That was easily my favorite song they written since Every Open Eye. I actually loved this song so it's a massive improvement to me over anything on their last album

in all fairness this song is really good, in stark contrast to how awful the previous single was

Love is Dead was awful but still managed to have a banger or two, which is about what I'm expecting from the next one

I, too, remembering being enamored with this band's first record, then completely forgetting about them. Robert Smith sounds better on this track than the lead singer. His voice suits the music haha. I dug it a lot more when he came into the track.

Robert is obviously the best part. This band's popularity baffles me. They're just glossy pop crap with overproduced vocals and an insufferable lead singer. But hey, to each their own.

their first two albums (particularly their debut) are remarkable and the songwriting is top-notch. their more recent work, eh

i feel like we've all been quick to say that this band has gone down hill when so far it really was just the 1 album. a single bad album doesn't define a group.
even the singles they've released since love is dead and before this were much better (Out of My Head, Death Stranding).

Robert Smith does nothing for this song.

Decent track though. One of their best refrains in a while.

Really don't understand how Lauren is an "insufferable douche." Odd insult.

How is she an insufferable douche? Some dude at a concert yells 'Marry me' and she accuses him of being a misogynist. She's a little trigger happy to jump on the 'All dudes suck' train, and to top it off she's not nearly as cute or funny or twee as she thinks she is. That last part is my opinion, of course, but still. She's insufferable.

Catcalling female performers on stage is misogynistic, my man.

Oh, come tf on. He wasn't showing extreme prejudice toward her for being a female. He was yelling something out at a concert. I get it if he called her a derogatory name, but we have to draw a line. Catcalling isn't automatically misogyny.

Harassing women isn't automatically misogyny? What a take.

I believe in this specific instance, the man had been heckling her about how attractive she was for the entire show, and if memory serves me right, the specific catcall that got under her skin was "marry me now," which is an aggressive and odd thing to say to a stranger.

I'm sure it must get awfully tiring to perform night in and night out and have a bunch of men just yell at you about your appearance during every show with little appreciation for the art you make.

Do women not do this to male performers they're obsessed with? I've seen it all the time at shows. Women going nuts for the male lead singer. Hell, my ex was like that with Davey Havok from AFI. It was obnoxious. I've heard stories of women grabbing his balls when he goes into the crowd. That's pretty f'd up.

“Do women not do this to male performers they're obsessed with?”

Yeah, this is a valid and thoughtful point. I certainly can’t deny it. I also don’t think it makes Lauren any less justified in her actions, and it’s important to remember the extra danger and power this dynamic has against female performers due to our patriarchal societies and the rape culture perpetrated within them. Regardless, it’s certainly a double standard that should be reconciled.

Lauren has been dealing with shitty men for a long time, I remember she was wearing a short skirt in a music video and she was accused of being a slut for doing it. She’s constantly harassed at shows, commented on for her looks, and several times I’ve seen people say the bands popularity rests entirely on how “cute” she is. She’s not putting up with shit anymore, and that gets her more shit. She’s not insufferable, the only thing she does that rubs me the wrong way is her reaction to criticism of their music. She can’t take negative criticism very well, and that’s led to many thinking she’s egotistical

Lauren is cute as fuck, shut up lmao

i follow her on the gram, she's posted nothing that i've noticed that made me think "wow, what an insufferable douche". i imagine she's had to deal with plenty of shitty men in her position so tbh, go off queen
