    Sorry to be a bore but there's a glaring typo in the title of this thread. It should be SOTY. That's all.

    ^ It took me about a minute to see what mistake I did with that title
    And I agree!

    Has that been confirmed? I thought it was more of a rumor that someone had heard from some record label representative. A video for RK seems so... odd.

    Can't quite believe I'm writing this but RK has officially displaced Pretty Good Year as my favourite Tori track (and therefore my favourite track by anyone). This has nearly happened before - CALS and iieee came close). It may not last but.... Christ on a bike what a song ❤️❤️❤️

    I'm excited and afraid at the same time what a video for this song might look like...

    I don't want to repeat myself, but well actually in this case I do:
    This song is just wow unbelievable! It's amazing. I think it's incredible
    I mean there are other good songs on the album, but this is just on the next level.
    Can't praise it enough.
    I keep listening to it repeatedly

    It's like Erato the Muse took all the best bits from Gold Dust, Winter's Carol, Garlands, The Beekeeper and Oysters and added layer on layer of frost and defiance and magic and made the most sublime thing she has ever recorded. I am struck dumb by how good this is ❤️

    Sigh....I can't believe that I thought this was boring on first listen. I must have been out of my mind. It's quickly becoming one of my all time favorites.

    I've just discovered that "you at the still point of the turning world" is a direct quote from TS Eliot's Burnt Norton, (Four Quartets):

    At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
    Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
    But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
    Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
    Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
    There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
    Beautiful quote from an amazing poem.
    "If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."

    I don't remember the last time a song had staying power for me the way Reindeer King does. It's fucking mindblowing. Every time I listen to it it's a sonic experience and it takes me places. I remain completely in awe.

    i usually just pretend that the ~visualettes~ never happened [], but here you go.
    Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
