solar power is like that movie where everyone forgets the beatles existed, except she's playing jack johnson covers to hippies over zoom

Despite the polarizing and lukewarm reviews, I believe that Solar Power is definitely one of the albums of all time.

Can we just start a petition to ban Jack Antonoff from producing albums that somehow keeps turning idiosyncratic pop singers into generic and shallow-sounding folk princesses? This like the third dud he made this year.

Lorde has not yet disappointed but I have a bad feeling about this release

1.5 very poorNickLizard49 | August 23rd 21

Sounds like a collection of covers of Lana Del
Rey's most uninspired b-sides and outtakes.

3.0 goodlz41 | August 20th 21

Not me trying to vibe to Lorde's hot girl summer album while my mental health gets raw-dogged by 200 days of lockdown. Best Songs: 'Fallen Fruit', 'Stoned at the Nail Salon'

1.5 very poorfog | August 20th 21

Another misleading album title, I thought this would be a meditation on inverters and deep cycle batteries

2.5 averagetherollingstoned | August 20th 21

I tried to be optimistic, and maybe it?s cause I just moved to Portland and it?s a joke how poor I am, but these songs complaining about being a millionaire and picking up a drug habit along the way aren?t really doing it for me. 2-3 songs that are half-bops and the rest is a a mediocre Phoebe bridgers impression, just with no pants instead of a skeleton onesie.

Lorde - California Lyrics - Genius
Yeah, order more bottles, order more models
Order more hours, shots on an island
Hotter than the summer, the winter couldn't chill me
Young free and wildin', order more kidneys

Aside from the first three and last couple of tracks this is meandering background music. rEvery Matt Chamberlain appearance is ace, tho

1.5 very poorcharlopiano | September 28th 21

It seems like Antonoff produced both Sling and Solar Power the exact same way, but a slow, hushed, percussion-less prods work for the indie folk girl, but not for the pop girl, especially if this album is supposed to be "happy". I like some tracks here and there, but Lorde, please put some drums and bass on these tracks, this lacks any sort of dynamism

Bump

2.5 averageboredcore | August 27th 21

There?s a saying that the age at which you get famous is the age you stop maturing as a person. That worked for Lorde really well on his first two records...This one it's incredibly hard to tell. rNot sure if this is a good unexpected turn or just flat out sucks.rThe pandemic lingers over this in a lot of ways and I could see it being critically reevaluated as a misunderstood cult classic. rThe songs are a bit shit though.rThis is to Lorde what Be Here Now is to Oasis.

Just as bad as its cover.

Lorde has me Borde on this album where she does an impression of Lana Del Ray

2.0 poorXenophanes EMERITUS | August 22nd 21

Instantly iconic album cover aside, this is awful.

Bump

2.5 averagePrincyAli | August 20th 21

Other than the first and last few songs, everything else sounds like pretty background noise. 2.5/5 Favs: The Path, Solar Power, Stoned at the Nail Salon, Fallen Fruit, Mood Ring, Oceanic Feeling

2.0 poorDJTrpTrp | August 20th 21

What an absolute snoozefest of an album. Had such potential as an artist back in 2013. The slump continues.

Bump

2.5 averageErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | August 20th 21

Gotta say, this cutesy folk-inspired record is nice and pretty. However, it's so shallow that its pleasantness borders with boringness. Or maybe it's intrinsically boring bordering on pleasantness. 2.4
