    She looks and sounds fantastic, of course.

    I'm loving 400 Lux and Buzzcut Season!

    I'm so excited to listen. I think I'll reserve for when I'm not at work and can take it all in. Wooo! Can't wait to read everyone's thoughts.

    GLORY AND GORE, Y'ALL. When that one was over, I started it again immediately. Love it.

    I am just so impressed with her lyrics.

    Thoughts upon my first listen: I love love love love it. It made me feel sixteen again, in an ultra-depressing but feel good kind of way. Lorde is a dreamer and it comes across in all of her music.

    Ribs really struck a nerve with me - a highlight from all of the new tracks, but I can't say there was one song I didn't like.

    Excited to see people are loving it! I'm going to listen tonight.

    In the meantime, check out her amazing new Metro magazine cover.

    Listened on my commute today.

    Definitely one of my favorites of the year so far, even after just 1 listen. It really lives up to the hype, in my opinion. If you enjoy "Royals," "Tennis Court," or any of her songs really, I don't see how the album will disappoint you. If anything it elevates her sound tenfold with better lyrics, stronger melodies, and atmospheric production. I can't pick favorites just yet, but the studio version of "Ribs" really struck a nerve. Also loved "Glory and Gore" and "White Teeth Teens." STELLAR debut, one of the strongest I've heard from a new artist in a while.

    I think a lot of people on this forum will enjoy it, so I expect to see this thread grow fairly quickly once the word gets out!

    400 Lux and Buzzcut Season and Glory and Gore put me through it. But it's all great.

    EDIT: One thing I'm not sure about is the organization of the track list. But then, I always complain about that with practically every new record I listen to, so it's probably just me.

    I heard "Royals" for the first time on iTunes Radio today and was intrigued. I will check her out.

    Here's her performance of Royals on Jools Holland the other night.

    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Lorde on SNL now that the season is getting ready to start.
