    I already don't like her voice on this.

    She's getting airplay on Radio 2 and this is the track that's going to sell the album? Yikes.

    Wings is not one of the tracks I'm expecting to love from the reviews so far lol.

    I love the vocal production, it sounds like she sits right next to you. But gosh, those strained high-pitched vocals. Ouch

    I think she's singing it really well actually. It's not cooey baby voice, its actually good control. She might struggle live with this one though. But if that's one of the weaker tracks, whatever.

    I just caught the end of Wings - it kinda reminded me of Kate Bush - lol. I kind of like it.

    No shit, if Wings had been the first taste of the new album, y'all would've called this the much-feared continuation of Flicker.

    Wings was nice, but maybe a bit slight? I didn't mind the vocals, and I'm sure my feelings about it is going to change over time. Perfectly pleasant though. Isn't it at the bottom of Jakes list?

    You can rewind the stream and listen. I'm listening now. It is certainly...different. I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

    So far we have four VERY different songs but there's a cohesion to the production that I am god damn impressed by. I don't know what I make of it either, but I for sure did not hate it. No song so far has given me unpleasant feelings.
