The first thing I did when I got out of Mockingjay:Part 2 was check my phone to see if 25 was available. It was. So I did what anybody would do. Got in my car. Got some hot cocoa. And drove around Nashville aimlessly listening to it in its entirety.
Here are my initial, first-listen reactions:
We’ve all talked about it enough but I’m gonna talk about it a little longer. This is an incredible single, but an even more incredible opener to an album. And it’s not only a perfect opener to her album, but just a perfect opener to her as an artist and a human. Like hello. It’s me. I’m back. Sorry it’s been so long. Here’s what I’ve learned from the heartbreak you suffered through with me 4 years ago.
The perfect, sassy second track to this make-up album.
This one begins like the haunting, cathedral likeness of a Florence and the Machine song and all I have to say is: straight. fire.
In New York this past week she declared this her “favorite song she’s ever written”. This song feels so classic. It also feels a little reminiscent of “Take it All” and “One and Only” so obvi I’m fan.
Also those BGVS.
Love that there’s a track with just her and the piano. It’s needed.
The production of this one is so good and a nice change in the middle of the album. The song is also just a killer concept.
If you’re not the one for me, why do I hate the idea of being free And if I’m not the one for you, you’ve gotta stop holding me the way you do
Ugh. I feel like this’ll be the one I love more and more with every listen.
Reaching this track, I feel like reaching the “Cassiopeia” of Sara Bareilles’ Blessed Unrest. The kinda off-beat, conceptual song.
There was something in the water and now that something’s in me
I love that she pulled us in geographically, she really hasn’t done that yet!
I love writing songs that play with the light and the dark concept so I was already sold on this one. The lyrics of this one are incredible. Listened to this while getting my hot chocolate at the Starbucks drive thru.
First listen, probably my least fav. That could change tho.
Her vocals on this.
Why don’t we just play pretend like we’re not scared of what’s coming next, or scared of having nothing leftGive me a memory I can useIt matters how this ends ‘cause what if I never love again?
Why don’t we just play pretend like we’re not scared of what’s coming next, or scared of having nothing left
Give me a memory I can use
It matters how this ends ‘cause what if I never love again?
This didn’t feel like “oh I need to write a happy song cause that’s what I told people I would do.” This song feels like truth.
I find it funny that you’re the only one I never looked forAnd there is something ’bout the way you love me that finally feels like home
I find it funny that you’re the only one I never looked for
And there is something ’bout the way you love me that finally feels like home
The necessary conclusion.
These are just my initial, first-listen reactions. I can’t way to dig in more. I also hope this is up on Spotify tomorrow ‘cause Apple Music still confuses me.
