    Ah, okay. I think that's maybe better described as "abstract"

    No. There is no objectivity in music. It's all Subjective.

    Just heard that short Kiiara clip. Her voice sounds decent to me, it's mainly the style I can't get into. Is she using some sort of "accent", or is that how her actual voice always sounds? I'm also hoping that there will be minimal (preferably no) auto-tune in "Heavy". There's just something really great about hearing people's natural voices, rather than multiple layers of processing over someone's voice.

    Edit: According to Kiiara's Wikipedia page, it says that her greatest influences musically are Linkin Park and Eminem, along with others. It now makes sense why she would want to collaborate with LP, even if just for one song.

    While I am anticipating the release of "Heavy", I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at all nervous about it. Not being an enthusiast of current pop music has caused me to not look forward to LP7 as much as I would typically look forward to a new LP album. Perhaps this will be the album that actually gets me into pop/mainstream, if it is interesting enough.

    As for the lead single, it could go either way at this point with fan and mainstream reception.

    People complaining about the simple lyrics even before the song has dropped in should see this -

    These are lyrics to Everglow by Coldplay


    oh they say people come, say people go
    this particular diamond was extra special
    and though you might be gone, and the world may not know
    still I see you, celestial

    like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
    like an eagle you circled, in perfect purple
    so how come things move on, how come cars don’t slow
    when it feels like the end of my world
    when I should but I can’t let you go?

    but when I’m cold, cold
    oh when I’m cold, cold
    there’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
    there’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

    like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
    and we swore on that night we’d be friends til we die
    but the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
    life as short as the falling of snow
    and now I’m gonna miss you I know

    but when I’m cold, cold
    in water rolled, salt
    I know that you’re with me and the way you will show
    and you’re with me wherever I go
    and you give me this feeling this everglow

    oh- I I I I
    what I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold
    yeah I live for this feeling this everglow

    so if you love someone, you should let them know
    oh the light that you left me will everglow


    Pretty basic, eh?

    The song is gold though!
    So calm down and believe in LP

    Those lyrics aren't basic. There's some beautiful imagery in there.

    This is basic.

    Thats what Im trying to say.

    Here's another song called Everglow... By Starset.

    You come in waves
    Till you're all I know
    Then you fade away
    Into nothing
    Weighed down by dark matter inside
    You leave me frozen
    You leave me froze in time
    In your

    Everglow
    You'll never know
    The beauty I see when you open your shadows
    Everglow
    They'll never know
    The worlds I see in the darkness you don't show

    Ohh
    Falling through a landslide
    Feeling like the first time I felt you
    Ohh
    Caught inside the field lines
    That pull me to the land mines
    Inside you
    Black hole eyes won't gaze now
    Drawn in just the same
    You leave me frozen
    You leave me frozen inside

    Come.
    I’ll show every ghost in me.
    Take my pain into you.

    Again, passive aggressive. You won't respond to points. It's all condescension. You speak of empathy but you're not listening nor seek clarification before making bogus associations. I'm not here to fight. I'm here to defend myself from personal attacks. You and I both know i'm not attacking depressed people. I'm onto your act. Now you seem to be retreating.

    I asked you to think about how your post might be interpreted in the way that several people other than me have interpreted it instead of placing all the blame on the people reading it that way. That ain't passive aggressive.

    That doesn't mean I'm saying you actually were saying what those people read it as. That means that there's reason within that post for people to interpret it that way, and that in order to prevent similar misunderstandings with your posts in the future you should understand where this came from before lashing out at people for reading it that way.

    The others responded reasonably. You personally attacked me and said I'm calling depressed people immature. Do you honestly believe that in your heart? That's the passive aggressiveness i'm referring to. I responded and said ask for clarification before publicly attacking people. I dislike people who misconstrue words and respond with cynicism.

    Are you kidding me? When you become a parent and your children bicker--which isn't a farfetched analogy in this instance---are you going to tell them to shut up because it's fucking annoying? The internet is a such a black hole. This is why i don't post. People just don't have manners and conflict resolution skills. It's just trolling and telling people to shut up. Been a lurker since 2005, but am done with this website now. Adios.
