I introduced this album to a friend and they weren't feeling it until I skipped to the closing tracks...

@Boney: Door is a perfect first single since it's an open invitation in both theme and sound. Problem is you can't slot it in the first half, have to weather the storm first. I don't think Polachek had a better choice for marketing the album.

Love how "Look at Me Now" is subtly in 7/4.

Pop albums are better when the deep cuts are first and singles last imo. I like how spread out the singles across the tracklisting are here

I don’t really pay attention to singles/non-singles so I don’t see all this fuss about where the singles are. Singles are just promotional content for the album, don’t see why they should be in any particular position.

Because the positioning of the tracks you've been oversaturated with before hearing the full album makes a difference to how you experiance the album, obviously.
